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 …

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 …

A Toast to Spring

Alright, let me make this clear and get it out in the open before anything gets misconstrued. I’m no smoothie maker. I was never really big on the smoothie scene. I don’t have a huge, $300 blender that has its own infomercial. I’m just a dude that likes fruit. That’s it. No, I’m not converting my food blog to a smoothie blog. Until my $20 blender that I don’t even remember buying burns out and …

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 …

What’s Taters, Precious?!

“What’s Taters, eh?” “PO-TAY-TOES! Boil ’em, mash ’em, stick ’em in a stew…” Haha. Sorry… Whenever I see the word “taters” I always hear poor, little Smeagol asking what they are. I love me some mashed potatoes. And there are close to a bajillion ways to make them. Not talking proper vs improper, I’m talking all the different things you can put in them to make them different. These today are your basic garlic variety. …

Creamed KoRn

I’m not going to lie to you. I never made creamed corn before I started making shepherd’s pie. I never had any ambition to make it. I never had it growing up. My grandmother used to make a thousand things but never once do I recall her making creamed corn. When I made it the first time, my wife had to correct me on how it was supposed to taste! Fast forward to today and …

The Soup That Shall Be Named

So spring is right around the corner. Just a few short weeks until winter is behind us and I don’t have to worry about things like polar bears or the wife slipping on ice. It’ll be sad to see the season go, but with spring comes a vast array of colors and flavors that I kind of miss. But I’m not here to gush over spring like I embarrassingly did last year. The winds have …

Brownie Points

Alright, before you get all googly eyed and start to develop a puddle of drool on your keyboard, let it be known that I do not like these brownies. When I walked into the kitchen to make them, I had a very different end product in my mind. It consisted of these brownies, topped with salt and a white chocolate butter cream frosting with all sorts of pizzazz on top of them. It was going to …

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 …
