Most of you know that I am the cook of the house. Some days I am a better cook than others. Monday night was one of the good nights when I made one of my best steaks ever. I can always tell when I do a good job with steak cause there is nothing but scraps left on my wife's plate. Such was the case on Monday when I served a couple of NY Strips that I had marinated earlier in the day. I think it was the marination process that made the difference. If I can duplicate it with my next steaks, I will publish it here.
Although I know my way around the kitchen, I am by no means an expert. I often find terms and ingredients in recipes that I am unfamiliar with. My first stop is usually my copy of Cooking A to Z. I stumbled upon a new site today that will help when I can't find what I am looking for in hard copy. The Cook's Thesaurus is a simple site that contains lots of pictures and substitutions for recipes when you can't find exactly what is called for. Check it out for yourself when you can't figure out what a daikon is.
