Garlic – 2/22/2023 – Invite

February 20th, 2023

Hey Friends! We’re without our fearless leader, Jeremy, this week as he goes to fight off the barbarians to the North in Milwaukee. Meanwhile, Jason and I will continue to serve you up dishes we believe to be delicious and you will probably at least respect our enthusiasm. This week, we delve into that delectable […]

Hello friends! We’ve past All Hallows Eve and Day, we’re barreling down to the next feasting and gorging holiday, but we would be remiss here at Cooking Army if we did not recognize the delights of the season: Fall. For this very special Fall edition of Cooking Army, we are going to delight you with […]

Welcome again folks! This week’s menu is brought to you by the recent dinner we had with friends where they left an enormous amount of red wine as leftovers. To take advantage of this windfall, we are going to wine and dine you this Wednesday. With red wine in all the dishes. That’s right! I’m […]

Howdy folks! Sorry for a little late notice, but Summer is finally here! With the Solstice upon us, I figured we should dance around the fire in honor of the Sun gods and lords of Summer. Or at least, sacrifice some meats upon the almighty grill. And so we shall. Join us in this celebration […]

Hello there! There were a few recipes within the past couple weeks that I’ve been wanting to do, but just my luck, the timing just hasn’t worked out. I had these Irish recipes that would have been perfect for St. Patrick’s Day, but that blew past us like a phantom L train. Well, you lucky […]

Greetings Eaters! It’s been some time, but we’re back! After our brief hibernation and recovery from the holidays, the Cooking Army is back to serve you some grub. Now that we’re in the throes of deep Chicago winter, it’s time to warm up those bellies with comfort food to raise that body temperature. I’m also […]

Hello Eaters, Pre-Covid we had an annual house party we call the Christmas Tree Burn where I cook ribs and pork butt and salmon and we pass out Christmas Tree branches to the small children to throw on the fire. We’ll be doing that this week! Minus the ribs, kids and Christmas Tree. Come and eat, […]

Hello Hello!It’s finally gotten cold out, children are diving into piles of leaves and gaining bruises because those things are not nearly as cushioned as TV leads you to believe… People are carving pumpkins that will be prime for smashing in a week, which means it’s time for some fall food! We’re bringing back a […]

Hello Friends! The very first thing I must do is apologize to our friends who may be lactose intolerant. We have nothing against you, it is a particular curse I would not wish on most of my enemies. With that said, this week’s menu includes CHEESE. Feta, provolone, cheddar, gruyere, graviera or kefalograviera or kasseri or kefalotyri (depending on […]

My fellow Cooking Army Eaters, It has come to my attention that it is entirely too cold outside. In that regard, we shall attempt to warm everyone deep down in their bellies by utterly drenching everything in bourbon this week. Even if we don’t get you warm enough, maybe we can get you to have […]
