    As I was chopping onions

    for a sauce my mother wanted me to make, my eyes started to burn like hell. Usually on tv and in movies, whenever a character is chopping onions, their eyes begin to water and they "cry." Many of my own friends say that they cry as well. But, of course, I don't. Instead, my eyes...

    Almost Always Do

    I like to cook.  I enjoy making dinner.  My wife likes to cook too but I don't believe she enjoys it as much as I do.  That's fine because I really like cooking and baking.  She is an excellent help in the kitchen and does cook dinner from time to time but it just has worked...

    The Husband That Makes Dinner!

    It's kind of strange that my parents had 4 children. Three boys and one girl. All of the boys (46,58 & 62) make ALL of the meals in their households while my sister eats a balony sandwich just about every night that she doesn't stop at my parents home for dinner. I jokingly...

    Again Tonight.

    My cousin marinated and fried chicken strips, they were sooo good!  I baked sliced potatoes in sour cream and ranch dressing, topped with a thick layer of cheese.  It was delicious.
