The Classics: Cinnamon Rolls

I want to start this off by thanking everyone who participated in the giveaway last week! The response was overwhelming and totally humbling. Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment! What's more, you guys didn't just leave one worded messages, but instead gave me all of the details. I loved that! I enjoyed reading them all, because I definitely did take the time to read every single comment, from beginning to end. In fact, it was the highlight of my week, so thank you. It was also the highlight of my mom's week, because she read them all too. I'd get a call from her every hour with, "Jon did you read that one comment?! Awwww, this one comment is great you should pick … [Read More...]

Main Dishes

Shepherd’s Potato Pie

In case you didn't already know, I happen to be a big fan of shepherd's pie and I'm always looking out for new and exciting ways to reinvent this classic dish. Between you and me, I've toyed around with the idea of a handheld portable version, that of which I'm still working on. The concept of eating shepherd's pie on the go just sounds so appealing to me. One day I'll get it right. If you're looking for a more traditional shepherd's pie however—and I use the term "traditional" loosely as I'm … [Read More...]

Spinach, Garlic and Chicken Chardonnay White Pizza

We're beginning to settle into our new place just nicely these days. I'm starting to cook a lot more, once again, and even getting back into the rhythm of creating new recipes for the site. I've been away far too long if you ask me. The very first thing we bought for our new home was a pizza stone, even before we got some of the more important things like a lamp or dining table. I wanted to make sure we had our pizza nights locked in. This is actually the first pizza stone I've ever owned. … [Read More...]

The Classics: Bacon Cheeseburger

Here we are again! The Classics are back; bigger and better than ever! This time around I'm taunting you with this crazy awesome cheeseburger. The cheeseburger to end all cheeseburgers. If you remember correctly, the last classic was this insanely good Buttermilk Fried Chicken, and if for some reason you don't remember, I took the liberty of linking it for you. You can thank me later. I've gone ahead and added bacon to the mix because as I'm sure you've heard, everything is better with … [Read More...]

The Classics: Buttermilk Fried Chicken

I've recently been told by a few people that many of my recipes on the site seem to be a little too demanding or time consuming to make. Some of you have even mentioned that during the week it's impossible to try out the recipes because you have so many other things going on. You've asked for more quick and effortless recipes. I really do appreciate the feedback and have been listening intently because it helps me grow as a food blogger. The main reason why I run this site is so that you try out … [Read More...]

Sausage and Pickled Jalapeño Pizza: An Ode to San Francisco

I was recently in San Francisco for a few days, with my better half and I have to admit that I'm still on vacation mode. It's so hard for me to return from any sort of trip, whether it's a week long or just a day, and get back into the right mindset to work. Does that happen to you guys as well? Please tell me it does, that way I don't feel totally guilty for feeling this way. This laziness to be an adult is hard to shake off, especially after a great getaway. San Francisco … [Read More...]

Fried Green Tomato and Shrimp Sliders

I'm on a mission in life to become the Slider King of America. I don't really know if that's an actual thing, but it sounds really cool. I can totally see myself being King of the Sliders, too. It's definitely not a bad thing to have on my resume. If anything, it'll make me well known by millions, right? At the very least, it'll grant me some free sliders whenever I want. Which is always. Sliders everyday of my life sounds even better than being king. Don't get me wrong, I still want to be king. … [Read More...]
