We Want Ice Cream

After a brief respite, the summer heat and humidity appears to have returned to normal. How about cooling down with a bit of homemade ice cream? Gather up the ingredients and chill down the ice cream maker because iCook ice cream when it’s hot!

Let's Talk Kitchen Gadgets

Almost every foodie I know has a drawer full of kitchen gadgets or tools they have accumulated over time. I’m no exception but there are a few that I use all the time. If you are looking for a gift for a Father’s Day (assuming your Dad cooks), the newlyweds down the street, or for your foodie friends, here are a few ideas. iCook with gadgets all the time.

Quick and Tasty Pasta

There never seems to be enough time to accomplish everything we need to get done. And with summer upon us, the demand on our time only seem to increase. No time to cook? How about a quick and tasty shrimp and garlic pasta with linguine that can be ready in about 20 minutes? iCook on the weeknights too.

Salmon, It's what's for dinner!

We eat a lot of fish around our house. Salmon is a versatile and tasty fish that isn’t too difficult to find even in a land locked state like Kentucky. This week our resident foodie will put together a couple of Salmon dishes suitable for a quick lunch or a dinner party. iCook fish because it’s tasty and good for you.

The Farmer's Market is Open!

The warm weather can only mean one thing. Summer is quickly approaching and with it the return of our local farmers markets. Now is a great time to head down and shop for some fresh bread and vegetables - and all the other great things that are for sale. iCook but first I have to shop for ingredients!

Happy Mother's Day

Mother’s Day is a time to honor the women in our lives who mean the most to us. It may be your own mother, the mother of your children, or a lady that has filled that honored role. I love to cook and it’s a great way to show my love and appreciation. How about cooking for Mom this year?

South of the Border

Put on your sombrero and get out the tequila, Friday is Cinco de Mayo! Yes, it’s that time of the year, so open your favorite cerveza and let’s whip up some Mexican food. iCook goes south of the border.

Packing Up A Potluck

Spring is here. The dogwoods have bloomed, the pollen level is through the roof, and the Quilters have arrived in Paducah. It’s time to have a traditional gathering of friends and family best known as a potluck. But what do you take? Well iCook is going to offer up a few tasty suggestions.

Is Cooking a Lost Skill?

I have a fear that we aren’t teaching our youth some basic life skills. Do you know how to balance your checkbook, sew on a button or roast a chicken? Cooking is a basic skill that everyone should have and iCook believes it should include roasting a chicken.
