Spicy Curry Butternut Squash

by Matt on December 9, 2011

I’m not going to do that apology thing that us bloggers usually do. You know what I mean (because I’ve done it a million times before):  “So sorry I haven’t written/blogged/posted! I’ve been so inundated with work/family/my book/intergalactic atomic particle transportation/etc.” No, I’m not going to say that. I am going to own up to [...]

Talkin’ Turkey!

by Matt on November 18, 2011

Zucchini Pasta & the inbetweeness of it all

by Matt on September 16, 2011

This is the first time in my life that I won’t be kicking and screaming for summer to stay just a bit longer. Not that I want it to go, mind you, I’m just happy to see the seasons do their thang, the earth to change notches such a tiny bit. The days are already [...]

NYC and a Sandwich

by Matt on September 7, 2011

Hi folks! Just back from a super quick trip to New York City where we ate way too much food and slept way too little. As always it was a jam-packed few days as we said goodbye to this guy who just recently moved to California. Their loss is our gain! It was fantastic to [...]

by Matt on April 14, 2011

I would like to tell you how much I love my job. I love it thissssssssssssssssssssssssssssss much. Why?

  I would love to take a moment to review The Sriracha Cookbook that arrived last January. I would also like to take a moment to tell you how much I love the book. But I can’t. I won’t. Why? Because I’m too busy stuffing my face with this recipe. Let’s say this will be [...]

Or the Uncondensed Title: Green Chile, Parmesan and Black Pepper Buttermilk Biscuits with Chorizo & Chipotle Gravy. Whew! While I can overeat with the best of them, a Hearty Breakfast Boy I am not. It slows me down and makes me feel sluggish which is why I usually stick to a banana and some peanut [...]

Chipotle Chilaquiles

by Matt on January 31, 2011

This is the breakfast I’d eat every day if I could. Oh chilaquiles, how much do I love you? Apparently quite a bit, as I’ve been on the Chilaquiles Train ever since getting back from Mexico earlier this month. While I’ve always enjoyed them, I’ve renewed my love by eating them a few times a [...]

Power Foods

by Matt on January 25, 2011

You’d never know by looking at my chubby exterior, but during the week we focus on a variety of healthy meals at home in an effort to balance the overindulgence, tastings, and big dinners that usually fill our weekends. And even if it weren’t for this health focus, if anything it’s to give my palate [...]
