What I've been Cooking (Sous Vide)

Today I sent my SousVide Supreme demo unit back. I had it for almost two weeks. While this gave me a chance to get a feel for the machine, it didn't really give me enough time to really see all of what sous vide - as a technique - has to offer. Here's what I cooked:

A Kitchen Tool I Am Thankful For...

I don't think that I've extolled the virtues of my vegetable peeler to you all. I should. It is awesome. I know a lot of people swear by those Y-shaped peelers. I admit, those are better than those all-metal swivel peelers. My peeler, though? I bought it because I hated my old potato peeler. I saw this one. It is a Kitchenaid Euro Peeler. It isn't the fancy one, either. It is the cheap, $6 or so version.

Memorial Day Grilling: Vegetable-style

I love grilling. There's something magical about the communal nature of cooking outside along with friends and family. Of course, grilling usually involves large slabs of meat, and those you'd want to spend time with can include people who don't eat meat. While it is easy enough to throw in some cold vegetarian side dishes for them, that doesn't really allow them to share in the communal experience.

The solution? Grill up some vegetables.
