Cut & Measure Unless I'm really familiar with a recipe, I usually prepare as much as I can ahead of time like measuring and chopping, so I can remain calm during the cooking process. Store your ingredients in ramekins and small bowls according to the order in which they are added to the recipe.
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.
Third in the Hop Freshner series, this Lemon & Grassy IPA is pretty good. I like the idea behind the Port Brewing and Lost Abbey collaboration and I hope they continue the venture as I enjoy experimental flavor and hop combinations. I've purchased four 22 ounce Lemon & Grassy bottles so I clearly enjoyed it but still, it doesn't come close in my eyes to the first in the series, Dank & Sticky. You can definitely taste the hops and the lemon. Not so sure about the grass but I don't regularly eat grass so I'm not a good judge. Might have tasted grass a few times playing football but that was a while ago.
