  1. Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    Simple stir fry featuring snap peas and char siu.
  2. Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    No, but I have done it. Since it is being cooked at such a high temp (375F) I really can't tell that it's been smoked, so now I just cook it in the BSOA (and BSO before that). I put it under the broiler (twice) anyway to set the glaze and give it a little char, so if I am going to put in the oven anyway, no point in bothering with the smoker. If I want a smoky flavor I will add some liquid smoke to either the loaf or the glaze, and sometimes I will mix some hickory BBQ sauce in with glaze. I actually added a touch of BBQ sauce to this glaze, but it was so little I didn't event taste it and forgot about it until now! When I have leftovers tonight I will have to see if I can taste it.

    Forgot to take pictures but my wife ordered panko crusted salmon, which I had never made before. It came out good. Served with salad and steamed Brussels sprouts.
  5. Dinner 2018 (Part 1)

    Grilled ham and cheese on homemade (bread machine) rye bread, served with tomato soup and salad. The cheese was mozzarella left over from last week's pizza (and one of the few I can eat) and the soup was made from the leftover tomato sauce from aforementioned pizza. The rye bread receipe was adapted for the bread machine from my regular rye bread recipe.
  6. Pink Himalayan Sea Salt

    Not harmful (in fact, intended to be a health benefit) most table salt has added iodine. When I first took cooking classes many moons ago we did a blind tasting of table salt vs sea salt with the same grind. You could definitely taste the difference. Since then I have used sea salt that I buy in bulk from whole foods or sprouts. Cheaper than kosher salt in the box. Mind you I get it that when it's on the food, you probably can't tell the difference.

    Pizza, Mary's thin crust, tomato sauce, mozzarella, onions, mushrooms, red bell pepper and chicken apple sausage. First pizza in the BSOA and at 450 with convection it was done in 8 minutes and it came out great (but mind you this was a pre-made crust). Did not use a stone, just the included pizza pan.

    No, they were on a foiled and oiled sheet pan. I also oiled the tops lightly with a brush and I didn’t flip them.
