Quick Tip:

Cast Iron Pans
Cast iron pan owners swear by them for their even dispersal of heat and non stick nature. However, iron is not as happy go lucky as other metals. Initially, the pan must be seasoned with vegetable oil in the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for at least an hour. Each time you heat the pan with oil, it will season till it obtains a beautiful dark color. Don't wash off the black patina thinking it is dirty. In fact, never use soap or scour the pan or you will remove the essence of the pan. Dry your iron pan on the stove with medium heat but watch it so it doesn't burn.

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!
