PERNIL

Published by
Bone-in pork shoulder (Pernil) is an awesome cut of meat. It’s where value + flavor= feeds a large crowd. Marinating in a combo of or single citrus (grapefruit, orange, lime), oregano, garlic, hot pepper, olive oil, salt and back pepper. Best after 2 days of marinating but I’ll be cooking this today and it’ll still… View Article

HANDMADE CAPPUCCINO

Published by
I’ve used many fancy espresso machines and battery powered milk foamers etc over the years but love making cappuccinos without a machine. Best coffee (personal choice) finely ground and made in a stove top moka coffee pot. Then whole milk is heated in the microwave until hot but not scalded and I take a small… View Article

MORE ON CABBAGE- KALE

Published by
Not to beat a dead cabbage but–this variety of cabbage which behaves like kale is kind of insane as pointed out on yesterdays MH FB page post by Kempe Minifie (former executive food editor Gourmet magazine). Should you have a garden, I recommend getting these seeds. Unlike most other cabbages, there is so little water… View Article

SATURDAY SPOILS

Published by
Dead of winter farmers market booty. Dinner thoughts are Chicken roast with cipolini onions and fingerling potatoes, sauted kale-cabbage, apple pie. But, first will pilfer a few dinner fingerlings for a breakfast dish inspired by the folks at Momofuko noodle bar. Crispy bacon, scallions and a slow poached egg.

FIFTEEN

Published by
We’re down one soccer player and dog walker but up a french toast maker (first time, not bad). He actually followed the sub recipe in the MH stuffed french toast recipe. It took two hours to make and his version of clean-up doesn’t exactly match mine but—baby steps folks, baby steps (in more ways than… View Article

A FEW THOUGHTS ON SUPER BOWL EATS

Published by
Confession: American football is not my favorite sport although I do love football (as in soccer). Both kinds of football dominate our house. And no fall weekend is devoid of either. Usually, I take the time to see a movie, shop, chill with a friend or just do about any other activity other than football…. View Article
