I made a beef stir-fry last night using the Szechuan (Sichuan, if you prefer) peppercorns from our local Penzy's store in downtown Homewood. They had a nice burn, and slightly numbed my lips. Has anyone seen them at any of the local Asian markets?
Put jackfruit bacon on your pork bacon or use it as a smoky, salty sub.
Easy Crab Cakes
Crab cakes are so often disappointing -- mushy or gummy, full of starchy filler. But these easy cakes are full of beautiful lump crabmeat, and a light panko coating ensures they fry up crispy and golden brown. Bright, lemony aioli makes a piquant counterpart to the sweet, sweet crab.
