Italian Garlic Ground Beef and Cumin Carrots

UPC’s Italian Garlic Ground Beef and Cumin Carrots I first had Cumin Carrots when I took me Eating Out In DC trip last spring. I still vividly remember the trip, despite that it was 10 months ago. The food there is expensive (who’s surprised? because I’m not), but if you can manage to […]


Mustard Steak 5

UPC’s Mustard Steak and Sweet Potato Fries First, I want to thank you all. I checked my stats yesterday (it’s becoming compulsive… side effect of having a blog) and we’re on track for my best month ever! So, here’s a HUGE “Thank you!” to all of you who are actively […]


Baked Sweet Potato Bun Burgers 2

UPC’s Baked Sweet Potato Bun Burgers I’ve been playing around with various different ways to eat a burger. In my opinion, a well made burger is a hallmark of a great chef. Anyone can make a burger, and most people can make a decent burger. But so very few people […]


Baked Yuca Chips with Coconut Aminos 6

UPC’s Baked Yuca Chips with Coconut Aminos So… How did you all enjoy my running in the snow-storm pictures? Have you ever gone for a run in the snow? Have you ever noticed how quiet, peaceful, and serene everything is while that snow is slowly, silently falling around you, filling […]


Toasted Pumpkin Seeds Recipe

UPC’s Vegetable Chicken Stock Salmon Soup My wife and I have really been enjoying kicking our days off with our soups. She got a huge kick out of me posting the recipe for our own, personal “Sopa Levanta Muertos” last week, and has had no end in enjoyment sharing and commenting […]


Black Olive Tapenade 6

UPC’s Black Olive Tapenade I have writer’s block right now. It’s a little bit funny, because I write this blog to share myself with you all because I really love sharing, and getting feedback. So the idea that I might have writer’s block is a little bit strange to me. […]


Sopa Levanta Muertos – Morning Soup 2

UPC’s Sopa Levanta Muertos – Morning Soup I’m tired today. I had a great weekend, with some excellent social time, and a few really top-notch workouts! Of course, there’s always another side to every story – with the “great social time” here in the NYC area, usually comes late nights, loss […]


Guest Post Recipe: Eggs In A Nest 3

Today I am so excited!! I know that I rarely put up a post on the weekend, but that could change if you all follow suit with this reader… One of my regular readers (Gary) sent this along to me, and it is just so great looking, and filled me […]
