Definitely the one on the left! Give me a charcuterie tray any day of the week!

That must be some damn good pie!

I typically go with beef, but these chicken nachos look amazing!

How fast do you want it eaten? Leave it my house and it will be gone in a weekend!

I have to admit, some days a quick avocado toast is just what I need for breakfast. Especially, with the perfect seasonings!

Have I told you about my potentially unhealthy love of carrot cake? I mean, it has carrots in it, so it's a little good for you right?

I really like this idea. It's an easy way to make a good appetizer for a party and something a little more upscale than say, chips.

There are no three flavors that were more meant to be together than chicken, lemon, and rosemary.

Sounds like a great way to spend time with family to me!

Thanksgiving is upon us and one of my favorite flavors is pumpkin! Not pumpkin spice, just pumpkin!

This makes me want to go to Seoul now!

Can't resist these! Almond rolls are amazing!

I love a good sausage! Whenever there is a butcher that makes his own, I have to stop and try some!

I haven't fully embraced the current trend of air fryers, not sure that I will. I'm old school and I like things a certain way. Either way, these Air Fryer Chicken Legs look pretty good!

What's not to love about tacos? I'm just this wasn't a #tacotuesday post!

I normally do a dry rub on steaks, but a good marinade is worth its salt. Just may have to give this one a whirl.

One thing I cannot resist is a soft chocolate chip cookie. I hate it when they are over crispy!

I'm the opposite. I should train hard because of how hard I eat!

Remember when you got older as a child and Disney movies were no longer cool? And then suddenly they came back. I feel the same way about grilled cheese!

Radicchio, Pear, and Blue Cheese Salad

Radicchio Pear Blue Cheese Salad
Radicchio, Pear, and Blue Cheese Salad
This inspiration for this recipe comes from two different places. First, when I was in college, I used to make a Radicchio and Endive salad. I can't find endive at HEB no matter how hard I look, so i don't make that one anymore. The second is from Thanksgiving when I was about 16 years old. My cousin
brought a blue cheese stuffed pear salad, and I have been obsessed with that flavor combination since. So, I put the two together.

The Recipe:

The Tools:

  • Sharp knife
  • Large Bowl

The Ingredients:

  • 1 Head of Radicchio - Chopped
  • 2 Pears - Sliced or Chopped
  • Blue Cheese Crumbles
  • Salt and Pepper
  • Green Onions - Chopped
  • Olive Oil
  • White Balsamic Vinegar

The Method:

Steak with Blue Cheese Crumbles

First, chop all of the veggies. For the radicchio, I like to cut it into fourths and cut out the white center part. For the pears, I stand the pear up and cut all for sides off around the middle. This is the best way I have found to get the core out of the pear. From there, cut the fourths into slices. For the green onions, I usually cut off just a little bit of the end. Chop the green onions until you use just a little bit of the white part. 

With all of the veggies chopped, combine in a bowl and add the blue cheese. I didn't measure it, but I like blue cheese, so I used a lot. I'll let you decide how much. Season with salt and pepper and drizzle the oil and vinegar on top. 

I paired this with a perfectly grilled steak with blue cheese crumbles on top. 

Happy Eating!

A bahn mi might be the closest thing to heaven we'll get! When I'm in a pinch for a quick bite for lunch, it's definitely my go to. I have a spot not too far from the office.
I've been really in to salads lately. I think it's mostly a guise for healthy eating. 

Did I mention the guise healthy eating? This is what I really want. This is amazing! I grew up on peach cobbler that my grandma made.

This is almost flavor overload for me! The marinated steak, avocado, and everything else! Going to have to make this!

Refrigerator Hash

This recipe is all about using ingredients you already have in the fridge. My wife and kids were out of town for the weekend. Typically, when I have the house to myself for the weekend, I go to the kitchen and create. This weekend was no different! It was morning and I was thinking about a diner style hash or scramble. I found what I was looking for in the fridge, and I was on my way!


The Recipe:

The Tools:

  • Whisk
  • Heavy bottom skillet
  • Medium Sized Bowl

The Ingredients:

  • Frozen Fries
  • 4 Eggs - Scrambled
  • Milk
  • Shredded Cheese - Cheddar or Monterrey Jack
  • Butter
  • Leftover Meat
  • Olive Oil

The Method:

First, some frozen fries, a handful is good, go into the hot skillet with a some olive oil. Let them cook until brown on all sides. Remove and set aside.

I had leftover over BBQ pork in the fridge. I chopped up some pork, maybe a cup, and threw it in the skillet. Remember, the pork was already cooked, so I just wanted to get it warmed up. After a few minutes, it was ready to remove and set aside. 

Now for the eggs. In a medium sized bowl, whisk the for eggs together. Add in a splash of milk and a half cup of shredded cheese. Whisk to combine. Add a few tablespoons of butter to the hot skillet. Once the butter melts, add the egg mixture. As the eggs begin to cook, add in the fries and pork, and sprinkle in some more cheese. Season with salt and pepper. When the eggs are done, you're ready to enjoy breakfast!

To mix it up a little, top everything some pico de gallo, chopped green onions, or BBQ sauce!


Happy Eating!
