Recipe: Beef Stew with Bacon, Onion and Sweet Potatoes

I will admit that the photo doesn't do this beef stew justice.  Look!  I may know my way around a kitchen, but I certainly don't know my way around a camera.  This homeboy isn't Olan Mills.  But homeboy knows a good recipe when he sees one.  And during our lovely (and by "lovely" I mean "ridiculous") snow/ice storm the other night, I worked my slow cooker like it was at a Zumba class!  :)  This beef stew recipe, with bacon and onions and sweet potatoes, will make you wanna get a ladle and slap someone straight upside the head.  It's comfort food to the nth degree.  Sweet. Filling.  Foodgasmic.   LOOK!

The Perfect Valentine’s Day Drink: The Vanity Cocktail

Go ahead.  Make fun of me.  All my friends do.  I can't stand the taste of beer.  I cannot stand scotch.  I absolutely hate whiskey (unless it's that new Fireball stuff which tastes like melted Red Hots and make my toes curl).  If I am going to drink, I am going to drink "girly" drinks.  There!  I said it.  I own it.  I am a lightweight and if an alcoholic beverage is going to penetrate these lips it better be fruity and fun.  If you think that the Vanity Cocktail looks as good as I think it does, keep reading.  Because I have the recipe . . .

Chad Forces His Cruise Friend Leisa to Eat Raw Meat [Photos]

Here's one thing you likely know about me or at least need to know if you didn't already.  I love adventure.  Of all kinds.  I love to travel, try crazy things (some death-defying) and sample all sorts of wacky, potentially stomach-churning foods.  And, here's another thing you need to know.  If you travel with me, the odds are in your favor that you're gonna be trying a whole bunch of wacky stuff too.  Just ask my friend Leisa, who just went with me on an 8-night cruise in the Southern Caribbean.  Every night at dinner, I found the most bizarre item on the menu and tried it.  Then, I made Leisa try it too.  And thank goodness I had my camera along for the ride because THIS is what happened when Leisa met carpaccio.
