I had been shovelling snow and was really tired. I could have picked up a burger, ordered a pizza or opened a can. Instead I made Pork Chops Parmigiana. This recipe is so easy, even I can do it. Continue reading Pork Chop Parmigiana

I love schnitzel. The crispy coating with the tender moist veal underneath is great. Unfortunately there are two problems. Veal is very expensive and She Who Must Be Obeyed has advised me it isn’t ethical to eat veal. I just don’t want to give up on one of my favourite dishes. Continue reading Chicken Schnitzel
We’ve had a record snowfall here at Passing Wind Estates and you would have to be crazy to go outside and smoke. Colour me crazy! I fired up the Louisiana Grills smoker and made General Tso Chicken Wings! I am even crazier because I could have made these in the oven! Continue reading General Tso Chicken Wings
I have made a video on how to make Back (Canandian) Bacon that I have made in previous posts!

What if your smoker won’t heat up to 350 F or you are cooking pulled pork at 250 F and want to do some chicken at the same time? Can you still make chicken with a crispy skin. Yes!
