“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 […]

Insalate Napoli – Inspired by Tutta Bella

Insalate Napoli – Inspired by Tutta Bella

  I was dusting off the internet and found this one tucked into a draft folder that I guess I never got around to finishing. We LOVE THIS SALAD.  Take note of the dressing “trick.” My sister has referred me to many great restaurants around […]

Erryday Caesar Dressing

Erryday Caesar Dressing

There just isn’t a lot to say about this one. We love Caesar Salad at our home. Simple, salty, tangy, citrusy, eggy, cheesy, peppery, etc. The kids would eat it every night. The only thing we do different from a tradish Caesar Salad is that […]

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 […]

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 […]

Applejack Cocktails

Applejack Cocktails

I typically equate hard cider with wimpy and/or gluten free drinkers. Reminds me of those that can’t digest milk. I get that its real, but still find it a little hard to comprehend. So when I saw Michael Ruhlman do a mini-series of cocktail posts […]

Friday Wrap Up

Friday Wrap Up

Don’t you love the fall? It makes me want to buy school supplies. Now that school is back in full swing, I may be starting to get my wits back. Between back-to-school/football/activity orientations and meetings, arranging carpool (why don’t parents do that anymore?), and trying […]
