I know we are racing right from Thanksgiving up to Christmas, Hanukkah, and then (eek) the New Year, but I want to take a short pause in the holiday hoopla to bring you pulled pork hoopla.

Sorry that posting here at Idiot’s Kitchen has been a bit light lately. I have a couple of times in the orchestra season where my schedule gets completely crazy. This is one of those times. There’s not a lot of time for anything other than flute playing, driving to and fro, and in the case […]

Crockpot Mexican Chicken might be the only reason we had any food to eat at our house this past week. As a musician, I have times (fall & spring in particular) when I’m ridiculously busy and times (summer!) when I have plenty of time off. One would think that time off would be a good […]

Italian-Style Pot Roast with Porcini Mushrooms. Stracotto if we’re speaking Italian.  Vegetarians, look away. Today is all about a big hunk of beef. Roasts are just the thing when you have to feed a crowd and don’t want to be slaving over the stove while everyone else is having fun. Pot roasts are even better […]
