Get saucy.

I’ve always wanted to make my own barbecue sauce.  Is that a normal thing?  Probably not.  Here’s the sales pitch: You know that stuff that is available in 1 million varieties that you can pick up around the corner at your local Safeway for like 99 cents?  Yea, well, wouldn’t you actually prefer to make […]

Teriyaki yo’ meat, fool.

I would like to teriyaki-fy everything.  I want my chicken wings with the teriyaki sauce, I want my chicken nuggets dipped in it, I want my vegetables drowned in it, and I want every meat marinated in it.  No joke – I can not think of a single exception.  Fish, pork, chicken, beef… yea, bring […]

Sharing Traditions

Last year my guy spent Thanksgiving with my family. I was thrilled. Clearly, I thought the whole thing went perfectly. However, we failed to serve sweet potatoes (his favorite part of Thanksgiving), and then screwed up the gravy (which he likes to create a shallow pool the length of his entire dinner plate).

Easy, one-pot, mac and cheesy!

I’ve made a lot of macaroni and cheese in my day.  One might call me an expert in all things  mac and cheese.  In spite of that, I’m not ashamed to say that usually, the good ol’ Kraft Macaroni and Cheese tastes a heck of  a lot better than the fancy-shmancy stuff.  There’s something to […]
