Whenever I have a ton of left overs and I want to clear out the fridge I try to find something new and exciting to try. I love eggs and they go with almost any flavor. You can make them sweet in desserts or savory in a quiche. So I wanted to use eggs and [...]

I purchased a bunch of bananas last week. That was before I realized how long I was going to be gone for Memphis. I ended up being in Memphis for 5+ days. So when I came back, I had a bunch of extremely ripe bananas. So I decided to make some banana bread. I love [...]
Every Wednesday I review a cookbook to help weed out the good the bad and the ugly. This week I am reviewing The Art & Soul of Baking by Cindy Mushet. I love baking. I guess it is the engineer in me that loves the precise measurements and the ability to use cool cooking tools. [...]
The other day I went to the store and blueberries were on sale. I love blueberries. As a kid I would always go pick blueberries with my mother and siblings. It was fun because you could eat as many blueberries as you wanted while you picked. I would always come home with purlish/blue hands. So [...]

I have been looking for a good recipe for soft hot dog buns. After looking around on the internet I found one at allrecipes.com that looked promising. As you can see the buns come out nice and golden brown.
When I was 18, I got a job bartending at the Nickerson Inn in Pentwater Michigan. It was a great place. Great food and a relaxed atmosphere that is missing from modern restaurants. If you had the opportunity to eat and/or stay there before it burned down in 2007, well you were lucky. Along with being [...]
Ahh the elusive 10 minute pizza. I love homemade pizza but it just takes too long to make for the average individual. Dough usually needs to be rested, proofed, and formed usually taking up to and over 2 hours. Below I tried a recipe based on a recipe from Cooks.com for a 5 minute pizza [...]
