Cook: Tamari-Lime Tempeh and Rice with Edmame and Corn

“…the whole shebang owes less to Murphy’s LCD Soundsystem than to Vampire Weekend, from whom Win Butler and co. most likely learned to use their passport stamps as musical inspiration without coming across (well, to most people, anyway) as craven imperialist marauders. (You gotta admit that syncing their full-album, pre-release-stream lyric video to the 1959 Brazilian flick Black Orpheus is some impressively zealous trolling.)” -Rob […]

Cook: Artichoke Po’ Girl Sandwich with Roasted Red Pepper Remoulade

Z-Bot curled up on my lap the other night, turned her little blue eyes towards my face and gave me the look. Anyone who is a parent knows exactly what I’m talking about when I say the look. It is that moment when your child asks, without uttering a sound, for you to tell them a good story. I bit into my latest creation, a […]

Cook: Tempura Sweet Potato Sushi

I noticed the barfly as soon as we walked in to our favorite sushi laboratory. He was sitting at the counter ogling the sushi rolls that the bandanna clad chef was furiously preparing. The counter man was rather non distinct (middle aged, chubby and balding a bit) except for the creepy handlebar mustache that adorned his upper lip. That thing was totally uncalled for in the kind […]

Cook: Beet Ravioli

One of my most vivid memories from the preteen era of my life is gallivanting through the metropolis of Newville, Pennsylvania with a large spray paint can in hand. On any surface I could find, and there were like five buildings in Newville so I had quite a selection, I painted my favorite slogan, “You don’t turn your back on one of your own” (yes Mister Policeman, I did […]

Where We Eat: Green Mint Asian Grill

I’m not one to be bogged down by the supernatural or anything but a few weeks ago I was at one of those parties where everyone wears a face cover and chants strange things into their neighbor’s ear when this lady in dark satin floated over and whispered  “Green Mint Asian Grill” so that only I could hear it. Before I could catch her name, she vanished into […]

Cook: Date Night Pudding

It was date night last evening in the Branson household. Now I know what you might be thinking and I assure you this has nothing to do with our normal date antics like dinner and a movie, being raped by aliens, taking blood samples or running a crack cocaine ring (yep, 27 out of 37 were just me and J-Fur having fun). Last night was all about the […]

Cook: Salvadoran Pupusa

Every country seems to have their own version of dough stuffed with a combination of veggies, meat and/or cheese. Mexico has the gordita. Italy has the calzone. Arepas can be found in Panama, Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic, Colombia and Venezuela. In the US, we have…uh, Hot Pockets? The Salvadoran version is called a Pupusa. If I am remembering my high school Uto-Aztecan language class correctly “Pupusa” means octopus. […]

Where We Eat: The Old Spanish Sugar Mill Grill and Griddle House

“From the death of the old the new proceeds, and the life of truth from the death of creeds.” -John Greenleaf Whittier In 1961, a once illustrious sugar mill standing adjacent to Deleon Springs was at the brink of demolition. The “old building” had been vacant for some time and many people were ready to see it go. But, as John Greenleaf Whittier suggested above, out of […]
