Some people are born controversial, some achieve controversy, and others have controversy thrust upon them.

Oxymoronic Pasta Salad

Y’all are familiar with oxymorons, right? (no, I’m not referring to your neighbor who fires up that buzz saw at 6:30 AM all summer; or your coworker who spilled coffee all over your crucial report; or your Aunt Edna who practically yodelled the news that you were pregnant even […]

Pizza with Pizzaz: Jalapeno Pesto Pizza*

* The HH loved this so much, he thought it needed a more jazzy name. So he came up with “Pesto Fiesta Pizza.” Olé!
