I would love to say I grew up eating shellfish, so that way i would have a lot more street credit when it comes to developing recipes like this one, but that would be a big fat lie. In fact, I hated it. Without ever even trying. But first off: my brother was HIGHLY allergic […]

This last weekend teaser of 80 degree springtime weather? Holy nuts and bolts. We’re screwed.  Or if anyone else’s upper lip is perspiring just thinking about this past weekend then you are not alone. Welcome to the beginning of six months worth of pure cheese sweats. It’s only downhill from here. Unless someone comes up with scented air conditioned […]

Is it just me…. or does this Dumb & Dumber scene also pop into your head any time anyone mentions “sea bass”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J_y_tQMtnYo And that is maybe my 29801023981 D & D reference on this blog.

Oh the joys of summer dieting….. said absolutely no one ever. The fact that last years shorts could easily be mistaken for a bikini bottom due to the increase in size of my tail wagon is not helping my current situation in any way, shape or form. If there was a non invasive method for stomach […]

“That’s one small step for  (wo)man, and one giant leap for mankind”  My feelings exactly after successfully steaming my first lobster on my own and not having a total water works fiesta and drowning myself in complete remorse.  I’m definitely one of those “ignorance is bliss” type of people when it comes to my food […]

Things I didn’t do last night: this. Things I did instead. Watched Lemonade on repeat. Maybe four times. Maybe more. I even made a nasty lemonade drink with a little hot sauce as attempted tribute to the album. Definite fail. However the picture didn’t totally suck so I still posted it on social media. Word to […]
