Gobble Gobble

I wanted to call this post “An almost 4-year-old and a 40 something year old tackle a turkey”, but I thought that might be a little too long, so I just went with “Gobble Gobble.” Thanksgiving is right around the corner, so I thought this would be an appropriate time to show you how we… Continue reading Gobble Gobble

Chicken Fried Rice on the Blackstone

I was looking for a quick weeknight dinner recipe that incorporated the Blackstone since its now back in the rotation. It occurred to me that chicken fried rice would be perfect. I probably should have/could have looked for recipes online (and I will in the future), but I remembered that I had used this stuff… Continue reading Chicken Fried Rice on the Blackstone

Restoring the Blackstone

Just a little over two years ago, we added a Blacktone griddle to our outdoor cooking arsenal. It got some use and then winter came along and it sat unused. And then forgotten. Abandoned and lonely. Even though I had a cover for it, it started to rust. I knew I had to reseason it,… Continue reading Restoring the Blackstone

Lil Pizza Party

Saturday night we had my cousin, his wife and two of the kids over to hang out, have a few drinks and enjoy football season. It’s always fun to hang out with them, but sometimes its challenging trying to figure out what to cook as he’s a vegetarian. I decided that we would have a pizza… Continue reading Lil Pizza Party

Almost the same thing, minus the sauce. And different dough as we use Pilsbury Cresents instead of pizza… Continue reading Pizza Rolls Take 2

BBQ Chicken Bacon Ranch Casserole

I’m always looking for ideas of things to cook that Duke will actually eat other than hotdogs, corndogs or chicken nuggets. Last week, I somehow stumbled on a recipe for Chicken Bacon Ranch Casserole on a site called Damn Delicious. Duke likes chicken. And bacon. And ranch. And pasta. For sure he’d like this. Of course… Continue reading BBQ Chicken Bacon Ranch Casserole

Czech Out My Pilsner

For my second lager, I decided to go with the Czech (or Bohemian) Lager from Brewing Classic Styles. The Czech’s invented the Pilsner style of beer in Plzn, Czech Republic in 1842. It was called Pilsner Urquell and it is still around to this day. Since my wife is part Czech, I decided that this would be my… Continue reading Czech Out My Pilsner
