Nominate Your Favorite Recipes for "Best of 2014"

We bought our first Le Cruse Dutch Oven to cook the Osso Buco and it was worth every penny for the pot and the veal shanks!

Best wine bottle opener

I prefer a rabbit. we broke 2 cheap rabbits until we spent the extra money and got a very good one (+$100). Have not had any problems since. I can open a bottle in ~2 seconds.

In-Drawer Knife Racks

Drawer space at our place is at a premium. I have a homemade hardwood butcher block cart that I use for cutting up veggies and place a plastic cutting board down prior to cutting meat. I have a knife block and a magnetic knife holder and like them both. My father was a butcher and train3ed me how to use a wet stone and a steel to keep my knives sharp. There in lies my success with cutting, a sharp knife!

Buttermilk Biscuits

I agree with freezing the butter. Once I grate the butter I cover it with flour and shake off the excess. I throw the grated flour back into the freezer and add it when I need it. I also use the grated flour for my pie crusts. I proportion it into 1 stick and place in air tight containers.
