You Don't Have to Be a Famous Chef to Cook Fabulous Food

One of the reasons I started Man Cave Munchies back in 2012 was due to the fact that most of my
buddies didn't know how to cook.  This meant they routinely trooped over to my house for meals.  What was even funnier was that most of them loved to regale me with what Emeril or Alton Brown had whipped up on TV that week.  My response to this was usually, "Believe it or not, cooking isn't supposed to be a spectator sport.  Instead of getting mad, I decided to get even by creating a video channel dedicated to showing my buddies how to make delicious meals step-be-step.  To make the videos even more appealing, I instituted two rules:
  1. The dishes had to be simple to prepare.
  2. At least 35% of them had to contain beer as an ingredient.

Season 7 Highlights

You may have noticed that after a 2-year hiatus, I've started posting new Man Cave Munchies blogs and videos.  That's because during the last couple of years the traffic coming to my website has gotten to the point where I could no longer ignore it.  Nor could I ignore all my viewers and readers who have been clamoring for me to add more man cave meals, not to mention put together a cookbook that features all my recipes. So, I listened to all you loyal subscribers and decided to resume production of Season 7 starting September 1.

How to Build a Better Burger

By Carl Weiss
It shocks me to see someone order a hamburger in a restaurant.  That's because most restaurants
charge anywhere from $9.99-$14.99 for one these days.  What's even worse is that most of those fifteen dollar burgers aren't anything to write home about.  So too are prepackaged grocery store burgers and fast food burgers that look as though they've been run over by a steam roller.   The bottom line is that one of the cornerstones of North American cuisine has gotten to the point where hardly anybody knows how to make a mouth-watering, stick-to-your-ribs All-American hamburger anymore.
