Never use the instant Prairie Squid. Always use fresh squid.

Never, ever, ever, squish a burger or pierce a steak.

Disagree R_I, I think a burger just tastes better when you use charcoal.

Those might be the ingredients for Jesse's Chili P, but Heisenberg wouldn't be caught dead with that amatuer stuff.

thats why it's called a "secret," LJ. Jeeeeez.

Just kidding, I have none, short of trying to use everything I can to make formally unhealthy recipes, "healthy". Usually fails.

My wife can't remember the secret so she has me do all the cooking.

Try to cook without opening packages. Fresh food doesn't come in a box.

I have an awesome recipe for popsicles. They are a cool and fruity treat.

Other than that - Amish steel cut oats. Lots of them. At least 5lbs.

I continue to be amazed how many people my age and (especially) younger who don't have the basic knowledge to prepare a simple meal that doesn't involve Velveeta cheese, BBQ sauce, or a block of frozen pre-packaged crap they throw in the microwave.

BBQ sauce should be banned from the planet.

From scratch, out of the bottle, doesn't matter to me. Glad you like it and happy you enjoy it.

I personally am not a fan.

  1. Bacon is the food that makes other foods worth eating.

  2. Cook slowly. If you rush it, it won't turn out as well.

As I said, if you like it then knock yourself out.

Drink it by the gallon if you want. I think it's disgusting.
