Finally Bought a Decent Slicer

I usually cook at my day job, I’m technically the IT Manager/Web Developer. Some how, usually during the interview process, they find out that I previously was  a chef for 20 years.

Woah!! It’s Been Two Frikin’ Weeks

Just realized it’s been two weeks since my last recipe post. I was going to get something done this past weekend, but I got a wicked chest cold. I know, I know there like but holes and they all stink. I’m still going to try for a video. I’ll have to use my digital camera. […]

Going to visit with Mom today, and then my son and I are going to to the Police/Elvis Costello concert this evening. So no recipe today. How about a couple funny images I ran across on the internet this past week. Wonder why this never took off? Looks like the Swedish Chef is up to […]
