Kid Rock – All Summer Long Guess what? Summer is almost over! Man, I can’t wait. But other than that, remember when I mentioned I had more than a few things lined up for the blog and all I had to do was find the recipes? Well I hope you weren’t too attached to those mysterious concoctions because I have no idea what I did with the blueprints. I’m going to have to make everything all …

Shinedown – simple man Oh, hello there! It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Wow, about 2 months since my last post. And don’t go acting like you noticed because I know you didn’t! It’s been so long, this post is a couple of days in the making because I honestly forgot how to write. When you don’t even pick up your laptop for 2 months, you’ll find yourself staring at a screen for a while …

Blink 182 – Whats my age again I briefly mentioned it once or twice but I guess I’ll reluctantly bring it up again since the bulk of this post has to do with it… About a month ago, I… I celebrated my 30th birthday. There, I said it. The big 3-0. You women tend to think us guys don’t care about the numbers because, well you know, we’re like fine wines and all. But that’s …

Pink – Here Comes The Weekend There are plenty of good things that come out of taking what feels like years to customize your blog the way you want it. One of those things is having a nice chunk of content to blog about when you get to posting again. I haven’t really made something substantial in weeks and yet I have a few weeks worth of stuff that I could write about. I have …

Limp Bizkit – Almost Over Welcome! By now I would hope that you’ve noticed a few new things around here. Let me start by acknowledging the elephant in the room: This is my new home! Thanks to a birthday gift from my mom (thanks mom!) I am now the proud owner of TheManTheChefTheDad.com. This not only means it’s going to be easier to share my address with people, but it also means I’m invested, so …

Cinco de Quesadilla

  It’s Cinco de Mayo time in the food blogosphere so I figured why not throw my contribution in the hat too? I am Hispanic after all, and it would give me a good opportunity to show off my latin flare. …. Haha, Ok, that was funny. Yes, I am Puerto Rican, no, I am not Mexican. Although, some people who work for my wife might not understand those differences: “So what made you marry …

Onions, Caramelization and You

caramelized onions

If you’ve never made caramelized onions before then you’ve been missing out. It has to be the best way to have onions. …If you don’t count deep frying them. I can understand if you were intimidated and didn’t want to venture into the deep, dark, scary road that is caramelizing onions. But at the same time, I don’t understand at all! Like all things that are worth making in the kitchen, the secret behind caramelizing …

Hard Boiled Garlic Bread

Like A Stone So we had spaghetti last night. One thing I love about spaghetti night is I get to make garlic bread. I freaking love me some garlic bread. With 2 different variations already on here, I figured why not help you put one to more use. How’s that? Well if you’re like us, you get so full on pasta, you won’t always eat all the bread – which is where this post comes in. Having leftover …

…Of Cooking with Music

cooking with music

Music is a powerful force. It can heal emotional scars or create them. I’ve always had a deep love and appreciation for music. Well, I used to. I was heavy into it with my finger on the pulse of all the newest albums and tracks. Not to mention the love I had for Choir singing and performing in Musical Theater, but that’s a different street on Memory Lane. Nowadays, it’s a completely different story. While …
