Naan Loaded Tofu Kebab Wraps with Tamarind Chutney Styled by Capital Cities, Reptar and EMA The Kid

My personal hairstylist, let’s call her Faith, rang the other day and left a message on my voicemail. It was something about her dog picture business taking off and needing to begin seeing me on Sundays instead of Saturdays. I haven’t called her back yet. Not because I didn’t have time but because I was waiting. Waiting to see if I would even need her. […]


Food Flavored Artist: Chase the Sun by Skipping Girl Vinegar

(Photo by J-Fur) Skipping Girl Vinegar is an Australian Indie Pop band (think the down under version of I’m From Barcelona) that is not afraid to try crazy things in the name of standing out. Take their idea to send a Hobo Monkey into space for the “Chase the Sun” video. This Monkey soared, attached to a makeshift weather balloon, to 110,000 feet. For you […]


Baker’s Dozen: Interview with The Valery Trails

About fourteen years ago Andrew Bower, one of the members of The Valery Trails, followed his job to Papua New Guinea for a few months. Those months turned in to years and led to other stays abroad in Africa and the US. This put on hold any type of music making that The Valery Trails could do. With improvements in technology came the ability to […]


Val’s Apple Cinnamon French Toast Muffins with You and Me and Johnny Neon

I’m one of the best gift givers I know. It wasn’t always this way. When I was 17 I gave J-Fur a necklace with this beautiful sapphire on (her favorite gem). The only problem was that it was connected to a gold chain (a color that she refuses to wear). She tried to like it, even had herself convinced for a few minutes, but in […]


Roasted Cauliflower Panzanella Soaked in Brian Larsen and Tribes

Florentine traditionalists will thumb their nose at this dish as it does not contain onions, tomatoes, vinegar or basil. This is not panzanella they might utter, this is an abomination.  In my humble opinion, any abomination that tastes good is worth it. I mean just take a look at this site, you will find so many abominations that I should probably call it the food […]


Food Flavored Song of the Day: Grown Up by Danny Brown

My first experience with Danny Brown was live with Das Racist. I thought it was a joke. This guy couldn’t be for real could he? As I started to pay attention I realized that he was for real, just not my type of real. Then, there he was rapping over the Big Pink, and for the first time I enjoyed something he was involved with. […]


Vegan Dr. Pepper Biscuits + Sweet Potato Grits + Agave Mushrooms + Solander, Terrible Feelings, and Sion Russell Jones

While there are some vegetables I’m not that fond of, I can be persuaded to like anything when it is buy one get one hundred free. That’s what sweet potatoes were last week. Typically the sweet potato is too sweet for my taste (go figure). But I couldn’t resist their local calling and cheap price so I bought a few. I scooted around the internet […]


Where They Eat: Ercole and His Brother at Antica Trattoria II Duomo Srl

Ercole Ghiozzi and his Brother are relatively new to the DJ thing. With only a mixtape and a few tracks to their name Erco openly admits that they do not yet have a cool sound, are still searching for their own voices and trying to learn the programs that they use to make music. Perhaps this is just him being humble. Perhaps it is legit. […]


St. Patrick’s Day Rosti with Macklemore and Lewis

St. Patrick’s Day is usually the day where I invite a large number of non-veggie friends over and cook up some vegetarian holiday food. This year I’m keeping things low key (and high carb) since I have my latest half marathon tomorrow. I celebrated, slightly, a few days ago when I cooked up some Bubble and Squeak Rosti from One Perfect Bite. The only problem […]
