Cook: Portobello, Caramelized Onions and Garbanzo Fritters in a Pita

This is the story of two plumbers who will forever be linked in plumbing lore. Their connection to each other runs so much deeper than just their ability to fix a sink or unclog a toilet. Our story begins worlds apart, one in the remote Alaskan bush and the other in the hippy dippy eccentric district of Asheville, North Carolina. In the early 1950s, Steve […]


Food Flavored Song: “Sloppy Joes” by VOMITFACE

There is no greater pairing in the history of the world than a nice sloppy joe with a face full of vomit. At least that is what VOMITFACE will have you believe. After all, their new single “Sloppy Joes” evokes just this type of feeling. To make it worse, they grunge drop some lyrics about salmonella and toxicosis. Thankfully the song is nice enough to […]


Listen: The Latest Hits from Wonderful Humans, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Work Drugs and The Provincial Archive

Savory pancakes full of sauerkraut go down smoother when slathered with: A trio of Wonderful Humans who hail from New York City. They make pretty catchy, electro fabulous tunes. Wonderful Humans is an offshoot, as the three members are also part of three other “successful bands” of different genres. That’s about all I can tell you about them as, in this world of selfie obsessed look […]


Cook: Sauerkraut Pancakes

Back in college my pal Blake and I were on one of those all night concussion fighting benders. Unable to go to sleep, fearing that we would not wake up again, we decided to take a trip out west. We planned to hit up Albuquerque. Unfortunately we took a wrong turn. Then we took another and another and another. Before we knew it, we were […]

Here is what I noticed over the past 14 days: Recipes Rocket Hummus from Tinned Tomatoes Sweet Potato Tots  from Your Vegan Mom Charred Carrot Hot Dogs from the Chubby Vegetarian Gluten Free Buckwheat Crepes from Sweet Potato Soul Chocolate Truffle Cake (almost vegan) from the […]


Artist’s Cookbook: Beat the Heart’s Tjälknöl

Somewhere amidst the frost bumped loins of Stockholm, Sweden there lives a group of five men. Four of these men are brother pairs. The fifth wheel is a haunting fellow named Filip. These brother pairs and Filip have merged their extraordinary talents into one seamless project. The result? Beat the Heart. Beat the Heart is best described by what the band has accomplished. They’ve been able […]


Food Flavored Song of the Day: The Lovely Eggs “Allergies”

Holly and David of The Lovely Eggs, live the way they play. That means they ride the highway of life in a fierce manner constantly searching for the next good time. With lyrics that are observational and often surreal and a sound that is stripped down to one vintage guitar amp, one Big Muff distortion pedal, a guitar and a drum kit, the Lovely Eggs […]

Listen: Buchanan, LANY and Kimono

Doing a double dip of Italian flavors? Might I suggest a straight chaser of: I know a thing or two about Buchanan. First, growing up in Pennsylvania our claim to President fame was the one and only James Buchanan. Second, I almost ended my lackluster high school basketball career with a game winning shot against Buchanan. Unfortunately one of my teammates jumped over my back […]


Cook: Foccacia with Rosemary, Tomatoes and Onions and Sundried Tomato and Asparagus Alfredo Pasta

Aw yes, the life of being a dad. It has been a great ride. Hard to believe that just yesterday Z-Bot hit the eleven month mark (and my good pal BH hit the 34(?) mark). Time has certainly flown by. It hasn’t all been easy. Some nights, worn out by all the demands I’ve placed on my young and supple body, I’ve had to resort to […]
