My Favorite Vegetable

Excellent homemade mac & cheese with a panko crumb topping!


Detroit Pizza

Continuing to perfect our homemade Detroit-style pizza! This is a style of pizza developed back in the day in Detroit, MI. It is a rectangular pizza that has a thick, crisp crust and toppings to the edge. A ton of cubed cheese is what makes this pie. Special pan available from Amazon (LloydPans).

Homemade Hamburgers

We have finally perfected our homemade crispy shoestring onion recipe! Thanks to a good buttermilk soak and some lovin’ from Lady FoodObs. Makes the perfect burger topper.

Cincinnati Chili

After spending that two weeks in Ohio recently I was inspired to make homemade Cincinnati Chili again! Such an excellent comfort food dish. I really should make it more often.

Cincinnati Chili

Last summer I made this Midwest comfort food classic known as Cincinnati Chili! Turned out excellent! As far as “ways” go, this would be 4-Way. Sketti, chili, cheese and onions. I just had to add that beautiful sliced jalapeño from my garden to crown the top. The ultimate irony here is that I happen to be drafting this blog post while on a business trip in southwest Ohio! First place I ate after landing at the airport was the famous Skyline Chili. Keep an eye out for that post in a few months.

Baked Rigatoni

Outstanding baked rigatoni with bechamel sauce! This was a great recipe we made recently from Giada De Laurentiis. Italian comfort food at its finest. Turned out excellent. Props to anyone who knows which other Food Network star this beautiful baking dish is from.

Chicken Charlie’s Table

I had never heard of a “lobster slipper tail” until Chicken Charlie showed me the way! Super delicious battered and deep fat fried.

Detroit Pizza

We made another outstanding homemade Detroit Pizza! This time in lieu of red sauce, I made a white, creamy Parmesan/garlic sauce. Then topped with chunks of grilled chicken, crispy bacon and a pound of cheese!

Penne Alla Vodka

Outstanding homemade Penne Alla Vodka with Italian sausage!

Detroit Pizza

Another outstanding homemade Detroit Pizza! This time with Canadian Bacon! I just can’t get over those crispy, cheesy edges.
