Cooking With Fire: Himalayan Pink Salt

When trying to come up with a topic this week I began to think back to the staples that everyone should know how to prepare and grill properly. From steak to pork chops to chicken breast... and as I was thinking about these cuts it dawned on me. So much of the flavor we develop in these different meats is in the seasoning we use.

Like many of you, I have been doing my best to stay home and distance myself from the outside world as much as possible these past few weeks.

Cooking With Fire: Grilled Leberkase

This past summer my wife and I decided to take our family on a road trip to Minneapolis. The weather was beautiful, with highs a good 20 degrees lower than back home in Kansas — a perfect spot to vacation to escape the summer heat. But the food we had during the trip is what really stood out. The first few days of our vacation we stayed with our friends Raphael and Teresa. Raphael is originally from Germany and is a wonderful host, so we had quite a few home cooked meals while we were there.

Cooking With Fire: Meal Prepping For A Delicious And Nutritious New Year

January has arrived, and once again Americans are looking to change up what, and how, they eat to get the new year started off right. But this can be incredibly challenging with our busy schedules. Between jobs, kids, and a mass of activities, we just don't seem to have the time to cook those healthy meals we all want.

Cooking With Fire: Ring In The New Year With Bacon-Wrapped Grilled Shrimp Cocktail

A new decade is nearly upon us, and no matter how your 2019 went, rolling over into a new year brings new possibilities and opportunities. But before we slide in 2020 with hope, I challenge you to say goodbye to 2019 in style.

Cooking With Fire: Sage

It's that time of year again. I'm not talking about the temperature suddenly dropping below freezing and the wind blowing us around like leaves. No, it's that time of year when everyone has an opinion on how you should cook your Thanksgiving turkey, and what sides are best for your gathering. But I'd like to, instead, focus on the unsung hero of our holiday dinners, the spices and herbs we rely on to give us those classic flavors — especially sage.

Cooking With Fire: Juicy Lucy

Sometimes the simplest things are the best. Bacon and eggs, the grilled cheese sandwich, grilled lobster cover in butter — few ingredients, easy preparation, big flavor. The cheeseburger falls into the same category: a little beef, a few slices of cheese, buns and whatever toppings you like. But when you want to wow your guests, you need to take things to another level, and that is where the Juicy Lucy comes in.
