  • Smok’n Good Texas Brisket

    Smok’n Good Texas Brisket

    AKA Why you want to be my friend. 🙂 I have been working on a brisket recipe ever since my brother returned from his Texas mission.  This was by far my best. Like many of my recipes it is very little on ingredients but heavy on time and technique.  This was was on my grill/smoker […]

  • Gnocchi


    These incredible potato-pasta-pillows are one of the fondest food memories that I have from my mission.  Every missionary in Italy (that I met anyway) remembered their first Gnocchi experience, and they all went something like this… “I kept eating them until I was full and then a half an hour later I thought my stomach […]

  • Turkey Day Is Coming

    Turkey Day Is Coming

    How do I know? Because I start gathering ingredients for my Habanero-Cranberry Relish. Yes this does use a Habanero, but it is not as spicy as you would think. There is a lot of sugar and that really counteracts the heat. I would put the heat level about with Pace medium salsa, your experience may […]

  • Whole Wheat Bread-sticks with Sea Salt and Cracked Pepper

    Whole Wheat Bread-sticks with Sea Salt and Cracked Pepper

    My fabulous sister-in-law sent me a recipe via Twitter a couple of weeks ago.  I knew I had to try it and I knew that I needed to do some thing special for it.  I figured what goes better with soup than homemade chicken stock and bread-sticks. I threw everything together and baked the sticks so that […]
