This week’s dining out adventure takes us to Trummer’s on Main in Clifton, VA. We were celebrating Valentine’s Day on Friday February 13th to avoid the madness of dining out on the day of the big event. As it is with most weekends we shared this night with our friends Frank and Joy, anxious to try the 4 Course […]
I don’t know about you but I just love the taste of Peruvian Chicken (Pollo a la Brasa). I did some research and crafted this recipe to make Peruvian Chicken on the Big Green Egg. In addition to the chicken recipe I will show you how to make the Green Sauce (Aji Verde)! I hope […]
This post will feature a dish I created yesterday Caramelized Vietnamese Beef Ribs. I am excited to write this post and share my ongoing adventure with you as there are some twists to this tale I will reveal as the story unfolds. The dish was forwarded to me from a good friend Toan Thai who (as it just […]
Wednesday night I found myself outside getting the Big Green Egg ready for my Greek Stuffed Pork Tenderloin. This recipe is super easy and packed with flavor. I hope you enjoy putting it together.
This Super Bowl Sunday I wanted to try something different and that was Asian sous vide wings! I will walk you through the process and give some color commentary along the way 🙂

Our week of making stir fry dishes continues featuring this tasty Pork Tofu stir fry dish. Quick and easy this recipe is a keeper! Once again my plan to break in the Lodge Cast Iron Wok was foiled by the weather. The rain, sleet, and snow kept me inside and away from the Big Green […]
Debbie and I love going to Mon Ami here in Reston. In addition, we adore their Moules Marinieres and will go there just to eat that dish along with a bottle of wine (or at least that is what we tell ourselves before we end up ordering a full meal). We have made mussels at home several […]
What is sous-vide?! That IS the question. Well, I didn’t know it was a question until I visited London last year and had the pleasure at eating at Dinner By Heston Blumenthal in the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park. During dinner we had a chicken course that was made using the Sous-vide technique. I can tell you of […]
For this Friday Night Date night (at home) I was excited to break in my new Lodge Cast Iron Wok. Unfortunately, the sleet, freezing rain, and snow prevented me from cooking outdoors and I moved the operation inside.
