Gather & Dine Weeknight Clam Chowder Recipe Here

Cookbooks, and online recipes, do one thing very well.  They provide us with photos of food that allow us to eat the food first with our eyes.  Food blogs have taken the photography of food to a new level.  The love affair with good food grows stronger everyday.

A BTU (British thermal unit) is a measure of heat output and applies to the power generated by gas stovetops and ranges.  The capacity of gas burners is measured in BTU per hour.  Residential ranges, patterned after commercial units, have BTUs of 12,000 to 25,000.  If you have one, or are planning a kitchen design, you no doubt know what these are.  But do you really know why you need these?  It’s gotta be for a better reason than bragging rights.
