Everyone needs a way to relax themselves at the end of a long day. Some choose television, some a bowl of ice cream, some a good book, and others a nice adult beverage. Before one lays his/her head to rest it is due time to reflect on the actions of the previous hours and ponder what one will do with those to come. Recently I've been spending lots of nights contemplating many aspects of my life, and on one recent evening I enjoyed this lovely beverage to get the thoughts flowing. Whiskey is as good as any therapist if you ask me.

The month of February has long come and gone. (Can you believe it's May already?!?!) Along with it was my friend Anna's annual Oscar party. It is a yearly tradition among our group of friends where we drink, talk about all the movies we still haven't seen, critique celebrity outfits, and wonder why "How to Train Your Dragon" didn't win all the categories. After last year's lamb meatballs I knew that I couldn't disappoint the hungry party goers. This year I brought along herbed goat cheese shortbread crackers and let's just say that my award-winning Oscar party snack streak continues.
Why separate the cheese from the crackers when you can combine them into one?

It's hard to find motivation to prepare any food for yourself at home after you've spent 10+ hours on your feet in a hot kitchen cooking food for others. That's where the inspiration for this newest series of posts—Chef Meals—came from. The vast majority of the time I rely on whatever food joint is on my way home to provide sustenance, but I occasionally make something for myself at home after work (albeit rarely).

Who doesn't love a good omelet? The eggs act as the perfect carrier for whatever ingredients you wish to stuff on the inside. This recipe features some leftover pulled pork, cheddar cheese, and barbecue sauce. Pork, cheese, eggs, and barbecue sauce? Sounds like a #winner to me. PLUS, now the great folks at OXO have made it even easier to make all the egg pockets you crave with their latest tool—the Flip & Fold Omelet Turner.
