I’m Dave Tappan. I’ve been on the radio for 40+ years starting right out of high school. I’m currently the midday guy on Today’s Country, Q97. I play really good music and talk about the passions in my life, like fishing, golf, working and puttering around the house and food. I love boating and fishing on Lake Shasta (trolling for trout is my favorite), teeing it up at Gold Hills and preparing and cooking great food at home for my wife, two boys and friends. Barbecue, Italian and Mexican food are my favorites. I never met a taco, pizza or a rack of ribs I didn’t love! I am in constant search of the perfect cheeseburger and chicken wings too. I often post my recipes on my blog. I also love watching Giants baseball and the Food Network on one of my 7 tv’s in my house. A game on in the garage is my favorite. My happy place! I enjoy my monthly Friday night poker games and occasional Reno trips with the guys. There I am in a nutshell. Oh, I love peanuts too! I always have a big bucket of them sitting on my desk. Tune in some day. Would it kill ya?

Happy Taco Tuesday! Northern California’s favorite meat is Tri-Tip. Try it for tacos instead of flank or skirt steak. I think it’s damn good!
Here’s a quick and simple recipe that really helps a pound of ground beef, but it’s a helluva lot better than the boxed stuff.
Here’s a sandwich that will definitely find is way to one of the pages in my forthcoming cook book, “If You Don’t Like My Cooking…Go Fork Yourself”
When life gives you lemons…Grill chicken thighs. You could put this Honey-Balsamic glaze on a hammer and it would be good.
Happy Taco Tuesday! I really, really, really, really, really need a fish taco.
Believe it or not, today is National Snuggle a Chicken Day! WTF! I think the only way to snuggle a chicken is to snuggle it in marinara and mozzarella.
The chicken sandwich wars are on. McDonald’s, Wendy’s, KFC, Popeye’s and Shake Shack are all battling to become the chicken sandwich king. I am the chicken sandwich king in my house.
Happy Taco Tuesday!
Happy New Year and good riddance 2020! We wish you to never rear your ugly head again! Today is National Spaghetti Day. Seems like a good day to warm the house with a batch of homemade marinara and handmade meatballs.
So, Beth & I are headed to Vegas Christmas Day. We’ll have our Christmas prime rib on Thursday night. Gotta have a good side to go with it. I found an amazing pasta dish at Sam & Dave’s BBQ in Marietta, Georgia and then I tweeked it for my pleasure. I hope you like it. BTW…Don’t use packaged, shredded cheese. Put the work in and shred it yourself. It’ll melt much better.

I mentioned on the air today, that I could not find my mom’s divinity recipe and I haven’t had any since she passed away many years ago. A listener, her name is Donna, texted her mom’s recipe, which she got from Better Homes & Gardens. As far as I know, that’s where my mom got it as well. So, I’m just gonna call it…
