The One about Making Sundried Tomatoes

One thing that I utilize a lot each month and it gets kind of pricey are purchases of sundried tomatoes. One of the coolest things I invested earlier this year is a really good dehydrator and while roma tomatoes are ideal for dehydrating due to having less water, other tomoato varieties are pretty much 98% water. But yesterday, I dehydrated a lot of cherry tomatoes from the evening to this […]

Please note: I very rarely eat regular potatoes (although, I do eat sweet potatoes), typically during the holidays […]

The One about Making Jerky

Growing up, I loved beef jerky. May it be the ground beef variety ala Slim Jim or the harder version that you would find at your local supermarket.

For those who are not familiar […]
