Hi you guys!
I’ve been away from this blog (and writing in general) for a while! In part I’ve been busy, but it’s also a matter of me simply not writing a whole lot lately. I hope nobody missed me.
Anyhow, I’m trying to write more and as such, I figured I’d start the new year with a food blog post about a New Year’s Day brunch food. I’d have liked to have had a whole menu, but my housemate decided to go out for brunch (understandably; I have no brunch beverages) so I decided to prepare a brunch for myself.
New Year’s Day brunch is special, and should be accordingly rich (it soothes the hangover). This dish cures hunger and hangovers with gusto.
This was a fairly panicked meal, since I’d forgotten that it was my night to cook dinner for my house until around 4 (we usually eat at 6). I hadn’t soaked the beans (more on that later) and hadn’t gone grocery shopping, or even planned a meal. It was great anyways. Continue reading
Ravioli are a celebration of everything awesome, like seeing an old friend. Why? Because they’re dough pockets of happiness. And cheese.
My dear friend/sister Alison came to visit me Friday, and I could only think of making pasta filled with delicious things, and since it’s spring, that meant spring onions from the garden and asparagus. Alison was kind enough to be my photographer while I worked. Continue reading
CAUTION! EATING THESE MAY CAUSE ANY OF THE FOLLOWING: delusions of grandeur, contemplation of the inevitability of death, spontaneous singing, self-esteem-crushing weight gain, uncontrollable joy, acid flashbacks, overeating, etc.
They are that good and so incredibly eeeeasy. Flaky, cheesy, crispy goodness all over the place. You just have to ignore the ingredients as you add them, or your heart may straight up try to kill you for what you’re doing to it. Continue reading
It was delightfully hot/sunny/amazing yesterday, and the day before, and the day before. On Tuesday (that’s the 2nd day before, for those of you keeping track), my housemates and I had a grillout!
Why? Because it was warm and pleasant and we have a grill! It’s a little charcoal Weber, which I didn’t remember how to use for a hot minute (it’s been a while, a guy’s used to cooking with gas). Anyways, we made a bunch of things for vegetarians and meat-devourers alike, and here are some recipes for the bits that I did.
When thinking of things to grill, skewers are a lazy-man’s must. They are so darn easy. See?
A recent conversation (read: facebook status comment thread) in combination with a Thought Catalog article revealed to me that there are definitely things I consider food sins. The article validated a couple of my food deal-breakers (eating pizza with silverware (i mean come on), disassembling an Oreo Cookie (why?), and the ever-popular ketchup drizzle on fries (does it even cover them evenly?)), and then the facebook status revealed a couple more, including ketchup on brats and TAKING FOOD REALLY REALLY SERIOUSLY.

I have a camera of my very own (it’s my new iPhone…)! This means that I will update FAR MORE FREQUENTLY. Fuck yeah.
Sorry for the veganism, but I make regular burgers at work with some frequency, and I can’t lie, I’d rather eat these. And all of my 21 housemates can also eat them, so that’s awesome.
