I’m not traditionally one to enjoy making a soup in the kitchen, but I do enjoy eating one – especially on a cold, winter day (like today). I also don’t typically equate ...
Our son Gavin LOVES McDonald’s chicken nuggets and French fries…but then again, I think every kid probably does. As a family, we have tried to eat healthier at home and so we’ve also cut back on how much fast food, take out, or restaurant food we let our boys eat. They didn’t eat much to begin […]
As promised, here is the full post for how I do quesadillas on the grill. They are relatively simple but here’s a few things that you’ll need before you get too far along… if you prefer to try them how I make them. A sauté grill pan Peppers and veggies Chihuahua cheese Mexican seasonings (chipotle […]
These are pretty easy and I’ll post a more in depth blog about it later. But the idea is this: Cook your precut peppers on the grill in a grill pan Throw the tortillas on the grill until they have nice grill marks Add cheese and peppers and cover until cheese is melted.
I’m not traditionally one to enjoy making a soup in the kitchen, but I do enjoy eating one – especially on a cold, winter day (like today). I also don’t typically equate soups with being very “manly” – but hopefully this version passes the “man test” and is worthy to be posted on my blog. I used […]
I apologize in advance for the lack of pictures on this post, so I’ll try to explain things as best as I can. When I was making this, I think my wife was at the gym and I was home with our boys – so it probably was a little hectic. Of course, if you […]

I wasn’t sure what to call these, so if anyone knows the correct name, please let me know. Despite the lack of a solid name, these are really easy to make and they taste delicious. On nights where we want a light dinner, these are perfect. They also make great appetizers too since they are on […]
Tomorrow at work we are having an “Italian Potluck” for lunch and I signed up to bring Italian meatballs in a red sauce (for sandwiches). However, I’ve never made meatballs before, so I decided to first make them for dinner tonight to see how they would turn out before I made a huge batch of them for […]
I’ve recently taken some time off from blogging while working on some other projects and just being busy in general over the holidays; however, I think I’m ready to get back into the swing of things. Recently, my wife and I ate at Bill and Giuliana Rancic’s Italian restaurant in downtown Chicago called RPM (www.rpmitalian.com). […]
Inside out burgers are a great way to safeguard a lot your essential flavors and juices by securing the “inside” ingredients between two hamburger patties. The idea is try to sear the outside patties together and essentially prevent the flavors from escaping. They really aren’t that complicated and you can easily add some of your […]
