    Recipe Day: Leftover Chowder    Based on the classic " chips n' cheese " cycle, this recipe combines the leftovers which perpetually exist in uneven quantities in our fridge into something delicious.    Ingredients      1 Packet (1 oz) Onion Soup Mix, from the time you made Sour Cream and Onion dip in 2017 and the box contained 2 packets.   1 Box (about 20 oz) leftover Chicken Broth because slow cooker recipes never take exactly 1 box.   1 leftover Vegetable Bouillon cube, from the time in 2018 you were cooking meals for your vegetarian house guest.   2 teaspoons Garlic Powder     1 Packet (4 oz) Instant Mashed Potatoes   7 Stalks Celery (ch...

    Recipe Day: Seasoned Steaks  I normally prefer steaks with as little interference as possible -- a simple rare cut with a bit of salt, pepper, and if I'm feeling particularly extravagant, brown sugar. However, this more complex rub went over well at the most recent barbeque.      Statistics      Serves 3 - 4 people   Prep Time: 15 minutes   Cook Time: up to 16 minutes      Ingredients      1 tablespoon sea salt   1 tablespoon paprika   2 teaspoons onion powder   2 teaspoons garlic powder   2 teaspoons oregano   2 teaspoons black pepper   2 teaspoons brown sugar   1 teaspo...

    Recipe Day: Slow-Cooker Bean Chili    This bean chili is a hit in the demographic of "people married to me". It's very simple to make and hard to screw up.    Statistics      Serves 8 - 10 normal people or 1 giant   Prep Time: 10 minutes   Cook Time: 8 - 9 hours      Ingredients      1/2 chicken boullion cube   1 envelope chili seasoning mix   5 cups water   1 can each: black beans, garbanzo beans, kidney beans, sweet kernel corn, tomato sauce, and "diced tomatoes and mild green chiles"   8 oz dried lentils   sliced or shredded Smoked Gouda cheese (Provolone is also a good pick)    &nbs...

    Recipe Day: Bagel Toast   This is a "recipe" the way that Nickelback is a "band" -- it's more of a Hint from Heloise on what to do when your bagels go stale faster than you can eat them.   Simply cut your bagel into thirds rather than halves, starting with the bottom slice and then splitting the top two thirds with a bread knife. If the bagel is uneven, rotate so that the thinnest side is up, to prevent wedge-shaped pieces.   Toast the thirds in a toaster oven for the same amount of time you would toast halves and then spread liberally with cream cheese. There are multiple benefits to this approach:     Most of the tiresome, chewy parts are now close enough to a surface to come out crispy.   There's...

    Recipe Day: Meatless Grilling   With an overabundance of foods from our garden and the local Farmer's Market about to spoil, we had our first ever grilled dinner with zero meats. Here is an incredibly easy set of recipes you can use to grill pretty much anything you have laying around the kitchen (that was already edible to begin with).    Grilled Tomatoes : Cut tomatoes in half horizontally and jam your pinky into all of the water-filled cavities ilke you're going for that deep, deep nose booger. Tap tomato halves against the cutting board to shake remaining juices out, then season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Grill over medium-high heat for about 5 minutes per side, starting with flat side down. Add shredded cheese in the...

    Recipe Day: Glazed Grilled Salmon  My general MO for recipes is to start from a legitimate recipe out of a dead-tree book or the Internet (usually with 10 or fewer ingredients) and then cut as many corners as possible to speed up the process without arriving at taste ruination. This grilled fish recipe ended up being a home run with very little effort. The glaze is a sweet-plus-salty caramelization with no crazy ingredients.     salmon fillets of even thickness, 3/4" - 1"   1/4 cup soy sauce   1/4 cup brown sugar   1/4 cup olive oil   1/4 cup water   rice      Directions      Remove lingering bones from the fish. If any portion is much thinner than th...

    Recipe Day: Improved Egg Drop Soup  I originally posted  this recipe for Egg Drop Soup  back in 2006. Because recipe improvement is easier than self-improvement, here is an updated version that gets closer to my goal of delivery-restaurant-quality soup.     4 cups chicken broth, made from Bouillon cubes   1/8 teaspoon ground ginger   2 tablespoons chopped chives   dash of white pepper   1/4 teaspoon salt   1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch   2 whole eggs and 1 egg yolk      Directions      Make chicken broth in a pot, then cool 1 cup of the broth in the fridge until it is no longer warm. Stir in cornstarch (into the cool broth) until it...

    Recipe Day: Pub Burgers    Ingredients      1 tablespoon oil   2 pounds ground beef   1/2 cup ketchup   1/4 cup yellow mustard   1/4 cup brown sugar   Kaiser buns   Swiss Cheese      Instructions      Heat oil over medium-low heat, and brown the ground beef. Drain excess fat.   Thoroughly mix ground beef, ketchup, mustard, and brown sugar in a slow cooker. Cook on low for 4.5 - 5 hours.   Place cheese on buns and toast.   Scoop beef into buns. The consistency will be like a tidy Sloppy Joe. Garnish with extras like onions, if desired.   Serve with Guinness and some suita...

    Recipe Day: BU's Fake Cheesesteak   This is a recipe I invented on Sunday evening with "things from around the kitchen", when I had a manly hunger for meat but no steaks in the freezer and no desire to go shopping. There are probably all sorts of substitutions you could try, but the end result will turn out to be a pretty good approximation of a cheesesteak sub.    Ingredients (for 1 serving)      1 sesame seed bagel, sliced   1/4 pound ground beef   1/4 onion, cut into half rings   1/4 cup Yellowtail Shiraz   1 slice pepper jack cheese   sugar   thyme   minced garlic   butter   shredded parmesan cheese   olive oil   ma...

    Answers Day   "What is Pei Wei? Also how do you say that?"  - Anna   Pei Wei is an Asian fusion (fasion) restaurant that serves noodley types of Chinese, Korean, Japanese, Thai, and Vietnamese food. It's mostly lame, because they put metal tip trees on each table with a hanging sample dollar in case you don't get the idea. There's nothing wrong with tipping in general, but you order the food cafeteria-style in this place -- the server brings your food out, walking maybe 10 feet, and then you never see them again. There are plenty of people I would like to tip if I never had to see them again, but none of them work at Pay Way.    "And while you're answering questions, what is bacon beer?"  - Mom  &nbs...

Mix it with the other spices in a wide bowl to make the rub.    Lightly coat the pork chops with olive oil and rub the rub on the grub.    Heat a grill up to medium heat and rub down the rack with olive oil.    Grill the p...

    Recipe Day   Chicken BUdle Soup     On the spur of the moment last Sunday, I decided to whip up some homemade chicken noodle soup for my tired wife. I didn't start from any known recipe and used only what I had around the house, but just continuously threw things into a pot until I deemed it complete. It was surprisingly delicious, which is why I've tried to recreate the directions here. Enjoy!    Ingredients:      1 pot of water   a dash of olive oil   3 chicken bouillon cubes   1 full sprig of fresh rosemary, diced small enough to not get stuck in your teeth   thyme   savory   garlic powder   onion salt   ...

    Recipe Day  As a public service today, I would like to present to you my Perfect Egg Drop Soup? recipe which results in a soup that's just as good as what you can get from Chinese take-out, without that foul corn taste that so many restaurants often add in that tends to give me horrible flashbacks to the time my dad bought corn on sale in bulk but it turned out to be creamed corn. I am giving you this secret recipe out of the goodness of my heart, and not because the judge agreed to drop the "obscene dancing in the Chinese restaurant" charges in exchange for community service.    3 cups low sodium chicken broth  1/8 teaspoon ground ginger  1 tablespoon chopped chives  1/4 teaspoon salt  ...
