Top 10 Recipes of 2012

Well, another year is soon to pass, and what another great year it has been. Our kids are quickly growing, and pretty much eating us out of the house. That is no lie. It’s also been a another great year of posting recipes for all of you. I’ve reached over 730 recipe posts since I’ve started this site in 2007 and have met some new friends along the way. I’m honored to be part of Tasty Kitchen, Food Gawker, TasteSpotting, Food Porn Daily, and recently Fox News Magazine. I should also mention that my good friends over at Nueske’s have blessed me with some amazing products that allowed me to think of new recipes.

Thank all of you for reading my stories, and hopefully trying a recipe from time to time. Not only that, but thank you for taking time out of your day to post wonderful comments. Those comments are often reasons I continue to create and post new recipes.

Here’s to an amazing 2013 to all of you. Be safe, and eat comforting food.

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.
