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 […]

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 […]

What’s up with these people that eat like cavemen, pay 1 billion dollars per month on their gym memberships, and have super human strength? Dude. Your muscles have muscles. I’ve tried crossfit- and […]

Carbs, pork… are other words necessary?

So the last two posts have been relatively healthy and completely vegetarian. Given that fact, I feel it’s my duty as your friend, and favorite blogger (yea, I went ahead and made that assumption), to make you something with pork and carbs. You’re welcome. There’s something to be said for a warm, red, meat sauce; […]

Soubise Salmon and Spicy Wilty Greens

Let me tell you about a little thing called Soubise sauce.  Have you ever heard of it?  Well if you hadn’t- you have now, and you’re very welcome. There’s really a sauce hierarchy in my life.  In my world tomato-based sauces are the lowest on the totem pole, probably because they’re usually the healthiest option… […]

She’s beautiful, smart, fun, AND a chef! Oh hey there, Bestie ;)

You know those people that are incredibly smart, successful, beautiful, responsible, witty, great in the kitchen, and even better friends/sisters/wives, etc.?  You hate them, right?  Me too.  My bestie is the exception to the rule: Amanda.  She’s way too amazing, cool and loyal to hate, so I made her my best friend instead.  I scored […]
