Tonight as I was preparing Gordon Ramsay’s Beef Stew which was featured on the F Word a few weeks ago and I had an unfortunate mishap. Running late, and in a rush, while using a new knife lead to my incident. I’m accustomed to my Calphalon Katana Series Chef’s Knife which has quite a long […]
An essential part of cooking on the fly, or being able to throw a meal together, is a well stocked pantry. Having essential ingredients on hand can make the difference between preparing a fresh, tasty, homemade meal, or ordering a pizza. If you have what you need to put a quick meal together, you’re more […]
These Pork Chops are tasty and go well with bread. Easy to cook and ready in under 30 minutes if you know your way around the kitchen. This recipe comes from Gordon Ramsay’s Fast Food and can also be seen on youtube. I’ve added the youtube video to the end of the article for your […]

Today I went to check the mail and was delighted to find that after only a few days, my new paring knife set had arrived! I promised to post back with my opinion of these bad boys after using them, so here you go. I made Shepherd’s Pie again and used the little curved paring […]
Today my fiance told me that she will never be a great chef since she can’t keep track of so many things at once. In essence, cooking scares her. As a matter of fact, she just had a nightmare last night that she was cooking, lost control of all the things happening and not only […]
Knives are invaluable in the kitchen and cooking with cheap, or dull knives is unpleasant at best. In my article “My New Knives” I evaluated several brands of cutlery and explained why I purchased the Katana Series knives by Calphalon, yet I apparently left out a serious contender. Those of you on a limited budget […]
Gordon Ramsay cooked this recipe for some construction workers on the F Word recently. He goes really fast, and it’s hard to make sure I’ve got all of the ingredients right, but I think I’ve got it. Give it a try and let me know how it turns out. *edit: I made this stew a […]
Gordon Ramsay made this soup in a competition against the owner/head chef of Clubway 41. Clubway 41 had a broccoli soup which consisted of 20 different ingredients, whereas Gordon Ramsay’s broccoli soup consisted of just 5! This soup really only contains 3 ingredients, should you choose to not count water and garnish as ingredients; “most […]
Gordon Ramsay cooked this delicious looking salad on the F Word a couple of weeks ago and I intend to find out how it tastes! I love crayfish/crawdads/crawfish/crawdaddies or what ever they’re called in your region.
Catching trout can be a fun and rewarding experience and eating them is even better! Whether you catch your trout from a fresh mountain river (like I did), or the local fish monger, you’re certain to have a delicious meal when you get home. I’ve been fishing three out of the last five days and […]

Eating Snails from the Garden – Part 2 Not to long ago I posted an article on eating snails from the garden, this is the second half of that article where you get delicious instructions on cooking them! This recipe is based off of Gordon Ramsay’s Escargot salad recipe from the F Word. As lunatic […]
This dish is so delicious that you can mess it up and it will still leave you feeling as if you’re in heaven! As always, use fresh herbs and vegetables. When using the freshest ingredients, it’s hard to make a meal that doesn’t taste good.
I prepared this dish for my family tonight and totally bungled it, yet everyone still left happy!
Admit it, you’ve suspiciously eyed those little snails in your backyard and wondered if they were the same thing being sold at the posh french restaurant down the street. If you’re a fan of Escargot, you’re in luck, because you can get it right out of your garden! I was watching Gordon Ramsay’s F Word […]
The Search For Real Cutting Power As I’ve become more serious about cooking, I’ve realized that my old J.A. Henckels Eversharp knives just aren’t doing the trick. If you’re not familiar with Eversharp knives, they’re basically serrated like those infomercial knives so that they never need to be sharpened. They don’t really cut anything, but […]
This recipe isn’t very easy on the eyes, but it’s wonderful in the belly! A nice filling lunch, but not something you’d want to cook for a first date.

This is a quick recipe which also uses up your leftover chicken from last night (you did eat chicken last night, right?). If you’re going to pack the lunch to go, make sure to store the chicken and watercress in different containers and mix them when you’re ready to eat.
