What’s For Dinner: Spicy Grilled Chicken Wings

These chicken wings were delicious. You can use regular paprika instead of the hot to make this recipe more kid-friendly. Try these this long weekend as part of a dinner or a great snack! Among the many virtues of chicken wings, perhaps the best of all is the very high ratio of crispy, super-flavorful skin to meat. To take advantage of this, we toss the wings with a spicy herb mixture right after they come off the grill, so the...

What’s For Dinner: Easy Memphis-Style Barbecued Pork Spareribs

You can cook ribs any way you want. You can also put them in a slow cooker, bake them in a sauce or stick them straight on the BBQ. We found this recipe in Grill It! and thought we'd give it a try. It was a bit spicy for the kids, but that can be easily adjusted by minimizing the spicy spices. NB: I used my regular propane BBQ to do the last bit, we don't have a charcoal BBQ.   This is for those of you who don’t have the patience...

What’s For Dinner: Penne a la Vodka

This recipe is a family favourite! It's my wife's specialty, but she was out one night and I took a stab at it. Penne a la vodka is quick, easy and, most importantly, filling! It's great to feed lots of people, delicious as leftovers and if you like bacon and garlic you're in for a treat! The best part is that it takes the same amount of time to cook the pasta as it does to prepare the sauce.   Penne A La...

What’s For Dinner: Grilled Flank Steak

Flank steak is a cheaper cut of meat that is great for the cottage - it feeds a lot of people, takes little preparation and cooks up quickly! We like to marinate the meat at home (so we don't have to bring all the spices up to the cottage) and can leave it for a few days before cooking. Don't be afraid of what you've heard about flank steak, with a little time marinating, it can be incredibly flavourful and tender. This recipe is perfect for...

What’s For Dinner: Pork Souvlaki

My wife has been hounding me for a while now to do a blog on food. I have the tendency to make pretty awesome meals, although some might say sandwiches are my specialty, I fancy myself a proper chef. I've decided to put together some of my favourite barbecuing recipes, and will be putting them together in a series called "What's for Dinner." I've tried to simplify them to make it easy for everybody to do. If you can't do it, just pop 'round...

I’m a Ford Man

I’m a Ford man, I really am. We are a Ford family. Growing up in the U.K. Ford was THE car. We had a Ford Cortina (purple), followed by a Ford Cortina station wagon. My dad had a Ford Transit cargo van and my first car was a red 1976 Ford Fiesta. When I was 18 my dad and I bought a 1959 Ford Zodiac with the bench seats & column shift gears. I still have it. It never came with seat belts. Chicks dug it. My Ford Family with my...

Why my minivan smells …

What do you get when you cross Pringles chips, 2 bottles of milk, a two-year-old and a car drive from the cottage? You get a big mess. And Do It All Daddy comes to the rescue! We had a great weekend at the cottage, even if it was too cold for the beach and too wet to go outside. Instead we spent the day watching 101 Dalmatians, Little Mermaid, Bolt and Snow White. The sun decided to come out as we were leaving, and the drive home was full...

Exactly how much can I do? Ask my wife…

You might be wondering why they call me Do It All Daddy. This is my first post since the launch of the website, and you might be thinking, “If he’s the Do It All Daddy, then why isn’t he blogging often?” I do it ALL…that’s the reason. I’m too busy. Here’s a prime example of why I’m the Do It All Daddy: I’m working these crazy European hours - 2 am to 5 pm - out of my home office. By 7 am I’ve already done 5 hours...

Do it all Daddy

“Oh bloody hell” was my first thought when I had no option but to blog on my own site. Not another thing I don’t have time for. After thinking about it I realized that maybe this could be the only opportunity I have to rant about funny things that happen to a publisher of a baby mag. So, my blog will be the life and times of a sleep deprived do it all daddy who believes that all mommies are sexy, no matter what shape or size. I love...
