A Better, and more cost effective way to gain new customers and new revenue.

In todays economy it is even more important to ensure that your tools are working just as hard as you are.  So many business owners are currently in "panic mode" trying everything they can to drag customers in the door.  One of the biggest methods being used today is group buying, and giving out massive discounts, while this may work to get someone in the door, it's very important to think about the affect on your business.  Let's use a restaurant as an example.  You put out this coupon… Continue

Dinnertime Salvation for us busy people

It’s Sunday night, or as most men know it as 4th and long. You’ve got a long busy week of kids, school, work, appointments, and general household duties, oh and let’s not forget that important one…cooking. I’m pretty sure the first person to ever think up cloning had to have been a parent, but that will have to be another topic for now let’s get to making your life easier. Sunday for me is a great time to set up my week for success by preparing “components” so that meals can be put together in… Continue

Stock is easier than you think

I recently received a question from one of my readers that asked about making stock, and what was the difference between broth, and stock. Well the main difference between broth and stock is that stock is made from the bones which is where all the flavor and body is.( no pun intended) I am not a fan at all of bouillon, because if you look at the ingredient label one of the main ingredients is salt. If you really want good flavor go to the meat department of your grocery store and they always… Continue

Tips to prevent premature food rotting

In my many years in restaurants I found that more restaurants wasted food by not storing it correctly, which would increase their costs. Well these same principals apply in our homes, think about it, if we don’t store foods properly they go bad faster, and ultimately go in the trash making us go and buy the foods we already had. Here are some quick tips to help understand where foods should be held.

One easy method is, while you are shopping look at where the foods are stored there.… Continue

Hi Chris, sorry for the delay. Yep, bugs and tech gremlions haunted us these past two weeks. Seems all is working fine now. We are working on a new platform so we will likely suspend points temporarily (keeping yours until we add them back) at a later date. We will keep you in formed as we strive to make FohBoh even better.

Hi Chris!

There should be no delay in the points updating after you've commented, posted a blog, discussion, etc..... However we were having some technical issues over the last week that suspended the point accumulation. All should be back to normal now and we have added 100 points to your tally.

Have a great day!
