Recipe du Jour: Rosemary Lager Focaccia for Dipping…

This entry is part of a series, RdJ»

Here’s a quick, summery bread recipe that uses beer. (Yes, I’m on a beer-cooking kick. You’ll just have to suffer.) It’s easy to make, and I think it’s ideal for cutting into crouton-sized pieces and dipping into olive oil:

1 1/4 cups lager beer (I suggest Paulaner, […]

Tomatoes, Tomatoes Everywhere; What to Do? East India Sauce!

This entry is part of a series, RdJ»

Our small patch of a dozen tomato plants has gone into overdrive this week. Especially the alien cherry tomatoes that have grown to over eight feet tall. There’s only two of them in the garden, but they’re producing a quart of tasty red spheres each day. […]

Is That Alligator? Sloppy Joes, Cajun Style
