Click: Feral Cats Get Bachelor Pads, Growing Milk in Labs, Whole Foods Gets Political, Beautiful Poetry and Other Things That Garnered Some Attention Last Week

There were some really disturbing stories and hoaxes that hit the news circuit this week. Thank God for the world of veganism where no one tried to kill anyone. Oh, wait. I forgot about Whole Foods. Here is that, and other stories, that caught my eye this week. Happenings: Jessica Chastain Buys Her Mom a Vegan Food Truck Why not lab grown milk? Whole Foods […]


Kid Tested, Father Approved: Butternut Squash and Apple Stew

“Wallace spent the rest of his life trying to explain away his racist past and in 1982 he won his last term in office with over 90% of the black vote, such is the duality of the southern thing.” -Drive-By Truckers “The Three Great Alabama Icons” Toddlers are rather funny eaters. You make up a batch of sweet, cranberry laced, granola bars and think they will […]


Food Pairing 101: What Goes With Veganomicon’s Baked Potato and Greens Soup?

Scene 1 The kitchen. Tender Branson enters from the left side. He is visibly agitated and vigorously waving his hand in front of his noise. Tender: Good goddamn man. Why does it smell like fish in here? I’m going to have to remedy that. Tender shuffles around in some cabinets and pulls out a big pot. He grabs a copy of Veganomicon from his bookshelf and then […]


Cook: Curried Quinoa and Tomato Stew

Sometime in the mid-2000’s people began expelling their former lover gluten from the bedroom. They were sick and tired of the name calling, the fat jokes and the physical swelling of their belly (gluten seems to become physical when it gets angry).

Cook: Collard Greens and Lima Beans Soup

This week the governor followed up his snakes in the swamp decree by offering a reward for any Floridian who got their hands on a Skunk Ape. I joined three of my best buddies, including Beast Mode (Calla Lily) and we headed out in search of that elusive critter. We searched high and low through the Florida backwoods with nary a sight nor sound (nor smell). […]

It has only been two days since Cinco De Mayo passed. That’s not much time in human years but in avocado years, it’s like an eternity. According to scientists, avocados age at a rate that is nearly four million times faster than a human (summed up in a famous paper I wrote in elementary school with the equation 4,000,000 x H = Av). As I perused the […]


Cook: Lotsa Veggie Lentil Soup

“I don’t always get sick, but when I do I prefer Progresso Lentil Soup.” -Most Interesting Man in the World (circa 2004) Fun fact: before becoming the spokesman for Dos Equis and their most interesting man in the world campaign (which launched in 2006), Jonathan Goldsmith actually auditioned for the same role at Progresso soup. Unfortunately the ad campaign was shelved due to internal strife. […]


Cook: Onion Famine Soup

“It’s like Adelaide, circa August 1951 up in here.” I sat bolt upright in bed. What the f*** was my brain talking about? I’m an American, I barely know the history of my own country. Hell if I know anything about the history of a continent located on the whole other side of the world. I tried to communicate this to my brain. I had […]
