How to Properly Cook Rack of Lamb

One of the most impressive meals you can make for a date or that group of people that enjoy and share food porn is a rack of lamb.

Easy Recipe for Rack of Lamb:


1 rack of lamb (typically around 1-2 lbs)

Kosher salt

Fresh cracked pepper 

Fresh bunch of rosemary

Fresh bunch of thyme

Fresh chives 


Stoneground mustard 


Pre-heat your oven to 475 degrees F.  On a large baking pan, line with parchment paper and place your rack of lamb on it. Add a dash of your salt and pepper to every surface of your lamb. In a small mixing bowl, mix about a table spoon of mayo, a tablespoon of your stoneground mustard. Freshly chop approximately 1-2 tablespoons of your herbs and mix well with your may/mustard mix. Keep in mind that rosemary is very strong so be careful how much you use. 

Using a spatula, spread your mixture all over your rack of lamb. You are looking for a even coat around the meat. Bake for approximately 10 minutes. Then, drop the temp to around 400 degrees F and bake another 10-12 minutes. Immediately remove from oven and allow to rest for another 10 minutes. Cut and serve on a large platter and garnish with any leftover herbs to impress.

Avoid These Foods that Screw With Your Sexual Drive and Performance 


One of my favorite things to talk about in this blog is what boosts sexual performance and sex drive. But hey, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, so today’s blog is going to cover what you should avoid putting in your body at all costs.

Here is a list of foods and technically, drinks that will screw up your sexual drive in the worst way. The first one is a no-brainer for any guy that has experienced liquor dick but the rest might surprise you.


Well, too much alcohol which for most guys means more than three drinks. If you plan on hooking up or having sex later in the evening, cut yourself off. Excessive alcohol can cause premature ejaculation and erectile difficulties also known as the inability to “keep it up.”


Let’s say you’re at an asian eatery and enjoying some sushi and decide to have some soy sauce with your meal. In moderation, sure. However, skip the edamame. Soy has high levels of estrogen in it which is not what you want in your body as a guy.


That’s right, those breath mints you are choking down that contain menthol are not doing you any favors. Menthol is known to cause a drop in testosterone which will do you no favors in the love-making department. Instead, opt for the flavors that don’t have mint—there are plenty.


It might be tempting to drink coffee so that you will be more awake and able to do it all night long but in reality like having alcohol—excessive amounts could lead to nervousness and your ability to perform.

Diet drinks and sodas

Sure, you want to avoid sugar but you also want your soda. Most diet beverages contain the artificial sweetener, aspartame, which messes with serotonin levels which mess with your libido (hers too.)


If your normal go-to at the movies for candy is licorice sub it out for a mint-free confection. Licorice contains glycyrrhizin (try saying that one time) which naturally occurs in the fun snack but also naturally inhibits a guy’s libido.


It’s a bland-ass cereal that leads to bland-ass sex which is the theory behind the man who invented it in the first place. Dr. John Harvey Kellogg decided that spicy foods would be no bueno for men since it inflamed their sexual desires, so he decided to make this awful-tasting cereal. We now know that sex is actually good for your health, so move onto something with taste and fuego.

Now that you know that you shouldn’t eat, here is what you should eat to boost your sexual stamina and drive. You’re welcome.

6 Vitamins to Boost Your Sex Drive and Stamina

6 Vitamins to Boost Your Sex Drive and Stamina

If you happen to be reading this particular blog, you are no doubt in search of how to boost your libido and stamina while between the sheets. No one likes a bad performance, so we’ve compiled a list of the vitamins and supplements that you need to add to your diet for a more lasting sexual impact. Plus, these vitamins are ACTUALLY beneficial for your overall health.

Before we get to the good stuff, here are a couple of disclaimers. 1. Vitamin products are considered dietary supplements by the FDA and are regulated as such.  2. Before beginning ANY new diet or exercise program or regimen you should ALWAYS consult with your physician first.

–Vitamin A.   We might as well start A to Z and Vitamin A is the right place to boost your sex hormone production. Vitamin A aids in stable reproductive cycles in women and sperm production in men.

–Vitamin B3.    Did somebody say energy? If you are short on stamina you will get the burst of energy that you need with vitamin B3 including a rush of blood flow throughout your WHOLE body. Plus, it aids in skin and nerve health.

–Vitamin B6.    Speaking of estrogen and testosterone, this vitamin helps produce more red blood cells, dopamine and serotonin. If you do have issues with sperm count, Vitamin B6 is the supplement for you!

–Vitamin B12.    We are not even out of the ‘B’ vitamins just yet, and the best is yet to come. B12 is known for enhancing sex drive and penile erection thanks to enlarging something else—blood vessels!

–Vitamin C.    If you’re having trouble getting in the mood Vitamin C is your supplement of choice plus it helps with joints, stress and your immune system.

–Vitamin E.   In terms of vitamins, this one is considered the most beneficial to your sex life. A steady diet of Vitamin E helps heighten blood flow to your genitalia AND can make you look younger. Double win!

New Study Explains Why Some People Turn into A’Holes When They Drink


We’ve all got that one friend or as I like to call them, party asses. You invite them out for a few beers. Things are going well maybe you even decide to order a few appetizers and start texting more friends to see if they want to meet up with you.

You think you are having a great debate over whether or not Heather Locklear still has fake tits. All of the sudden, shit gets personal and you find yourself defending anything in your buddy’s path from why you wear patterned socks to whether or not you should punch your boss in the face.

The night ends abruptly because if it doesn’t it will end badly. You’re scratching your head trying to figure out why he gets this way and what the hell did you say to set him off again. Turns out, there is a reason behind it and it’s more than just those beers he threw back.

A new study released by the University of New South Wales in Australia suggests that just a couple of drinks can interfere with your prefrontal cortex—also known as the part of the brain that keeps you from doing something stupid or turning into a dickhead for no reason.

Using an MRI, researchers looked at the brain activity of 50 healthy, young guys after they had two vodka drinks. They were looking for blood flow to the prefrontal cortex. For those that did not have the cocktails the blood flow was greater to that area. And just to be sure they had them engage with a computer game that was competitive.

So yeah, the next time you are out and you see this coming on show them this blog in a non-threatening way, of course.

President’s Day: 12 Badass and Manly Facts About our Past Presidents 

12 Badass and Manly Facts About our Past Presidents

This coming Monday marks President’s Day and I thought it was a good idea to remind everyone that the holiday is not about furniture sales. Instead, I have dug up the most badass facts of our country’s past POTUS’.

John F. “Jack” Kennedy.  The Kennedys have a long political dynasty and a long history of hooking up with the hottest women in the world. In fact, FBI tapes later revealed that he didn’t just hook up with Marilyn Monroe. He was known to have bedded Angie Dickinson, Marlene Dietrich, Jayne Mansfield, lots of strippers and pretty much tapped every ass working in The White House.

Lyndon Baines Johnson.  LBJ was not nearly as good looking as JFK but he certainly had his share of hookups as well. He was reportedly smarter and more discreet about it and had an alert system set up in the Oval Office so he wouldn’t be literally caught with his pants down.

Thomas Jefferson.   Jefferson was notorious for having affairs with his female slaves. He reportedly carried on a thirty-eight-year affair with Sally Hemings. Interestingly enough, Sally was not just his slave but was the half-sister of his deceased wife.

Martin Van Buren.   Van Buren was the eighth President of the United States and served from 1837-1841. Like most Presidents he decided to document his legacy while in office by writing an autobiography. Some have speculated that he did not like his wife of 12 years after failing to mention her zero times in his autobiography.

John Tyler.    If you thought JFK had stamina, he had nothing on our 10th POTUS. Tyler won the title for fathering the most kids. After having eight kids with his first wife, he went to have seven with his second wife and he was in his 70s by the time his last kid was born. Busy guy.

Ronald Reagan.   When you think of the eighties it’s impossible not to remember President Ronald Reagan. Pre politics while he was still an actor, he won an award for the Most Nearly Perfect Male Figure. Not sure if that honor still exists today, but way to show those guns!

John Quincy Adams.   Adams enjoyed the many pleasures and luxuries in The White House. His favorite was quite simple, he loved to skinny dip in the Potomac every morning around 5 to relieve the stress associated with the job.

Andrew Jackson.    Jackson had quite the reputation while in office. In spite of his popularity he was the first President that an assassination attempt was made on and after the gun misfired, he chased the perp with a walking stick. He also participated in over 100 duels. One duel left a man dead and several others happened all in the name of defending his wife’s good name after she reportedly married him without divorcing from her first husband. He spent most of his life with two bullets still lodged in his body—one on his chest and one in his arm. That’s pretty badass.

Gerald Ford.   Believe it or not, President Ford put himself through college working as a model and later as a Forest Ranger at Yellowstone. Basically, a real-life Ranger Rick.

Calvin Coolidge.   Coolidge was a bit of a prankster. His favorite stunt was to set off all the buttons as his desk and then either hide or run like hell. After everyone lost their minds looking for him, he would jump out and declare that he wanted to make sure they were working.

Warren Harding.   This 29th President of the United States liked to take risks which usually involved gambling. During one of the many heated games of poker, he bet The White House china and lost.

John Adams.  Our second President was no stranger to playing dirty politics. When running against Jefferson his red meat and propaganda included rape, murder and incest if they voted for Jefferson instead of Adams. In the end, the became best bros and both died on the same day and just hours apart on July 4th.

One last fun fact about ALL OUR Presidents: not one of them was a single child. 

Could McDonald’s Fries be the Answer to Baldness

Could McDonald's Fries be the Answer to Baldness

A new study claims that McDonald’s salty, iconic fries could curb or at least help with hair loss and male baldness, according to Japanese researchers.

The study claims that it’s not the salt or potato but the oil that the fries are cooked in are the active ingredient. Apparently, some miracle method contains a chemical called dimethylpolysiloxane which is…you guessed it in the oil of those delicious fries at one of the world’s most-recognizable fast food joints.

A little known fact is that dimethylpolysiloxane is also found in silly putty, breast implants and that caulk you use on the tub.

Before you run out and start chowing down on some fries this study has only been tested on rats and President Donald Trump is on a steady diet of McDonald’s cuisine and still has to fight hair loss and maintain his quiff with the prescription drug Propecia. And making matters worse was an embarrassing video that surfaced this week of President Trump’s extent of hair loss. 

In fact, I have fought the good fight of male pattern baldness and whether I should throw in the towel on my hair. After a month on Rogaine, I found out that I would rather be bald than not be able to sexually perform at my peak. You can read the whole Rogaine story here

Unless you have the metabolism to support it, avoid eating shitty fries on a daily basis or you could be battling baldness and a big gut. For now, watch for the rats staying on or leaving the sinking ship.

Millennials Not Having Sex Because of Microwaves

Millennials Not Having Sex Because of Microwaves

If you are millennial and not having as much sex as Gen Xers, there’s apparently a reason for that. Several, yes…several studies are floating around that point to a plethora of factors. As a Gen X’er, I have a hard time (no pun intended) understanding how the hell this happened. 

One new study from a millennial researcher named, Jean Twenge blames this lack of sexual drive on having copter parents (see helicopter parents) hovering around millennials their whole lives. Other factors include longer life spans and technology, according to new data from Macquarie Research. 

And it’s not just sex, it’s drugs, drinking and maybe even rock’ n’ roll. Condom sales have plummeted but not because this generation is throwing caution to the wind. No, it’s because they couldn’t be bothered to put down their smartphones and put the moves on a girl. Not helping matters is that most millennials are not only living longer but living with their parents longer. Nothing kills the mood like bringing home a girl from a club with a shared wall between the very people that created you in the same manner. 

Another study released last year claims that it’s the fault of video games. However, I remember a time when I would play Atari till I had blisters on my hand and permanent impressions on my thumbs. And I’m pretty sure I developed the early signs of carpal tunnel syndrome as the direct result of playing Nintendo not when I entered the workforce and needed to ask someone for a freaking perch for my wrist. 

Truth is, maybe we are ALL just evolving into a more instant gratification society. I remember getting pissed off and yelling at the microwave when it took longer than 3 minutes to burn up the processed cheese inside my pepperoni Hot Pockets. Before the microwave, the commitment was a minimum of at least 10 minutes on the stove or in the oven.  

Now apply this idea to dating or trying to get a girl to notice you without a text. It was a shitload of work. Imagine walking up to a girl in the late 80s or early 90s and handing her a Poloraid of yourself with stickers all over it. She would have either done the following: a. act creeped out and start backing away from her locker. b. laugh like hell and show the picture to her friends while they all burst out into snorted giggling. c. ignored it and set it on the shelf of her locker with a shrug. 

Getting a date was never an option. Today? You can snap a photo of yourself on your phone and put cartooned rabbit ears and a nose on it and you just might get laid. You know, cause’ it’s really cute. 

In all honesty, we don’t have the answers as to why this happening. For now, I’ll just keep blaming the microwave.
