Mac Attack 2018

Of all the events our stations do, this is my favorite. Taste testing mac & cheese! There was 18 different mac & cheeses to try this year. My #1 favorite was the mac & cheese that couldn't be judged because they were the main sponsor - that's the Niagara Falls Culinary Institute ...

This is Nashville, not Greece!

I'm the worst when it comes to pictures. I'll take them (occasionally) but never bother posting them. This is from my November trip to Tennessee. I hit up Nashville for my first time and Pigeon Forge which I get to once a year. There's a bunch of pics so I had to put them on different pages. Here's...

December's New-To-Me Food

The final new-to-me food of 2017 was pasta carbonara. I've had all the ingredients before, but never combined this way. This (along with stuffed hot peppers) ended up being my favorite new food of the year - awesome way to end. And even better, it was homemade! Not be me, but by my friends who set...

November's New-To-Me Food

This month was jalepeno poppers. How have I gone this far in life without trying these?! Had them at Manor Lanes and they were perfect. There is a reason for this month's new food. I'm completely obsessed with the NBC show The Good Place and jalepeno poppers get mentioned frequently. So of course I...

October's New-To-Me Food

This month it was lo mein at a Chinese buffet (the second Chinese buffet I've ever ate at in my life). I actually surprised myself liking it - ended up getting three helpings. An egg roll was also new to me - kind of a blah taste especially after the lo mein. Then there was the other stuff I got...

September's New-To-Me Food

I know, living in Buffalo I should've tried beef on weck many times over by now. But I'm not a fan of overly salty things. And lots of salt with beef just seems wrong. So yeah, this was a definite no for me. The only things about beef on weck I liked was the beef itself and the horseradish (I put...

TV Shows That Need To Be On DVD (pt 2)

Here's a few more shows that haven't been released on DVD yet & never get shown on TV. Again there's a lot of 80's shows - my list from the 90's & beyond is almost non-existent as those are usually easy to find online (but I def included more of them this time)... The Lost Saucer (1975) : A...

TV Shows That Need To Be On DVD (pt 1)

All those video tapes in the pic above have really obscure TV shows on them. Stuff that's never shown on TV anymore and has never appeared on DVD. But transferring them is a giant pain. So I keep holding out hope they'll eventually get released on DVD. One of my top 10 DVD wish list shows recently...
