Turn one of your favorite dips into an entree with this tasty Spinach Artichoke Tart!What is your one go-to recipe?  You know the recipe I mean.  It’s the recipe you pull out when you find out your husband’s boss is coming over for dinner.  You’ve made it 1,000 times.  (Ok, maybe not 1,000…but you still almost know the recipe by heart.)  You know it’ll taste awesome.  You know it’ll impress your family or guests.  If you’re anything like me, then you probably have a handful of recipes that could fit this description.  But one of my favorites is a savory artichoke and asiago cheese tart.Continue Reading »

Roasted Cauliflower Soup

Seasoned with curry powder and cumin, a hot bowl of this Roasted Cauliflower Soup is the perfect lunch on chilly spring day!

Seasoned with curry powder and cumin, a hot bowl of this Roasted Cauliflower Soup is the perfect lunch on cold winter day!A couple of weeks ago, my wife went out of town on a work trip.  Now I love having her here, but there is something totally awesome about having the house all to yourself for a few days, too.  Tell me you know the feeling!  I was tempted to sit in the basement and play video games all day…but nope, I used that quiet time to get some work done.  I know, I know.  All work and no play makes David boring.  I guess I was a bit boring for those couple of days…although I did wander out for a late-night curling game one night.  That counts, right?Continue Reading »

Roasted Poblano Mac and Cheese

Forget boring mac and cheese!
Make dinner exciting with this Roasted Poblano Mac and Cheese!

Forget boring mac and cheese! Make dinner exciting with this Roasted Poblano Mac and Cheese!One of the coolest things about living in upstate New York is the awesome summer weather.  Of course, I say that as it is currently quite chilly outside, and a warm summer day feels like a world away.  Once the weather starts turning warm-ish, we wander out of the house (sans winter coats, I might add) and start soaking in the rays.  As soon as spring begins to think about arriving, we always end up heading up to Saratoga Springs to wander the streets.  If you’ve never visited Saratoga Springs, then put it on your to-visit list!  It’s a quaint town with tons of charm, good shops, tasty restaurants and of course the racetrack.Continue Reading »

Stuffed with cheese and then topped with more cheese, these Triple Cheddar Bacon Sliders are the perfect snack to serve during the big game!Back in 2002, I was named Most Enthusiastic College Basketball Fan in the country. Yes, that’s right.  The whole country.  I was crowned on national television at halftime of the championship game.  I guess I should explain, huh?  Well, I’ve always loved college sports.  From the basketball tournament in March to the baseball tournament in June to the bowl games every December and January, I’m pretty sure my life revolves around college sports.  Most of the time, the season ends with, “Well, there’s always next year…,” but every once in a while the stars align and your team brings home the trophy at the end of the season.Continue Reading »
