Weekend Cook and Tell: Squash Invasion!

We get so much zucchini here in MN that last year I did a post with links to a bunch of my recipes, talked about how to freeze it & make it into pickles.

Which celebrity chef is more "Celebrity" than Chef?

Totally Sandra Lee, I feel like she's more of a food stylist & the style is scary.

With Rachel Ray, she's never said she's a trained chef & is just a cook. Though I do have problems with the recipes of her's I've tried. It seems that she is so hooked on this 30 minute thing that the times in the recipes are not realistic, often things have not reduced or softened enough in the time she gives. Also her portion size is gigantic! Her 4 servings is anywhere from 6 - 8.

As for the comment on Jamie Oliver. He did the healthy eating thing in the UK before he came over & did it in the states.

Weekend Cook and Tell: Kernels of Deliciousness

I made some sweet corn waffles & topped them with chicken zucchini & some maple gastrique over the weekend, yummy!

Then yesterday I did sweet corn & poblano quesadillas which was wonderful too.

I think one of my fondest pig memories has to be the Fig & Pig ice cream that closed out the anniversary dinner at Broders in Minneapolis.

Cook the Book: Eugenia Bone's 'Well-Preserved'

Last year I only did greens & corn but this year we have planted a garden with the idea of preserving a lot of it, so there will be tomatoes, whole & for salsa, pickles, spinach & jams!

Where to Eat in London?

Wow, thanks for the great input LondonM. We aren't planning the trip around food but food is always an important part of any trip we take. Borough Market is top on our list for the weekend. We are also planning on spending some time in the food halls at Harrods.
We hear that the restaurant scene is London is one of the best there is right now. I think we are interested in restaurants that serve great food but aren't the most expensive more than quick bites. We definitely want to get a good curry & have been told to head to Brick Lane for that.
Thanks for the pub recommendation as I'm sure that is something we'll want to do as well.

Pork butt smoking all day on our backyard grill & the family gathered around the picnic table to eat it.

Sunday Brunch: Marian Burros' Macaroni and Cheese

I love the one we make with gruyere & caramelized onions topped with panko. Its good with blue cheese too.

Probably the pork butt my husband slow grilled one day this summer. We added a Carolina Mop & served it on buns. It was so good my family ate every last shred.
