Drink: Sweet Potato, Banana and Strawberry Serum

The plump little fat kids have returned from their summertime adventure at weight loss camp and, thankfully, the regimen didn’t work. Florida’s strawberries are bigger, plumper and more out of shape than ever. This means that the next few weeks are going to be filled with gorging on anything (and everything) that mingles nicely with  one of nature’s fattest berries. Now I’m a morning smoothie kind […]

Now that we have that out of the way, let’s talk about the fashionista that lives on the top floor of your apartment building.I’m not talking about the lady who looks and sounds like a man, has a little dog and yells smoke tinged curses out the window that are so inappropriate […]

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.

Where We Eat (and drink): Naga Tea

So there’s this vision that has been running through my mind for the last few hours. It is me, walking up to the edge of a gigantic river that is full of man eating piranha-sharks. A whole slew of bloggers are about a half mile behind me and they are running as fast as they can. On their hands. Now running fast on your hands isn’t […]

Food Flavored Artist: Open Your Eyes by United Fruit

The United Fruit Company was a US multinational that flourished during the early to mid 20th century. The company dealt mostly with bananas but also had a bit of a soft spot for dictators and monopolies as well. They enjoyed enormous privilege in Central America thanks to their willingness to oppose organized unions by backing the authoritarian governments that quashed labor unrest at any cost. The company has […]
