Use an edible nest for your Easter eggs this year, not a basket

Edible next
This is more eggciting than a fancy Easter bon-nest

Holy – very holy – crap; Easter is this weekend! Fudge! …. Or semi-sweet chocolate morsels.

Easter is a time for crafts with the kids and dying Easter eggs. Usually you put those eggs in some basket like they were stolen from the mama bird with no remorse. A basket is a commercialized symbol of “the man” that marginalizes the plight of the the bird; mass-produced in some factory that doesn’t care about your eggs or whether they’re organic and non-gmo. (You millenials sold on dumping baskets yet?) Continue reading “Use an edible nest for your Easter eggs this year, not a basket”

It’s getting warmer! So make chili?

…but keep the chili
It’s  getting close to my favorite time of year. That time of year where we can trade in our jackets and gloves for tank tops and sandals. Swap our snow shovels for sand shovels on the beach.

 

Soaking in the warmth and laying out in the sun is wonderful which is why I was flabbergasted when my friend told me she would miss the cold weather. Her reasoning? It would be too hot to make her favorite chili recipe.

I would do anything for…this Meatloaf

Meatloaf recipe
For crying out loud, you’re going to run toward this meatloaf like a bat out of hell

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Oh I would do anything for love …

I would do anything for love, but I won’t do that. OK. Maybe I’ll even do that for this amazing Meatloaf. I’m talking about this recipe, not the artist. I probably should specify.  Meatloaf is great but can he compare to this meatloaf?

Ariana Grande got a “charcoal grill” Japanese tattoo not “7 rings”, so here are bbq recipes for her

Bbq at Tiffany's
I want it, I grill it. I want it, I grill it.
You like my steak? Gee, thanks, just bought it

Classic basic white girl mistake: go to the tattoo parlor and pick out a tattoo of a beautiful Japanese character you think means “love” but it actually means “mud”.

A fintastic fish stew

So sofishticated
It’s fintastic!

I encourage you to get a little freaky with fish for this dish. Too often people are afraid to cook with fish anything beyond some salmon wrapped in tin foil. This stew will convince you to expand your menu rotation. It’ll also teach you to get friendly with your fishmonger, that’s the person who cuts the fish for you, in case you’ve been just calling that person your fish guy. You’re gonna want to work with fish man Mike to find a good piece of swordfish. You don’t need a super large portion, let your fishmonger know you’re throwing it in a stew and see if you can snag a little piece or two. Continue reading “A fintastic fish stew”

Easy Kale Salad Recipe: Go Ahead, Be Basic

This includes beans and nuts so it’s high in protein, perfect for someone on a diet eating one meal a day or a gym rat or honestly just a rat. Seriously if you have a rat or guinea pig feed them kale or they’ll get scurvy just like a pirate. Now that I think of it, people can also get scurvy from lack of greens just like the pirates, so put down that Big Mac and make this!  Continue reading “Easy Kale Salad Recipe: Go Ahead, Be Basic”
