Happy Holiday Home tour
I didn’t have time today to make another treat, because I did an elf photo shoot. They are absolutely the worst kind of subject. Most of my conversation and instruction went like this: “Hey! Stop that and leave him alone.” “Please look at the camera.” “Just because your head is pointed at the camera does not mean your eyes can look some place else.” “Don’t put your arms around his neck.” “Move your hat out of his face.” “Stop teasing him” “Hey! No fighting.”…
Facebook Ranch Salad Dressing
If you are on Facebook, I’m sure you have noticed the pictures of food that come complete with recipes. They say things like, “2 Ingredient Frosting”, or “My mom could not believe how easy this Cordon Blue Recipe is”, or “Tastes just like the original Taco Bell Refried Beans.” This Ranch Salad Dressing recipe says, “Best ranch you’ll ever taste and its homemade. Recipe lasts for ever too.” and it is provided by Carla Reid Chatterton.
Roast Pork with Gravy, Mashed Potatoes and Roasted Carrots
I felt a little bit guilty yesterday writing about bad fried chicken purchased in a grocery store without writing about some of the Yes!Chef! made food that we have been having here at the Schmautz Haus. Yes!Chef! loves the fall because he loves fall cooking. He likes to make slow-cooked meats, home made gravies, fresh mashed potatoes, slow roasted veggies…I could go on.
Grilled Ribeye and Grilled Peaches with arugula, blue cheese, thyme, pecans and honey balsamic dressing
The headline quote sounds pretty good, doesn’t it? I made that up because I couldn’t find any good peach quotes. And who wouldn’t love someone that brings you 12 perfect peaches? A friend of my youngest son’s showed up the other day to play some video games and he brought us the peaches. I think I will adopt him.
New Yes!Chef! Logo
I was stalking some of the food blog community sites and a discussion came up about watermarking photos. I don’t usually mark mine, but I have found so many photos of mine used without my permission or even attribution, that I decided that I would add a small watermark to them so hopefully somebody viewing them would know where they came from. So, after spending a good deal of time thinking about it and trying out different things, I came up with the above.
