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 …

Chicken, Cheese & Bacon Casserole

First off, allow me to apologize. When I ventured into making this meal I had no idea where I was going with it. I didn’t know how I was going to plate it nor did I know how it was going to taste. Because I was so clueless I didn’t bother taking any pictures of the process. It wasn’t until I was done that I realized I had made one crazy meal. My original intention …

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 …

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 …

Alfredo is my Middle Name

If I knew I would live after the fact, I would have no problems injecting Alfredo sauce into my veins. It’s easily one of my favorite sauces and I think a lot of it has to do with my unhealthy obsession with parmesan cheese. Seriously, give me a piece of wood, and if it has enough parmesan on it, I’d probably eat it. In my eyes, Alfredo sauce is not used nearly enough as it …

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 …

Welcome… to Jurassic Pork

I’ve been going at this for a couple of months and not once have I mentioned anything with pork. This realization has brought much shame to not only me, but my family and heritage as well. As a matter of fact, this is probably the reason why my little blog has not taken off yet. I completely understand, Internet. And I do not blame you. But fear not, for I have a remedy… Pernil. Or as …

Winner , Winner …

Even were a cook to cook a fly, he would keep the breast for himself.                                 ~Polish  Proverb Growing up, my mother cooked everyday. Yeah, we’d occasionally get a pizza night or go out to that seafood place with the big red bottom dwelling crustacean. But most of the time, she’d be slaving away in the kitchen, cooking up a storm …
