So... today I discovered Griffin's Grub & Necessary Indulgences. All I can say is... WOW! These folks rock...

http://griffinsgrub.wordpress.com/

Tonight for dinner I used @Griffin 's recipe for a chicken pot pie. I didn't cook it in the egg, but it was fantastic none the less. I even scored some wow points of my own with SWMBO due the tip he gave about cutting out shapes with the extra pie crust.

Tomorrow night is @NecessaryIndulg 's Roasted Cauliflower with Gruyère Sauce. It will accompany a rack of spare ribs, or maybe a whole turkey breast. I haven't decided yet. But either way, I can't wait to try it as well!

Thanks guys!!! People like you are part of the reason this forum is so great!

    Thanks @Cookinbob! That was a great tasting pie as well... SWMBO declared it would be a Winter-time staple at our house moving forward.

    I learned everything @henapple could teach me (except for his appreciation for PBR). Then I went out and really learned some stuff. :P

    Glad you and SWMBO'ed liked the pie. Mrs. G made a different one on Sunday. Was not nearly as good as that one. :(

    I can't wait to hear what you think of the Cauliflower & Gruyère... it goes very well with a bottle of red. ;)

    Aw come on @henapple , you know I'm kidding. Hopefully we can sit down at Salado this year and trade off some Lone Stars and some PBRs and get a deeper appreciation and understanding of each other and beers. :D

    They still sell PBR?  I thought the EPA shutdown the Pabst brewery for the toxic waste that's produced by the brewery…and then shipped across the country in cans and bottles. :D

    The Roasted Cauliflower with Gruyère Sauce was great! Unfortunately, I can't say the same about the rest of the meal.

    I tried to roll a rack of spare ribs like Dyal did earlier this week on his Mini... Except, I did mine on the Small. Cooked with the 3-2-1 method like I always do... But for whatever reason, they were way overcooked. Oh well, lesson learned. I cook my ribs flat from now on.

    In short, Thanks Kristi for the highlight of our dinner!

    @jtippers - they were likely overcooked because of the time spent in foil (they get braised). Less time in foil might help.

    Yes, definitely check out Chris's site NibbleMeThis. He posts here from time to time and is a stand up guy. He's helped me out a bunch, given me tips and even did a guest post for me a few years back when I was in Germany.

    There are a ton of other great, even better, cooks here. Most people just don't run a blog to keep track of it. VI, Travis, Cen-Tex, Mickey, some short guy from Canada and too many more to name. I'm in awe of a bunch of people here.

  • Thanks @Griffin... I've always enjoyed cooking and sharing it with others. BTW, I'm just short of 6'3" so please don't refer to me as the "short guy"

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.
