The Wife’s Sunday Dinners – Meatloaf

Here we go! The first food post in forever! I know it’s not so much for you, but for me it’s a big deal! Like, block-out-the-sun type huge! Seriously, It’s really hard to measure my excitement, it’s so astronomical. Marvel in its totality! Ok, good eclipse puns are hard. But you know what’s not hard? Relaxing on the beach. Probably not a good day to do that, but that’s where I’ll be today. Usually I’m …

Restaurant Review Section | Mrs. Lovett’s Pie Shop on Fleet Street

  A Little Priest Happy Pi Day everyone!! I really hope you enjoyed this because I enjoyed writing it & putting it together! I found the Mrs. Lovett’s Pies poster but I made the Pirelli poster.. that’s how into it I was!  The pie is so freaking good, probably the best meat pie I’ve made. I’m sure Mrs. Lovett would be proud. I’ve been wanting to do a Sweeney Todd/meat pie post for a while, …

A Pie of Ice and Fire

Happy Game of Thrones Day! What? Surprised? A food blog with no Easter recipe on Easter? The horror! I figured, every other food blog you probably check out will be doing something for Easter, so why add to the pile? Against the stream, I say! So while I celebrate Easter with my family, my blog will be here celebrating the premier of Game of Thrones’  third season which airs tonight on HBO. Sadly, I don’t …

Not Commander Shepard’s Pi

Happy Pi Day! Hey, I still have a half hour before the day is officially over, give me a break! That’s what I get for not planning ahead. Anyway, I’d love to post about a sweet pie instead of a savory one, like I did last year with Yoder’s Peanut Butter Cream Pie. But I’ve been meaning to post this for a long time now, and what better day than today!? This isn’t a weekly …

The Greatest & Best Chili in the World …Tribute

[sc_embed_player fileurl=”http://themanthechefthedad.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/Tenacious-D-Tribute.mp3″] It was a long time ago, but yes, I did win first place in a Chili cook-off. It happened, and for a moment, something I made was considered to be best in the world. It’s a great feeling and something that I hold dear to my heart since at the time, I was basically at the beginning of my cooking career. That young, I honestly had no idea what I was really doing. …

I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for Spaghetti

  I’ve mentioned before that we have a fairly repetitive rotation of meals we eat throughout the week. Some things get retired or get put on the back burner, so to speak, when we get tired of it. The beloved Taco Tuesday has seen this fate once or twice. But there is one meal in particular that is so popular in this house I don’t think it will ever be skipped or taken out of the …
