Testing a new recipe – rice mix pilaf coming soon!
A picture from this week’s recipe. Sirloin roast incoming! Based on the question I got over Thanksgiving, would you worry less about dry brining being “too salty” if it was called salting early?
Finishing up this year’s batch of turkey broth. Liquid gold, ready for the freezer! (And to make a bit pot of Day-After-Thanksgiving Soup.) This is batch one of three. I have bones from two turkeys and one turkey breast. Luckily for me, one carcass is from my dad’s smoked turkey – smoked turkey carcasses make fantastic soup. A programming note – this year’s Turkey soup is coming soon. (I’ve been too busy making broth to finish the soup recipe.) If you freeze, say, 8 cups of broth, I’ll have something new for you to try soon.
Prepping for my tailgate a few weeks ago with sous vide boneless short ribs.
I’m working on a pumpkin cheesecake recipe…and it’s not cooperating. I think I’m narrowing down the issues – cheesecake on the left cooked for 20 minutes, on the right for 25 minutes. It looks like, between those two times, it goes from “cheesecake” to “soufflé”. I’m going to try cutting the time even more, just to see what it looks like.
It’s tailgating time! This picture is from the Muni lot on the shores of Lake Erie, and my brother’s annual Browns tailgate. The weather is wonderful today – a warm, sunny, late October day. A perfect day for tailgating. (The football? Not so much. I’m a long-suffering Browns fan.)
Working on Vegetable Beef Soup for the pressure cooker – coming soon!
Ugh, what a day. Videos not working out, hard drive troubles, manufacturing defects on new equipment. One of those “If it wasn’t for bad luck, I’d have no luck at all” kind of days. Penne pasta post coming soon – when I can get at the pictures on my hard drive. I’ve got a backup, and a backup to the backup…but I may need a new drive to restore the backups. Grr. (Luckily, this picture was synced to iCloud, so I could post it from my iPad.)
Working on a new recipe…penne with sausage and peppers is coming soon.

I couldn’t help it. There was a sale on kale at the grocery store. The DadCooksDinner limited edition t-shirt is available through Thursday, September 29th at 11PM. If you want one, don’t forget to order! Click here to check them out. [Teespring.com]
A little sausage gravy with biscuits for breakfast today. Recipe here: Sausage Gravy.
Saturday Night dinner – grilled shrimp skewers.
I spent most of the afternoon yesterday trimming and sectioning a packer brisket from my friends over at Certified Angus Beef. I’ve got so much beef, and a reminder of how skilled butchers are with their knives. I have good knife skills…for a home chef. A couple of pressure cooker beef brisket recipes will be coming your way soon…
This picture is showing off my brother Pat’s culinary talents. He smoked a whole 12-pound brisket for about 20 hours. (This pic is after about 12 hours of cooking). It was amazing – and the brisket enchiladas he made with the leftovers may have been even better…
My brother Matt was busy at the cottage last week…stay tuned for more…
The kids still have a few weeks left until school starts, but my summer vacation is over today. Sigh. Back to the daily grind.
The Dad Cooks Dinner tour of the East Coast is over…but vacation is not! We’re back in Ohio, spending time at our cottage on Lake Erie and recovering from our travel by relaxing at the beach.
Having a great time in Downeast Maine – and eating lots of lobster. Lots and lots of lobster. (Steamed lobster, lobster rolls, lobster stew…I love it all.)
We’re on the road, visiting Montreal, and I had to visit a market – specifically, Jean-Talon Market. Montreal Smoked Meat is next on the itinerary – wish me luck!
Have I mentioned before that my kids are on a Teriyaki kick? My local grocery store has their “seven steaks of summer” promotion going on right now, and had a great deal on porterhouse steaks…how could I pass it up? (I used this recipe – Grilled Teriyaki Ribeye Steaks, Reverse Seared – but with porterhouses.)
Happy Father’s Day, everyone! I’m hoping to grill my Father’s Day dinner, if the rain holds out…
