French Cooking in 10 Minutes

Sarah got me this 1930 Edouard de Pomiane book for Christmas. I highly recommend it. I say this without having cooked anything from the book, but it looks great. It comes with a recommendation from MFK Fisher, so it has to be good. The general notion is that with proper planning (and simple menus) it is possible to cook a …

Gas Station Food (Oklahoma Joe’s)

So I know I wrote about the gas station turkey in my Thanksgiving post, but I had to write this as well. I’ve been trying to eat at Oklahoma Joe’s Barbecue during several different trips to Kansas City. Last week I finally got my chance. I did feel a bit silly eating ribs at 4:00 PM knowing that a snow …

Salt Lake Brewing Company

I think I’m going to take a slightly different approach to blogging the conference the rest of the week. Everybody here is going to be writing about the Macromedia topics. So, unless something is just absolutely unbelievable I don’t plan on writing about the technology much (okay, I probably won’t be able to resist, but who knows). Instead, I’m going …

Felini — Ack

So we decided to try Felini, a new restaruant in town. First some background information. We …

Springfield, MO & BBQ

It’s looking like we’ll be moving to Springfield next August. Sarah had another round of interviews in Springfield and there’s a pretty good chance that’s where the job market will take us. After this weekend I’m starting to take to Springfield as a possible home. It’s still not KC though. Does anybody know of good BBQ in Springfield, MO? From …

New Pants == Good Bread

I have to admit that I am a bread snob. My obsession with bread lead to a nasty baking habit. For almost 6 months I didn’t buy any type of bread, just a lot of flour and yeast. Thankfully I’ve overcome the desire to bake all my bread myself. After hundreds of loaves I think I’ve finally overcome my main …

Steamed Buns

For dinner tonight we’re having Chinese steamed buns and possibly a noodle or rice dish. I’m going to try both a bbq pork and a sweet/sour chicken filling. Sarah’s sister is visiting tonight and she’s a fan of dim sum, so we figured we’d try this out on her. A local radio station (BXR) had a music therapy station at …
