Back in April, I was spotlighted by The Nosher (thanks guys!) and I shared a recipe for a roasted eggplant dip. I remember the interview clearly; I enjoyed talking to Shannon and talking about everything from healthy eating to Kansas City BBQ. What I didn’t remember, was that I took all the photos to share my...

About a week ago, I was itching for meatloaf.  My wife hates meatloaf, and I love it.  At least that’s how we remember it going.  I did some research, picked a recipe, added my own touch and made meatloaf with a side of sweet potato fries.  My wife loved it, but I really didn’t.  Something...

Where are you from?  For many, that’s a pretty simple question.  If you’re anything like me and have held more than a dozen “permanent” addresses before the age of 30, you’ll stumble to find the answer. I tend to tell people I am from Brighton.  It’s a beautiful place to call home, located on England’s...

Have you been wondering where I have been?  This summer sucked the blogging out of me! When school’s out, the schedule changes.  Same too for having a new baby.  Both at the same time?  I’m juggling! My wife is a master when it comes to planning days out and making sure the kids have fun activities...
