The Best of 2015 – A Look Back At 406Northlane.com

2015 Top Ten

I’ve been doing these “Best Of” since back in 2010.  I really upped my blogging output this past year but that doesn’t mean I’m happy. There’s still a lot I want to say… just look at my drafts folder! I’m sort of an analytics geek so I really look forward to writing these recap posts. It’s always interesting (to me at least) to see what posts make the list and to see if there are posts … Continue reading

The Definition Of Spoiled?

Who Doesn't Like Filet?

The other night we were having some friends over for a cookout.  Along with our boys, they would be bringing their two girls so the 8 of us sat around on the patio drinking (the adults) and playing (the kids).  I’d prepared some flank steak, salmon (cause the wife won’t touch a piece of red meat), veggies, etc. to be grilled. Earlier in the day I was preparing the flank and G asked me what … Continue reading
