Cupcake Brownies

Sixteen Saltines So we’re trying to eat better in this house. It’s been a long time coming and I’ve been waiting for it. I’ve been wanting to get on a better track for a while now but I’ve either strayed or put off an official attempt. Well now I’m officially attempting. I’m getting older. I don’t want my reckless way of managing my health catching up with me. I got kids that I have to …

Ladies and Gentlemen!

Ladies and Gentlemen Oh, hello! Been a while hasn’t it? More than 4 months if you’re counting. Where have I been? Well, I’ll get to that. First off, that elephant is in the room again… A new blog! Do you like it? New layout, new header, new front page.. I just love that new blog smell. And it’s not even the site’s birthda… wait, that’s this week! Look at that, it’s almost like I planned this…. …

Apple Pie Scones

I really didn’t want to be that guy who does nothing but constantly remind you how fast time is going, but seriously, we’re almost done with October and it’s absolutely insane. I mean, it’s great, don’t get me wrong. Being able to open your windows and have a crisp autumn breeze run through your house is an pleasure I look forward to through all of summer. Leaves falling, the colors, the smells, The Nightmare Before …

Pumpkin Swirl Shutdown Brownies

Due to a lapse in government funding, this blog will not be updated until further notice. Please accept a picture of these awesome Pumpkin Swirled Brownies as consultation for any inconvenience this may cause. Ok, fine. I’m not funded by the government. Can you believe it though? I can’t. I refuse to. I mean, when I realized my last post was almost an entire month ago, I was so disappointed in myself. On top of …

Cinnamon Swirl Chocolate Chip Banana Bread

Flobots – White Flag Warrior I know we’re more than a week into it but seriously, freaking September?! I don’t know what it is, maybe it’s the age we live in now where the world is at our fingertips, but when I was a kid a year felt like a year. On top of that, the month of December felt like a year too. I mean, should I be like retail stores and start with …

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 …

Gravy My Biscuits

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 …

Peanut Butter & Oatmeal Ninja Chocolate Smoothie

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 …

Chocolate Chip Orange Cookies

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 …
