Working on Vegetable Beef Soup for the pressure cooker – coming soon!
Ugh, what a day. Videos not working out, hard drive troubles, manufacturing defects on new equipment. One of those “If it wasn’t for bad luck, I’d have no luck at all” kind of days. Penne pasta post coming soon – when I can get at the pictures on my hard drive. I’ve got a backup, and a backup to the backup…but I may need a new drive to restore the backups. Grr. (Luckily, this picture was synced to iCloud, so I could post it from my iPad.)
Working on a new recipe…penne with sausage and peppers is coming soon.
Testing a recipe – lollipop drumsticks in the pressure cooker. Coming soon! The DadCooksDinner limited edition t-shirt is available through Thursday, September 29th at 11PM. If you want one, don’t forget to order! Click here to check them out. [Teespring.com]

A little sausage gravy with biscuits for breakfast today. Recipe here: Sausage Gravy.
Saturday Night dinner – grilled shrimp skewers.
I spent most of the afternoon yesterday trimming and sectioning a packer brisket from my friends over at Certified Angus Beef. I’ve got so much beef, and a reminder of how skilled butchers are with their knives. I have good knife skills…for a home chef. A couple of pressure cooker beef brisket recipes will be coming your way soon…
This picture is showing off my brother Pat’s culinary talents. He smoked a whole 12-pound brisket for about 20 hours. (This pic is after about 12 hours of cooking). It was amazing – and the brisket enchiladas he made with the leftovers may have been even better…
My brother Matt was busy at the cottage last week…stay tuned for more…
The kids still have a few weeks left until school starts, but my summer vacation is over today. Sigh. Back to the daily grind.
The Dad Cooks Dinner tour of the East Coast is over…but vacation is not! We’re back in Ohio, spending time at our cottage on Lake Erie and recovering from our travel by relaxing at the beach.
Having a great time in Downeast Maine – and eating lots of lobster. Lots and lots of lobster. (Steamed lobster, lobster rolls, lobster stew…I love it all.)
We’re on the road, visiting Montreal, and I had to visit a market – specifically, Jean-Talon Market. Montreal Smoked Meat is next on the itinerary – wish me luck!
Have I mentioned before that my kids are on a Teriyaki kick? My local grocery store has their “seven steaks of summer” promotion going on right now, and had a great deal on porterhouse steaks…how could I pass it up? (I used this recipe – Grilled Teriyaki Ribeye Steaks, Reverse Seared – but with porterhouses.)
Happy Father’s Day, everyone! I’m hoping to grill my Father’s Day dinner, if the rain holds out…
Saturday Night Dinner – chicken, brined and smoked with a mix of hickory and apple wood. Why a mix? There’s no special flavor I’m trying to make – i’m just using up the bottom of a bag of apple wood chunks.
Everyone’s got to know their role – mine is to help out at the grill when needed. My friend Brian had a bunch of us over for dinner, and served these marvelous Korean style short ribs. He needed an extra hand at the grill, so of course I volunteered. Great ribs, great friends, great pictures, and grilling? It was the perfect evening. Thanks, Brian!
Our Memorial Day BBQ has started – Natalie’s helping me get the ribs on the grill. Happy Memorial Day, everyone!
Grilling season is upon us! I love when I catch some flames in my grilling pictures. Here’s the second best burger flareup picture from my Jalapeno Burgers shoot last week. I included the best one in the Pinterest tower image I added to that post, but it was tough to leave this one out…so I’m sharing it now.
Food truck rally! Every spring, our local high school band holds a food truck rally as a fundraiser. My favorite kind of fundraiser – food trucks!
As this posts, I’m flying over Missouri, on my way back from the Everything Food Conference. (Assuming everything is going well. If not, I’m probably stuck at DFW airport, wondering if I’ll ever leave. Wish me luck!) I had a great time with my fellow food bloggers, taking classes, talking shop, comparing notes, muttering darkly about Facebook and Google “changing the algorithm…again…”. I learned a lot, ate a lot, and my brain is full – I’m ready to come home. And yes, I’m cheating by making “PicOfTheWeek” a collage. Pics of the week? I couldn’t pick just one. If you want to see more from my trip, check out my Instagram – that’s my default “Pictures while I’m on the road” posting place. I’ll leave you with my favorite shot of the week, a time lapse of the sponsor booths right after they opened the floodgates and let us at them: Visiting the sponsor booths at #EFC2017 – lots of great brands to meet with and samples to try. #somanysamplessolittletime A post shared by Mike Vrobel – Food Blogger …
