Â Â Â Â We’ve got a new staple in the Krabill Kitchen – Gary’s Smoky Rub.Â It includes that Smoked Paprika that’s all the rage (peppers are smoked first, then dried), and adds herbs, spices, and sugar to giveÂ depth and flavor to grilled meats.Â We sent the smoke factor over the top by rubbing a pork shoulder first, then cooking it one of our Smoker Bags (lets you smoke meat or fish inside without the hassle of an all-day affair outdoors.)Â (more…)

Sometimes you know there is a lesson there somewhere, you just don’t know where.Â Nestled in the window in the picture above is a baby bird.Â It escaped the lawnmower one day, while its sibling lying nearby had suffered an unclear, but more difficult, and final fate.
Gary moved the little bird away from the lawnmower and we came out to look at it, sure that the next day it would be dead. We googled how to save a baby bird and it seemed beyond us. So a few days later Gary was backing out of the driveway and moved the little bird again,Â just in time, to miss the back tire of the car.Â Again we thought it was a lost cause, and avoided looking too closely at the yard, afraid of what we might see.
Â Â Love Limoncello? Well, let’s make some together!Â We’ve made it before with ok results, but have heard in the meantime that Everclear is the ticket to the best taste (had no idea Everclear was a DOP Italiano product:). We checked around and it’s available at Centennial stores in Dallas, probably most liquor stores.So – here’s the recipe we’re using from the Slow Travel website. Looks like it makes 20 or so 100 ml bottles. We started last weekend with step one and the results pictured above.Â We’ll be checking in from time to time with our progress. Why don’t you join us, and let us know how its going for you?Â Or maybe you’d just like to convince us that you should be the recipient of one of our finished products. Â We shall see!
