The place that started it all was a local Chinese buffet here in Michigan. After frequent visits to the buffet over the years, I finally decided to take a stab at cooking my own Chinese dishes at home. The majority of the dishes were delicious and I began cooking different Chinese meals every week, but I had always wanted more variety just like the buffet.

7 Reasons Beer Makes a Better Fry Batter - Food News - “Beer,” write W. Wayt Gibbs and Nathan Myhrvold in Scientific American, “makes such a great base for batter because it simultaneously adds three ingredients—carbon dioxide, foaming agents and alcohol—each of which brings to bear different aspects of physics and chemistry to make [a] crust light and crisp.” Beer is the classic batter moistener for those hunks of cod in a really top-notch basket of fish and chips. It largely has to do with the amount of CO2 gas in beer. Gasses tend to dissolve at lower temperatures, not high.

Grilled Cheese Social I've got to get this off of my chest. I care about bees. Like a lot.

Pig Candy! How can you possibly go wrong with peppered bacon coated with dark brownsugar, baked, then glazed with pure maple syrup mixed with a little cayenne? Yeah, it's naughty good. The great folks at Burger's Smokehouse sent me some of their "crazy thick" (1/4") dry-cured bacon to try, so I thought I'd give it a proper treatment. Right out of the gate, let me say that this bacon is outstanding! Order some up, and thank me later.
