Bloomin’ Onions

You're barbecuing. You have plenty of food. You survey the vegetables you're going to serve and start to second guess yourself. You begin to feel the vegetables are heavily out-weighted by the amount of protein you're going to serve. You quickly need another vegetable to add to the table ... that's where Bloomin' Onions come in! They are a wonderful addition to almost any barbecue. They are simple and easy to prepare. And best of all, they are delicious!!

On Salt

I love salt, I have for years. I loved it ever since I discovered that there was a world of salt out there, salts far more interesting than the table salt I grew up using -- the very salt I wouldn't touch today. I love to use salt to enhance the flavors of my food, but I don't like eating salty food. Therein lies one of the keys to using salt correctly: the flavors should spring to life and the taste of salt should be subtle. Salt is an important ingredient in any kitchen.
