Winter doesn’t officially arrive for about 3 more weeks, but you could’ve fooled me. It’s cold out there. Like “sweatshirt in the house” kind of cold. (Heck, even my dogs are wearing their sweatshirts today!) When winter rolls in, I begin craving comfort food. And red wine. And re-runs of Game of Thrones and Law and Order: SVU. Yup, that’s how we roll in the winter in upstate New York! (Although my wife and I did join a curling club this year to give us a reason to get out of the house on the weekends.)Continue Reading »
This Tomato Grilled Cheese Soup is what happens when tomato soup meets a grilled cheese sandwich. It’s the ultimate comfort food, and it’s guaranteed to warm you up on a cold winter day!
There’s something about cold weather and grilled cheese sandwiches. They just go together like cupcakes and frosting…or Nintendo and the 1980’s…or the 1980’s and Devo…or the 1980’s and anything awesome.

I mean, c’mon, the man gets a glass of milk and a plate of cookies at every stop he makes. I don’t have a PhD in Math, but even I know that’s a lot of cookies. Continue Reading »
These Carnitas Tacos are slow-cooked to perfection.
They’re an easy recipe that’s perfect to make on a chilly weekend!
Can we talk easy food for a minute? As a food blogger, I spend a lot of time in the kitchen…and I absolutely love testing recipes! Tweak this for the next time. Add that for the next batch. Good thing for me is that my wife loves to cook, too. Thanksgiving is just around the corner, and I’m certain that we will cook a full Turkey Day feast here. (Never mind the fact that it’s just the two of us…but then again, Thanksgiving leftovers are the best part, right??) Despite our passion for cooking and baking, sometimes we like to take it easy.
