I prepared all this food. The written content and photographs are mine unless otherwise specified. I try out a lot of recipes from other sources, but always give credit where it is due. Of course, sometimes pages disappear, and the links no longer work. If that happens, hopefully I have included enough information for you to find the original source.
This blog is meant to be a convivial space, a place where I can share my thoughts, recipes, and story with you. If you like what you see and want to share it with others, remember to attribute it properly. As a courtesy, please do ask for permission if you want to use my content. It will almost always be granted unless you are using it for commercial purposes.
Also, sometimes I tell you about things that I like. I haven't been paid to do this — but wouldn't that be nice? Picture it: a lifetime's supply of Diamond Crystal Kosher Salt . . .

As many of you know, one of the major inspirations for this blog was High Point Farm’s Meat CSA — my very first CSA ever. CSA stands for Community Supported Agriculture. The basic CSA model is that you become a … Continue reading

“Hey, T! What do you do with your minute steak?” “I don’t know,” Tomoko texted back, “It’s hard because of how it’s sliced. What do you do with it?” “Steak sandwiches usually, but I was kind of looking for something … Continue reading
The idea was first planted in my head after reading a post that SweaterMeat put up on Ugly Food Tastes Better back in November: corned beef. Fatty, salty, flavorful corned beef. Yum. But then came the holidays and that thought got … Continue reading
