Leek Risotto

 

It’s my first risotto and Chef Gordon Ramsay would be proud. It’s very easy. I guess after watching all the donkeys on Hell’s Kitchen screw it up, I’ve been very, very afraid. Psht, nothing to it.

What’s for dinner? Finglerling Potato Salad with Ale Dressing

Tonight I grilled steaks. I just used salt and pepper. I like marinades but sometimes I just like it simple, especially, when I’m making something different that I want to stand out from the main meat.

I didn’t want the standard baked potato, and I didn’t want rice and a green vegetable. So, I tried […]

I made this Thursday night after work. I tossed it into the slow cooker around 7 PM, and it was done at 10:30 – just in time for bed. Then all I had to do today was toss the buns into the toaster and heat the chicken in the microwave […]
