Mike’s Ridiculously Delicious Baby Back Ribs

When I met Mike, he didn’t eat pork, or hamburger, or steak. I loved him anyway. I didn’t necessarily understand how he could not like bacon, but he had so many other great traits, I decided to overlook this one oddity. More bacon for me, I figured. Fast forward seven years. Not only does Mike......

A Nibble out of the Big Apple

In a previous post I wrote about how nice everyone was in NYC. Now it’s time to discuss the food…and it was amazing. As self-appointed foodies, much of the plans we made for our trip included food.
