Green Olive Tuna Tartar 12

UPC’s Green Olive Tuna Tartar I LOVE Tuna Tartar. Believe it or not, I love a best-of Tuna Tartar even more than a real top-quality steak tartar! Fortunately for us, we usually don’t have to ask “which one is better,” since there are so few restaurants actually serving both Tuna […]

After Workout Power Meal 1

UPC’s After Workout Power Meal It’s been quite some time since I’ve put up an after-workout meal for you. I guess, to be fair, it’s been a while since I had one that was as good-looking, or as good tasting, as this one. Well, that’s not entirely true… The Shredded […]

What’s For Dinner? Maduro Beef Picadillo 9

UPC’s Maduro Beef Picadillo This has been a LONG week for me! It has nothing to do with the holiday this weekend, and waiting for the weekend to come. It’s actually been so long partly because of social engagements, and partly because of the race last weekend. I’ve been recovering […]

What’s For Dinner? Slow-Cooked Beef Picadillo

UPC’s version of Beef Picadillo: Slow-Cooked with Olives and Raisins! Every once in a while, while my wife and I are playing the “what do you want for dinner?” game, we agree immediately on what we want. That happened last night. I asked, as I so often do, “What do […]
