ThermoWork's Thermopop + Product Review #sponsor #ad

Did you enter the #10DaysofTailgate giveaway and not win ThermoWorks' ThermoPop*? You have another chance because they have offered one of my readers a ThermoPop of their own. Lucky ducks.

*Full Disclosure: I received a ThermoPop by ThermoWorks for participating in #10DaysofTailgate last month. All comments are 100 % accurate and 100% my own.

Here are my thoughts...

Let's be real: ThermoWorks sent me the ThermoPop for participating in this event, but it's not mine. As soon as I opened it, it was out of the box and secured in Jake's grill tools drawer. Really. I had to dig it out, shove it back in the package to take a photo, and then put it back in his drawer.

A few notes: ThermoPop is affordable. And while it's easy to use, it's loaded with features.
  • Rotating display - You can turn the digital readout to make it easy to read. Cool.
  • Lighted display - If you're grilling at, or after, dusk, you can still see the reading. Perfect for autumn evenings.
  • Super Fast - ThermoPop registers temperatures consistently within a few seconds. Okay, maybe five seconds. That's still really fast.
  • Accuracy -  The specifications list a temp range of -58° to 572°F with a +/- 2°F variance up to temps of 248° and a +/- 4°F for temps above 248°F. Not bad.


Thanks, again, ThermoWorks  for sponsoring #10DaysofTailgate.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never tethered...free to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa
