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 […]


Food Pairing 101: What Goes Well with E-Dubble’s No Rest for the Wicked

Somedays I want my food a bit wicked. It could be a Boston thing. It could be a horror show thing. It could be naughty like. That’s the beauty of wickedness, it is just so damn versatile. Most importantly, wicked never rests. With that being said here are just a few wicked recipes I would easily recommend. Wicked witches with sombreros, Boston Baked Beans, Wicked […]

Cook: Pumpkin and Garbanzo Chowder

It officially hit Florida cold the day which means the temperatures dropped below 70 for a few hours. Kids came to school wearing boots and scarves and thick ass jackets. Walking the halls you could hear little bits of conversations about the weather. Macho things like “I love the cold. I wear shorts all ‘winter’ long” or “I love it when it feels like this […]


Cook: Turnip and Quinoa Stew

Between October and February winter turnips come out of hiding and remind the world that they are here and ready to be eaten. It should come as no surprise that these little purple packages of sweetness have found their way in mass quantity to the farmer’s market. Normally I look past them. But after spending some time reading the New Orleans cookbook Treme I decided […]


Artist’s Cookbook: Chef Jeremy Haffner of JJXO Shares His Mango Chili Lime Sorbet

I was on one of those food blogger dating shows the other night and the host, a cute thing with short brown hair and blue eyes, asked me point blank…”Tender, what really gets you going?” I thought for a few brief seconds and then answered, “Well, it is really cool when bands write to me and tell me how much they love to cook and […]


Where We Eat: Sushi Ko

Try packing a baby into a hot ass Florida car, driving forty-five minutes one way and then sitting down for a quiet meal. It doesn’t happen. Usually somewhere in there the baby starts crying, wets through her 18 pairs of clothes and poops in all her diapers. Needless to say, since the birth of Zora this summer, J-Fur and I have made it a point […]


Cook: Quinoa and Potato Stew

  Back in February the United Nations declared 2013 “the International Year of Quinoa.” Those of us who are fans of the South American grain and have been espousing its virtues almost since the day we were born (my first word was quinoa, ask my mom) jumped up and down, slapped each other on the back and shouted a huge what took so long. The […]


The Great ZAB Soup Boozed Up By The Bushwick Hotel and The Oyster Murders

We were picking up a prescription at one of those behemoth corporate stores that have everything when I realized I needed an avocado for dinner. The farmer’s market was too far away, I was already in a store that had avocados, so I bit the bullet and wandered over to the produce section (even we amateur cooks make desperate calls every once in a while).
