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

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 …

A Mother’s Cake is a Powerful Thing

Mama Said Knock You Out Happy mothers day! Wait, what? I’m early?! Whoa, that’s a first! But it’s for good reason. A couple of months ago, Wilton asked if I had anything inspirational to share about my mom. Without even thinking about it, about a hundred different things popped in my head. So I thought I’d share a few with you today. We all have memories of growing up and getting older. As the years …

Honeyed Chicken – A Recipe from Game of Thrones

Happy Game of Thrones week! For those who don’t know what Game of Thrones is… Who the heck are you?! To my returning fans… I can’t believe we’re on season 5 already, can you?! The premier is Sunday, April 12th on HBO and I’m counting down the minutes! I still remember the first time I got hooked on the show. But even though I’d love to get into it and talk your ears off for …

Creamy Chicken Noodle Soup

So I’ve been trying to get this on the blog for a while now. It’s been a long time coming and here it is, just in time for it to watch winter hit itself with the doorknob on the way out. We still have a few days here and there forecasted that dip in the 50’s, but for the most part we’re enjoying some nice weather. I know as of this writing a bunch of …

Coconut Cream Pi, a Gastronomical Constant

Happy Pi Day! Can you believe it? We’re here celebrating Pi Day again! I find it rather hilarious that Pi Day is the one constant holiday that I always try to make a post about every year. Why is that hilarious? Because I absolutely despise math! I was always terrible at it as a kid, and just like my maturity level, not much has changed since then. But we’re not here to talk about my terrible …

Antipasto and You!

Once upon a time, in a mystical, unforgivably hot, far away land – that you may know as Florida – lived my wife and I. It’s hard to think about it now, but we were young once. We lived recklessly and laughed in the face of responsibility. We did unspeakable things that I, as a parent now, am appalled by. What did we do? I’m almost afraid to tell you because I know we’ll be …

Caprese Salad with a Balsamic Reduction

Alright, I hope everyone is ready for the best salad that has ever been created! It’s easily the simplest, tastiest, most addicting salad that you’ll probably ever try. Oh man, I sincerely hope you’ve had this before. If you haven’t, please let me know so I can unfriend you. It’s been a long time coming, getting this on the blog. I’ve made it numerous times and had multiple opportunities to document and create a post. …
