Food Pairing 101: What Goes Well With “Sleep City” by Radio Birds?

For this year’s cookie exchange I decided something new was in order. I had wowed with my chickpea cookies, played lead fiddle with the iced up whoopie pies and smacked them upside the head with a crack pie. What haven’t I done? Gone simple. Gone easy. Taken someone else’s recipe and just moved along. So, that’s what I did. I flipped through the pages of Vegan […]

Artist’s Cookbook: Pineapple HOLDS YOU Upside DOWN Cake Courtesy of Drowning Clowns

A few week’s back I was spending a lot of time worried about feral cats having comfy winter living conditions, growing milk in laboratories and Whole Foods trying to accidentally (on purpose) kill a bunch of red state people with nut allergies. Almost as an aside I shared with the world my love of Drowning Clowns. It only seems fitting, Drowning Clowns, as a lot of […]

Listen: Wholesome Music from Genevieve, Side Saddle and Girlpool

My spiedie senses have reached high alert. The alarm continues to go off because of: Color. Glitter. Energy. Alt-pop. These are the driving forces behind the first single, “Colors”, from LA based Genevieve (formerly front woman for Company of Thieves). Its a song meant to inspire one to do themselves and not to be afraid to bear their true colors. This needed to come out now for Genevieve […]

Cook: Tofu Spiedie

Way up north, just south of the North Pole, lies the county of Broome. In this county two rivers, the Suquehanna and Chenango, meet up in a bowl-shaped valley. This valley is home to the city of Binghamton (population, about a quarter million). In the past, a typical family in Binghamton might’ve had someone working for the railroad. They may have produced cigars and shoes, rubbed […]

Listen: Young Romance, Death Team and Lady Low

A gigantic bag of green bean, water stained cashews and almond crusted shallots taste best when spiced with: What if moments before Bette Midler went off to record a song for the Beaches soundtrack she had loaded up on vegan green bean casserole? I guarantee she would’ve been less torture elementary school kid in chorus class “Wind Beneath My Wings” and more I want to lie […]

Cook: Vegan (Paleo Friendly) Green Bean Casserole

I try my hardest to treat my classroom like an airport. No bags left unattended or the hammer falls. I’m talking TSA, FBI, ATF, Girl Scouts, I’ll call them all in just to bring the threat level down to zero. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but, mommas, you can’t trust those elementary school kids. Who knows what kinds of things might be hiding […]

Where They Eat: Night Lights and Pad Thai Cafe

I can’t say I know a whole lot about Boston’s eating scene. I mean I’ve spent about twelve hours in the city on two separate trips. One visit revolved around a baseball game that was played under such a hard rain that it left my desire to explore the food culture of the city somewhere around zilch. The other visit was cut short by a banishment. […]

There were some really disturbing stories and hoaxes that hit the news circuit this week. Thank God for the world of veganism where no one tried to kill anyone. Oh, wait. I forgot about Whole Foods. Here is that, and other stories, that caught my eye this week. Happenings: Jessica Chastain Buys Her Mom a Vegan Food Truck Why not lab grown milk? Whole Foods […]

Food Flavored Song: Honey by Bruising

There was this creepy guy that lived down the road from us during my childhood. He had a barn that was always locked. I swore it was full of corpses, like Leatherface kind of action. It was so bad anytime he made barbecue, I abstained. One day when he was out of town I snuck into his garage through a back window. What I found […]
