How Long Can You Store Your Frozen Food?

I live with an untrained health food inspector. Really. Or at least that’s how it feels sometimes when my wife and I have conversations around how long has <insert food item> been in the freezer? Plus we have debates about how long after a “best buy” date can you still eat something. Fortunately, Freezer Labels […]

I am on Day 30 of trying to complete 30 Days of Vegetarian eating. This was lunch. Meaning I only technically have one meal – dinner – and possibly an evening snack to go before I can successfully say I did 30 days with zero meat. So to not bury the lead, that is why I’m […]

Reviewing Six Meal Delivery Services Including Blue Apron, Plated, Sun Basket, Gobble, Green Chef and The Purple Carrot

I’ve Joined the Dad Spotlight Podcast to Talk Food

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. […]
