Welcome to my Kitchen

Read about and prepare the same recipes I have made for my family and friends. You may even pick up a few wines suggestions along the way.

The Fall Magazine Edition, Stories and Recipes

It will soon be fall and school has started back up for many of us. To me fall is a bit melancholy with its cooler days and changing leaves. Not to mention the fact that I hated going back to school as a kid. Today however, I can appreciate the cooler weather and the changing of the leaves and in the types of recipes I will be cooking as we will SLOWLY be moving from my barbeque (my favorite place in the backyard) into the kitchen (my favorite place in the house).

If you don’t cook yourself, you may still enjoy the wine pairing articles or the fine restaurants reviews that my family, friends, and coworkers have all attended with me. I am sure there will be many new fall adventures ahead. This after all is harvest season. I can hardly wait for the many varieties of apples to emerge as well as my favorite type of beer, Oktoberfest. Sam Addams makes my favorite Oktoberfest beer so far and it is on shelves already and soon will be gone.

So join us in learning about new things to eat, old favorite’s to enjoy and you may even decide on making somthing special for fall yourself. Throughout the rest of the year I will be writing my new cookbook called “How to Cook American Style” by The Drunken Chef and posting it right here for you to test out. They say there is no free lunch! I say Ha! There are no fees charged here where you can learn a new recipe or find a good place to eat. You may even find a new wine to try from our friend and sommelier Scott’s recommendations. I hope you enjoy “our” little magazine/blog and feel free to write us and let us know how we are doing.

Be happy, stay healthy, eat well and above all enjoy all life has to offer!
