Colorful, ain’t it? So I’m sitting at work, at my desk, banging out Java code, when I realize, I don’t feel much like cooking tonight. Now I get that feeling from time to time and I simply just don’t cook. Beck will usually fend for herself by eating some cake or a piece of pie. The only […]

These sandwiches are definitely a crowd pleaser in my book. Can they even be called sandwiches? I read somewhere that the taco is actually a variation of the gyro. Whatever, they are tasty and without a doubt the great taste is a combination of the garlicky tzatziki sauce with the roasted lamb and mint. In this preparation, […]

Okay… I’ve figured out how to win the current Presidential election. Create a 3 day work week. That’s right. I have been on vacation all week this week; maybe call it a “staycation” as we decided to go nowhere. But, if I promised to make the work week 3 days and the rest of the week, were […]

Waste not, want not, right? I will say that I am very much a fan of leftovers. It is just Beck and me here, but I usually cook enough for 4 or more servings. If it’s a weeknight, after we eat, we’ll pack up the leftovers for lunch the next day. Or sometimes I’ll try and get […]

Well, I’m back – at least for another year. It has been a long time since I have been out here blogging or keeping up with everyone’s captivating work. I apologize to my blogging buds and I promise to do better. I haven’t any stories of woe or melancholy to attempt to sugarcoat why I haven’t been […]

It’s been a long time. I shouldn’t have left you without a dope beat to step to… Well, I have been in some kind of non-blog mode; a funk, a fog. It is sort of like a cross between writer’s block and jock itch. I don’t know how or why this happens, but every so often, I […]

Now here’s a dish representing, I think, a cultural history that is one of the tastiest; Creole and Native American. I guess it is technically Acadian French (Cajun) and Native American, but I like to Creole it up a bit. Plus, Southern Louisiana dishes always have me befuddled as to which is Creole specifically and which is […]

Here’s an easy question: who doesn’t want a quick yet tasty weeknight meal? Well, this is one. I have to admit though, it took me a minute to grasp the idea of cornichons in a sauce over my chops. I had to do a little research on this. Turns out the joke was on me. Apparently this […]

Whilst pondering what to do with leftover stuffing from wonton for wonton soup; we made like 50 dumplings. I bounce over to Eating Club Vancouver to find just what I was craving – meerkat brains! I shouldn’t kid. I am sure that some of you find the cute meerkat cute. But the point is, that stuffed savoy […]

Pronounced /por’ket:a/ (or sometimes “porketta”). If you are a “POP”, that would be a “pal of pork” then porchetta is just plain delicious! Well, please allow me to write freely here for a minute. This post, and any and all subsequent, were surely not to make it here. I had made the decision. I was shutting the […]
