Junk for Food

Who the hell buys this crap!?! It was Black Friday. I was being a responsible American citizen and dutifully in the midst of my annual holiday shopping spree. Then, while battling my way through hoards of eager shoppers in a local department store, I stumbled upon this nonsense… Now there are PLENTY of stupid kitchen […]

Best Bite: Thanksgiving Leftover Pizza

So this past week’s Best Bite was definitely my annual Thanksgiving Leftover Pizza. I already wrote about how to make it and how amazing it is here. But this year’s was especially tasty. I used more cranberry sauce and bigger chunks of tender turkey…and maybe my leftovers were just that much better than what I […]

Fridge Freak Out

Grocery shopping in often an enjoyable activity for me. I love browsing the various aisles and searching out unique foods to stuff my face with.

Stuff Your Pie Hole with a Pumpkin-Pie-Sort-of-Thing

I wait and I wait all year for that moment when Libby’s canned pumpkin shows up in ridiculous quantities at every grocery store. Pumpkin is freaking AMAZING. Yet it is one of those seasonal foods that seem to only be appropriate when ‘Libby,’ whoever the Hell that is, says so… Oh…and quick rant: Did you know […]

Everyones A Local?!?

OK. This is BS. It seems like the cool thing to do now is brag about eating ‘locally produced’ foods. I am fine with that as long as they taste good…but in general, I think the hype about eating locally has gotten a little crazy. It seems like many food manufactures are trying to jump […]
