Grilled Foccacia with Pesto, Tomato, Spinach and Fresh Mozzarella made from Standard Fare and Mouthful of Snow

Yesterday, outside of my apartment, I saw a wild thing (think gator). Later in the day, I went to see “Where the Wild Things Are” at the Sunset Cinema. I thought the movie was fine but it wasn’t anything special, I expected more. My favorite line from the film, which I’ve already used today, was when KW (one of the wild things) said to Max […]


French Vanilla Ice Cream and Strawberries frozen with Holy Roman Army and the Leaf Library

A few weeks ago I wrote about the Strawberry Festival in Plant City. One thing I failed to mention in that post is that J-Fur and I bought a half flat of strawberries. Most of them were eaten as is or on top of angel food cake (J-Fur’s favorite). She was kind enough to let me use a few for the homemade French Vanilla Ice […]


St. Patrick’s Day Recipe Links Driven by Dillinger Four, Titus Andronicus, Dropkick Murphys, The Tossers, Bell X1 and Great Big Sea

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Normally I do a vegetarian St. Patrick’s Day feast and invite everyone over to my house. This year, because of out of town visitors, conflicting schedules and J-Fur’s qualifying exams, I am putting the feast off until sometime in April. For now, I’ll just celebrate by posting links to some of the food I’ve enjoyed in the past (or those that […]


Baker’s Dozen: Interview with Moreno

A man, a mac and a vision. When it boils down to it that is what allows Moreno, a prolific musician from Santiago, Chile, to put out so much great music. Consider this, Moreno has put out three full length albums in the last three years and that isn’t even counting his splits and EP’s. That is a career for some artists. How does the […]


Pumpkin Sage Balls shaped with SXSW performers Arms and The Megaphonic Thrift

With standardized testing season upon us at school, it is easy to forget about some of the finer things in life. Like birthdays. Our team, which has been pretty good about making everyone’s special day just that, totally blew it with KC. We skipped right over her birthday and didn’t even recognize it. Thankfully we were given the opportunity for a do over and we […]


Florida Strawberry Festival Foods Dipped in BBU, Ivy St and Class of Kill ‘em High

For the seventy-fifth year in a row, Plant City is celebrating their wonderful berry crop with a festival. The Florida Strawberry Festival (which ironically enough takes place on Lemon St.) is one of the top 50 fairs in the United States. Aside from the typical fair cuisine (think anything, add frying to it, and you’ll find it here) the festival has many strawberry dishes. Some […]


Blueberry buckle shined with Terror Pigeon Dance Revolt and The Pass

One of my favorite books to read my class when teaching them how to write letters is Dear Mr. Blueberry by Simon James. The story is about a girl who finds a whale in her backyard and the teacher that gives her information about whales, while not believing her. Had Emily faced the dilemma I did this week, perhaps one of her letters would’ve gone […]


Appendages in the Colcannon Mix: Tapedeck Mountain, Japanther, Sarah Jaffe, Rooftop Vigilantes, Werd, FM Belfast, Moreno, Arpline, Birdmonster…

I like to stick my fingers in things to taste them, especially mashed potatoes (or the version I make which is closer to colcannon). Some people may view this as unsanitary. I say, at least I’m not Mantan Moreland (check out 1:40). Be it cake batter, icing, grease, hot sauce, soup, pie filling, it doesn’t matter. I’ma gonna stick my finger in and lick it […]
