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.

How We Make Chimichurri

  There are thousands of recipes for chimichurri out there. Many claiming to be “original” or “authentic” and then some that have been modernized with all kinds of extra ingredients.

Just an Update

We’re still here. Still kicking. Been real busy at work, short staffed, working lots of weekends so I haven’t been posting much. That’s all about to end soon…hopefully. Anyway, got home from work and had a package waiting for me. A Kick Ash Basket. Heard a lot of hype about it. Can’t wait to try it… Continue reading Just an Update

Wife’s away…

…so I’ve been cooking up the stuff that’s not on her diet…which makes it not on mine. Funny how marriage works that way. Started off with a pizza on Friday. Three cheese and pepperoni and salami. My usual dough recipe, Egg setup (Bge stone on top of the AR) and temp, but for some reason it… Continue reading Wife’s away…
