| Food and Drink Board|| Italian Style Cheesecake - with Ricotta Cheese (Photos) - MeridianDog on 8/17/14 at 4:58 pm|
The wife (MHNBPF) makes two different cheesecake recipes - New York style and Italian style. She is the authority on this stuff and I know the the recipes are very much different, but my opinion is that the main difference is the type of cheese used. New York style uses Cream Cheese and Italian uses...
| Food and Drink Board|| Beef and Spinach Cannelloni for Dinner (photos) - MeridianDog on 8/16/14 at 11:00 pm|
This will be the longest post I have ever made. On a scale of 1-10 of complexity, I would rate this dish a 7 or 8.
We do Cannelloni entirely from scratch. A lot of work, but it is worth it.
2 cups Semolina flour (you can use AP if you like)
2 (large) eggs

These places were once fairly common, but are sadly disappearing. I have not been to Peggy's in a couple of years but they continue trudging on, doing what they do very well.

Like 58,943,237 other folks, we cooked ribs yesterday. I stick pretty close to the 3-2-1 method.
I am probably the only guy on TD who does not use a BGE. I'll probably get one when my 38 year old Brinkman pit wears out in another 30 years.
Started with a fire in the far end of the pit. Charco...

| Food and Drink Board|| Hamburger Steak (photos) - MeridianDog on 5/18/14 at 6:22 pm|
We went to Piggly Wiggly Friday night for ground meat to make burgers and what looked best in their meat counter was ground round. It was far and above better than second choice and was what I left with. The burgers were good and we formed the leftover meat into patties and froze it for future use.
