These are literally a spiral of pizza joy! Once you start serving these they will disappear faster than you can make more. The following list will make 16 pieces. Ingredients 1 Box, frozen Puff Pastry – I prefer Pepperidge Farm 1 can pizza sauce – I prefer Don Peppino Shredded Mozzarella Cheese – I prefer[…]
This is the first of eight installments of appetizers I made for my wife’s holiday work party. Enjoy. A mostly savory appetizer with touch of sweet that will have your guests clamoring for more. You can (and should) do much of this ahead of time, making it something you can serve hot, fresh and quickly.[…]
Okay. I know I’ve been a little quiet, but I assure you it is not due to laziness, apathy, nor seasonal affective disorder. In fact, I have been quite busy working on something new… a quest if you will. […]
They say variety is the spice of life.
Back in October I had the pleasure of being a part of a variety show here in Charlotte North Carolina. called Chevy Does Charlotte.
The name might suggest it has something to do with cars, but in fact “Chevy” is a person, and she is the organizer of this event which occurs 2-3 times a year here in the Queen City. She is the one at the beginning of the video introducing me.
The show was made up of musicians, poets, comedians, an expert on local paranormal activity and yours truly… a storyteller.
The theme of the event was “Do you believe?” My story was titled, “Do you believe diamonds are forever?” It isn’t what you think, but to find out you’ll have to watch the video. […]
This past weekend I had the honor of sharing the stage with seven very talented storytellers. The stories told ran the gamut from silly, to strange, to deep.
I told a story that has been brewing inside me for the better part of a decade. If you watch the video below you will see why this story was hard for me to write, and even more difficult to perform.
I have now been a public facing storyteller for the better part of five years. If there is one thing I have learned it is this… a well-told story has a far reaching effect on those who hear it, and you will never know who you will touch and in what ways.
So, please invest the nine minutes it will take to watch the video, and pass it along to anyone who you think will appreciate the message.
Ah, the holidays. Last week we hosted friends from out of town, and had thirteen around the Thanksgiving table. In fewer than two weeks, we’re having more than 150 in our home for my wife’s holiday work party. Then on December 22, I’m traveling 750 miles, north into the snow, with four teenagers for Christmas.
Suffice it to say… it is a busy time of year.
So, with all this going on I figured, why not commit to two different live storytelling events in one week?
That’s right, this week I am performing three times at two different events. If you are in Charlotte NC, I enthusiastically encourage you to come out to at least one and maybe all. The details are below: […]
