The Grid Begins for My Kitchen

I’m moving my The Inefficient Kitchen site over to The Grid. The site will be down until at least morning, then I’ll see how she’s working. I’ve waited over a year to do this, and am founding member 49,742 (I think). I have no idea what is going to happen, what it will grow into. I’m intrigued […]

The Grid Begins for My Kitchen

I’m moving my The Inefficient Kitchen site over to The Grid. The site will be down until at least morning, then I’ll see how she’s working. I’ve waited over a year to do this, and am founding member 49,742 (I think). I have no idea what is going to happen, what it will grow into. I’m intrigued…

Shape, Texture, Taste, Sound – You Won’t Believe #4

Look to your right. Run your hand along what’s there – don’t be out of control with this idea, I’m by myself on a couch! I realize some of you may be on a bus or in an office or an airplane. Be appropriate and don’t freak out anybody, ok?  I love to touch things,…

Grilled fruit? Yes please

Amazing what you can do in 30 minutes with a little thought. Grilled white peaches and mango with citrus shrimp and scallops, baby spinach and mixed greens and a fresh rosemary roll sets a nice tone for the rest of the day.  Sweet, sour and yummy. The crumbled honey goat cheese with the greens wrapped…

Winter Food Inspiration from Maize

March showed up here in Sellersville yesterday with 4″ of snow and a topping of ice. I now officially am in need of sunshine, warmth and green grass/leaves/vegetation. But, instead of curling up under a blanket and wishing the day away, I figured I’d have a little fun in the kitchen.

Braised short ribs and spaetzle – warmth in the kitchen

I admit it.  I’m not really a fan of the traditional Thanksgiving meal.  I’m not a fan of turkey. Another meal of a 20 pound bird when I cook enough chicken over the course of the calendar feels like a bit much.  Plus, the way I cook these days, it’s just SO MUCH FOOD.  I…

How often do you take time to breathe?

There are days when energy is flowing from you like a raging spring melt from a glacier down a mountain.  Others feel more like the misty morning of a humid July summer dawn.  In my case today, I sense the stiff, cold, dank, overcast March that is Bucks County, PA.  Nothing sinister happening here, just…

Make Your Kitchen Smell Yummy! Sausage and Wild Mushroom Risotto

Tonight I did something that is becoming easier to accomplish, and that is making risotto.  Yes, it’s a little time consuming, but now that I’ve figured out how to “do it”, I enjoy the process.  The fun part is concocting flavors that work.  I discovered a few with this dish that worked well.  My goal…

New Kitchen for a Few Days Brings New Ideas

I’m feeling very grateful to have the chance to create a little food this week in a totally different place. Plus, I NEVER get to cook with gas! Nice work space. Beautiful outdoor space. Beyond gorgeous surroundings. Lucky man, I am.

Fun with Cauliflower & Other Food Lately

Here are some dishes I’ve made in the past few weeks. I’ve written before that cooking has turned out to be quite a fun thing for me. As summer kicks into full gear, my herbs are healthy, lots of vegetable stands are in my area, the grill is used often and we find that eating…

The World Did Not End, so I Made Green Chile Rellenos

It’s December 21 and as far as I can tell the world is still here. Other than a deluge outside that has produced 2″ inches of rain overnight and spawned flood warnings in my area, all seems to be in order. The weather has been very unfriendly towards golf, which has forced me back to…
