I love chicken with sauce, breaded, stewed and grilled. However, sometimes I make up a big batch of chicken with the idea of having it around for cold lunches and snacks. When I do that I like my chicken without any sauce and cooked at high temperature. I find the skin stays bite through while cold and the chicken seams moister. Add to that it isn’t as messy to eat with your fingers, Nekid chicken is my go to. Continue reading Nekid Chicken

I really like Tandoori dishes when I go out for Indian food. The spices are delicious. I would like to get something similar at home. This introduces two problems. Continue reading Tandoori Chicken Wings

So, here is a post with step by step instructions and a video for making bacon. Continue reading Bacon, Step by Step Video and Instructions

Here’s the problem. I love fried chicken. I hate the mess that fat frying makes. She Who Must Be Obeyed doesn’t want me to eat fried food. It seems my choices are limited. Continue reading BBQ “Fried” Chicken
I hate to admit it but I am not a big fan of pork tenderloin. I don’t think it has as much taste as other cuts and can get a kind of mushy texture. It is not terrible, it just isn’t as good as other cuts of pork. However, the supermarket had a killer sale on pork tenderloin and my thrifty nature kicked in.

I love bread. It is likely part of why I am the Old FAT Guy. My favourite is whole wheat bread. I normally make my bread with a mixture of white and whole wheat flours because that makes a nice light loaf but still gives me the nice taste of the whole wheat. Continue reading 100% Whole Wheat Bread
