I love nuts, both as a snack, and also in my cooking and baking.  For just plain snacking, I love the blue diamond smoked almonds, honey-roasted peanuts, or roasted salted peanuts in the shell.  I could eat any of those all day.  Cashews and pistachios are also favorites of mine when I can get them.  I used to have friends in Tennessee that always had bowls of pistachios in their house.  When I'd visit, I'd stuff them into my pockets, earning me the nickname of Squirrel.  Macadamias are awesome, when I feel like splurging a bit for them.  For cooking and baking, I tend to use walnuts, pecans, or almonds the most.  And I never use any of those nuts in my dishes without toasting them first.  Ever!  A salad of spinach, candied walnuts, bleu cheese, and thinly-sliced apples, dressed with a good vinaigrette using either balsamic or a good red wine vinegar is an awesome side to whatever hunk of meat I feel like making.  Right now, there's not much point in keeping bleu cheese around since my wife won't eat it due to pregnancy.

Getting a couple of good knifes, cutting boards and taking a knife class really upped my game.  going at a sink full of vegies is a great way to transition from the work day - a lot of music playing in the background or listening to John Oliver makes it an event.

any other nut  & seed eaters out there?   In the last year or so I have transitioned to including a bowl of mixed nuts as a meal/snack into my diet a few times a week.  Pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds cashews, peanuts, raisins and then some larger nuts - hazel, brazil, pecans, walnuts, Almonds.

Maybe add some chocolate chips and its quit a filling and nutritious snack.   just the right amount of each.  Any one else into nuts?

@Nick. That's sounds awesome! I love game. I made this the other night and I love it.

Cap'n' Crunch Chicken (I usually double the recipe since my daughter eats it all)

1lbs Chicken or chicken strips

Mix in one bowl:
2 cups Cap'n Crunch (then crush. I found zip lock bags and rolling pin work great)
1/2 cup Corn Flakes (then Crush)
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp salt

Another bowl:
1 egg beaten
1 cup milk

Dip chicken strips in wash and then coat with the Cap'n Crunch mixture and oil fry till golden brown.

Venison Chili Recipe

This was an experiment that went well. I received about 5 pound of venison from a friend recently that he prepared for me after a hunting trip. About two pounds of it was ground, so I decided to make some chili with it. My girlfriend doesn't like kidney beans, and most other beans for that matter, so I used the one bean she likes, garbanzo beans (I thought I would prefer kidney beans, but after eating the chili, I'm not so sure. The garbanzos soak up the chili flavor and add a good texture.) Anyway, here is the recipe that I used.

1 Pounds Ground Venison
1 Can of Garbanzo Beans
1 Small Can of Corn (11oz)
8 Oz of Tomato Juice (Or 1 Pint if you like it juicier)
1 Can of Tomato Sauce
1 Can of Diced Tomatoes
1 Small Red Onion, Chopped
1 Clove Garlic, Minced
1 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
1 Tsp Dave's Insanity Sauce
1 Packet of Chili Mix (Hot)

Mix everything in a crockpot and cook on low for about 6 to 10 hours. If you get it all together before you leave for work in the morning it will be ready when you get home.

I think there should be more to manly cooking than grilling and one-pot chowdown conveniences. Each of us inherits a culinary history that is part of our respective heritages, our traditions, and our sense of belonging. Food means something, and shouldn't simply be reduced to the most expedient way of nourishing the body. Men should cook, but men should cook properly. We should embrace the opportunity to create, to share, and to practice those arts that our forebears practiced. That, my friends, leads to manly cooks, and to manly meals.

"+100 on this. Exactly like setting a budget, you need to get real about where you expend your time and energy (not where you think you do, or wish you did, but actually do).  Then you can figure out strategies to work through it. "
