Shrimp Asparagus Stir Fry

Seafood

Life has a funny way of getting in the way of things. Case in point, my daughter is getting married this coming weekend and as a result I have been pretty busy. The planning and prep has taken me away from my cooking and blogging. But hey, I didn’t say life getting in the way […]

Dizzy Pig Departure Series IPA

Seafood

My good friends at Dizzy Pig Barbeque Company sent me their new line of rubs from their Departure Series.

Big Green Egg Thai Chili Ginger Tuna Burgers

I look for inspiration everywhere and strive to cook different and unique recipes as often as I can. For instance, my Facebook feed has more food stories than anything else (sorry friends).
