THE ROCK FATHER: THE POP CULTURE MAGAZINE FOR FAMILIES THAT ROCK.

Rock & Coffee: Jasmine Cain's WHITE NOISE and Coffin Coffee

This week, Nashville rocker JASMINE CAIN unleashed her latest album, WHITE NOISE.  Produced by Lincoln Parish (CAGE THE ELEPHANT) and featuring special guests including guitarists Jeff LaBar (CINDERELLA), Gerry Finn (KILLER DWARFS) & Charlie Parra - the album also has an appearance by Ralph Saenz (aka Michael Starr from STEEL PANTHER) on the closing number, "Fall to Rise." While a new album and a tour rolling into the biker Mecca of Sturgis, SD is a pretty great way to end a week, the added bonus that arrived here at Rock Father HQ alongside the CD was a bag of Jasmine Cain's Coffin Coffee - and that was a highlight for me. Two things I love are coffee and rock, and Jasmine Cain sent me both. Along with The Rock Daughters (Addie in particular), I decided to do my first-ever video review of a coffee for Rock Father TV.

Would You Like to Eat a Twinkie that's Been Smoked by a Flaming Pine Cone?

If I was writing for certain other sites, the headline for this article would've been "You Won't Believe What Happened When These Men Smoked a Twinkie!" or "These Guys Lit a Pine Cone on Fire... What Happened Next will Surprise You!" Would either of those make the hook here any less... odd? Probably not, but the fact remains that you can smoke a Twinkie, and Chef Paul Shoemaker and Jimmy Wong just did it for the new Kitchen Lab video series from Bon Appetit. Check this out...

Get Ready to Rock with Pringles® Summer Jam!

Tracking Pixel

Pringles SummerJam 300x128When you're into playing music, everything around you has the potential to be used for sonic purposes. While I've always been a guitarist first, I've been known to have percussionist aspirations, going as far as to put a five-piece drum set in our garage - something that The Rock Daughters™ and their friends really enjoy dabbling with. When the crew over at Pringles® asked me to offer up some thoughts about how I'd do a jam (like their Pringles® Summer Jam® Summer Jam!) I agreed, but at Rock Father HQ, there's music being played every day already. I just can't say it's always good, but I'll strap a few Pringles® cans to the drum set to see what I can do...

KINDMilesMatter: Spending Time with Family, Logging Miles for Good...

Made to Matter: Handpicked by TargetTHE ROCK FATHER has partnered with Life of Dad and KIND Snacks for this promotion. Why? Because he likes to work with people that rock, and they both do.

While our family has things pretty good, one thing we tend to lack on is outdoor adventure time as a complete unit of four. Scheduling is the main issue, between my wife's career and my work (which has changed a bit to where I'm a work-at-home-dad about 80% of the time), the The Rock Daughters™' school and now summer activities. There is always something going on, and while we have a pretty great life, there's a lot of adventures that tend to take place as a unit of three - with my wife and I flip-flopping the "parent at the helm" duties. The biggest challenge of every adventure is simply getting all four of us together at once and without something that "has to be done." That's why I was thrilled to partner with Life of Dad and KIND Snacks on their #KINDMilesMatter campaign - an effort to spend some family time logging some miles on foot, with the folks at KIND donating a box of snacks per mile for an organization of our choosing. Thing is, even here my schedule jammed me up. We were supposed to log miles between June 20 and July 6, and guess what? I was traveling for work for the entire first week of that (a rarity to be gone so long in one run), but it had to be done.

KRAFT Mac & Cheese: A Tradition that Gets Better with Time…

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.
