One of my projects is a couple of cook books. One of which I am calling “Duct Tape and a Ketchup Packet“. The basic premise was even if you think you have nothing, there are still things to create a gourmet meal out of even if it is just a couple of liberated condiments and dips. In this instance I found a lonely KFC BBQ sauce in the deli drawer which happened to be on top of a package of pie crust. This ended up be orgasmic, seriously I thought Geoff was going to.. umm well you get the picture! Read More

How many of you out there have a man who has been sick? I mean really sick, you know dying?! Well I have one and the ManBeast is dying! Just ask him! At one point in time, he wanted me to bring a cot downstairs because had no energy to go sleep in the bed. His reasoning to not go upstairs? He did not want to get germs on the pillow cases. I wish I could have gotten a recording of it because it truly was horrific! Instead I dug through our cupboards and cookbooks and online and ended up piecing together this recipe.
I grew up with a wonderful set of parents, I was one of the lucky ones. So many stories surround the dysfunctional aspects of childhood, the damaged people who survive and their fight to find themselves and find their way back to a place of balance. Many of these stories involve the journey to find the love of their lost faith, Doxology is one of these books.
This story is about more than simple familial dysfunction. It is tale of fathers, sons and brothers and a journey back to home to find the lost ties that are of this faith that is so deeply rooted in family. It is a story of these men and the ties that bind them together. Living with a southern man, I can say that food is one way that has always bound his family together. Geoff is an Atheist so faith and belief do not play a part in his life. But come Sunday evening when he is with his family, even if he was not at the church pew that morning, he can be found breaking bread with them all.
It is the same with my family, we may not agree with our varying beliefs and how we practice them. Or agree with how to raise our children or how we live our lives. But we can all agree to sit down and share a meal. To share our love for each other, to feel the warmth that is not just in the bread we are breaking but in our hearts because despite it all we are family. Read More
