This is the first time I actually made homemade ice cream. Of course I had the help of my kids and wife. It tasted great–although my diet only allowed a taste. When is the last time you made homemade ice cream? Any recipes, ideas or stories to share about it?
What do you do when you are 20 years of age, a male and working in an office where you are the only one of your gender? Add to the question the fact that it is the office potluck this week and you have to fully participate or else. It […]
Are you like me and have at least this many choices for hot sauce in your pantry? Or, do you shy from the spice?
My kids and I made handmade, homemade pasta for Mother’s Day dinner. Well, I did use the pasta machine seen in the photo. That pasta machine has been moved thousands of miles and managed to stay in the bottom of a box or the back of a cupboard for years. […]
I put this pic up on twitter last night. What do you do with chicken breast when you are bored of stir-frys and BBQ? How about faking Chicken Cordon Blue using bacon and cheddar stuffed inside a rolled breast. Yeah, I do cook sometimes. What is your fave surprise improvised […]
Yes, some of us Christians love beer, good music, and Jesus. If you don’t, that’s fine with me–except for not liking good music. The pint that you see here is a black and tan. “Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.” -Benjamin Franklin What’s your […]
I loved spending the afternoon at the Oceanside Pier with the family and friends Matt and Amy. The Italian Ice stand near the pier’s entrance was amazing. The owner with the fun shirt made the experience all that much better. What is your favorite beachside food stand?
The other day I enjoyed this drink called espresso con panna (with cream whipped). I have a cool whipping cream device that charges cream and so it is fresh. Just a bit of sugar. What is your favorite coffee drink?
The other day my wife and I enjoyed homemade lattes and these scones a friend makes for her business. The scones are amazing and the “mock Devonshire” cream and jam make them go down famously. The coffee was made with our espresso machine. I am not an expert at frothing […]
It is indeed all about the foam. You gotta love a good cappuccino. I like to make my own–like this one pictured here from this morning. If I am at Starbucks, the best to order is the short. And… make it on the dry side. Any of you out there […]
I think cooking truly is a manly thing. My dad loved to cook when he could and the few dished he knew he did with flair. My brothers cook. Of course my mom is amazing, too. But, I think us guys have to realize how manly cooking really is. We […]
You can make a good cup of coffee many ways. If you already own an inexpensive drip that has been your old faithful standby, try putting a metal filter in it. Even Target and Walmart stock these. You will be able to savor the oils from the beans and make […]
