Pork Chops with Rum Apple Glaze

ft-apples

Alright, it’s been a while, so why not give you guys a recipe?! Fall is coming. And if you haven’t checked your calendar recently, it’s coming ridiculously fast. It’s almost September! So I’m going to try and get the jump on some fall flavors here because let’s be honest, there’s nothing better than fall flavors. I still haven’t made anything worthwhile in the kitchen. Every time I make something small like banana bread or just …

Let’s Go, Ghostbusters! | Riding Memory Lane in an Ecto-1

uj2Gngc

This post is going to be about Ghostbusters! With the 30th anniversary behind us and the new movie out now, I figured I’d dedicate a post to my original four idols. My heroes in beige, who cursed and drank and smoked on screen. Man, those were different times! I’ll also get into the LEGO Ghostbusters Ecto-1 set which I recently built a couple of days ago with the kids. But for now, let me paint …

The Only Thing Constant Is Change

IMG_4060

This is going to be an update. No recipes, no food, just bringing you up to speed on la vida and what’s been going on. Bit of a warning up front: This is probably going to be a little long winded. Maybe if I feel like it I’ll put a TL;DR at the bottom. I have a lot to say. I mean, a lot’s been going on. And I’ve never been one to summarize, not …

Christmas Cookie Lollapalooza

ccl-ft

If there’s one thing you gotta love about Christmas time, it’s the joy you get to share with loved ones. Nah, who am I kidding, it’s the cookies. You love the cookies. It’s ok, don’t be ashamed, you could admit it. Trust me, you will not be judged. I am the last person who will tell you you’re wrong for loving a cookie more than a family member. Truuuuuuuuust me. But that’s a whole other …

Salted Caramel & Peppermint Hot Cocoa Snowflakes

IMG_2687

Happy holidays!! Just to be clear, I’m not the politically correct type to tell everyone happy holidays. No offense to anyone, but I’ll Merry Christmas your ears till the elves come home. But since we’re in the holiday season and it’s not Christmas yet, that’s how I’m greeting you. But anyway! How’s it going?! Christmas shopping done? Holiday rush getting the best of you? How many elderly people have you pushed out of your way to get …

Pumpkin Doughnuts with Salted Caramel Glaze

ft-doughnuts

Doughnuts! I love doughnuts. Like, looooooove em. There aren’t many things I wouldn’t do for a doughnut. Seriously, when I tell you I’d inject them into my veins, I hope you believe me. The science is there, it’s been done before by great men… Even with my love for them, I’ve gone so many years on this site and I never made any. What’s up with that?! Chalk up another one for unexplainable laziness. But …

Caramel & Chocolate Apples

ft-apples

So yeah, we’re at the end of October. If you haven’t caught on, I usually start my blog posts with a reminder of how fast time flies. It’s not my fault! Whenever I start writing something, the first thing I do is look at the date. And almost every time, I’m dumbfounded by how the calendar days are melting away like butter on a hot grill. I really should stop because it’s not good to live …

The 5th Birthday Cake: Loki’s Tower

October is basically over! Isn’t that just plain ol nuts?! I mean, we’re a whole two months from the end of the year! It’s madness. Even more madness? This is a post about something that happened waaaaaaaaaaaay back in March! Hahaha, yeah, I know! What the heck am I doing? The answer is: I have no idea! Honestly, I made this with every intention of remaking it in the future. Unfortunately, with it being October …

The Breakfast Panwich

ft sand

I know most of you don’t know me. I mean, you know a lot about me, but not characteristic stuff. Well here’s something that not many people know – when I’m eating breakfast, I’m a sandwicher. If you or someone you love is also a sandwicher, then you know what it is. If you don’t know anyone like that, it basically means whatever I’m having, 9 times out of 10, I’m going to make it …

S’mores Truffles

Here we are again! Like it or not, we are quickly approaching the end of summer. I know, it feels like it just started, but what can you do? Personally, I cannot wait to start enjoying that fresh, crisp fall air. It’s just the way I’m wired. Call me crazy, but I’m not a huge fan of being uncomfortably hot. So sayonara, summer, I hardly wanted to know thee. But before it goes, I wanted …
