Pork Chops with Rum Apple Glaze

Alright, it’s been a while, so why not give you guys a recipe?! Fall is coming. And if you haven’t checked your calendar recently, it’s coming ridiculously fast. It’s almost September! So I’m going to try and get the jump on some fall flavors here because let’s be honest, there’s nothing better than fall flavors. I still haven’t made anything worthwhile in the kitchen. Every time I make something small like banana bread or just …

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. …

Jamberry Santa Suit Cookies

Jacks Obsession The day has finally come! I feel like I’ve been holding this secret in forever. A few weeks ago, the Wilton Treat Team was asked if we’d like to do a Secret Santa cookie swap amongst each other. With me never taking part but always having the urge to participate in one, I jumped at the idea! I thought the idea sounded like a blast. I was already thinking about the cookie I …

Candy Cane and Pretzel Holiday Bark

What’s This It’s Christmas time!! Kris my Kringles, where the heck has the year gone?! I know, I’m pretty bad with this blog thing during the holidays. So many great blogs out there with so many holiday posts coming out of their yule logs. Christmas cookies, pies, all that jazz, just overflowing the internet. It’s so great to see. Sadly, I can hardly find the time to get in the kitchen to do anything these …

Pumpkin Spiced Pumpkin Seeds

I Put a Spell on You Alright, so If you’re doing Halloween remotely right, there are very good odds you have already, or will be carving up a pumpkin very soon. And when you’re in there, getting elbow deep in pumpkin guts, you may or may not know about the treasure hidden inside these orange globes of fall goodness. So allow me to shed some light. It was 2 whole years ago (yikes) when we …
