Sweet Potato Tacos Finished

TERRA’S KITCHEN: Sweet Potato Tacos PLUS Crispy Citrus Chicken and Garlic Broccoli Skillet.


Every now and again, I like to give a try to something that might give us a hand when we’re down (like when I had the flu this past week and couldn’t cook) OR if we’re just having a really busy week with travel or long days or commutes to the office. It just so

A Weekend in the Sonoran Desert with Corning Gorilla Glass.


Up until earlier this month, I’m pretty sure that I’d only ever been through Arizona once, which was during our cross-country drive (with a 2-year old, 8-week old and dog), so it was tough to actually stop for a minute and take in it’s full beauty. So in February, when Corning Incorporated reached out to


Italian Wedding Soupla Hoopla.


March Madness rages on and with it, comes an appetite for the win. I’m one of those GO BIG OR GO HOME kinda guys and if you pick up the right items and get behind the wheel of this soup, you’re bound for victory. I found this recipe a few years ago in an Ina


This Could Save Your Child’s Life.


With three kids under the age of six, we’ve obviously gone through different stages of development at varying times. I’ll be the first to admit that there’s nothing sweeter than being able to take those baby gates down, instead of trying to be a hero, high-stepping and dragging your undercarriage across the plastic, mesh or


The Sport I Loved to Hate.


When we were kids, my dad would make us help him with the yard work in the summer. Instead of using the grass catcher, he would fire it into the atmosphere and start handing out rakes. Perhaps it was to get us out of the house and give mom a break, so she could dance

It’s February 29th, which only happens every four years and I’m still rollin’ deep in pickles that I made (myself) back in late August. Maybe it’s not the height of summer pickling, but you might wanna tuck this away – bookmark it – for the coming weeks, because there’s nothing sweeter, crispier and snappier than


Helping Hands.


With Blizzard Jonas finally behind us, I can actually see pieces of grass in the front yard again. What’s Blizzard Jonas, you ask? Well, for the very few of you that weren’t actually affected, it was a recent snowstorm of gargantuan proportion. When it was all said and done, it had dumped almost three feet


My Kids Ruined My Wardrobe.

It’s true. In a galaxy far, far away, in another place and time, I actually owned a few pieces of beautiful clothing. I had designer jeans and shirts with buttons, neatly pressed featuring collar stays and paper inserts from the dry cleaner. They were color-coded in my closet, vibrant hues of primary and secondary colors

What I’ve Learned About Cruising with Kids.

In the beginning (2004), when Jen and I were dating, cruising was just ‘her’ thing. Anytime anyone had brought up the topic of cruise ships, even if she was on the other side of the room submerged in the most serious of conversations, her head would pop up on a swivel like a velociraptor to


Bangin’ Banana Nut Bread.


Last week we took the kids down to Williamsburg, Virginia to explore some historical landmarks and also celebrate a belated 2nd birthday for Mason at the Great Wolf Lodge – more on that next week as the Dad or Alive travel section debuts. Our planning couldn’t have been more complicated, as Snowmageddon was gripping our
