Recipes and food combinations that the Fed Up team creates

Food Flop

There are times when nasty-sounding food combinations end up becoming your favorite recipes. But then there are those things that sound perfect in principle, but in reality end up being food flops. Hotdogs can be tasty. Pizza is always good. So a ‘hotdog-pizza’ would be awesome…right?! No. A layer of tomato sauce, topped with onions, […]

Dining Danger

Food is a beautiful thing. BUT, it can also pose some serious pitfalls to the unprepared or ignorant. I am well versed in many of the side  effects of certain edible delicacies, yet often times I decide to just accept the consequences involved in order to make that perfect meal. Well, the other night a […]

Know Your FACTS: Making Crap Tasty

One of the highest compliments I have ever received for my culinary creations was in college by a friend of mine who said I make crappy food taste good. We are all frequently stuck with unappetizing junk that we somehow are supposed to turn into a meal. This could be because our budget restricts us […]

Make This

After my earlier ‘Rant’ about chestnuts and how freaking difficult they are to find being sold in American grocery stores, I felt like I needed to share a good example of why these damn things can be such useful ingredients.

The situation: It’s zero-three-hours since our plane was supposed to depart. We are now officially stuck in transport-limbo. We were all herded off the plane and  imprisoned  in the Paris airport lounge.  We are all anxiously waiting for our flight to be ‘green-lighted.’ My fellow would-be-passengers are getting combative, as the clock slowly passes lunch […]

Thanksgiving Leftover Awesomeness: The best use for eveything you wish you could have eaten on Thanksgiving

Leftovers seem to get a bad rap all the time…often times they are exiled to the far corners of the fridge in hopes of being  forgotten about and tossed out once they develop a trash-worthy layer of mold. And I agree, fresh is almost always better, but random bits from previous meals do have their […]

Stop Sniffing the Flowers…EAT THEM

How we interpret the ‘taste’ of the foods we stuff our face with, is highly dependent on how our other senses perceive things. This is especially the case with ‘smell.’ Our sense of smell plays a huge role in the way we experience a food’s flavor and what we think it ‘tastes’ like. If smell […]

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 […]
