Orzo in a Citrus Hot Bath of Chiddy Bang and Tin Can Radio

Bagna Cauda is the saltier fish bred cousin to fondue (in my own family, Courtney would be the bagna cauda). I had never heard of the dipping sauce until last week when I was perusing Giada de Laurentiis recipes trying to find one that I could shirk and pass off as my own. I came across her Tilapia with Citrus Bagna Cauda. There were enough […]

Food Flavored Artist: Tug by The History of Apple Pie

(photo by Jamie Walters Smith) It started something like this: “Tak gode Applys and gode Spryeis and Figys and reyfons and Perys and wan they are wel ybrayed co- lourd wyth Safron wel and do yt in a cofyn and do yt forth to bake well” (from The Forme of Cury by Samuel Pegge). At the time of this recipe, sugar was scarce and the […]


Breakfast Gnocchi Remixed by Hey Sholay!

I ate lunch with my class today and they were having “breakfast for lunch.” That meant sausage, hash browns and pancakes. It also meant syrup everywhere. I left the table with no fewer than three sticky hand prints on various parts of my body (I don’t even remember them touching my collar right under my chin). While sitting with them certainly didn’t save me any […]


Lightning Sholay Sallet Drizzled with Beat Radio, Motorboater and Occult Detective Club

On the East Side of Gainesville there is a salad (and pizza) worth traveling for. Trust me, we have. Our latest trek, a minor one compared to most, was sixty miles straight across Route 24 dodging small towns soliciting boiled peanuts and Domino’s pizza drivers. This time, as I savored the salad, I began envisioning my own version. Friday, after work, I brought those visions […]


Baker’s Dozen: Interview with Reversing Falls

I’ll be the first to admit, I’ve put knives in some strange places (sorry grandma) but this prior experience didn’t prepare me for the shock I would receive when I came to the Reversing Falls Tumblr Page. Why had I never thought of that? Reversing Falls are a Canadian trio made up of Tyler Crawford (lead vocals, guitar), Jesse Ash (bass/drum machine programming/backing vocals) and […]


Hottie Black Eyed Peas and Greens Simmered with Ninjasonik and Overlord

As our alien governor continues to do battle with the state’s public education employees I figured it was time to reach to a higher power. Black-eyed peas and greens have long been a New Year’s Day tradition in the South. The meal is intended to represent coinage (the beans) and bills (the greens). I figured why wait until New Year’s to request prosperity. I mean […]


Food Flavored Song of the Day: Milkman by EMA

Milkmen used to be important. They delivered the goods on a daily basis in order to bring the freshest milk to their patrons. Over time refrigeration and the procedures for treating milk improved (or worsened depending on how you look at it) and the milkman was sold out for mustaches and notmilkmen. This once formidable career choice might have completely disappeared had it not been […]


Matryoshka Hummus Cakes Nesting Inside Skizzy Mars and Germany Germany

You probably don’t need me to extol the virtues of hummus so I’ll simply say, never have beans tasted so amazing. What you might not realize is that hummus is also wonderful when it is baked into a crusty little patty and shoved, one on top of another, inside a pita. It is sort of like Dostoyevski’s onion or one of those hidden Russian dolls. […]


Falcon Soars with Brownies Not From a Box

I know this girl who scratched and clawed for six years before finally graduating from college (congrats Shannon). To celebrate I made her brownies that did not come from a box (sorry Beagle). The brownies were done on a whim so they weren’t as fabulously awesome as they could have been, but they were still pretty dang good. I used this recipe, minus the sugary […]
