Keeping it Cooking

Keeping the stomach and the wallet in mind

Regional Foods

I talked about how food around the world differs and the influences of culture and religion on those dishes. I thought it was pertinent to mention that food just around the United States is vastly different. We have dishes that identify with specific areas such as New England chowder, Maine lobster, New Orleans gumbo, and…

Cooking With Fats and Oils

Cast Iron Cooking

Today I want to talk to you about one of my favorite kitchen tools: a cast-iron skillet. Now I own multiple cast-iron pans and a couple of Dutch ovens, and I love all of them, and I use all of them very frequently. Cast iron is a great way to cook because you can get…

Making your dishes at home is a great way to experience the roots and the traditions of different countries and their cuisines. My favorite food is…
