Valentine's Day 2013 with Friends

Valentine’s Day is one of those holidays you either look forward too with your significant other or you dread it because you’re single. Well I’m one of those single men who try to overlook the day and wait impatiently for the 15th. This year sitting around with friends and asking them what they had planned…

Sunday Lunch – Seafood Fair at Home

I enjoy having my sons cook along side me in the kitchen, especially when they are contributing to the meal with one of their own creations! Today my son, Austin and I headed to the grocery store to pick up a few things for a late lunch. We arrived back at the house to get…

Tequila Tilapia and Shrimp

Tequila Tilapia and Shrimp I’ve always been a big fish lover. More so than red meat. It’s healthier and lighter too. One of my all-time favorite fish is the Tilapia. You can buy it anywhere and do just about anything with it. This time around I wanted to come up with a quick meal, as…

Week 1 Wine Review:Veramonte Sauvignon Blanc 2008

Our first wine in the series, “13 Wines in 13 Weeks” is a very fruitful Sauvignon Blanc by Veramonte from Casablanca Valley, Chile. I’ve always enjoyed a nice white wine.

Garlic Herb & Chipolte Sauteed Shrimp
