Grim's Grub: It's time to fire up the grill
It's spring, so naturally the grills are coming out of sheds and a little bit of smoke will start rising over the horizon. I don't know about...

Chef's Hat: Are your meals boring? Try muffin tins

Grim's Grub: It's time to tap the sweetest trees
So, it is that time of year again, possibly even the tail end, weather pending (I'm new at this so I dunno). It's time to tap maples. This is...

Chef's Hat: Pancakes - they aren't just for breakfast
In my many years (decades) of cooking, I've run into people who didn't like a variety of foods, including potato salad, baked beans and, believe...

Chef's Hat: Not your usual chicken salad sandwich
Simple and perhaps a bit old-fashioned, the chicken salad sandwich is a great way to use up leftover chicken. For many people, chicken salad is simply diced chicken and a bit of mayo on toasted bread. Grapes are one of the traditional ingredients added to chicken salad. But there...

Grim's Grub: In cold weather, warm up with hot pot(luck)
There likely are few readers out there who know what I mean by "hot pot," but everyone should try it at least once. Think of it as the Asian equivalent of fondue, but instead of dipping in cheese, chocolate or hot oil, you dip in boiling soup broth. During my nine months in China,...

Chef's Hat: Sheet pan dinners are almost as easy as crockpot meals
When it comes to cooking, dishes that are appetizing, easy to make and have minimal cleanup time are what hold a lot of attraction for me - and for most people I know who have busy lives. For years crockpots have provided the answer to easy preparation; although crockpot meals are...

Add pizzazz to snazz up appetizers
Not too long ago I went to a holiday gathering where the food was the typical appetizers - cold shrimp ring from a store, little hot dogs in barbecue sauce and a store-bought spinach dip. The gathering was with friends I had not seen for awhile so it was great catching up. But I do...
