I recently had the pleasure of taking a very long drive down to Corvallis to meet some of the lineup at 2 Towns Cider. If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you may already know it is pretty much my favorite cidery around. I genuinely enjoy their product, and the love grew even more when I… Read More 2Towns Cider: Ginja’d Onion Jam
Dal. Daal? Dahl? However you spell it, the stuff is awesome. My first attempt was stove top with yellow split peas, and while it too was delicious, I’ve moved to a way easier and less-involved process: this time, I’m whipping out the crock pot!

I am on my third bottle of this pre-mixed stuff and I use it on practically everything… or at least I did. For whatever reason, checking out the label never crossed my mind before today… Read More Cocky Cajun Seasoning

Ingredients: 1 medium-sized whole chicken (I recommend spending the extra $$ for a Kosher chicken for this) 1 large onion, cut in half 2 celery… Read More Decontamination: Chicken Ginger Soup
