This Week In West Virginia

Product Review Tramontina Cast Iron Enameled Dutch Oven.
Enameled cast iron cookware is not as common in the US. As it is in other parts of the world. Enameling cast iron is a way to protect the cookware from corrosion or chemical processes. Improve the look or decorate the cookware.

Eating Bugs
“According to Grub, online purveyors of freeze-dried insects for culinary purposes, 80% of the world’s nations eat insects as a part of their diet. They can be farmed in a much smaller space than large livestock, and require a substantially lower quantity of water and feed to rear to adult size” Quoted From MSN This is why we should be eating insects

Healthy living: Dealing With Heel Pain

Dealing with Heel Pain. I have heal pain. When it is acting up it keeps me from my walking exercises. It has forced me to leave my 2nd job at Advanced Auto Parts. If you have experienced it you know what I am talking about. When you get up from a resting position it hurts. And getting up during the night or in the morning can be excruciating. This is a condition called “Plantar Fasciitis” In my case once I found a treatment it was easy and immediate relief from the pain.

Gardening Tips: Catching Rain Water

Every year the spring rains come and turn everyone’s yards into muddy messes. Everyone curses the spring rains for the mess they create. I look at them like a shower after a long hard day. Renewed life, the clean smell, the songs of the birds and the twitter of the tree frogs after a spring rain are enough of a comparison to how I feel after a shower to be dismissed. Our grandparents looked at the spring rains as a chance to fill the ponds recharge the wells and top off the cisterns.

The Frugal Secret!

Nanny didn’t waste money but she wasn’t afraid to spend it either. She would spend money on big hams, or that huge turkey. She knew The Frugal Secret!  Nanny was born during the years leading to the great depression. She had seen her fair share of hard times. It showed in how she cooked. She was an old time cook. The classic home maker that can walk into a bare kitchen and perform some kind of grandmother Voodoo that created a dinner from empty refrigerator and bare pantry shelves

SoFrit Chicken Gizzards & Harts in Tomato Pepper sauce

Have I got a treat of a recipe for your crock pot today. Slow cooker Sofrit “Chicken Gizzards & Harts In a Tomato Pepper Sauce”. I went to the Google’s to see what the Italian translation for Chicken Gizzards was and found out that my conglomeration was a recipe. I had never heard of SoFrit. Oh by the way, the Italian translation for chicken gizzards is “Ventriglio Di Pollo”. Olives-N-Okra talk about Sofrit, or chicken gizzards & hearts in hot sauce being and old Italian dish common in Rhode Island. My ingredients are so close that I am calling my dish SoFrit. Instead of Ventriglio Di Pollo or Italian Chicken Gizzards.

Can You Cook over and open fire

I have heard it so many times “Ill Build and fire and cook dinner” Have you ever cooked over and open fire? I would guess that the consistency and simplicity of heat control of your modern Gas or Electric Stove has provide you with a false sense of confidence. I bet that if you asked 100 people on the street have you ever cooked on an open fire.  95 or better would say no. If you asked the Same 100 people do you think you can cook your dinner on an open fire 100 of them would say yes. To be honest I would bet that most of them would be able to eat something. But there is and art to cooking over an open fire. You can’t just turn the heat up and down with the flip of a knob. True campfire cooks know that you have to maintain and tend the fire, bank the coals know when it is cool enough so you can cook. That is right you just can’t build a roaring fire and stick your pan of hamburgers over the flames. You will have burnt outside and raw insides and ruined food and hungry bellies. Continue reading

Crock Pot Ham

With Easter Fast Approaching,  I thought I would share my Crock-Pot Ham Recipe once again. I was sure that I had posted how to make it, but I searched the site and all the posts and it wasn’t to be found. I guess I just thought I covered the Topic of Crock-Pot Ham. Maybe I mentioned it in the Podcast. Fixing your Ham in the Crock-Pot is easy, less messy,  and oh so much more delicious than the traditional way of Baking and Basting. Continue reading
