Pork Fingers 6

  Pork Fingers I like finger food as much as the next guy. Really, I do. Finger food is probably featured in at least one meal per day. Every day. It’s just incredibly satisfying to eat a meal with my fingers. So, I have a huge amount of respect for […]

Bacon Wrapped Beef Tenderloin 3

  Bacon Wrapped Beef Tenderloin I am gearing up for hosting a party this coming weekend. It will be my first housewarming party hosted in my own home. In fact, it will be the first time I have ever hosted a party in my own home. Anywhere. Ever. This is a […]


Fig Beef Picadillo 3

Fig Beef Picadillo What a night! Have you ever stayed up WAAYYY too late doing something useless? I know you have. Obviously I have too. It’s funny, because I used to be the guy who thought that all of that staying up late business was just silliness. “What’s the point, if […]

Slow Cooked Rib Eye Steak 9

UPC’s Slow Cooked Rib Eye Steak and Veggies Spring has been teasing us here in the NYC area. It’s playing hide-and-go-seek, or some version. It’s like it shows just enough of itself to get us to be excited, get up, and start chasing it; but it’s a much better runner […]

Shredded Sweet Potato Salad 8

Shredded Sweet Potato Salad It’s not always all about the meat. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a huge fan of the meat that I eat, and it doesn’t take long for anyone reading my blog to recognize that immediately. Not only is meat delicious, it’s also the most nutrient dense […]


Blackened Shrimp Bento Box 2

UPC’s Blackened Shrimp Bento Box – A Hot&Cold Lunch Salad I had a lot of fun with the Hot&Cold Salad last winter and spring. It was one of my favorite ways to give myself a great helping of greens, while still enjoying a nice hot meal. Further, there’s nothing more […]

Kitchen Idiosyncrasies and Oven-Grilled Chicharron (Skin-On Slab Bacon) 9

UPC’s Oven-Grilled Chicharron Sometimes I forget how much my own kitchen is streamlined. I’ve got everything exactly where I want it, I know where it all is without even needing to stop and think. It’s a pleasure to have a space that is uniquely mine, optimized specifically for me and […]
