  • Duck Confit…
    on Sep 1, 2015 in my grindz
    When it comes to no-frills simplicity with maximum flavor and comfort, duck confit always hits the spot for me. Whether I’m at a casual brasserie or a fancy fusion restaurant, it’s the be-all-end-all when I look at the menu and it pulls m...
  • Roasted Tomato Basil Soup
    on Jul 31, 2015 in my grindz
    Summertime brings certain joys that can only be had during this time. One of them is tomatoes. Gardeners slave over growing tomatoes annually and some years do better than others, for no apparent reason. Seattle’s had a crazy hot and dry summer...
  • Scallops with Roasted Garlic Cream Sauce
    on Dec 24, 2014 in my grindz
    Recently it was the wife’s birthday. She loves scallops, and although I worked until 7 as it was during the week, I knew I had to make some of these tasty morsels for her. I paired it with a creamy roasted garlic sauce, which is so good on it&#...
  • Razor Clam Chowder
    on Nov 28, 2014 in my grindz
    Razor clamming is a Northwest tradition. And while I’m not a native of the PNW, I do love clamming. There’s something rewarding about going out to the beach when it’s cold, windy, and possibly rainy then digging in the sand to unear...
  • Winter Squash Soup

    Recently I purchased a sweet meat squash at the produce stand I frequent. Never had this type of squash before. The woman there told me it’s like a cross between a golden delicious and a delicata, both of which I haven’t had either. Basic...

    It has been a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG time since my last post. I had started work last year and the daily grind 8-10 hour days got the best of me. I’m going to resurrect the blog from the dead and start posting again. Stay tuned!

  • Blackberry Jam…
    on Aug 25, 2013 in my grindz
    Blackberries are tasty.  However, they’re even better when they’re free. One of the great things about being in the Northwest is having free blackberries almost anywhere (at least in western Washington). I spotted a good spot on the way...

    on Jul 29, 2013 in my grindz
    Holy smokes it’s been a while since my last post. I’ve been hounded by people to hurry and get something on here. I’ve been busy with graduating, studying for a professional board exam, vacationing, and just being lazy.  Laziness n...

  • Tiramisu…
    on Feb 27, 2013 in my grindz
    Tiramisu is a great dessert, a classic. It’s my girlfriend’s favorite so it was only fitting to make it for Valentine’s Day. And sure I can go to the store and buy Italian ladyfingers for $2.50 a package, but I’d much rather m...

  • Miso Glazed Salmon with Yuzu Butter SauceSalmon is a unique fish.  It’s not meaty like tuna and not bland like cod, but it has it’s own thing going on.  It’s hearty enough to be an entree, yet mild enough to take on different flavors. And living here in Seattle allows fo...

  • Won Tons…
    on Feb 5, 2013 in my grindz
    I’ve been sick for the past week and a half.  Whenever we get sick, we crave childhood feel-good dishes like chicken noodle soup, mom’s beef stew, basically a lovely soup. I crave won ton soup.  It was a tradition when I was younger to...

    Did that get your attention? Salted caramels have been the dessert craze for the last few years.  Bacon has also been going through a semi-obsessive movement.  Why not bring them together for gastronomical fantasy? You could start with 23 lbs of ba...
