TJ Dogs (aka Bacon-Wrapped Mexican Hot Dogs)

You guys! Just because you eat healthy or follow Weight Watchers (as I do) doesn't mean you're only allowed to ogle scrumptious food that makes your mouth water. You can eat it too! If you've ever lived in San Diego you probably need no explanation for the delicacy known as the TJ Dog. But for …

Pineapple Swiss & Insta-Pot Teriyaki Chicken Sliders

Dieting sucks. I guess that's why the health experts don't recommend dieting, but instead changing your lifestyle. For the past five years, I have been on and off Weight Watchers.

I’ve heard stories from Craig's Grandma Blean – and echoed by …

Greek Breakfast Casserole To Begin Your Day

Wow! It’s been some time since my last blog post, but I’ve returned to start sharing recipes and stories once again. My life has changed quite a bit over my five-year hiatus from Game Day Grub. My brother got married and the Ingersols happily added Michelle to the family. I lost my last living grandparent …
