Salsa Please! Hold the Tomato!

The 4th of July is right around the corner and that means 2 things: Picnics and fireworks! I believe my expertise would best be used in helping you with the first item. I’ve never tried eating a sparkler, however, I would imagine it easier if unlit. Continue reading

Reduce, Reuse and Recycle 2.0

It’s Friday after a long week and all you want to do it slip into your PJ’s and watch TV. You could A, call for take out, B, have a bowl of cereal or C, clean out your fridge, make a quick dinner and do something good for you all at the same time! If you chose the last option, come with me on a journey to the back of my fridge! I’m about to make a pizza with left-overs!

Oh No You Di’int! (Oh Yes I Did)

The boardwalk holds many, many memories for me. From the ocean-side boards of Ocean City, MD and Rehoboth, DE to the random “strip mall” type in Myrtle Beach, I love them all! The souvenir shops might all be the same and, frankly, I am amazed by what you can find with your first name emblazoned on the side! Apart from keychains and vulgar t-shirts there is the salty humid air, the sandy grit between your flip-flops and the worn planks of wood, the beach bodies (both fantastic and less than) and of course the food! Little can compare to the aroma of an ocean front pizza shop or french fry stand. You can almost see the cartoon-esque waft of food smells trailing down the beach and dragging an unsuspecting tanner by his nostrils off his towel, past the dunes and up the counter where he orders a funnel cake for no other reason then “they have funnel cake!”. So what’s the smell that gets me every time? The french fries! Erics quick tip: When used correctly, a medium boardwalk fry can be used as lunch. If you have ever been unsure about boardwalk fries and their sublime perfection, I have a small experiment for you to try. Throw one fry onto the boardwalk. Examine the frenzy of gulls as 2 dozen birds vie for just a beak-full of fried potato bliss. Now, repeat with a stem of broccoli. Record and note any differences.

More Cluck for Your Buck

A twist on an icon, the chicken burger is wildly versatile. It can take on just about any flavor you add to it.  And can we start with the fact that a typical chicken burger has about 150 less calories than its beef counterpart? Find out what I did to mine to pack it full of veggies and imbibe it with a fuller flavor! Fire up your grill and practice your best cluck! Continue reading

Fast Food! Ok, Relatively Swift Food.

I’m a bit of a salad freak. First and foremost, I love fresh food, so a salad is the perfect combination of all things fresh! Plus, what could be faster after a day of work, a quick catch-up on the DVR, working on your cook-book and food blog than throwing together a salad. In the summer I love to add local fresh produce from market and maybe something grilled. In this case the “something grilled” was chicken! Take a look at what I spent a whole 15 minutes on!
