Finally Bought a Decent Slicer

I usually cook at my day job, I’m technically the IT Manager/Web Developer. Some how, usually during the interview process, they find out that I previously was  a chef for 20 years. So I become the resident chef where ever I am working. My current boss has taken to purchasing whole New York Strips and […]

I Really Can’t Believe Someone Would Eat This

Hi, it’s been awhile. I’ve been taking some time from Chef Benwa for the summer, but I just couldn’t help but post this disgusting image. I really wish they would have shown more of the kids face. I’m sure the look is priceless. Just in case you find this appetizing in any way here is […]

Chili Verde Con Carne Lasagna

Well it’s really only lasagna in the sense that it is layered like the lasagna.  I made a version of this method for a pot-luck at my day job. The girls liked it so much they wanted the recipe. It is not really a recipe as such but more of a method. Today I am […]

Here are a couple of my mom’s recipe cards. I’m doing this one first because it has no title. I think it might be some sort of dip or appetizer. If any body has any idea what this is let me know. According to Nancy this is a Reuben Dip Recipe. Sounds about right to […]

I Have a Brand New Soy Sauce

Kikkoman Soy Sauce used to be my one and only soy sauce. But now I have found a new brand to love and cherish. It is Tabasco Soy Sauce. Here it is with some mini egg rolls. It has just a hint of Tabasco in the sauce. Just enough to give it a little zip. […]

Gas vs. Charcoal Grilling

I have finally found a solution for the age-old debate, Propane Gas vs. Charcoal Grilling. It is a debate that everyone has tussled over, especially when you are getting ready to lay out some hard earned money. It was time to retire our old propane grill. It had seen better days, the burners were shooting […]
