This spread is a favorite of mine.

It is slightly spicy, chock-full of vegetables and it contains cheese, so you know it’s got to be good.

The recipe inspiration comes from a favorite restaurant back in Wisconsin, High Rock, except that they have this special, secret hot sauce (Gilly’s hot sauce) that gives it kick. I don’t have Gilly’s hot sauce as it’s a home-made specialty so I had to use some jalapeno hot sauce, but it gives the same affect. Any type of hot sauce would work. Next time I think I might just try it with sriracha…

I can at least promise that sauteing garlic in olive oil will have everyone wondering what you are up to and when exactly it will be ready to eat. Isn’t it amazing how a simple ingredient cooking can bring everyone around to the kitchen?

To say that I’m excited for all of the restaurants that come with a new city, is a huge understatement. We’ve already got a pretty long list going and I’m sure we’ll be adding to it faster than we cross them off. Apartment searching was a great reason to head out and try a few

The Taster and I carpool everyday to work. Or, I guess I should say we did. But everyday for many months, as I drove to the Best Buy Corporate Headquarters I saw the process of a new restaurant and market being remodeled. Once it was open I had to stop in! I also needed masa

No bueno. 11:00 Breakfast: 1

We finally got to Masu Sushi & Robata. It has been quite the hot spot since it opened a few months ago and I’ve been pretty anxious to get there – mainly because of their Pork Belly Ramen. The decor is amazing. It’s fun and interesting, hip and each wall has something interesting for your
