What’s For Breakfast? Portobello Bacon Avocado Breakfast Sandwich 2

UPCs UPC’s Portobello Bacon Avocado Breakfast Sandwich Believe it or not: I didn’t wear a suit today. I know, it’s shocking, right? That wasn’t tongue in cheek – it really is shocking! Today is the first day in almost a year that I’ve been to work without a suit. Well, admittedly I did go to […]

What’s For Dinner? Ginger Chicken Soup

UPC’s Ginger Chicken Soup There are a million varieties of chicken soup. That’s an accurate count, too, I think. Actually, if anything, I’m underestimating. There are probably at least 1 million and 1 varieties. At least. In fact, my wife and I end up with a new variety of chicken soup almost every night. Lately, […]


What’s For Lunch? Peppered Shrimp Bento Box

UPC’s Peppered Shrimp Bento Box It’s cool and rainy outside. There isn’t a lot of rain, but the rain drops that are coming down are generally bigger ones. I love weather like this for running; there’s really nothing quite as refreshing as the brisk feel of a light wind and some fat cool raindrops falling […]

Home-Made Chunky Dark Chocolate Butter

UPC’s Crunchy Dark Chocolate Butter I love indulging. Some of my favorite indulgences, as we’ve covered here in this blog, are life’s simple pleasures. This is obviously not a complete list, but certainly these items will make the top of my list: chocolate, bacon, chocolate bacon, smoked salmon, good wine, good tequila, good rum, sleeping […]

The Egg Project – Vital Farms Pastured Eggs

Vital Farms Pastured Eggs I’ve heard a lot about these. If you spend any time at all looking at the egg section of Whole Foods Market, some helpful person will walk up and suggest the Vital Farms eggs. If you ask “Why” you’ll get some sort of answer along the lines of “Well, they’re the […]


What’s For Dinner? – Basil, Bacon and Caramelized Onion Stuffed Mushrooms

UPC’s Basil, Bacon and Caramelized Onion Stuffed Mushrooms Inspiration can come from a lot of different places, for a lot of different things. I love it when inspiration strikes me, and I am most definitely the kind of guy who will pull over to the side of the road to take a picture or write […]

What’s For Lunch? Smoked Salmon Bento Box

UPC’s Smoked Salmon Bento Box Ok, I’ll admit it… I’m an addict! I’m an unmitigated food addict. It’s always been my “drug of choice,” so to speak, and that hasn’t changed one iota over the years. And I love it!! “I’m UPC, and I’m an addict.” “Welcome UPC.” All jokes (mostly) aside, these Bento-Box lunches […]


What’s For Dinner? Baked Vegetable-Mustard-Marinade Chicken

UPC’s Vegetable Mustard Marinade Chicken I’ve had a hectic couple of days! On Sunday I wrote what I had hoped would be a rousing response to a comment I received on a “4 Steps to Successfully Eating Out” post I wrote many months ago. I called my response “Am I Really Allergic To Wheat?” It’s […]

What’s For Dinner? Slow-Cooked Smoked Babyback Ribs

UPC’s Slow-Cooked Smoked Babyback Ribs I’ve been slowly but surely refining my basic process for cooking up a “Smoked” meat dish, in the comfort of your own home using a slow-cooker or crock pot. I consider these ribs to be the final proof of the process for that. So the good news (other than that […]
