Pissed Off Tuna Salad

Last night I opened some bourbon and got really mad about people not believing in science.

Then I made some angry tuna salad.

Tuna salad’s the best recipe to make when you’re stressed because there is really no wrong way to make it. This is just my latest incarnation. Who knows what the other tuna salad feelings taste like?

Add plenty of chopped vegetables to stretch out the tuna and whatever else you might have.

Ode To Lawry’s Seasoned Salt

If I could only take one seasoning with me into the apocalypse. . . the end of the world. . . a camping trip, or, well, just my kitchen, it would be a shaker of Lawry’s Seasoned Salt.

My version of the Book of Eli would end with Denzel taking a bottle of Lawry’s to Alcatraz and reciting the secret blend of spices.

With our household of two, we’ve never bought bulk of much. We were Costco members for a couple years. The quality of the products are great, but when our membership expired we didn’t rush to renew it. Usually I just buy a new thing when we run out of the old one. Now, I have a back-up for things like dish soap and toothpaste.

Around here, the stores seem to be stocked ok, especially the smaller neighborhood stores. I’m happy to see them limit items like toilet paper and bags of rice. Don’t be the asshole that hoards things when people need them now.

Friendsgiving Recipe: Lemony Goat Cheese & Beet Crostini With Penzeys Greek Seasoning

Post-election, as I move forward this year into 2017, I’m going to more intentionally to support business and community leaders who speak out against the injustices and hate incidences impacting people in their communities.

The other week, I felt compelled to pay Penzeys Spices a little visit. Not only as a small gesture of appreciation to Bill Penzey for speaking out against racism and sexism, but because Penzeys Spices are really, really good. In a December Facebook update, Penzey ends with, “The kindness of cooks makes a great bedtime story.” Sure, some people are mad, but most of the comments share stories about cooking and community.

Little Korean Egg Rolls: Turnip Greens & Beef Mandu

Four years ago, I shared how I made Korean mandu with turnip greens on Simple, Good, And Tasty. I’m bringing it back because it’s too good to get lost in the shuffle.

Kale seems to get all of the glory. But as far as leafy greens go, I much prefer the flavor and texture of collards, beet greens, dandelion greens, and turnip greens. Raw turnip greens can sometimes feel prickly. Once you cook them down they have a silky texture and savory, earthy flavor. They’re perfect added to these fried Korean dumplings.
