Lemons Lemons are one of my favorite flavor enhancers but you need to be careful of the white pith. If you cook the pith, it turns very bitter. Cooking the rind or pulp is fine but never use the pith or seeds. I remember discovering this disturbing fact cooking chicken piccata for the first time. I thought I could enhance the flavor by cooking lemon slices in the sauce but instead I got a bitter taste I couldn't correct with sugar.
My Favorite Pan My favorite pan is a twenty dollar cast iron pan. I remember vividly how my step-father coveted his iron pan and warned us about not using soap to clean it. Seasoned and maintained properly, an iron pan can last forever. It is better than any non stick pan and far more durable. It's thick base holds heat better than any pan in my arsenal and prevents food from burning by dispersing the heat.
This triple IPA from Stone Brewing is one of my favorites. Stone makes some of the most tantalizing IPAs on the market, you could almost say they invented the market. Their layering of hops is genius, making beer that is uniquely Stone. This beer is no exception. Heavy with citrus tones without actually adding any citrus is what makes this beer sing. Very aggressive and smooth all at the same time. Try this beer but make sure you don't have anywhere to go cause it's 10.8% alcohol.
