#KingofSoup steakhouse soup

The #KingofSoup Transforms Our Dining Room into a Steakhouse!

I have partnered with Life of Dad and Idahoan® Foods for  this campaign, but my opinions are my own. Like most men, I'm a big steak and potatoes kind of guy. Granted if you ask me what my favorite food is, my first response is probably, "yes." I love it all. Pizza. Sushi. Burgers. Just about anything except olives. But when it comes right down to it, if you plop me in a chair at a decent … [Read More...]

When Did Water Bottle Flipping Become a Thing?

When I was a kid we had plenty of inventive ways to kill time at school or family functions. There was the old three-coins hockey game on the table or the paper football flick game.
