Front Burner: Sour grapes' place is Cornmeal Cake

posted: 08/24/2016 1:59 a.m. Discuss

The Colori Titanium paring knife from Kuhn Rikon has been my go-to paring knife since it arrived a few weeks ago. The knife has a 4-inch ice-hardened Japanese carbon steel blade and gets its unique color from its titanium coating. The titanium is combined with carbon, nitrogen or oxygen to create the colors. No pigments are used. The knife is pretty to look at, but it's how it feels in my hand that makes me keep going back to it. The handle is comfortable to grip and the knife, though lightweight, is well-balanced and still has a bit of heft.

posted: 08/06/2016 5:45 a.m. Discuss

Where I live: with my favorite person in the world, my daughter, Lillian. We live right on the line that separates Lakewood and Park Hill in North Little Rock. Technically, we reside in Park Hill, overlooking Lake No. 1, commonly called the Skiing Lake.

Pepper preparation: The do’s and don’ts of handling these hot little numbers

What does one do with a peck of peppers? (A peck, by the way, is a quarter of a bushel or 2 gallons).
