I’m thinking of breaking veg…Advice?

I’ve been vegetarian for over the past two and a half years. I started out very convinced that it was the right thing to do, and I still think that vegetarianism is a very noble practice. I just don’t believe in it as strongly as I used to, so I’ve decided to go back to eating meat. I definitely won’t be eating as much meat as I used to –probably just when my family cooks quality meat, or for holiday meals– but I hope you understand my reasoning and respect my decision.

That being said, do you have any warnings or advice for when I begin to eat meat again? I’m sure I’ll need to go through a slow adjustment, to get used to consuming animal products again, but I appreciate any input you can give me.

Im so proud of you! You finally came to your senses and realized being a vegetarian is WRONG! Remember you don’t have to eat meat all the time. Start out slow and work it back into your diet. go at your own pace until you find your comfort zone where meat is in your diet. Once again Im proud of you and eat plenty of meat during this BBQ Season!

About The Kitchen Knife

Your cooking experience will not be the same if you do not have the best kitchen knife around. The knife is one of the most important tools in the kitchen, not only for the professional cook or chef, also for the beginner and the avid cook a good and quality knife will make sure that the work is done well.

Meat and poultry will not be cooked to perfection when they are not cut the right way. This is the same with vegetables. They have to be sliced properly so they will look succulent and enticing to eat.

Ever seen recipes and prepared meals from magazines or on television? What makes them extraordinary is the way the food is arranged. Try having a taste of some of them. Chances are, they will not taste as good as they seem to be.

Your basic kitchen knife is basically the secret how your food will be presented to those who will be eating them. With the use of your kitchen knife, you can really cook everything to perfection and make everyone’s mouth water just by looking at them.

How do you look for the best kitchen knife?

1. Look at the shape and style.

Different knife styles are used by different people for different purposes. For example, the cook’s knife is primarily used for heavy-duty cutting. They are heavier and longer than most ordinary knife. Dicing, chopping and slicing can be done using the cook’s knife.

Slicing knife is smaller than and not as long as the cook’s knife. It is used basically for slicing soft or large cut of meats.

While bread knife has smaller blades. They are not as sharp as the other kinds of knives because they only cut soft portions of types of breads. A bread knife will become dull when it is used for cutting food stuff other than bread.

2. The knife handle.

The handle of your knife can be made from different kinds of materials. Some of the more basic ones are stainless steel, composite, plastic and wood.

Plastic knife handles can be made into any shape you want it to be. They can also be designed so that it will snugly fit your grip. The modern makers of these types of knives are making use of computer enhancements to determine the best shape and mold.

Rib Eye Steak Recipe by the BBQ Pit Boys

The BBQ Pit Boys show you the “tips and tricks” to help you easily serve up the “best steak anywhere”, the Rib Eye Steak. What makes the Rib Eye #1 for many? The Rib Eye steak, or ribeye, also known as the Delmonico or Scotch Fillet (Australia), is a beef steak from the small end of the rib roast. When the Rib Eye section of the beef is cut into steaks, it is one of the most popular, tender and juiciest steaks available. This is because the meat from the rib section is tender and fattier or “marbled” more than most other parts of the steer. This extra fat makes Rib Eye steaks and roasts especially tender and flavorful. The Rib Eye steak is usually served bone-in, particularly at high quality steakhouses -the extra moisture and fat alongside the bone enhances the flavor. So get yourself some 1 to 11/2 lb and 11/2″-2″ thick Rib Eye steaks –and then go “fire up” that BBQ grill of yours -it’s time for some real STEAK On The Barbecue.
