Cook: Sweet Potato and Eggplant Bacon Pasta

This is the story history won’t tell you. It is one that I’ve uncovered only after countless hours of personal research: When Christopher Columbus arrived in the new world (thinking he was really in India) he quickly set to work bartering for spices and goods that he could take back to the King and Queen. As Columbus traded some of his gold coins for a […]


Where They Eat: Yellowbellys of Bailgate and Vx

Those who spend a lot of their time shuttling back and forth between two locales that are quite a distance apart understand the importance of finding food that floats your vegan fancy in both places. Otherwise your left with a virtually impossible scenario. Take it from me, two hours for a deep dish pizza is a bit much (though Satchel’s is totally worth it). For […]


Artist’s Cookbook: Vegan Chocolate ‘Cheese’ Cake by Starar

A few nights ago I feel asleep to a documentary about the disappearance of bees from what has become known as Colony Collapse Disorder. According to the documentary, this is a very serious threat. It is one that could wind up having a huge impact on future eating habits and access to certain fruits and vegetables. What do bees have to do with British duo […]

Food Flavored Song: “Chick-Fil-A” by EaSWay

I’ve never been inside a Chick-Fil-A before. The closest I came was yesterday when I pulled into the parking lot of one to exchange some amber for cash. Unfortunately I was not able to make it all go down without a hitch thanks to some road raging punks who pulled into the drive thru. They sold me out to management. So then I relocated to […]


Listen: Art Movements from The Chainsmokers, Auto Body, Juleah and Salvador G.

Even inbred, redneck, American cousins who drink tea made from turmeric deserve soundtracks. Here goes: Think back a few years to a time when life was simpler. It was a time when there wasn’t the constant need, er…requirement(?), to, on a visit to see the Mona Lisa at an art gallery, snap a picture of yourself giving the middle finger. It was a time when […]


Cook: Artichoke Pie-A-Ya

This is the tale of two cousins born on opposite sides of the track: Paella is a have. He was born with a silver spoon already nestled nicely into his cheek. He wears the finest garments, has maids and butlers at his beckon night and day and fills his mouth with the most decadent chocolates. His tea? Made from saffron. On the other side of […]


Listen: The Sultry Side of WORKOUT!, The Dirty Nil and Lincoln Jesser

A smoky butternut squash with sun-dried tomato recipe requires music that is just as hazy and sultry. Try these on for size: What a breath of fresh air WORKOUT!‘s new single is. I find myself humming it, thinking about it, breathing it in. It stands head and shoulders above most of the songs that cross my computer screen. The single, titled “If You Touch Me […]


Cook: Smoky Butternut Squash Pasta with Sun-Dried Tomatoes

“I like my fruit and vegetables like I like my infections. Local baby!” -Tender Branson For years I’ve spent my weekends running up and down Morris Bridge Road avoiding alligators, snakes and high speed travelers. Over that time, I’ve watched Branchton Farms Farmers’ Market grow from a small, backyard operation into a much larger one. In its current form, Branchton Farms now has a cooling […]
