Fish 4 Friday: Zesty Grilled Trout, Anyone? How About With Tamarind?

It may be GYCOM, but that doesn’t mean everything’s gotta be chili or soup. We’ll take a small detour today, into the realm of grilled fish. It’s still grilling weather down here, and I know that trout season is still rolling along in other locales. Here’s a way to avoid the dreaded, boring “Same […]

Grilling Weekend: Chicken and Ribs

The hot weather continues here in central Texas; which isn’t much news if you’re familiar with the region. Nothing swirling in the Gulf to cool us off either. Which means It’s Grilling Time again!

Wifey got home from playing with the new baby, her sister’s, for what seemed like a month. It wasn’t quite that […]

More Bachelor Brigade Grub: Grilled Hamburgers Save the Day

It was a longer day than normal today at the ol’ lab. I got home I didn’t really feel like taking much time to fix dinner. Shoot, I was so tired I even considered not firing up the grill. Then I remembered that a) we don’t have a range in the Barracks, and b) […]

Monday Mildies: Braised Pork Chops

Grilling isn’t the only way to prepare tasty pork chops. It may be the oldest, and I would argue grilling gives the best flavor. However, sometimes you don’t have a grill handy. Or it’s busted. (Send immediately for help, of course.) Or you live where the environmental regulations won’t let you grill. Whatever the […]

Grilled Goodies Redux: Orange-Ginger Pork Chops

Deric is learning how to cook. He’s one of the latest additions to the Clan, as he was adopted a couple years back. He’s spending the summer at the Ranch, working and learning. He wants to know everything about cooking! Unfortunately, he wants to know it all before morning. (I’m that good, just not […]
