Delicious Egg Dish

This recipe is a favorite in my house, even with my egg hating wife. As usual, feel free to substitute ingredients and make this your own recipe. Serrano ham or Canadian bacon would be great instead the pancetta this version calls for. Start by cutting some fairly thick slices of crusty bread. Brush with olive oil. I usually use a garlic infused oil, as I tend to always have some chopped garlic soaking in olive […]

New Wine Discussion Forums

Our friend Mark over at Must Love Wine has added wine discussion forums to his site, and they are off to a good start. Most wine forums are dominated by folks who seem more eager to show off the 98 point wine they scored than to help a novice wine drinker or have actual conversations.

Hurricane Edouard is heading for my front door

According to the National Weather Service’s path projection, I can expect Hurricane Edouard to make a bee line to my front door around 6 or 7 a.m. tomorrow morning. This will be my first time riding one out. We tucked our tails between our legs and ran during Rita, and I was at the beach surfing on Katrina’s waves as it passed us by. It is kind of scary and sort of exciting waiting for […]

This is how they describe the goals of their site: BRITT LOVETT + TALIA LESAK (hello) believe that FOOD and DRINK keep us alive – spiritually as well as physically. We started this website […]

Bennigan’s Closing – Who Gives a $#@&?

That was my initial reaction to the news that Bennigan’s was closing 300 of its eponymous dumps along with some Steak and Ales, as well. If I could close all of the mediocre crap chain restaurants in this country, I would do it in a heartbeat. Then I started to think about all of the poor folks who will be losing their job. This led to a contemplation of the sorry state of this country […]

Delicious, Healthy Salad Dressing Recipe

Between the heat and trying to eat in healthier ways, I have been making and eating a lot of salads. Mostly created with spinach and/or arugula. Today a co-worker and I were talking about salads and I mentioned that I make my own dressings to keep calories down while accentuating flavor and healthiness. There are many ways to create variations on this basic recipe. Vary the herbs, the amounts, or the type of acid and […]
