Atta girl Carissa!!!
Here is where I'll be sharing my latest thoughts, rants, goings on and food stuff from my travels.
It might be just visual or textual... humorous or profound… technical or novice-like (I'm not professing to be the greatest writer) but with my food storytelling, I hope to share the importance of cooking with your family.

The grilling season is upon us and this long weekend is the perfect time to enjoy a slower pace and cook with your fam and friends.
Here's my top recipe picks...
You know I love Mexican food! I have experimented with many recipes over the years, so if you are looking for inspiration, you should have more than enough to choose from this Cinco de Mayo, just take a look.
Indulge and make a bunch of these!
Check out my Irish inspired recipes to get ahead of the game for this St. Patrick's Day, Saturday March 17th 2018. All easy, hearty dishes, make a couple for dinner... of make em all, if you are having a party!
But first... go pour that glass of Guinness!
Perfect to feed a big hungry mob for St. Pat's Day. But, whether you are Irish... or whatever you are, you have to make this, it's the ultimate comfort food and easy family meal pleaser.
This is just a guide – you can add almost anything to mashed potatoes – goat cheese, sour cream, bits of roast beef, bacon & blue cheese, rice pudding, quickly sauted vegetables, crunchy rice noodles – by the way I was just kidding about the rice pudding.
For some reason, corned beef is usually only thought of at home for St. Patrick’s Day, which is a crying shame. This has only five ingredients, is a snap to make, and the glaze really adds a ton of flavor. Make yourself a promise to make it more often. You’ll be so glad you did.
Here's some of my favorite things from 2017, all featured on the Sam The Cooking Guy Online (STCGO) show.

Here's a bunch a stuff perfect for Halloween night, or some ideas to make with all the leftovers.
The key is to make a bunch of it. Then let it be the casual, comfort-food center of a trick or treat ‘door answering’ party...
So after consuming all that candy, it might be time for something slightly healthier. Here’s my suggestion for a build-your-own Quesadilla party. Kids love-making things themselves, so you simply put everything out and let them put it together the way they want – but you do the cooking.
Put out a variety of fillings and let the kids build their own Quesadillas. The choices can include:
How to make?
It’s time I did some viewer recipes! So send anything you’d like to share (no matter how odd).

A great burger.
Any good steak.
Here's a few on my top choices:
This weekend I'm celebrating Summer by spending some quality time with my Brisket....
Becuz it's a pellet smoker I don't need to stay up and feed it wood... but I can't leave. Enjoying the late night cool air.

Genius? Aw shucks, why'd you have to go and embarrass me by saying that?
Yes, yes, but how last will it last, if you don't have something tasty and filling! So, let's keep that momentum going, for at least January... Feb... hey, perhaps permanently. Start with these super delicious easy nutritious recipes.
Cocktails and nibbles my favorite combination. Make something different this year, try some of these:
