Listen: Earworms courtesy of LOLO, Baby Baby and Little Daylight

If sweet potato hash browns were served at a diner, what sound would they make? I would reckon: Based on how close LOLO is to YOLO, I wanted to hate her new song “Hit and Run”. She made it impossible. Best use of preacher’s son in years… *I just listened to it twice more to make sure it still gets my potatoes in a fried wad. It […]


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 […]


Food Flavored Video: Slowolf’s “Overdose”

I stumbled around the apartment this morning, still hungover from my evening of baby tears. In the dark I managed to kick the kitchen counter and break my toenail. Beneath it blood started to pool up in a blister. This was unlike any blister I had ever seen before, this one was colored red, white and blue. I smiled. Today was going to be a […]

What’s Cooking With Timothy Cushing

This blog is named for the artistic endeavors of writing, cooking and photography and the age- old pastime of listening to music. Had I knew it was going to turn into a five year endeavor I might’ve put a little more time into succinctly saying what I meant. Oh well, its a mouthful. Of course, that’s what we like around here… It could’ve actually been worse. In […]


Food Pairing 101: What Goes Well With Vegan Cinnamon Rolls?

While I love fruit desserts dearly, there is absolutely no after dinner (or early morning) treat quite as sexy as a cinnamon roll. It all begins with that soft, warm, yeasty interior seasoned with a reasonable amount of sticky cinnamon. If you stopped there, things would be good enough. But a cinnamon roll keeps pushing the sugar envelope. It is then drizzled with gooey icing. Its a mess. […]

Cook: Meatloaf Cupcakes with Mashed Potato Icing

It has been written a number of different places, all peer reviewed journals in case you wondered, that on the morning of my birth as the sun rose over the mountains five aunts in different places and completely unbeknownst to each other, laid down a plate of meat loaf in front of their family at exactly the same time. The question this has always made […]


Artist’s Cookbook: Marta’s Pescara Bruschetta Courtesy of Elam McKnight

In four previous albums West Tennessee native Elam McKnight has succeeded in accomplishing a number of things. His first release breathed life into the sometimes stale and tobacco stained “bar band” blues scene. The second one scored some blues chart time in both America and abroad. His third one earned a Best Blues Song award from the independent music awards. Each album met with more success and […]
