Head, Shoulders, Knees & Shanks!

A shank is the part of the leg between the knee and ankle. In my efforts to cook more "nose to tail”, I took on the lamb shank for this week’s recipe. iCook for sustainability as well as taste.

If a Cake is your wish!

It’s a tradition at iList to celebrate birthdays with a special treat prepared. We had a birthday just last week and they requested a “Chocolate and Peanut butter cake”. Now I am a huge fan of this combination, so I took it as a personal challenge to find the right recipe. iCook says to let them eat Cake!

What is "Sous Vide" cooking?

Sous vide, (pronounced sue-veed), refers to the process of vacuum-sealing food in a bag, then cooking it to a very precise temperature in a water bath. This technique produces results that are not possible through any other cooking method. My wife recently gave me a sous vide machine so I had to give it whirl. This week, iCook is exploring the world of sous vide cooking.

Bacon, Eggs, and Pasta?

You haven’t been to the store in days, your refrigerator is practically empty and your families whining that they are hungry! You need a quick and delicious dinner. Breakfast for dinner is an option but here’s another fun idea…why not use those same ingredients to make Pasta carbonara? iCook pasta for a quick and hearty meal.

Where's the Meat?

The New Year is a little over two weeks old. Are you sticking to your resolutions? Like many people I want to lose weight and exercise more. I always plan to reduce the amount of meat I eat. Eating less meat doesn’t mean that you have to live on stir-fried vegetables. iCook hot, hearty meals without meat.

A Roast for the Holidays

I love the holidays except for one thing, you tend to eat the same foods over, and over, and over. This year some friends and I decided to have an Italian dinner for Christmas Eve. It was really fun to gather round the table and celebrate without seeing one piece of Turkey or spoonful of yams. iCooked something different for our holiday feast.

This week I’m preparing something from my wife’s childhood that’s all about nose to tail. iCook with sustainability in mind.
