Perfect Pan Steak

• First, ask your butcher for a 3.3-pound well-marbled bone-in ribeye in vacuum packaging. The bone is important, because it helps to keeps the meat moist.

We got about 10 pounds of them from my son, Tyler’s friend a couple months ago and had them in the freezer. I thought it would make a nice spring dish to welcome in the warmer temperatures and start our plans …

31 Nights of Horror. Night 18: Psycho

Alfred Hitchcock’s best work, at least in my opinion, is Psycho (1960). It is the benchmark for American cinema today. It not only has superb acting with Anthony Perkins and Janet Leigh nailing it from early on in the film, to cool visual effects and camera work that Baby Boomers weren’t accustomed to. Hitchcock is pure genius. He kept the …

House of Ghosts

The world premiere of House of Ghosts is drawing near! If you are a fan of the drive-in and the ultra-cool, albeit sometimes cheesy, sci-fi thrillers of the 1950’s then you will love the films of Christopher R. Mihm. Mihm is the undisputed master of the new-age black and white genre that has been known to draw fans from far …
