Geek Cooking

Accelerated Nursing send me this infographic, they thought it would appeal to my readers. Guess they think of us as a geeky bunch of amateur chefs: Source: Geek’s Guide to Cooking Some “Geek Love” for your ass:


Baked Squeaker Bean Fries Dipped in a Batter of D-Why and Magic Man

Some of the best bar food in Tampa can be found at Mr. Dunderbak’s (despite what J-Fur’s parents might say). Most of the food isn’t vegetarian (let alone vegan) and it certainly isn’t healthy. The good stuff is all fried. I made the mistake of eating there the night before a half marathon a few years back and that was one of the worst runs […]


Denver Eats: Watercourse Foods

Remember when I told you about accidentally booking a spring break trip to Denver? Well I enjoyed the fruits of that late night mistake this past weekend. I must say, it was EVERYTHING I expected. First and foremost, it was cold. How cold? Imagine my ex-girlfriend. Now put her on ice and toss her to the bottom of Lake Michigan in December while listening to […]


Salad Days: Phases by Skizzy Mars

Skizzy Mars is no stranger to I have followed him closely since “Douchebag” made its way across my computer screen. For the first time, ever, Skizzy Mars dropped a collection of songs that are related enough to be called a mixtape. Phases fits together like a fine Caesar salad. Each track is like its own ingredient. No matter how much you mix and stir, each […]


Baker’s Dozen: Interview with Trapdoor Social

We’re back with another installment of the Baker’s Dozen Interview Series. This time we get up close and personal (or as close and personal as the internet waves allow us to) with Trapdoor Social. Band members Merritt and Skylar and I talk about such things as environmental activism, sustainability, spicy foods and Death Cab for Cutie. We then head off to the kitchen for a mean […]


Mr. Crunchy Falls for Lima Beans, Mike Tyson’s Eyes, Ivory Drips and Spewing Volcanoes

Proust’s In Search of Lost Time, published in 1918, is the first literary mention of a Parisian sandwich staple called the Croque-Monsieur. Traditionally the Croque-Monsieur, which loosely(or literally, I’m not well versed in the French language) translates to “Mister Crunchy”, is a grilled ham and cheese sandwich with Emmental or Gruyere providing the gooeyness. According to Wikipedia there are a number of other versions including […]


Food Flavored Video: Funeral by To Kill A King

(picture of Bertie from To Kill a King’s Website shot during the filming of “Funeral”) While the video for “Funeral” by To Kill A King features some drunken angels eating french fries, what really makes it food flavored is the fact that it comes from an album titled Cannibals with Cutlery. Now, I have to admit, when I first heard the title of the album […]


Vegan White Bean Brandade with Crispy Breadcrumbs Mashed by Rococode and Little Jinder

As far as I can tell brandade is a dish that is traditionally made by mashing salt cod with a bit of olive oil and garlic. At some point, maybe it was Julia Child, maybe it wasn’t, someone got wise to the fact that mashing cod was overrated and outdated and they replaced the fish with beans. Despite the fact that Adolphe Thiers, noted French […]


Food Pairing 101: What Goes Well With Wildlife’s New Album?

“Don’t stop believin’? Follow your dreams? Sure. But it seems to me that the heart is a bit too complex to be summed up in a catchphrase.” -Dean Povinsky (Lead Singer of Wildlife) Wildlife’s new album …On the Heart was released March 5th. It is an album dedicated to the most vulnerable and vital organ in the human body. It is an album of realization, […]
