Love: David and The One

Because I Can: Homemade Ketchup

David tells the tale of how he came to make homemade ketchup…and, in so doing, how he also learned not to let anyone tell him he can’t do something.

Two carrots, two onions, two bay leaves, two leaks, two sprigs of rosemary, thyme, celery, salt, and pepper for making the brine for the better brined roast chicken.

A Better Brine for Chicken

David explains his unconventional and amazing approach to brining a chicken before roasting–a technique we’ve never seen anyone else do anywhere. So easy. So unspeakably effective.

Forever and Completely

As David explains, precious few things in life are forever and completely. His adoration for this chocolate cake is one of those precious few things. One taste and you’l understand.
