  • Frozen food has come a long way since I was a kid when "meals for men" were things like fried chicken with mac and cheese. Sure, those were tasty but they better be for all the bad stuff in them. STOUFFER'S® Fit Kitchen offers an alternative that is much more mature, with protein packed meals that are actually pretty satisfying. The other nice thing is that unlike some frozen dinners that are packaged in a tiny box forcing you to eat 2 or 3 of them to feel full, these are a complete dinner that is easy to make and tastes great.

  • When you think of a great Vegas buffet, chances are you think about the Bacchanal over at Caesar's Palace or Aria's awesome new buffet we plowed through earlier this year. What I WASN'T expecting was that Excalibur's buffet would be right up there, delivering a feast fit for a king. While the days of costumed knights and ladies is gone and so is the super kitschy medieval feast theme, what's replaced it is a super clean, light and airy dining room with an updated menu and easy navigation.

  • Like most guys, I lead a busy lifestyle and unfortunately that frequently means meals that aren't the most healthy. After all, it's easy to grab a burrito from the freezer and stick it in the microwave for a few minutes and call it lunch. In the past, I haven't been a fan of frozen meals but I decided to try the new LEAN CUISINE® Marketplace meals. These new offerings come in three categories that are much more upscale and designed for today's lifestyle: "Made With Organic Ingredients", "High Protein", and "Gluten Free". The days of being limited to salsbury steak and enchiladas are gone. Instead I found more appetising offerings including: Vermont White Cheddar Mac & Cheese, Sweet Sriracha Braised Beef, and... ok I lied - you can still have Spicy Beef & Bean Enchiladas!

  • Ok, so I had some help but I think this is an AWESOME idea and it was super fun to try out. Essentially, each Hard Rock Cafe is participating in a celebration of different styles of hamburgers that are inspired by different awesome cities around the world. Different locations will have different selections from their list of 16 different burgers. Each of those burgers is inspired by a different city that hosts a Hard Rock Cafe location. 

    Our collection included the Date Burger - Dubai, Java Lava Burger - Seattle, Schnitzel Burger - Cologne, and my favorite the Banh Mi Burger from Ho Chi Minh City.

  • This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Weight Watchers® Ice Cream for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

    Ok guys, I know usually talk of watching what you eat is typically the domain of women, but I am a fan of doing what you can without making sacrifices. I don't like sugar-free soda and I can't stand a lot of "healthy" meal choices because it feels like I am punishing myself with every bite. While that might work well for a few days or weeks, it isn't a sustainable solution to stay healthy.

    For many years, Weight Watchers® has been a great source of inspiration for people looking to make healthy choices and I have a HUGE amount of respect for the organization because they recognize its about more than just "eliminate all the fat!". Instead, they have a focus on living a more healthy life through smart decisions including portion control. That's the same attitude that they have brought to their ice cream bars as well and I was honestly very impressed by what I sampled recently.

  • It's almost summer and that means it's time to break out the grill again and hopefully shine as the dinner time hero you know you are. However, even the best grill masters out there didn't get that way without some practice, common sense, and advice passed down to them from their elders.

    Smart & Final! is one of my favorite places to shop, especially when it comes to entertaining. It's the perfect place to start if you are planning a family BBQ this year but even when planning a nice romantic dinner for that special someone, it's a great place to shop. The thing I love about Smart & Final! is that they they have some great private label brands and since they carry warehouse sized items at great prices. 

  • This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Char-Broil for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

    It's been a long time since I've used charcoal... a few years ago I abandoned the delicious smoky flavor for the easy to use, quick to clean up and more precise gas grill (which BTW just happened to be a Char-Broil). However, I was thrilled to discover that the engineers at Char-Broil have been working hard to bring some innovative designs to the world of charcoal grills. Their new Kettleman frankly kicks butt and you could even say that #KettlemanKicksAsh. It is absolutely light years beyond what I had experienced in the past with a similar "kettle grill".

    While I'm never going to solve the convenience factor of being able to turn gas on or off, what I found with this Char-Broil Kettleman Grill grill was that it addressed all of my other concerns.

  • Spring is a time of new beginnings, of new relationships and one of the peak wedding seasons. Let's take a step back in time though... before wives and girlfriends, before kids, to a time when all that mattered was a quick and easy dinner with minimal cleanup that tasted awesome and could be made for just one person. When meals consisted of frozen entrees and freezer fries?

    Do you remember those bachelor days now?

    One of the great things about traveling is trying different foods and seeing how those foods morph and adapt as they are embraced by one culture and then another. I can't think of any dish that has been adapted in so many ways than a simple curry, which likely originated from southern India but is now the national dish of England, with variations found in Thai, West African, Caribbean, and American cuisine today. It is even popular as a type of sausage street food in Germany, known as currywurst. 

    Today though, I am going to share my own interpretation that is super quick and easy to prepare and while it tastes delicious on day one - it's even better the next day, so make a big batch and be prepared for easy to re-heat leftovers!

  • It's national grilled cheese month and I still have some corned beef brisket left in the fridge since St Patrick's Day and I was looking for something special to make with them that was different than the corned beef and cabbage I've already had a few times. Instead, I decided to make an ULTIMATE grilled corned beef and havarti grilled cheese sandwich. 

  • I get hungry like everyone sometimes and honestly I'm not myself when that happens. You Probably get the same way but that's when I like to grab a Snickers. Yeah, I know that sounds like a cheesy intro to another sponsored post, but it's the truth. Traveling can be tough with changes in time zones, unfamiliar locations, and lets face it you aren't at home with easy access to your fridge and microwave either for a quick snack. However, one thing I love about Snickers is that it has the perfect balance of sugar sweetness, chocolatey deliciousness, and protein from the peanuts (or almonds). It's really a great snack to stick in my backpack for those moments when you need something to pick you up a bit.

  • I've finally found it! I knew that San Diego had to have a restaurant that was equally good at ambiance as it is in service, preparation, and presentation. Earlier this month Heather and I were invited to have dinner and check out Greystone Steakhouse - one of the older restaurants here in San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter.

    Greystone Steakhouse just recently celebrated 15 years of operation here and after the amazing dinner we enjoyed, I can see why it's been able to survive so long and I am sure they will continue to have great success for many more years to come!

  • Who said you can't combine two of the top choices for companions while watching football - Beer and Chili? Not the folks over at Sapporo who sent in this great recipe for us to share with you guys!

  • It's time for "The Big Game" and that means more awesome treat ideas to make your football party awesome! 

    No big sporting event is complete without controversy and boy oh boy have we had that over the past week with some guys in New England. Unfortunately, it shows no sign of ending between now and the time you are going to be holding your "super" awesome football party next week. So let's capitalize on it by making a treat that will make your guests laugh, giggle, and maybe even start a spirited discussion or two! With that said, here is our recipe for Tom's "Deflated" OREO cookie Footballs.

  • It's Valentine's season again and every year it seems that it gets longer and more complicated, so I've created a unique recipe that is SUPER easy to create but will make you look like a rockstar when giving it to someone you love! The basic concept is that love should be sweet, fun, surprising, and maybe even a little bit sticky.

    That sounds just like the classic red velvet cake and so when I learned that Walmart had the exclusive on the new Red Velvet M&M's® and they were looking for fun recipes I got pretty excited!

  • The fast food industry is always searching for something new and while many are going in the direction of bigger and more ridiculous, Carl's Jr. is going the other direction with their satisfyingly sized new All-Natural Burger, which is available as a single or double. What sets this aside is that it is the first all-natural, no added hormones, no antibiotics, no steroids, grass-fed, free-range beef patty from a major fast food company. 

    We tried it recently and it tastes great... and now we are giving four of you a chance to win one!

    Read on for more of our Carl's Jr. All-Natural Burger Review...

  • Sweets are only a part of the equation when it comes to entertaining during football season - the next essential ingredient is some hearty food that inspires your guests inner rivalries and After considering different foods across this country, "chili" was the one that stood out since no matter where you go - Texas, Cincinnati, Denver, Kansas City, Detroit, etc. Each city has it's own different interpretation of chili that they passionately hold to and will defend, just like they do their favorite football team!

    So I was pretty excited when I was selected to prepare two of my favorite chili recipes as part of a homegating recipe with Alexia Fries and Onion Rings.

  • It's that time of year again - College Football is almost over and the pro's are getting ready for "The Big Game" so those of us who love to throw parties to go along with sporting events like this know that it's time for us to start practicing as well! Are you ready to go shopping with me and put together some recipes featuring SNICKERS®, Life-Savers®, and Skittles®? I think you'll like what we came up with!

  • Sometimes in life you discover great new things completely by accident. That's how we found Viva Bar + Kitchen actually... we had gone to have dinner at a different place that sadly we left feeling we needed to go somewhere else to eliminate the "bad feeling" left in our belly. When we walked by Viva, the super friendly hostess on the sidewalk told us it was "taco tuesday" and so we figured, "what the heck" and walked in to check it out.

    That taco and that experience was good enough that before the end of our snack that we had already booked our New Year's Eve dinner here the next day.

  • Since 1969, when Byron and Virginia Hardin opened their first location in Ocean Beach, Hodad's has been a legendary burger joint in San Diego. With an atmosphere that borders on kitschy tourist trap but somehow manages to stay authentic, this is a must-visit location for anyone visiting the city. However, what makes it even more awesome is that it is more than just a "cool place" to grab a bite, it is serving up some of the most amazing burgers in the whole world. 

    For those of you who have never been to Ocean Beach, it is a beach town located just north of the city and is full of hippies / surfer culture, so it is also great for people watching.

Let's Stay In Touch!
