Meal Kit Delivery Services: The Basics

It started thousands of years ago with the first Roman decided to call up his local pizza shop and have a pie delivered vs walking down the street to the restaurant. I sure he thought, “Image that, I can sit around the villa, comfortably in my toga and sandals, and have fresh, restaurant quality...

Are Meal Delivery Kits Healthy?

One of the biggest reasons I hear for people trying meal kit services like Blue Apron and Plated is that they want to eat healthier. That then begs the question….are they really healthier than shopping and cooking on your own. The honest, but perhaps unsatisfying answer is: It depends. It should be...

Soup - The Key to Winter Survival

In the deep depth of Winter, when the snow is deep, and the winds chilly, I find myself taking solace all too frequently in a warm bowl of soup. There are literally thousands of soup recipes, some complex, but many more, so simple they can made is just 30 or so minutes. And of course, so flavorful...

My Walk Home - Week 6: Fallon, NV

So…things have been a bit busy, and I haven’t gotten to posting my progress recently…it’s been a three week gap for those counting…but rest assured, I continue to walk.

My Walk Home - Week 2: Are You a Valley Hater?

I ended the second week of my cross country trek in Pleasanton, CA; the home of football legend John Madden, and the place named the "wealthiest mid-sized town in the USA" per the 2010 census…I'm sure in no small part to the presence of John Madden….

My Walk Home - Week 1: San Bruno CA

My official start date for my "Walk across the Country" was Thursday January 9th. That left only 3 days of walking for my first week...which is a bummer, but FitBit tracks Sunday - Saturday, and I'm not doing any extra math! So far so good, as right now, I've convinced myself there's no need to...

My Walk Home & Culinary Tour

I’m no marathon runner. I blew out my knee while skiing about 20 years ago. It’s full of screws and aches whenever there’s a storm front moving in, or I stand too close to the microwave. My back is really more a collection of knots, than actual muscle & sinew. Every morning, my body and my mind...

Every New Years Eve my wife & I host a dinner party for several of our friends. It’s a tradition that started almost a decade ago, as we began to find restaurants and bars too crowded, with the food sub-par and drinks hard to get. Sense that first party, I’ve learned a lot about making the...
