Lazy Sunday at the Ranch

When it’s this hot, we don’t get out and move around a lot. Oh, we grilled sausage for lunch (it was very good). I say “we” because it’s polite. However, it’s also a Royal “We.” I stayed inside and made sure the margarita machine ran on schedule. (It’s particularly tough duty, that; but we […]

Vegetables and Grilling Go Together Like, Like…

Okay, I get it. Most folks don’t think of vegetables when grilling. So imagine you’re a vegetarian… (In my case, a purely theoretical exercise; your mileage may vary.) See the problem? Most of the vegetarians and vegans I know (the “Type V” personality; time to come out of the garden!) like grilled vegetables, yet […]

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) […]

Killer Ribs, or Jitterbug's Secret Recipe Has Finally Met Its Match

Yesterday’s massive pigout light repast from the grill had me a bit sated at the time, but as dinner loomed on the horizon today I was hungry for more from the grill. (Loomed on the Horizon = It was after breakfast sometime, and I had to come up with an idea.) Two teenaged boys […]

The Bachelor Brigade Does Chicken (and More)

After a long week sweating over a hot research project, I was ready to kill and grill something. Deric and Kai had spent the day moving dead trees and burning them, so they had mostly gotten their Real Man requirements done. Especially the burning something dead. However, their fire wasn’t really suited for cooking; […]

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 […]
