Slow-Roasted Prime Rib au Jus

I would like to try to do a small 2-3 bone roast in my Breville Smart Oven. I would like some advice, as the oven is fairly new and I'm still learning it...would I do the roast setting with or without the convection setting? How long would I roast a small roast like this, so many minutes per pound? Thank you.

How to Choose a Pepper Mill

I purchased a 9 inch Unicorn Magnum Plus pepper mill after reading the high reviews from Cook's Illustrated. It holds a large amount of peppercorns, the grind size is adjustable, and it dispenses about 1/8 teaspoon in just a few grinds. Not the prettiest mill I've ever seen, but it does the job. It was on the expensive side, but worth it. I threw out my other mills.

Basic Bloody Mary Mix

I like to jazz up Clamato with the BM mix ingredients instead of plain tomato juice.

Cookbooks in the Age of "Mad Men"

I remember my Mama had the "I Hate to Cookbook" Those were the first recipes I ever tried to make as a kid.

Fondue Mac

I've never heard of a 'fondue package'..what's in it, and how would you make your own from scratch?
