Dads Like It Hot…and Spicy!

Contests, EAT, eat, family meals, holidays By June 7, 2016 Tags: , , , , 20 Comments

Dads are hot. Yes, you read that right.

DADS. ARE. HOT!

And they also like hot things. And cool things, because they’re also kind of cool.

It’s pretty commonly accepted around town that husbands and dads aren’t the bomb-diggity anymore and single guys have all the game. But, a man who can be an amazing life partner, help his little girls play softball, teach his son how to drive, and cook us all an amazing dinner—I’m telling you, that is the real definition of hot.

Tips for Cooking With Kids

EAT, FAM, LIVE By January 29, 2016 Tags: , , No Comments

As a mom of four littles, I often have to navigate the kitchen with care. While we have a nice kitchen, it’s not quite big enough to handle 4 extra bodies that don’t yet know how to control themselves. Most of the help they offer comes in the form of dumping cups of flour or stirring the contents of a bowl for me, which is nice if you can let go of the mess that inevitably occurs. My 9 year old has been asking for a bit more of a lesson in the kitchen recently. She wants to learn how to make a few of her favorite meals on her own. Who am I to turn down such an opportunity?

Making Stock

EAT, family meals By December 26, 2009 Tags: , , 1 Comment

Too many bones and no dog to feed?  A turkey carcass that looks butchered?  Waste not, my dear.  Practice the secret of gourmet chefs everywhere.  Stock is an ideal way to extract nutrients and flavour from asparagus roots, beef bones and the parts of brocolli that people just don’t want to eat.  You can do stocks of vegetables, with meat or fish, and they are very simple.
