I’m not a chef, but I love to cook. I blame the generations of the Italian woman in my family for this. They pretty much made me have to like cooking. I wasn’t given much of a choice. “How are you going to meet a girl, if you can’t cook?” my Grandma would always say.So, to make sure I will be in a relationship someday, I learned how to cook and sometimes, I read blogs like www.thehomemakersjournal.com for good recipes. And it’s all secret family recipes. Why the secret? I have no idea, maybe it just sounds cool. I swear one of my family’s “secret recipe” is written on the side of a Barillo Spaghetti box, but don’t tell my Grandma-ma.

Football Season! For my team, that means lots of fun, excitement, games and outings. One of our favorite places to treat our team is Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen. Why? Simply put, their food is the best. These guys play rough on and off the field and deserve a great treat on game day – win or lose on the field, we always win with a great meal from Cheddar’s Scratch Kitchen. What was most exciting is our local restaurant was decked on it fun, Halloween decor. With so many selections and such a huge group, we were able to dine on some amazing “made-from-scratch” appetizers and meals that were nothing short of delicious. These boys were excited and ready to chow down on some delicious grub. We had a group of 18 total and you will be surprised at the bill total.

Must-Have Equipment For Your Restaurant

Starting up a restaurant is a great business idea, especially if you have the talent for cooking (or know somebody who does) that will captivate customers. When you get into the restaurant business, you’ll quickly find out that there are certain pieces of equipment that are absolutely necessary for the food preparation that you or your staff will have to do.It’s important that you build a checklist of items that you’ll need first before you even start checking out suppliers of the equipment and appliances. That means that you also have to decide on at least a temporary menu since the type of food you make will go a long way in determining the kind of equipment you’ll need on hand. But aside from the specific items, most restaurants need a core of certain equipment and appliances before they can open up for business.
