Buttery Roasted Baby Potatoes with Carrots

Once upon a time, the only potatoes you could find in the grocery store were baking potatoes. These potatoes were good. But remember the old saying “variety is the spice of life?” Yeah.

Greek Lemon & Herb Roasted Chicken

My brain tends to get a multitude of ideas roaming around in it all at once.  Much of the time those ideas have nothing to do with each other, but when I’m hungry those random thoughts start to coalesce around the concept of eating something.  Shocking, I know.

Greek-Style Roasted Winter Vegetables

Those shiny, round, and bright red tomatoes at the store are lying to you.  As you pass by them they whisper to you about how good they will be.  Don’t fall for their tricks.  You know that they will be dry and flavorless, because it’s not the right season.

Cream of Broccoli and Cauliflower Soup

Repeat after me: Broccoli can taste good without being smothered in a sea of goopy, fake cheese. And I don’t mean that you should smother it in a sea of goopy, real cheese, either.

Rendered Fat (Tallow, Lard, and Schmaltz)

No, I don’t live on some isolated homestead.  Yes, I could easily go to the store and buy some lard.  No, I don’t want to because making your own is easy enough to do, and why not save money and reduce waste in the process?
