Cook: Fennel Fritter with “Bacon” and Ranch Dressing

What a weird Saturday. There I am lazing about on the couch watching Steve Harvey make a mockery of my favorite game show from my childhood, Family Feud, when I took a bite of my vegan curds and whey. Just as the two battling families were about to try their hand at putting themselves in the shoes of a hundred random Americans I passed out. […]

Cook: Chinese Noodle Salad

I read somewhere that there are only three things that would survive a nuclear holocaust: roaches, gonorrhea and Chinese noodles. I’m not sure what makes the first two unique (other than they are survivors), but I have to think the reason the noodles would survive is because they are overloaded with the unholiest ingredients known to man. There’s processed food and then there is Chinese […]

Cook: Walnut “Taco” Salad

“A culinary creation that baffles the human mind. A 12,000 calorie salad.” -Bud Light Real Men of Genius Commercial You may remember from 1998 to 2008, Bud Light ran a series of commercials aimed at highlighting the men who work in overlooked professions or those who had out of the norm character traits. These included such important men as Mr. Paranoid of the Ocean Guy, […]

Four for the Fourth: The Tiki Terrier with Disco Fries, Beautiful Small Machines, Cold Beer & Broads and Creo

I’ve often wondered why the ladies haven’t come back with their own version of “Girls Gone Wild” to show that this conversation doesn’t have to be one sided. While perusing through the EBAY porn section last weekend, I thought I had finally found their response. Seems Holly Schmidt and Allan Penn, who I assumed were top notch wiener movie directors, had filmed a production called “Wieners Gone […]

Cook: Tomato, Gomasio and Arugula Mayo on Cibatta (AKA The Fine Art Sandwich)

Last weekend I opened my refrigerator and broke down crying. It was an absolute mess. My greatest piece of art, my life’s work, my version of the Mona Lisa was teetering on the edge of complete and utter ruin. Right then and there I took it upon myself to do something drastic. I began throwing out condiments. Anything over a year old hit the garbage can. […]

Where We Eat: Cigar City Brewpub

Every day after I’m done teaching I load onto a bus with six other raucous kids and am transported over to a martial arts practice center. Here I am part of a jujitsu group. I am the lowest member on the totem pole. There are kindergarten kids who can jui-jitsu better than me. This weekend we had a competition. Afterwards our best jui-jitsuer, Cassie, her friend […]

Food Flavored Album Review: Little Daylight’s Hello Memory

When I sit back and listen to Little Daylight’s debut full length Hello Memory (Capitol Records), I immediately start craving a Kung Pao Tofu Slider. This is not your Uncle Larry’s slapped together peanut butter and jelly on stale white bread horror show of a sandwich. The Kung Pao Tofu is the type of sandwich that makes your taste buds dance and twirl and cry out for more, long after […]

Cook: Sweet Potato Hash Browns, Cauliflower Scramble and Breakfast Berry Pitas

I witnessed an interesting thing the other night at our local five and dime diner. I was sitting their eating a plate full of assorted pickles (wouldn’t you know the animal free choices are very slim around those parts) when in walked a guy who appeared to have stepped straight off of a movie set. He wore dark sunglasses with a fur half jacket wrapped […]
