Firstly, just because I am posting a New England post today does not mean that I am endorsing the New England Patriots in this Sunday’s AFC Championship. Because, Steelers. Duh. Also, I actively hate the New England Patriots with a … Continue reading
I can’t remember how long ago it was that I made this dinner, just that I prepared it in my parents’ kitchen. When was the last time before the last time I was home? (checks calendar) Oh. May. Shit. Well, … Continue reading

I was inspired to go Hawaiian this week because the annual NFL Pro Bowl took place on January 29th and was, as always, held in the Aloha State. The Pro Bowl used to take place after the Super Bowl but they’ve … Continue reading
Championship Sunday. The best Sunday of the year. Seriously. Unless the Steelers are in the Super Bowl, I don’t get too invested. Super Bowl Sunday is more about commercials and half-time shows. Non-football people watch the Super Bowl. It all … Continue reading
