Old School Brisket (with Aaron Franklin’s BBQ Sauce)

     I’ve found my new method of cooking brisket and its “Old School”!! If you’ve listened to bbqers talk brisket, or read any bbq forums, you’ve probably found out there are a ton of ways to tackle this troublesome hunk of cow. Low and slow or turbo? Wrap during the cook or leave alone? If you… Continue reading Old School Brisket (with Aaron Franklin’s BBQ Sauce)

The Most Hated Vegetable

     Brussels sprouts…they have to be one of the most hated vegetables on the planet  (and yes there is an “s” at the end of Brussels, which is also capitalized, BTW). It ranks above broccoli, spinach, beets and lima beans as the most despised according to some polls I read. It’s not hard to see why.… Continue reading The Most Hated Vegetable

Grilled Blackened Trout w/ Horseradish and Tarragon Tartar Sauce (updated 2/11/14)

      Sticking with our current trend of trying to cook a bit healthier, I bring you our version of blackened trout. I say “our version” because we didn’t quite cook it the way it is supposed to be cooked.      For those unfamiliar with blackening, it is a cooking technique used in the preparation of fish… Continue reading Grilled Blackened Trout w/ Horseradish and Tarragon Tartar Sauce (updated 2/11/14)

Four-Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms (Diabetic Friendly)

     I like mushrooms. Nowhere near as much as Mrs. G, though. She loves her some fungus. Sauteed mushrooms with a steak, The Pioneer Woman’s Burgundy Mushrooms, mushrooms on her pizza, mushrooms in her salad, fried mushrooms. Heck, she’d eat mushrooms with her mushrooms. That’s why I knew when I saw this recipe glancing through our… Continue reading Four-Cheese Stuffed Mushrooms (Diabetic Friendly)

Very Berry Sorbet

     If you follow our Facebook page, you probably saw yesterday that I bought my first cookbook in a very long time. And it was a diabetic cookbook.      Yes, I went to the Doc yesterday and he did a blood sugar test on me. I scored a 216! WooHoo!! High scores are good, right?… Continue reading Very Berry Sorbet

Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings

Chicken Wings! I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…they are my 5th food group. Mrs. G thinks I might be obsessed with them and she maybe right. Garlic Parmesan is one I’ve been staying away from. I’m never sure when I read recipes for them if the author means the grated parmesan in the green can… Continue reading Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings
