St. Patrick’s Day is always a celebration in this city. Not only is there a very strong Irish heritage and presence in Buffalo, but everyone and their brother is Irish on this weekend. In fact, the St. Patrick’s Day parade here is the 3rd largest in New York state. It stretches [...]
I think it’s time to declare February as Bean Month, at least in the LKBF kitchen. Don’t worry, I already confirmed that there is no conflict with an actual National Bean celebration. The closest holiday is National Baked Bean month, and that’s all the way in July. For some reason, we’ve been on a bean [...]
Tis the season for a big-ol’ hearty bowl of chili. But for some reason, I’m just not a huge fan of the traditional tomato-based, ground beef and big red kidney bean kind of chili. Maybe it’s because I’ve never found a beefy chili recipe that I’ve really enjoyed. Or maybe it’s because I still have [...]
Whether it be for snacking or an actual meal, I just can’t pass up using the crockpot on football Sundays. Crockpot cooking ensures tasty food and great results with very little work required. This means more time watching the pre-game festivities and less time in the kitchen. Everyone wins! Here are some of my favorite [...]
I can’t believe 2013 is just a few hours away! Where did 2012 go? What are you looking forward to in the new year? What resolutions are you’re committing to or what goals you’re trying to meet? Sadly, I’ve never been any good at resolutions. So, I’m making goals instead. First on the list is growing this blog [...]

Hey, it can’t always been homemade three course meals and picture perfect desserts, although that would definitely [...]
Unfortunately, some Sundays I don’t have the time to make a bunch of snacks and sit around to watch football all day. Booooo! I hate those Sundays when real life gets in the way. It’s been super crazy and busy around the Big Flavors household, and this weekend is just jam-packed with other things [...]
I know there are a lot of people out there who wish they could always have a home cooked meal, but feel they just don’t have the time to cook. Instead, they resort to ordering take-out or running through the drive-thru on their way home from work. I get it. I mean, [...]
1. I wish days were more than 24 hours long.
2. If only I had a third arm.
Ok, so everybody should be raising their hand right now. Personally, I think these two things at least once a week. It [...]
Are you ready for week 2 of football? I am! Well, kind of. See, it’s this team I have been rooting for my whole life. The Bills. Let’s just say the 2012 season really didn’t start off with a bang. It’s just so hard to watch, and somehow ruins my whole Sunday. And, I [...]
