March Madness

March Madness. Hmm…Is there really such as thing a just one month of madness? Isn’t every month madness in your house? Isn’t it? Isn’t it? (please say yes). People talk about brackets this, brackets that. The only brackets going on in my house look like this: Again, I stick with my previous Super Bowl post theme: […]

Superbowl! Mack Daddy of SNACKS!

Is there really a reason to read this post? No. Why? Because we’re all gearing up for the best SNACK DAY of the entire year. Superbowl. The day where you can wake up and down spinach dip for breakfast, follow it with a swig of beer, chase that beer with some sort of cheese puff […]

Rise Up! Roll Up!

Rise Up. I just like saying that. I don’t know what it means as it relates to the game. In fact, I don’t know a lick about football. I barely know who’s playing in today’s playoff game but I’ll be damned if I’m the only one who doesn’t have the cute gear. So I’ll make this […]

Back to Reality…Spinach Artichoke Dip

There’s nothing that’ll catapult you back to reality after the holidays more than this: All that time and energy spent picking out just the right tree, carefully placing it in the perfect spot in your home, hand picking ornaments, coordinating wrapping paper and ribbons, for what? Just to be tossed out in the street like […]

Whine Pairings…Stuffed Mushrooms

I love going to fine restaurants where food is paired with the perfect wine. There’s just something about having a professional direct your alcoholic intake that’s so sophisticated. Makes the food taste better and makes me feel smart. For instance, a white flaky fish baked with capers, lemon and bread crumbs is delightful (there goes […]

Lessons from the Dog Park…Chinese Chicken Wings

Took my second trip to the dog park last weekend. Amazing place that dog park. Made me think the world would be a much easier place to navigate if we were able to judge someone’s character simply by sniffing butts. I’m not kidding. Seriously, even if you’re not a dog person, go to a dog […]

Totally Tubular Super Bowl Snacks

Have you seen the Ferris Bueller Super Bowl commercial yet? It’s only on everyone’s Facebook page like they’re the first to discover it…but if you haven’t, go ahead and take a look here. Well? Whaddya think? Pretty choice, huh? I heard Jerry Seinfeld is also doing a Super Bowl commercial with the Soup Nazi. And Madonna’s […]

Retail Therapy…Spinach and Cheese Nachos

I’ve definitely found my match in the form of an 11-year-old. She’s all sassy and competitive and persistent and up early and determined and relentless and god I want to kill her most of the time. And well, I guess I’m kind of the same. Minus the sassy and god people want to kill me […]

Mack Daddy of Chaos

*disclaimer* The following comments may or may not pertain to me. Thanksgiving. You can’t avoid it. It’s coming. In two days. And whether you love it or hate it, whether it brings together people you love or people you loathe, there’s one thing that rings true for all. It could possibly be the culmination of […]

My Apologies for Yesterday’s Post…Bruchetta

It was just so wrong of me to leave that last post up for so long. The ‘incident’ with the Windex and the shoes really threw me for a loop . My apologies. There is no place for bugs in a food blog. So it won’t happen again. But I don’t have much to say […]
