Grilled Peach and Corn Salsa Recipe

Grilled Peach and Corn Salsa Recipe

I like to use the Reminders app by Apple, which conveniently syncs between my iPhone, my computer and my iPad. It’s very handy. I have fourteen individual lists of reminders, each one packed full of stuff to do. There is even this great function where you can set a reminder to repeat at a specific […]

Anything Goes Mashed Potatoes

Anything Goes Mashed Potatoes

Things have been pretty busy around the studio lately, and I’ve been eating more than my share of frozen burritos simply because I haven’t had the time to cook anything decent. Well, to be honest, it’s more about not having the time to go buy ingredients, so I end up eating whatever I have on […]

Shrimp Spring Rolls

Shrimp Spring Rolls

When I’m busy, I rarely get the time to cook as much as I would like (as you can tell by the sparse posts as of late). This is in part because I rarely get out the shops to buy food. I end up eating a weird conglomerate of leftover ingredients from shoots and whatever […]

Sweet Onion and Bacon Jam

Sweet Onion and Bacon Jam

You know what is awesome? Bacon. You know how to make bacon even more awesome? Add it into everything you ever cook. I’m joking of course, because I’m sure that you already put bacon in everything. Bacon milkshake? Yes please! My buddy Kelly has been bringing her version of bacon jam to a lot of […]

Baked Quinoa Patties and Broccoli Pesto Quinoa Salad

Baked Quinoa Patties and Broccoli Pesto Quinoa Salad

Since I moved to St. Louis (nearly two years ago – wow) there is one habit that I have picked up: buying in bulk. In New York you have to only buy the exact amount of stuff you need at any given time because you have no place to store anything in your tiny 400 […]

Super Bowl Recipe: Baked Hot Wings

Super Bowl Recipe: Baked Hot Wings

Last year in our first January in St. Louis Dr. Fiance and I tried to organize a Super Bowl party. After mentioning it several times our friends finally told us that unfortunately our television was just too small to accomodate a true Super Bowl party. Our television, which was enormous in our NYC apartment has […]

Asian Broccoli Salad with Sesame Ginger Dressing

Asian Broccoli Salad with Sesame Ginger Dressing

Last week I had some friends over for some pulled pork and I made cole slaw to go with it. My recipe called for both red and green cabbage. The thing is, if you use two whole cabbages to make slaw then you have enough slaw for about fifty people. So I made half that […]

Brandied Cherries

Brandied Cherries

I have been walking past the fresh cherries in the store for a while now and never picked any up. Until today. I had a cherry tree at the house I grew up at, and remember fighting the birds for the cherries. The birds were willing to eat the cherries before they were ripe though, […]

Of Quinoa Pilaf and Pronunciation

Of Quinoa Pilaf and Pronunciation

Yeah, so turns out that I have been pronouncing “quinoa” like a rube and not like the well-heeled food aficionado that I should be. Apparently, it is not pronounced as mighty “quinn-o-a” which is how I’ve been saying it hither and yon, but more like “keen-wa” or in some circles “kee-NO-aa.” I feel like Whole […]

Curried Beef Dumplings

Ok fine, one more snack food post, and then I’ll make something healthy. This time I have a good excuse: poker. I had to bring food to a boy’s night poker game and we needed junk food. I was looking to do something interesting and the standard chips n’ dip thing didn’t really get my […]
