Fully Loaded Hot Dogs

Fully Loaded Hot Dogs

If we were to play an impromptu word association game with the word beanie weenie, I bet I could guess your word. Is it ketchup? Ball game? Cheap? Can? Kid food? Fatty? Or did you just crinkle up your nose? Come on, don’t be snobby. […]

Chicken Satay with Spicy Peanut Sauce – Come for the Peanut Butter. Stay for the Satay.

This could be the best chicken satay I’ve ever had. Why? Peanut butter sauce. Peanut butter is like that friend who always shows up. You know, the type of friend who you can go without seeing for months, and when you finally do get together, […]
