New Orleans

Nice meal at Restaurant R'evolution in the French Quarter. Perfectly grilled stripe bass and a tasty plate of lobster gnocchi.

I Did Eat In 2012

In reviewing Cooking Carbone I come to realize that posts in 2012 were slim. Hmmm, same year I opened a Facebook page. Other excuses are, we were busy tending my garlic crop and a successful garden here at the ranch. I was also getting used to my first full year of "some what" retirement from the world of ice cream. I'll take a stroll down memory lane 2012 to see what I can come up with in terms of dining and cooking experiences. In the meantime here's one of our prized Italian eggplants we grew at the farm in Washoe Valley.

Cowboy Breakfast

I know, this week eggs are bad for you, sausage is even worse, and oh my God is that a wheat-full Thomas English muffin? Sometimes you have to just go with what tastes good. Local eggs cooked in chorizo  drippings, El Salvadoran chorizo from the local Carson City, NV latino supermarket, and a nice toasty english muffin smothered in butter. A good cup of coffee doesn't hurt either. Lately I've been drinking Starbucks, 2 parts Pike Place and 1 part Italian Roast ground fresh at home. With a touch of cream it's a nice blend.

Hanger Steak Nevada Style

Here's a nice way to grill hanger steaks. Twenty minutes from prep to plate.
Anybody interested in the recipe?

Washoe Valley Cherries ???

Keeping our fingers crossed this spring for no more hard frosts. We had apple, pear, nectarine, and cherry blossoms this year and loads of mason bees buzzing around the orchard.

Photo is of cherry blossoms from our sweet cherry tree. With any luck Mama Rusty will have enough to make a pie this year.
