    After fattening myself up over the holidays, one of my perennial new year’s resolutions is to eat a healthier diet. I usually do pretty well sticking to it until the Super Bowl rolls around. I inevitably find myself at a party, watching the game, and succumbing to peer pressure by indulging in pizza, beer, whoopee pies, and football shaped Cocoa Krispies treats. For the last several months I have been on a self imposed low-carb […]

After a few disastrous attempts I finally hit on something that worked wonderfully as a substitute for traditional flour or cornmeal breading – Pork Rinds!  Yes, pork rinds! During my low-carb adventure, pork rinds have satisfied my cravings for […]

    The Ultimate Chicken Tortilla Soup Recipe #SandersonFarms

    Being a foodie, I felt compelled to experiment at home with the ingredients that I thought was in the soup so I could make it for myself. After a few tries, I finally perfected it.

    Bacon Wrapped, Chicken Stuffed Jalapeños #SandersonFarms ad

    Tailgating is one of my favorite things to do with Midlife Road Trip. There’s something about the smell of charcoal, lighter fluid, and grilled meat that just makes me happy. I am always amazed at the quality and creativity tailgaters are able to exhibit in preparing food in a parking lot or on the quad of a college campus. It’s as though there is a competition among some of the tailgaters that is a serious […]

If I had continued at this rate, it wouldn’t be long before I would be boarding cruise ships through the cargo door. Since writing about the food […]
