Micro Greens Chicken Salad 2

UPC’s Micro Greens Chicken Salad It’s been quite a while since I’ve written a post. For that I apologize. I’ve lost a bit of my “mojo” recently. Part of that is because I’ve just got too much on my plate in the real world. Of course, I simply need to […]

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 […]

Niman Ranch Uncured Canadian Bacon – A “The Bacon Project” Post 4

Trader Joe’s Uncured Turkey Bacon This is getting to be a challenge! I started up this project series with the idea that I would root out all of the different varieties of high-quality bacon available in grocery stores, try them out, and share my thoughts with all of you. Obviously, […]


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 […]

Roast Beef and Sweet Citrus Salad 2

UPC’s Roast Beef and Sweet Citrus Salad There’s something special about slow-cooked meat. It’s really easy to make, and really easy to time for completion. It’s both demanding and forgiving: demanding in that you must plan enough time or it won’t work, and forgiving in that as long as you […]


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 […]

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 […]

Raisin Chia Porridge 5

UPC’s Raisin Chia Porridge I realize that the title is not terribly appealing. When I think about the word “Porridge” my mind conjures up entirely fictional and imagined images from when my father used to read Patrick McManus books to me and my siblings as kids. The reading, and the […]
