The Dark and Stormy and a Brief History of Rum

The Dark and Stormy and a Brief History of Rum

I wanted to reload this HH as it has been almost 3 years since I last talked about it and let’s just say a few of these beverages have been consumed since then.  I have read several books during this same stretch on the history […]

Everyday “Mustardy” Vinaigrette

Everyday “Mustardy” Vinaigrette

Everyone needs a salad dressing that they can make in a pinch and will satisfy many tastes, kids included. We try and eat a salad every night but TBH we usually end up with one 3-4 times per week. Like I mentioned before, buying a […]

“Steakhouse” Dressing

“Steakhouse” Dressing

My wife has done a good job getting all of us heathens to eat more salad. Which is good, I think.  Supposedly it is good for digestion, my health and so forth, but the jury is still out, I mean, I am still a big […]

Roasted (whole) Cauliflower

Roasted (whole) Cauliflower

Not gonna lie, never really been a huge fan of cauliflower. My mom made us eat it as kids, usually as part of a “medley” with carrots and other veg. I suppose I didn’t mind it if it was served raw accompanied with ranch either. […]

Cast Iron Skillet Dinner – Chicken, Sausage, and Veg

When you are feeding a crew that ranges from 2-12 depending on a typical weeknight, the idea of a one pot dinner (or skillet, or crock, or dutch oven) has become a part of the weekly dinner line-up.  I suppose not everything tastes good together […]

Linguine Carbonara – Updated

Linguine Carbonara – Updated

I originally posted this back in 2012 but thought I would re-post since it is still so delicious. Plus, this time I used my home-cured pancetta and ditched the sausage meatballs. I also used spaghetti instead of linguine, which is probably a touch more authentic. […]

Grain Free for One Month – The Results are In!

Grain Free for One Month – The Results are In!

So in January of this year I took a month off of grain (mostly).  The goal was threefold: 1) see if I felt any difference physically, 2) see if I would lose weight, and 3) get people (including the internet) off my back regarding how […]
