Dear graduating class of 2012:
As you set forth upon the world in your enthusiasm to make it a better place, I would like you to remember a few things:

-Forget everything you learned in school about you…

What would it be? If you could own and manage a restaurant, what kind would it be. I have always dreamed of owning a small diner, open for breakfast and lunch. We would serve all the standard diner fare, but kicked up a bit;

Spring is trying to make a premature appearance here in Minnesota and beside the long-awaited thaw and the resurrection
of baseball, golfing, garage sales and fishing, we dream of the day the men can pull the Weber’s out of the garage and anoint them with slabs of animal flesh to grill upon…

Recently we discussed the joys of waitressing and the old days when the waitress actually did all the work. That discussion was a perfect segue into this blog post. A lot of the comments left by you the readers mentioned that customer service has gone

Back in the day, a waitress would seat you, wipe off the table, take your drink order, bring your drink order, take you order for apps and the meal, and actually bring it out; then they would ask if you wanted dessert, bring it to you if you wanted it,

Bacon grease, chicken skin, butter, lard and cream, just to name a few. Fat is a nutrient. It is crucial for normal body function and without it we could not live. Not only does fat supply us with energy, it also makes

For the last three years my wife and I have had an on again-off again love/hate relationship
with the IHOP in the Riverdale Mall in Coon Rapids MN. In order for them to improve their awful ways, we have kept coming back with an open mind for breakfast many times.

Some chefs have favorite seasonings-say bay leaves that seem to end up in every dish they make.
