A Case for a Rabbit Renaissance at the Dinner Table: Slow Cooked Rabbit and Noodles

A Case for a Rabbit Renaissance at the Dinner Table: Slow Cooked Rabbit and Noodles

First, let me thank you for clicking on a post with the word “rabbit” in the title. Are you curious or nostalgic? Maybe you have eaten rabbit before, or you are interested to know how to cook it should you ever find yourself on Chopped pulling a rabbit out of a box. Rabbits hold several symbolic…

Brightening Up Winter with Dill Radish Relish

Brightening Up Winter with Dill Radish Relish - Solid Gold Eats

As I type this, I hear rain trickling on the roof and windows, snores from dogs sleeping, and Lidia Bastianich of PBS’ Create TV discussing the differences between green, red and black lentils. The local weather channel says we will expect lows of 5 and 10 degrees this week. Glistening blankets of snow are nowhere in sight, making…

Beaten, Seared, and Sauced: On Becoming a Chef at the Culinary Institute of America – A Book Review

Beaten, Seared, and Sauced: On Becoming a Chef at the Culinary Institute of America - A Book Review

We are only 3 days into the new year and I’ve finished my first book! Sounds great, right? Except I started it way back in 2014. I did not read nearly as many books as I should have last year. Between my full time job, this site, freelance writing gigs, recipe development projects, volunteer responsibilities…

Grandma’s Pigs in a Blanket (Polish Golumpki)

Grandma's Pigs in a Blanket (Polish Golumpki) - Solid Gold Eats

A dish with three names may presume you to think of complicated steps or ingredients that cannot be pronounced, but that is not the case here. Instead, this dish with many names comes from my childhood and it is not very complicated at all. Growing up, they were called Pigs in a Blanket. Enjoyed anytime…

Sous Vide Pork Chops Marinated in Garlic and Herbs

Sous Vide Pork Chops Marinated in Garlic and Herbs

It has been so long since John and I enjoyed a home cooked pork chop. Pork chops remind me of chicken breasts, only better. The meat can be tender and juicy but with more flavor than that of chicken, therefore requiring less extra affairs. But chicken, it is so boring and bland, and without being injected or…

Spiced Peach Jam Bourbon Cocktails

Spiced Peach Jam and Bourbon Cocktails - Cinnamon, cloves and allspice mix with sweet peaches to create a warm bourbon drink!

You know that song “Kick out the Jams” by Rage Against the Machine? Countless times I turned that song on in my car with the volume all the way up, windows down, pretending to play drums on the steering wheel (at stoplights, of course). It was the anthem of teenage angst for many in the…

Sous Vide Salmon with Miso Marinade

Sous Vide Salmon with Miso Marinade - Solid Gold Eats

There are so many hidden messages in this post. Eat more salmon, it’s good for you. Vacuum sealing food is cool. You should invest in a sous vide machine, it’s more than just the hip new thing.  John ate this and he is quite the picky salmon eater so that’s a really good sign. Do…

Dry Brining, Bourbon and Leftovers: A Turkey Story

Dry Brining, Bourbon and Leftovers: A Turkey Story - Solid Gold Eats

Walking through the grocery store during the week of Thanksgiving is quite interesting. With paper notes or tablets in hand, people are looking down as they walk in circles trying to find what they want in a store they likely do not visit often. What is it about Thanksgiving that brings people away from the…

Our menu for two went something like this: turkey, gravy, stuffing, macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes, buttered corn, rolls, cranberries, and green beans and ham. For two. Planning for this feast meant a few hours of identifying appropriate ingredients, shopping…

Adventures in Comfort Food Cookbook Giveaway

Adventures in Comfort Food Book Cookbook Giveaway - Solid Gold Eats

When you think of comfort food, what comes to mind first? Images of macaroni and cheese, meatloaf and mashed potatoes appear in my head (though not all on the same plate at the same time). When it comes to regions for comfort food, the midwest and southern parts of the US are the first two…
