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 MORE

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 MORE

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 MORE

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 MORE

As those of you who have followed this blog with any regularity know, my wife and I have worked to introduce our son to eating fish as part of a healthy diet. Not to mention that Nancy and I both love eating it. It would not be an understatement to say that we have failed miserably.After mon MORE

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 MORE

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 and cooked in the church basem MORE

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 MORE

If you haven't noticed the trend already, Nancy and I have made going to the Urbana Market at the Square part of our Saturday morning routine. We love talking to the local farmers about what they're producing and finding new things to try. Today's kohlrabi recipe came about as a result of MORE

About Me
I love food! But I let that love get the best of me and my weight ballooned to more than 300 pounds. My wife and I joined Weight Watchers and, over a three-year period, I lost 100 pounds. However, I refused to give up on the foods I love, from Alfredo to cheeseburgers. I set out to find ways to eat almost anything I wanted, but to prepare it in a healthy way. Now, I'm sharing my love of food and cooking with others interested in living a healthy lifestyle.
