0 Comments 10 January 2015

The holidays have passed and the new year has come. Resolutions hang like a carrot on a gigantic stick and string in front of you. How are you going to make this year count? Let me ask a more weighty question: How are you going to make this year a positive experience for not only [...]

How To Make Pot Roast

0 Comments 20 November 2014

Baby, it’s cold outside! Bring out the root vegetables and the beef and the red wine because it is braising season. That wonderful, olfactory-stimulating technique of cooking a tough piece of meat for hours in a rich broth until it gives up the fight and becomes fall-apart tender. If you are looking for an aromatic, [...]

Waters of Michigan

0 Comments 20 May 2014

If you ask any Michigander (Michiganian?) what their state really means to them chances are that “the water” will come up in their top five answers. There’s a purity and a peace about water that washes away any tension or anxiety we may have. The sound of a waterfall, the cool feel of a spring, [...]

Visiting Port Huron

0 Comments 19 May 2014

Situated comfortably between miles of Michigan farm land and Canada’s southern most reach, Port Huron is a city of its own. Its coastline, history, and artistic, self-sustaining vibe are what stand out. It’s a friendly city too. Walking down Main Street, people actually looked at me and said, “Hello.”  And I’m not embellishing for story’s [...]

The Millennial Foodie

0 Comments 30 March 2014

Peanut Butter and Sriracha Donuts. This is the new mindset. I’m sure there are people who will find that combination absurd. “Why can’t you just have a nice hamburger and be happy?” It’s not enough for my generation it seems. We’re suspicious of established procedures and practices. We graduated into a job market that could [...]

Half Sour Summer Pickles

0 Comments 03 February 2014

It’s cold out. Single digits. And that ground rodent from Pennsylvania just declared six more weeks of winter. Dash it all. It’s time to bring some summer into the kitchen. One of the best smells of summer is fresh dill. There are many smells that shoot me back to my childhood but to me dill [...]

A Look at “Sustainability”

0 Comments 27 January 2014

There’s a new movement in the food scene. I’m not sure exactly how long it has been around but I like it. People, especially a younger generation, are going out to eat more. And the quality of restaurant ingredients are getting better too. Condiments and pickles are in. Meat smoking, beer brewing, and spirit distilling [...]

It was a whirlwind weekend in Detroit. From having drinks at the Sugar House, Duly’s Coney Dogs at 1:30 in the morning, and Scotty Simpson’s for lunch the next day, it’s only a time you can have in Detroit. It was my friend’s birthday wish to spend a couple of days in Detroit with some [...]
