Episode #55 – Listener Questions!

 

A last minute cancellation meant that I had thirty minutes to answer listener questions, and tell you a tale of talking a teenager out of being a vegetarian, by talking him in to being a critical thinker. That said, I realized as I was trying to demystify cooking birds (chickens and turkeys specifically) that more information may be a bad thing. You tell me.

Special thanks to CraftCoffee.com, the official coffee sponsor of Sharp & Hot who emailed me earlier this week to tell me my monthly shipment of hand selected artisan coffees is on the way. Yay!
