Back to Foxborough

2015 and the Baltimore Ravens are headed back to Foxborough, Massachusetts for another playoff game. It's common knowledge I'm a Steeler fan, from a Steeler family, with a strong affinity for the Baltimore Ravens.  Jon, my younger brother, has the typical disdain for the Ravens that many Steeler fans seem to embody.  Ravens fans as well. My baby bro is completely appalled by my...

Kansas City Here I Come

It's been quite some time since I've posted an actual blog. The past few months my focus has been on my new website www.cookingwiththepros.us  and simply haven't taken the time to sit down and write. As I woke this morning, determined to post before my day. Soccer with Brooke, a party for Paige, and Brooke hosting her own Halloween gathering this evening, my mind considered...

National Fried Chicken Day!!!!

    July 6th is National Fried Chicken Day!!! Truth be told, I think most Americans agree with the idea it really should be celebrated July 4th. You don't get more American than fried chicken.  But I'll assume in an effort to give the tasty bird it's proper "shine",  the people that decide these dates;  I guess the Colonel, the lady from Popeyes , and...

Go US,Taylor Twellman, and Ole’

  Under horrendous conditions team USA advances to the "Sweet Sixteen" in the FIFA World Cup. Now here's the deal. We didn't win but,  because Portugal beat Ghana that allowed us to move forward. Awesome right. Getting rewarded for someone else's loss. Why you ask??  There is a whole point system in place.  Because I'm really  not qualified to explain...

For The Fathers……Great Shrimp Dishes

With World Cup , NBA finals, and NHL finals all in full affect, I think most Dads can find a sport to their liking. Holy sports fest!!!  This is the kind of week my father would have loved. This blog and the recipes are dedicated to my Dad. As I sit here, I realize I can't find the words that would do justice to who my father was, so I won't. Just know he was amazing and my love of...

Bad Break Up

By far the most heart wrenching break up I ever experienced, was when Mr. Big left Carrie at the church and drove off in his Mercedes. Even though he thought he'd changed his mind, it didn't matter to Ms. Bradshaw.  All Sex In The City fans wept for days. So I'm guessing, for tennis star Caroline Wozniacki, it was better to have an engagement abruptly end as opposed to...

Girls Night Out!

Without disclosing my age, I will let you know that last weekend I celebrated my birthday with several close friends in Baltimore. Fun was had by all, but the kick off to the weekend was simply amazing. 7th row up right behind the catcher at Camden Yards. The weather was perfect, the Orioles won, but it was one of the shortest games ever. How on Earth did I get the best seats of my life and no...
