We All Scream

Last week I received a message from a friend that contained a link, and nothing more. My reply was a simple but heartfelt Sweet Baby Jesus!

Leftover Delivery System

I treated myself to an order of Bombay Kitchen deliciousness on Friday knowing full well that it was substantially more than one person – or more accurately, three people – could reasonably eat. Because leftovers.

A Taste Of Africa

Since the temperatures dropped down to the mid 20s today, I decided that it made sense to make a stew. Because nothing says cool and refreshing like a hearty summer stew.

I Do Not Understand Time

We have officially witnessed more than 50% of the moments this year has to offer, and yet the seconds that have tick-tocked away can’t explain the last 184 days. How is it that March and April felt like the longest decades ever, yet May and June came and went in an instant?

Around The World In 10 Photos

Just over a week ago I was nominated by my friend Charlie to take part in another photo challenge. This is not the first photo challenge for which I’ve been nominated, but since I haven’t done one in a while, and since I can’t travel at the moment because of physical distancing, I figured it…

A Baking Marathon

Apparently, I was all sorts of ambitious on Saturday when I decided to put into action my desire to make Pain Au Chocolat. Honestly, what the hell was I thinking? All I know is that sometime last week I was perusing the vast array of food porn that one finds littering the various corners of…

Sinking Bagels

I wasn’t planning on making anything today, and then bagels happened. To be honest, I’m not even sure how I landed on the idea of let’s make bagels, but I did, and I’m not complaining.

Rage Smashing Berry Scones

I woke up this morning feeling pretty good. Then I found myself trying to keep my rage in check as I fell into a black hole of news.

This Is Not The Recipe You’re Looking For

In my ongoing and physical distancing inspired adventure to try new recipes, I decided today that I should probably put to use the frozen chicken legs that have been patiently awaiting their culinary fate since they were delivered in my Trotters big box-o-meat a week or so ago. As per usual, I sought inspiration through…

Just Visiting?

I haven’t been on a plane for more than 7 weeks. Shocking, right?

Lousy Smarch Weather

This week has felt like it has been approximately one billion years long, and at the same time I can’t seem to believe that today is Friday already. I could have sworn on Wednesday that it was the 39th of Smarch. How the hell does that work? Maybe it’s the weather?

One Giant Leap

Nine years ago today, I jumped out of a perfectly good airplane. It would be the first in a line of perfectly good airplanes that I would eventually jump out of.

Beers, Blades, And Meat. What Could Go Wrong?

First and foremost, I need to begin this post by sending out a huge thanks to Brett and Trotters Butcher Shop and Charcuterie for hosting an incredible butchery class for me and my family on Thursday night. Between the lessons and laughter, the charcuterie and the beers, I’m pretty sure this was probably the best…

The Decade That Was

While the decade doesn’t really end until the final stroke of midnight on December 31st, 2020 (approximately 353ish days from now), I thought I’d take a minute to review the last 10 years because it’s apparently the thing to do. More specifically, I thought I would reflect on some of the things that have had…
