Family Travels: Florida Part DCCXV

IMG_8457

We’re finally back from vacation! And by finally, I mean we’ve been here for like a month but I’ve been too lazy to do anything productive. Three cheers for procrastination! Seriously, I feel like a bum, it’s terrible. But at the same time, it’s ok! Want to know why? Because I don’t feel too guilty about it. Sure, you guys have probably been wandering, lost, and scared without my ramblings. But I’m sure you were …

Humpday Update – New Logo, New Links, New Parks!

IMft

Woo hoo! A humpday update! It’s been a long time, huh? I know you missed it. So what’s going on?! The main reason why I wanted to put this together was to announce the following, which I didn’t want to make a specific post for, but wanted to get it out there… I made a new logo!! It’s been a long time coming, that’s for sure. When I made my original logo, I was in …

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 …

My Experience at the 2015 Wilton Sweet-Up!

ft wil

Man! Where to start?! Well, let’s not draw it out. A lot went on and we don’t need filler so I’ll get to it. As you may know, I’m an ambassador for Wilton. As a member of their Sweet Treat Team I’m honored to receive products of theirs to try out and tell you about. It’s an insanely simple relationship we have since I always used their stuff anyway, so when they asked me to …

Family Travels: “Chicago” (Road to the Sweet-Up)

ft port

So I don’t know if you heard, but I took the family on a little trip to Chicago! Of course, by “took” I mean dragged. And by “Chicago” I mean Woodridge, IL which is about a half hour from the city. Aaaaaaaand by “I” I mean Wilton since they invited me over for their Sweet-Up and took care of the hotel accommodations. What’s a Sweet-Up, you ask? Well I’ll get more into that in the …

If you weren’t aware of Wilton and I being best buds, and me being on their Sweet Treat Team, then you’ve either been living under a rock or this is your first time here. Whatever the case, we’re both in for a treat! A little over a week from now, on April 23rd and 24th (a few days before the most important day of the year!), Wilton will be hosting their annual Sweet-Up! They’ll be doing all …

Honeyed Chicken – A Recipe from Game of Thrones

ft chicken

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

ft

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!

ft

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 …
