I had tried one of Rufus Teague’s barbecue sauces before and quite liked it. I was inviting some guests over and some of them are heat adverse. So I decided to try some Rufus Teague Honey Sweet Sauce. Continue reading Rufus Teague Sweet Honey BBQ Chicken Breasts
I made another of my series of videos giving detailed instructions on how to make bacon. It is of one of my favourite bacons, Pepper Canadian Bacon. You should know us Canadians call it back bacon but I have given up on that for the purpose of my blog and will call it Canadian bacon. Chalk one up to my American friends!

The snow is finally gone and we have some warm weather. It has given me the chance to plant my peas, onions, lettuce and spinach. I also put out some tomato plants but I have to protect them with Cozy Coats so the remaining frosty days don’t get to them.
Also, the garlic I planted last fall had come up before the snow was gone! Now they are a few inches high.
I do love growing my own food! Oh, yeah. She Who Must Be Obeyed planted some flowers. OK. I guess.

Sounds like very little change, right? Actually, the touch of sweet and sour from the pickled onions gives a mild but significant change to the cocktail. I actually prefer the onions.

When you first start cooking you just want good food and you follow recipes that have been tested. However, as you become more proficient, you want to make recipes that suit your tastes. These cookies are an example of that. I like molasses, raisins, nuts and oatmeal in my cookies. I like them chewy and moist. Welcome to Old Fat Guy Cookies. Continue reading Old Fat Guy Cookies
I have posted a recipe for English Muffins before. Those muffins were a little more bread like. Many English Muffins are more spongy. I prefer these softer muffins for eggs Benedict but they are awesome with butter and jam too. The spongy texture means butter soaks right through them! These muffins are meant to be toasted to get crusty on the outside. Continue reading English Muffins
