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 & Culinary Tour

How to Cook a New Years Eve Dinner

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...
