Slow Cooker Loaded Bratwurst Stew

Slow Cooker Bratwurst Stew

My comic shop is located in a college town. It makes for a diverse customer base from our long term locals to the passing through collector. But for the past few weeks we have had an onslaught of atypical purchases – a wide variety of students – because they have an assignment in which they have to read a comic and assess if the rating on the cover is appropriate for the content within the pages. I really wish I could read a few of these papers when all this is said and done. Seeing as we have had an influx of […]

Slow Cooker Asian Sliders with Slaw

Slow Cooker Asian Sliders

Every now and again it’s good to humble yourself by totally making an ass of yourself live over the internet to be forever broadcast over Youtube. Only every now and then. Which is exactly what I did last week as part of the G+ Food Bloggers Community #superbowlplus Week of Champions. First, the Google communities are great and are growing rapidly. As all things with Google, there isn’t much you can’t find on there being discussed and chronicled. But if you should want to host a Hangout you should totally be more prepared then I was or at least bother watching this […]

Smothered Pork Chops with Smashed Potatoes

Smothered_chops_0099

Need a quick meal to get some food in your tummy before the impending sugar rush of the Trick or Treat haul? Yeah, me too. There is a giant bag of mini chocolate goodness that looks like it wont be given out this year due to the crappy weather just calling my name. So before I go all fat kid on that, I figured I should get something remotely healthy in my system. This weeknight quicky meal comes together with just a few pots and pans and doesn’t disappoint  The addition to cabbage slaw to the smashed potatoes makes for a […]

Cabbage_skillet_0229

Remember the age old rule, always wear clean underwear? Yeah, here’s why.   If you are going to chase after kids that were stupid enough to throw eggs at houses at only 9pm, make sure that 1) you are wearing shoes and 2) a bra would be nice too. It’s hard to be mean with your arms folded across your chest, and not in a pissed off way but in a, ‘wow this is super indecent’ sort of way.Also, don’t let your boyfriend lock your barefoot and bra-less ass out of your house so when the cops stop by, you can’t even […]

Grilled Tuna Steaks with Asian Slaw

It’s been almost a year since we purchased our mountain bikes and headed out for the trails. A year ago, every time Handsome wanted to ride, I would whine to myself internally and barely pull myself along the trails. I was exhausted. I felt horrible. I wanted to quit. Saturday evening the weather was bordering on beautiful or packed with the thick hot summertime thunderstorms and Handsome a bad day at work. Seeing the clouds moving passed us, I loaded my bike into the truck and headed out for a ride all by myself. Looking up half way through the trail and […]

Corned Beef and Cabbage

I thought for sure that I would be able to use the last week to catch up on some reading. For those who may not be regulars here, I had my wisdom teeth pulled, and was kind of looking forward to a few days ‘vacation’ from normal duties. But now I feel like I owe everyone a huge apology. A blogging friend of mine asked how I manage my time the other day. Between cooking and getting the posts up (not to mention the dishes) food blogging can take up a large chunk of time. She asked how I returned […]
