We are finally on the road! We were an hour late getting started Thursday morning, but managed to miss all but a few sprinkles of the forecast thunderstorms. I'll take that trade-off.
We traveled across most of Illinois on I-72 before picking up U.S. 36 to go across Missouri. U.S. 36 was a su

We spent most of the July 4th weekend prepping four our summer adventure, packing up camping gear, an oil change for my bike, cutting our acre of yard with the hope that we don't return to a jungle.
I was supposed to do tire changes as well, but the tires haven't shown up yet. UPS promises th

We have learned over the years of taking these summer motorcycle odysseys that there is a very fine line between a vacation and an adventure. As always, we will be towing that line!
I'm hoping to be able to continue to post this blog and document our travels and the the flavors we fin

This is one of the easiest dishes I've ever posted, but easy doesn't mean without flavor. This chicken spent the day in the slow-cooker, swimming in my
Kansas City Style BBQ Sauce. Dinner was only a matter of roasting some slice potatoes, toasting buns, pulling the chicken and putting th

Nancy is a fiend for fresh peaches. So, when we got our weekly email from the Urbana Market on the Square said that the first of the fresh peaches would be in last Saturday, she could hardly wait. I thought
we were going to be camping out in the parking lot like teenagers trying to get Lady

Nancy's Grandma B was everything you would expect of a Minnesota farm wife who grew up young and spent her whole life working hard. She planted in the spring, worked the fields with her husband, canned veggies for winter in the fall, went to church every Sunday

First off, apologies to everyone, I meant to post this early this morning, but had an epic bogger fail and had to get to work before I could finish it.
I was very excited when I saw this recipe in the May issue of Bon Appetit. I love those spicy veggie mixes you can get at most groceries, but
