This tasty French Dip Sandwich is easier to make than you think...and it makes for one heck of an epic weeknight meal! #MakeItEpicI still remember the trip like it was yesterday.  I was seven years old, and we were taking a family trip back to East Texas to visit my grandparents.  My uncle and aunt were also coming over to spend a few days, and I couldn’t wait for the five-day marathon of puzzles, games and chocolate chip cookies.  Yes, cookies.  (You know the rule: there are no rules at Grandma’s house!)Continue Reading »

Cajun Dirty Rice! #MakeItEpic

Celebrate Mardi Gras and make your weeknight dinner epic with this Cajun Dirty Rice!Do you remember the moment when you first met some of your closest friends?  More often than not, good friendships just develop over time…but it’s still fun to think about the first time you met.  Although my wife and I now live in upstate New York, many of my closest guy friends live way down in south Louisiana.  I lived in Louisiana for several years, and looking back it was a really strange sequence of events that led to me living down there.  (Isn’t it always a strange sequence of events?)Continue Reading »
