If you were lucky like I was, your mom made this cake for you when you were a kid, and then if your luck continued into adulthood, you stumbled onto someone who loves you enough to make this cake over and over, whenever you ask.
Sunday night, the wife (MHNBPF) made this cake for me. It is old fas...

One of the best things you can do for your pantry is to keep homemade chicken broth in the freezer. It is more cost effective and more flavorful than any canned broth you might find on a grocer's shelf. For the cost of a hen, we get about 5 pints of excellent broth and all of the meat from the hen -...

The wife (MHNBPF) decided I needed a great cake tonight and the great cake she decided I needed was Citrus Pound Cake. I helped by talking photos, sneaking batter out of the mixer bowl a time or two and by licking the mixer paddle clean. I also performed thorough organoleptic testing on the complete...

We boiled shrimp the other night. They were great and we had maybe 25 large spicy shrimp left over that were chilled in the refrigerator until tonight. What better start could the wife (MHNBPF) have for one of several shrimp pasta dishes she makes that are to die for?

Sometimes we make a dish and I immediately wish I had photographed the preparation to share.

I have stated my love for Great Northern Beans with ham or sausage many times in the past. Yesterday I started with good intentions to make Bean and Kale Soup. It was chilly cold here and what could be better than some thick brothed bean and kale soup with cornbread?
Although the two meals we enj...

38 - 13. A giant chasm will open up in VaughtHemmingway, the U of M faithful will spontaneously combust, melt and drain down into the bowels of the earth.
Key memories from the game:
The bears will not be able to stop our running backs and our passing attack.
Our D will shut them down

It was cool tonight and I had some leftover boiled shrimp, so I thought I'd make some Chowder. After a trip through the refrigerator and pantry I decided I had enough to pull off my recipe so here we go.
To serve four, you'll need:
Half cup of chopped celery
Half cup of chopped onion

I wanted some Smoked Pork today and wound up with what the butcher called "Boneless Pork Country Ribs" I think that is butcher talk for slices of the end of a boneless pork loin.
