Tailgating Party Kit Giveaway

This post is sponsored by the National Pork Board as part of the Tailgating with Pork and Kroger Program.

The National Pork Board and Kroger sponsored my tailgate! I loaded up on beer, snacks, and pork at Kroger, spent Saturday afternoon skewering kebabs, and left for the Cleveland Muni lot really early in the morning to tailgate with my brothers and some friends.This was Ben’s first trip to a live Browns game, and his first exposure to the Muni lot crowd. It’s…um….quite a slice of humanity. We got to the lot at 7AM. I still needed my thermos of coffee, but some of our fellow tailgaters had moved on to harder beverages already.

Giveaway Winner for Everything Healthy Pressure Cooker Cookbook

We have a winner! Thank you for the great pressure cooker stories. (To see the stories, read the comments attached to this post.) Now, I have to remind everyone – modern pressure cookers are a lot safer than the pressure cookers our grandmothers used. They have multiple safety valves. The worst case scenario is the pressure gasket pushing out and a noisy blast of steam escaping into the kitchen. The winner, selected by Random.org is comment #40, by Stephanie. Her story: The first time I used a pressure cooker, I was at my boyfriend’s parents house. I followed directions to a TEE! (Er.) I actually still do not know how my pot roast ended up everywhere. Peas and carrots as far as the eye could see. SUPER, super fun and not embarrassing at all. Anyway, I swear it was the cooker. I got one for Christmas (from guess who?) and I have used it since with no problem. Congratulations, Stephanie! Email me to let me know your mailing information. Everyone else, I’m sorry, but you’ll …

Review of Planet Barbecue by Steven Raichlen (with Giveaway!)

Review (and giveaway!) of Planet Barbecue by Steven Raichlen *See the bottom of the review for the giveaway information Planet Barbecue is an all-new, globe spanning cookbook from Steven Raichlen. It follows the format of his other “big” books, Barbecue Bible, How to Grill, and BBQ USA. It is a monster of a book. Stephen leaves no stone unturned in his worldwide search for recipes. *He has said that he is going to step away from grilling books for a while; he thinks he has covered the topic in depth, and wants to try something new. I thought the same thing…two books ago. Stephen keeps finding new places to explore, and sniffing out new grilling recipes. So, here’s my personal plea. Stephen! Don’t go! We still need you! This book is stuffed with inspiration for a griller looking for something new to try. I’ve got two dozen recipes tabbed for future use…and that’s only because I ran out of tabs. I’ve already tried out some of these recipes; I was inspired by his section on …
