Slim Man Cooks Shrimp with Pesto

A few years ago, I did a little something for the Food Network. They had a series called “Calling All Cooks” and I reached out to them. I was surprised when they called me back and told me they wanted to do a show featuring some of my recipes. One of the recipes the Food Network chose was my grandmother Angela’s signature dish, pasta piselli, which is pasta with a sauce of peas, cauliflower, tomatoes,...

Slim Man Cooks a Wedgie Salad with Roquefort Dressing

My Mom used to make a wedge salad for us knuckleheads. She made her own Russian dressing. It was so good! But Selma Krapoff, our head of Slim Merchandise here at the Slim Shack, doesn’t like Russian dressing. So when I decided to create the Slim Wedgie, I made a Roquefort dressing. You don’t want to piss off Selma! She scares me. You don’t see Roquefort dressings much anymore. There’s probably a reason for that....
