Garlic Basil Chicken with Tomato Sauce

IMG_4287

I love a simple recipe. By simple I mean two key things, simple ingredients and simple to make. This dish I found on Pinterest on the Pinch of Yum blog met both criteria and is sure to be a go to recipe. You could make this dish with your favorite jarred sauce; though, I’d follow the […]

A friend of mine posted on Facebook if any of her friends used services like Blue Apron. I had been considering it for sometime, but just never took the next step of committing to an order. With some renewed curiosity, I decided now was the time to look into a meal delivery service. What I […]

I’ve Joined the Dad Spotlight Podcast to Talk Food

DadSpotlighthomepage

I’ve been writing about food since 2009 on this blog and even earlier with my former Detroit Eats website back in 1997.  I haven’t done much with video or audio when it comes to food, but that is changing as I am going to make some appearances on the Podcast Dad Spotlight starting this month. […]

Raising My Kids to Ignore the Hate

1930366_667961038583_1977_n

I’m a child of the 80s. It was the age of Aqua Net, Z Cavaricci, and Doc Martins — sometimes all on the same day. I wore polka dot dress shirts, crimped my hair, and wore eyeliner (even if it was just once at a nightclub.) Being a kid who was more interested in music […]

Lasagna

Growing up with an Italian mother, well 3/4 Italian and 1/4 French, made for some pretty amazing meals that a young boy never could truly appreciate. However, there was one dish my mom was famous for: Lasagna. It was a staple of the holidays at our home. She definitely took a lot of pride making […]

One-Pot Creamy Spinach and Lentils

IMG_4020

Lentils are a personal favorite in my vegan and vegetarian cooking. I tend to save a lot of recipes that use them on my Pinterest Mostly Vegetarian board (you can follow me on Pinterest here.) A recent save is this lentil and spinach dish I made last week. It’s pretty easy to prepare and can […]

All Things Must Pass, Except My Love for Music

IMG_3117

Last Thursday night was pretty special. The original Los Angeles Sunset Avenue Tower Records location was brought back to life for one evening of music to celebrate the release of All Things Must Pass a new documentary from director Colin Hanks. I remember going here in the late 80s and early 90s; though, I spent more […]

Steak Diane

Steak Diane is one of my favorite stop top steak dishes. I love it so much I have another recipe on the website I did back in 2011 (check it out here.) This version doesn’t use cream, but it does use a lot of butter.  You can also remove the mushrooms in this version, but […]

Crockpot Apple Cider Beef Stew

IMG_4040

With temperatures staying in the 90s, and mostly high 90s, this October it really isn’t feeling like Fall yet.  So, I’ve decided to have Pinterest bring Fall to me. I bought some fresh squeezed apple cider from Whole Foods last Sunday and wanted to use it in a rich, flavorful stew. After a few searches, […]
