Quick Tip:

Dry vs Wet Measuring
There's a reason why there are measuring devices designed for liquid and dry measurements but most likely not for the reason you think. Wet and dry measuring devices are exactly the same volume, the difference is in the design. Measuring cups and spoons for dry ingredients are engineered to be filled to the brim so the excess can be swept off easily for an exact measurement. Liquid measuring devices have brims so you don't have to worry about spilling. So, if you are in a pinch, you can use either measuring device.

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.

Velvet Merkin

I look forward to this beer release every fall. But you gotta move fast cause they don't stay in stores long. I was able to find three this year without too much effort but I knew the release date. And, don't confuse this beer with it's younger cousin Velvet Merlin which is released later in six packs. Velvet Merlin is a great oatmeal stout but it hasn't been aged to perfection in bourbon barrels. Get ready for notes of chocolate, coffee, vanilla and, of course, bourbon. Make sure you get two bottles. Drink one now and age the other one for a year!
