Twice Cooked Honey Roasted Duck Legs

Cooking in Sens


I’ve found an Asian supply grocery!  It’s called Laos Asian Market.  Very old school with vegetables, fruits, rice and noodles scattered around the floor in boxes, multiple freezers and refrigerators, shelves bursting with condiments, flours, spices, tableware, baskets, chopsticks, etc.  Just what I was looking for!  And I absolutely adored the really, really old guy who, looking like a proximate observer if not escapee from the Cambodian killing fields, speaking perfect English but choosing to leave us to our shopping while he continued viewing his TV program in the back room, was consideration itself.  Perfect. Rural Pennsylvania has it’s moments 🙂


Of course I bought a ridiculous amount of stuff but was rational enough to remember that I had good quality, “gaver” duck legs in the freezer to cook.


I remembered a recipe for twice cooked duck legs that I thought was beyond good and decided to go with that.  The recipe gives you a…

Deflategate Is Yet Another Bogus Scandal


Last year, as noted by Slate but also by most everyone with antennae for such things, was a year characterized by outrage. Some of it registered to these eyes as earnest, some of it not so much—but 2014 may as well have been characterized by the absence of reliable, responsible arbitrators. Whether out of academia-drilled rigid lefty deference, or out of mere laziness, the b.s.-spotters took a holiday. This is why the year felt like one extended apology tour for Lena Dunham, this is why a software company with a market cap of $36 billion went on Twitter to announce that it stood against bullying. Crazy times, October.

To judge by the first month of 2015, and especially by our most treasured cultural institution—the NFL playoffs—this year is shaping up to be similarly brutal. The story, for those lucky enough to have missed it: The New England Patriots used under-inflated…

Your Daily Elephant


Continuing the photographic series on the daily lives of elephants.  I’m often amazed at the colors and depth of field on old 35 mm. film.  This photograph has such a pastoral feel to it.  Kodachrome 400, elephants in the Samburu reserve, Kenya.

Canes’ Murphy: ‘I was a little spoiled last year’


Hurricanes defenseman Ryan Murphy is in his second full season with the organization and getting used to the shuttle service between Carolina and Charlotte.

He began this season, like last, with the Hurricanes, but once again has seen time in the American Hockey League with the Checkers.

“It’s been a bit of a roller coaster… getting the demotion and going down and playing in Charlotte,” Murphy told PHT this week. “But I took it as an opportunity to work hard and get back up here.

“The last 10 games since I’ve been (in the NHL) have been good to me.”

Murphy made the Canes’ opening day roster last season out of training camp and appeared in 48 games with Carolina recording 12 points, 10 penalty minutes and a minus-9 rating while averaging 18:17 in ice time a night. Near the midway mark of the season the Canes sent Murphy to…
