Chicken, Instant Pot, Pasta -

Lately I have been working on recipes using the new Instant Pot that we picked up a few months ago. I have tried a few different things with the Instant Pot and I must say that this recipe for Buffalo Mac and cheese is amazing. The Instant Pot also makes it a breeze to make. Clean up is also so easy that the teens fought over who would do dishes that night. You can easily customize this recipe to your tastes. Add more buffalo sauce or add less. I also used mozzarella, cheddar and pepper jack cheeses but you can use what...

Bearded Badass Rub, Beef -

Today I stopped by my local grocery store to pick up dishwasher soap. As I was walking by the meat area I noticed some ground lamb which was on sale and then my bald head got to thinking.

I recently had the opportunity to compete on a food truck competition show.

About a year ago I came up with an amazing cocoa rub for beef. It was flipping great and like Life will have it I lost the dang recipe. So a few months ago, I went back to the drawing board.

That got me to thinking, maybe I could make a spicy mayo tonight to use with some burgers. As I left the pantry with the chipotles in hand I saw the new cocoa...

Other, Veggies -

The Nampa Framers' Market opened up last week and I just knew we had to go and see what delights these incredible Idaho farmers had for us. I just love going to the local farmers' market and becoming inspired and this week was no different. While walking through the market I came across some of the most beautiful mushrooms I have ever seen in my life thanks to Groves Country Mushroom Farm. These things were unbelievable so I knew I had to get them and then I'll figure out what to do with them. I will say it did not...
