    It is the first olive oil amount (third ingredient in the list), of 1/4 cup.

    I think you would be fine subbing out the Beam for Eggnog. Chances are, you wouldn't be subbing more than 1/4 cup.

    Caramel Filled Apple Dumplings

    If you haven’t realized by now that Fall is my favorite season and that apples are one of my favorite foods then either: 1. you haven’t been paying attention, or 2. you are new to this blog and haven’t yet read many of my previous posts. Either way I am not going to bore you today with a...

    Chorizo Empanadas with Avocado Cream

    So we finally had a beautiful weekend, and just in time. This weekend was the first farm event, of the season, for our new CSA. After not joining a CSA for the last few years we decided to get involved again and chose Good Earth Farm, in Oakfield, WI as our new CSA. The event, this past weekend...

    Crabcake Benedicts with Bacon Hollandaise

    Once again we are just a few weeks from the Holidays, here in the US.  With both Thanksgiving and Christmas just around the corner many of us will be hosting family, sometimes for multiple day stays.  Usually I like to keep breakfast an easy affair when hosting family, whether it is bagels from...

    It’s the beginning of  November and we are just a few weeks away from Thanksgiving, which means the foodie blogosphere is abuzz with all things Thanksgiving related. There are hundreds of recipes for turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, sides, and all manner of desserts, but you don’t see a whole...

    Caramelized Cauliflower

    Tonight we picked up our last box, of the season, from our CSA. Well, technically the last regular season box was delivered a few weeks ago, but we had also opted for the late season storage share. I can’t wait to eat my way through all the killer produce that was delivered. But, before I go on...

    @summer57 I would rehydrate them first and you can definitely use some of that liquid in place of some of the stock, although be aware that it might give your risotto a slightly brown color to it.  Not a big deal but thought that I'd mention it.

    Holiday Entertaining-Cocktails

    The holidays are just around the corner and with the holidays usually comes lots of socializing.  Maybe you are will be heading out to a party or 2 or, just as likely, you will be hosting a party, or get together, or maybe just having some family over, either for an evening of eating and...

    Spinach and Arugula Salad with Grapefruit

    It’s a typical March week here in Wisconsin. One day it’s up to 40°F (short sleeve shirt weather up here) and the next it’s cloudy, gray, foggy and snowy. But what do you expect, it’s Springtime in Wisconsin and that means the weather can change in a heartbeat. I’m just praying for more nice...

    Summer Vegetable Pasta

    Here, in the US, we have a tendency to, usually, serve pastas with heavy tomato sauces or white, creamy cheese sauces, but some of the best pasta dishes are simply pasta tossed with a good amount of olive oil (or butter) and some fresh or sautéed vegetables, especially come summertime when those...

    Apple Cranberry Leather

    I’ve recently be playing around with dehydrating as a form of preserving food, and making tasty treats thanks to my new dehydrator from Chef Talk. You can find the review of that dehydrator here  Nesco Fd 1018 Gardenmaster Food Dehydrator​ In the past, dehydrating hasn’t held a lot of allure for...

    Mushroom Risotto

    This past Saturday my brother and his wife came up to spend the weekend. The plan was for them to arrive in time for dinner on Saturday and then they and I would head out and hit one of the local haunted houses for a good scare. The wife opted to stay home and take care of our daughter. She may...

    German Apple Pancakes

    For years I have wanted to travel the Kettle Moraine Scenic Drive in Autumn. It’s a beautiful drive that takes you through the Kettle Moraine State Park as well as a number of cute, little Wisconsin towns. I was determined that this year we would take the drive. With my work schedule about to...

    Pasta with Caramelized Cabbage

    When it comes to pasta it is easy to get into a rut, making the same sauces over and over.  For most people that means either red, tomato sauce or a white "Alfredo" sauce.  In Autumn I like to serve pasta with caramelized cabbage and bacon.  This is a great late summer, early fall pasta dish...

    Onion Sage Focaccia

    I have to admit, I am not much of a baker. Sure, I took all the required baking classes in culinary school, and as a chef I have done my fair share of baking and pastries, but it is not a skill that I particularly enjoyed and thus didn’t really work on developing. I was always more about the...

    Drinking History-Fruit Shrubs

    A couple of weeks ago I posted about how we went grape picking and the numerous jars of jelly my wife made with them. I also mentioned that we had plenty of leftover grapes for pie making and for me to experiment with. For awhile now, I have had a renewed interest in making shrub, a classic...
