food: wings, ’nuff said

So I bought a bunch of wings for the Superbowl, I figured I might watch it or not, but at least I’d have an appropriate snack either way. Since that day was in the 50s, I was out all day...

food: a tasty trilogy

It’s been quite the day today, but sometimes it’s all worth it knowing you’ve got something tasty to come home to. This was truly slow meets fast, as the pulled chicken sat all day in the crock pot while the...

Average Joe, Main Street, Russia… Maverick!

I didn’t even think about it, but last night was pretty themed. I made salmon and apple pies, just like a good Alaskan Maverick Energy-Producing Hockey Mom would! I watched the debate last night even though I was on the...

FoodBeer!

FoodBeer! Ya gotta love it. It’s like watching an old film about or going on a World’s Fair/Epcot tour of The Kitchen of Tomorrow. “No time to stop off at the bar with the fellas after work? Just make sure...
