Costco Food Finds - 4th Quarter 2014

It is as far as I'm concerned if you go to the Urbani web site you'll see what they sell it for,Urbani is the top of the line,now we all know It is just flavored oil but like someone else said we just like the flavor,I picked up 2 in Kansas,seems It is a seasonal Item.

Slow roasting the turkey: a homily

Hope you all can help me??While no one in my family likes the breast our guests do so I halfed the breast dry seasoned all the individual Turkey parts [legs and thighs] and am getting ready to slow roast as you all recommend my question to you is this do I add the breast at the beginning of the process???or do I wait??and for how long,the breast halfs only way a couple of pounds each.I thank you all ahead of time.Happy Thanksgiving to you all.

Question about freezing fresh corn to cook later

I bake my corn, husks and all before baking them I do wet the corn before placing on a cookie sheet at 375 or so,then freeze of course you wait till they cool down.

I also highly recommend Tortilleria everything is homemade,plus I also recommend Lamberts Cafe in Ozark,Mo and while your in Rogers,Ar you should definetly go to Bonefish Grill for the BAng Bang Shrimp.

Salt Pork in Florida?

go to www.alexanderham.com they have the salted bacon and have numerous other pork products,from what I can remember they don't charge too much for shipping, It's also been a while since I went on there site becauce my family ships it to me they get the chunks and I slice them myself and It's the chunks that I've never seen on line but you can ask them for that they may even advertise it now and by the way the way there bacon lasts forever I have a big piece left from last year.Good luck.

Your best items at Sam's Club

I just have to add my 2 cent's,first of all I belong to Sam's club but only because I have to.Sam's club is 70 miles away from me and the closet Costco is for me 200 miles away but I still make the trip 2 to 3 times a year and load up on all my meats and other needs, Costco gives us the best of products, Sam's could give a shit less. You started this blog Jan 12-2012 and here it is July 16-14 with only 40 some hit's does that not tell you anything??Not to mention they carry no special's during the Holiday's like Costco doe's.

Is the traditional German bakery finished?

ChefJune.
I grew up with Lutz's pastries so sad to hear they've closed but not surprised the last time I was home to Chicago was 6 years ago at that time the family had already sold it,and I could tell the difference in the cakes.
Haven't had any cakes like their's since.

What's best these days in Kansas City BBQ?

A big huge yay for McGonigle's, as for OK Joe's I loved the ribs but cant say much for the brisket did not get a smoke taste out of it nor did I see a smoke ring that also goes for the chicken, plus the brisket on the combo plate was sliced super thin.Dont think I'll be back to OK joe's.But McGonigle's will always be on our list It's that good.

The Great American Sunday Dinner

Even though my Mutti worked she cooked every day of her life,my dad had his saying he would rather put the money on the table than give towards hospital and doctor bills.Which has served me also.
But Sunday's always were special,she'd fix things like German roladen, potatoe dumplings and red cabbage or stuffed cabbage[ the Serbian kind] the list goes on and on,even though I also make these foods now they still aren't as good as my Mom's

Do you love your kitchen faucet?

I also bought the Hansgrue,and am totally happy with it,I will not buy anything from China so I really checked this company out all parts are made in Germany and assempled in Georgia,at least our workers here are getting some of the benifits,plus I got mine on line at Costco,most all the other one's mentioned are made in China a no no for me.
Look for the sale at Costco,I got mine for $149.00 was selling last for $199.00, so you dont need to get the most costly one. Good Luck.

McGonigle's Market for brisket BBQ sanwich,yay or nay??? [KC]

Turns out we went to McGonigles after all,so glad we did turns out it was one off the best brisket sandwiches we ever had.Wish we could have gone back today and bought some to take home but we had to leave early due to the bad storm we are getting here in Arkansas, next time.Thank you for the feedback.

Serbian Food Festival 11/23-Lenexa

McGonigle's Market for brisket BBQ sanwich,yay or nay??? [KC]

Thank you for the comeback, guess we'll have to try Mcgonigle's in the summer time when we come the next time,you see we will be coming in to Kansas after a 5 hour drive and really would like to relax a bit so we need aplace that we can sit down at.After we leave Trader Joe's we are going straight to overland Park where Costco is.Now I know there are a lot of chains in that area but would like one that does a really good burger [charbroiled preferable]
The next day on our way home we will once again go to the Costco on Linwood blvd to get our perishables.Will we be anywhere in the area where Woody's bbq is?????
P.S dont like Culvers.

McGonigle's Market for brisket BBQ sanwich,yay or nay??? [KC]

We will be coming for our Christmas shopping Wednesday and since our first stop will be at Trader Joe's we thought we would stop for lunch at Mcgonigles for a quick sandwich , we are really pressed for time since we have to drive home the next day, ,we will be going to Bonefish grill for supper later in the day,If it's a nay please recommend something close by,we will be staying in overland,ks very close to Costco.

White Lily Flour in a Roux

I use white lily flour for a lot of things but not for gravy it has a tendency to dissipate save yourself the trouble and buy some regular flour.

How's T-day coming? What have you prepped?

my friends always partially defrost then bake or reheat both ,in my case This time I'm going to totally defrost as I've decided I want to add oysters,just remember everything in your dressing is already cooked.

If it's the white truffle oil from the Urbani company it's fantastic, Urbani is the top of the line,not all truffle oil's are good,as a user of the oil for manny many years it's the only one to get,plus the price from them is also the tops.When I first started using there oil it cost me almost $45.00 so I consider this a gift.
