For a brief time I ran a foodie blog at finediners.ca, but after a brief initial spurt of creativity, it kind of trailed off and I haven’t published there in a long while. I eventually let the domain lapse, and I’ve since felt bad that there were a handful of interesting articles there that were just orphaned and destined to be lost.
I finally decided to do something about that and I’ve migrated all that old content to this blog (wordpress export/import worked great!). I still have to cleanup some of the stubs I had posted to this blog linking to the articles on the now-dead domain, but it’s nice to know that the writing I did there hasn’t been lost. Since all those articles are buried in the archives here now, I thought I’d link to some of my favourites here:
Makin’ Bacon Part 1: DIY Cold Smoker
What do you do with day-after Risotto?
In The Kitchen: Mom’s Easter Bread
In The Kitchen: French Onion Soup
In The Kitchen: Wine Marinated/Braised Beef Short Ribs
Most of these are early experiments in my journey towards learning to cook. Looking back at these, I realize that I’ve gotten a lot better since then and could probably do a much better job on those dishes.
