Pity She Who Must Be Obeyed. One of the side effects of my cooking obsession is the need to try new things. I have a favourite meatloaf recipe that we really like. However, there may just be a better recipe out there and I have to look for it. This time I made Classic Meat Loaf with Pepper Jelly Glaze.

One of the seasonings I got from Louisiana Grills was Mesquite Rub and Grill. I wanted to try this because there is problems with burgers on a smoker or grill.

Also, I think a lot of salt on grilled meat makes it a bit drier. I have no proof of that except my experience. Continue reading Club House La Grille No Salt Added Steak Spice, Makes a Good Burger
My mother would occasionally treat me to a stop at the Woolworth’s lunch counter. I would order Salisbury Steak. In retrospect, it was awful, a bland hunk of formed beef in gravy made
out of powder. However, it is a fond memory. Continue reading Salisbury Steak, A Blast From My Past
