My new pandemic toy – an electric smoker!! Not quite as big as my last one (the RV), but super cool and this one was free!! A neighbor was doing some spring cleaning and just didn’t want it anymore, never really used it, and I was like, um, sure I’ll take a smoker!! It fit … More Smokin’ It!!
I wanted to get a couple trips under my belt before I wrote on here about my new toy, just in case I didn’t like it. Well, I don’t like it…I love it!!! I spent a couple weeks intensely researching Class B RVs, which are essentially cargo vans converted into awesome mini-homes!! My research led … More “Go”-ing by RV!
As you know, I love repurposing leftovers and oftentimes they come out even better then the first dish. The other night, I had a good bit of leftover grilled chicken. This was the first dish – nicely grilled chicken quarters with grilled peppers, shrooms and tomatoes and it was delish. But the next show was … More Grilled Chicken Tacos
Ok, so it was a little while ago that I made this, but I only just now realized I hadn’t written about it here! I did post about it on Instagram, I hope you’re catching me on there too because I post so much more @eatdrinkandgo on there just for speed! Anyhoo, my zucchini overflowed … More Zucchini Lasagna!
Most of my cooking is on the healthier side, but I splurged last night on a kicked up meatball sub because I had leftover ground bison and just couldn’t resist!! I bought some big crusty sub rolls (the carb loaded part of this meal that I usually omit) and went to town on them. I … More Bison Meatball Subs!
We’ve all gone stir crazy, to varying degrees, during these challenging times. I am fortunate to have been able to get in a vacation and get the family away in a safe manner, and I hope you can do so as well. Here’s a bit about our trip!! We had to cancel so many things … More Vacation During COVID Times
Does is get more tradish that pairing a hearty steak with a bold red? Well, I kept with tradition last night. I hope you are all trying your hand at impressing yourself with fabulous dishes during this time. I sure am!! I haven’t been eating much red meat lately, but I was really feeling like … More Perfect Pairing: Steak and Wine
Grocery shopping is something I normally love to do – perusing the selections, picking out the perfect produce, selecting the exact cut of meat, contemplating what to make with them, and just being immersed in foods and ideas. But lately it’s been tough. It’s anxiety-ridden, it’s different, and nothing about it feels good since the … More Fine Dining In: Seared Duck Breast
If you’re like me, you love cooking, creating, and playing in the kitchen. But if you’re feeling like I’m feeling these days while staying safe at home, it’s tough coming up with new ideas every night after this much time. So I was recently craving sushi and remembered my mom and I used to make … More Sushi Made at Home!
I have been incredibly derelict in my blogging about cooking, drinking, and otherwise surviving COVID, though I have been putting up a lot of captioned pics on Instagram, so hopefully you check me out on there too. I’ve made many good dishes, some great cocktails, and remain committed to eating and drinking well during this … More Cooking through Quarantine – a satisfying Thai peanut stir fry!
