    Chinese sweet sausage - what to do with it

    I will through a couple of links in the on top of the rice in a rice cooker before cooking the rice. When the rice is done, so is the sausage. It is also good sliced and stir-fried in Chinese dishes. I also like it in omelets.

    Favorite Instant Ramen?

    I eat a lot of instant ramen at work. We have a coffee maker that has a hot water tap on it. I keep a bowl here at work so I am just bringing in the package of ramen and some toppings (usually Narutomaki, homemade Chashu and some fresh veg). My co-works are familiar with instant ramen, but not...

    Chinese fried rice..

    When I was a kid I worked in a Chinese restaurant and was always fascinated watching the cooks.

They...

    It is a Chukabocho I had custom made by Moritaka. It is 1/3 damascus, 2/3 Kurouchi with a hammer finish. Here they are adding the hammer finish. Here is a pic of the herb garden. I wrote a story about it here.

    Pesto made with smoked pecans

    Basil is really starting to come in like weeds right now, so it is time to make pesto! I actually make my pesto with pecans since I have pecan trees in my back yard. I also smoke the pecans instead of just toasting them. Gives the pesto a Texas twist. I also hand-chop the pesto with my...

    Pellet grills...pros and cons?

    I have been cooking with one for years. Most of the stuff I post here is cooked on a traeger Texas grill. It functions best as a smoker and as a wood convection oven with its digital thermostat that maintains the temp in the grill by adjusting the amount of pellets being feed into the firepot...
