Two Old Roosters

This is the man I have come to call my farmer. Phil Busman of Cherith Farms is my source of eggs, chickens, rabbits, and lots of varieties of vegetables.

Phil emailed this picture and the following note to customers like me on Friday: I would like to introduce you to Foghorn.  Foghorn is a...

Pressure Cooker Chicken, Cauliflower, and Broccoli Soup

Pressure Cooker Chicken, Cauliflower, and Broccoli Soup (Serves 4-5) My new favorite way to consume soup is by the mug. I ladle enough for the first mug from the cooking pot and then save the rest in air-tight glass containers in the refrigerator. Then I ladle my next cups from the container and heat it in the microwave for 2 minutes. A serving of pulled chicken and 2 mugs of soup make a nice meal, but I am finding a mug of soup makes a...

Pressure Cooker Gizzards, Hearts, and Ground Pork with Arugula (Serves 2-4) The bags of chicken gizzards and hearts had been in my freezer for a while, so I decided to cook them.

I cooked the meat with two sliced onions in my pressure cooker and then used the mix to wilt fresh baby arugula. I think almost anyone would...
