Politics, shmolitics. Elephant in the room here. Tomorrow is election day and I think the “Dooms Day Preppers” are going to be having the last laugh. Any which way you spin it, it’s a total crap shoot and just like this recipe, Americas nuts are going to be up for roasting no matter the ending […]

I’ve been delayed with posting 1) Because I’m basically a slug covered in salt these days 2) I’ve been working like a dog on projects outside of this blog (which I hate when I allow other work to get in the way, sorry guys) 3) I’ve been watching West World and therefore my mood has […]

A couple weeks back I got together with some incredibly talented ladies who share the same love for food & pixels that I do. Which is kind of ah-mazing when you don’t have to apologize for indulging in some cold grub post picture snapping…… (yes, I’m one of those, but not publicly, or at least […]

I’m on what feels like my tenth cup of coffee right now, and by tenth I mean second, and am pretty sure someone decided to slip a little speed into the ol’ jo this morning. Not exactly sure how to exert all of this new and completely unwelcome burst of adrenaline but thinking I should probably […]
