Bugoni's Serious Steak Seasoning

Bugoin's Steak Seasoning on the Pellet Grill

I recently decided that our selection of BBQ seasoning and rubs needed to be refreshed.  In looking around a bit, I discovered Bugoni’s Spices, and decided to give their Superior Steak Seasoning a try.  Now, I am sure you are perceptive enough to see that the above photo is actually chicken!  When I opened my Bugoni’s Steak Seasoning and gave it a sniff, I decided it smelled like it would also be delicious on chicken…

Kale Chips

Kale Boquet

The kale is flourishing in the garden this year.

 

If you are like some of our kids, then you may not appreciate kale in a cooked vegetable side dish sort of way.  So, we have found the following ways that even they can enjoy kale:

1. A bouquet, as photographed above, accentuated with a flower...one of the kale non-appreciators is a girl.

2. A smoothie. For some reason kale smoothies are trending right now....one of the kale non-appreciators is a teenager.

3. And our recipe for today… Kale chips on the Kuma grill!

Asian Salmon and Asparagus

Asian Salmon

This recipe is one of my oldest recipes and the recipe that hooked me on wood-fired cooking. I remember the first time I had it I had just graduated from college, single, broke and had just gone to work for my cousin at his real estate brokerage. After work one day he invited me over and made this salmon for me (otherwise it was another Top Ramen and Peanut Butter Sandwich for me).
