    Strategies for Speeding up ABT Construction???

    ABTs are the bomb. Everybody knows that. But they take so darn long to assemble. Takes me 1-2 hours standing in the kitchen to put together 75-100 ABTs. I feel like I'm doing it wrong. Gotta be a better, faster way. I mean, they're great, but who has time for that? Any advice on ABT...

    First Mc'D, then Arby's, then BK, now this

    I have this week's grocery store flyers on my desk, and a coworker sees an item and starts oohing and ahhing. What is it? A bacon-wrapped, cheese-stuffed jalapeno platter. Seriously? Can't the stores just leave us alone?

    When I first learned of these from the Brethren, I knew it was something I was gonna have to try, so I added them to the meal plans for yesterday. I picked up six FAT jalapenos from the grocery store produce case and cut the tops off... I sliced each pepper lengthwise... I cleaned...

    Recycling: Tacos into ABTs!

    For Valentine's day I decided to make the most romantic food of all, Tacos! Okay, they might not be the most romantic food but, that's what my wife and daughters wanted. And, I can't say no to a request from my adoring fans/family/overseers. :shock: Anyways, I love to eat tacos but, find the...

    Thursday on the BGE

    Now that storms are over for now, it was time to fire up the XL BGE. I love caprese salad, so I figured on trying grilled caprese salad, with nice, thick pork chops and grilled ciabatta bread... I didn't have time to bake the bread, so I bought it from Todd at a local market. Then I seasoned...
