Quantcast

A memorable backyard barbeque isn't complete without the smell of tangy barbeque sauce on the breeze, but A1 Steak Sauce had the genius idea of bringing it into your living room when they announced three new meat-inspired candle scents.

Just in time for Father's day, the sauce company released three limited edition candles on a special site inspired by the food their sauce improves: "Original Meat," "Backyard BBQ," and the elegantly put "Burger."

Cooking-Up Memories with Pampered Chef Kids...

This Rock Father Kitchen feature has been brought to you in partnership with Pampered Chef

As we close the book on 2016 and enter 2017, now is the perfect time to make a renewed commitment to cooking at home. Personally, I always avoid saying that anything is a "resolution," but I do like taking stock of things and refocusing for each new year. Eating at home is important, and like so many, we do stray the path, but always come back to teaching our children the joy and importance of making their own meals (and memories). The Kids' Cooking Set by Pampered Chef is a new addition to our kitchen, and one that embraces kids' seemingly natural love of two things: pizza and cookies.

THE ROCK FATHER loves Mac & Cheese, so he would’ve written about KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese Dinner even if it wasn’t a sponsored post for Socialstars #Youknowyouloveit

As parents there are quite a few traditions that my wife and I have carried over from our own childhoods, putting a modern spin on them and sharing with our daughters. Most of those things could be considered more pop-cultural - the movies, the toys, the games but there aren’t many of are traditions that involve food. On the surface, that might seem a little odd, both of us coming from relatively large extended families, rooted in food-centric cultures of Italian and German heritage. Times have changed, as have tastes. And what we know about the things we eat - but one childhood tradition that we have carried on is just about as American as they come and continues to get better with age: KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese Dinner.

There’s a lot of benefits to doing what I do, and the warmer months are where that largely becomes apparent. While the Rock & Roll Handbook clearly states that one should never wake up prior to noon, that’s doesn’t exactly work here, despite being “The Rock Father.” With my wife out the door at 6:30am and two little girls to get rolling for school, I’m up early - but working from home means that sometimes I can move “dinner” up a few hours, or just make something special for lunch. Grilled sausage at noon on a weekday, paired with KRAFT Macaroni & Cheese? That can happen.

March Frozen Food MonthMarch is a month where there's a lot of interesting things going on. Mardi Gras and Saint Patrick's Day, Girl Scouts Day, I am in Control Day (yes, it's real), Be Nasty Day (also real), and even Middle Name Pride Day (that one, too) all stake a claim here in March. There's also several month-long celebrations like Music in Our Schools Month... and a little bit of mayhem that closes out the calendar with a heavy dose of basketball and brackets. In that spirit, another celebration - March FROZEN FOOD Month - is bringing you #FrozenChefMadness, in partnership with Life of Dad and their Sweet Sixteen Brand Ambassadors (THE ROCK FATHER being one of them). Together, we're gonna hit the hardwood (well, technically, it's laminate here) to share with you some Easy Home Meals that you can make quick and easy. And, if YOU think you have a winning recipe, you'll have a chance to win an $800 Visa Gift Card or other great prizes!
