Air Fryer Prime Rib Eye Steak

As I said a month ago, I now have an air fryer in the kitchen and I have really grown to love it. I love it so much that I used it to “air fryer” a prime rib eye steak! Admittedly, the air fryer does not do everything well. I tried making homemade onion rings […]

The other day my daughter was cruising around Pinterest looking at interesting food prep ideas as kids do these days when she came across a video of a guy making Fondant Potatoes.

Eggs Poached in Cream

On a recent trip to the cabin I tried poaching eggs in cream and the results were pretty darn delicious. I started my breakfast prep by baking a pan of brown sugar bacon in the oven. Then I heated my non-stick skillet to a medium-low temperature before scooping a tablespoon or two of bacon fat […]

Brave Star Selvage Denim Update

A little more than a year ago I received my super-heavy Brave Star Selvege jeans. A pair of jeans made from a 21.5 ounce denim. For perspective, my unwashed “Rigid” denims from Levi’s are made from something like a 12 ounce denim. My Brave Stars are nearly twice as heavy as any of my Levi’s. […]
