The Cooking Edge - National Lazy Day

Written by

Not only is Aug. 10 National Lazy Day, but it is also National S'mores Day. Well, Congress didn't pass either of these days but they are recognized throughout. So let's have the easiest, laziest meals I can come up with and add a lazy, easy S'mores recipe to boot. Here is meal with all the trimmings that will take no time at all to whip up.

Asian style slaw
6 c. coleslaw blend
1/2 can (6 oz.) mandarin orange segments, drained
1/4 c. Catalina dressing
3 T. salad dressing or mayonnaise
1 T. soy sauce
1/3 c. honey-roasted peanuts

The Cooking Edge - The first and second Yankee chefs

Written by

I am stopped so many times and asked about my father (the second Yankee Chef, Jack Bailey) and my grandfather (the first Yankee Chef, Samuel Bailey), and folks always ask me, "Are you as good a cook as your Dad? Or grandfather? My answer is, and always will be, emphatically no! Although I have great confidence in my skills, it takes much more to be a great chef. Attitude, decisiveness, compassion, understanding and a graceful disposition are but a few attributes that separates the good and great chefs. I like to think I do possess those qualities, but not nearly to the extent that 50-60 years of sweating in the kitchen brought to my father and grandfather.

The second most often asked question is what were their favorite main courses, not only to eat but to prepare. Dad's favorite was au poivre, especially pork chops au poivre. Grampy's favorite food was golden onion and Fontina stuffed chicken. So I give you both.

The Cooking Edge - The last hurrah

Written by

As sad as I am to see summer leave us (at least psychologically) with the beginning of school, and many of you cooking out for the last time on Labor Day, I look forward to the thought of baking, putting the stew pot back on the stove and the aromas associated with cooking inside again. Now for that last get-together this coming Saturday, I am giving you a couple of recipes that are not only easy but different. I hope you enjoy.

Tuna and artichoke salad

Don't turn your nose up at artichokes. I did for the longest time until I tried this recipe Dad made me many years ago, and now they are one of my favorite vegetables.
