“Earlier this month, planners broke ground in Seattle’s Beacon Hill neighborhood for what will be the nation’s largest free and open edible landscape, the Beacon Food Forest.”

there are three types of people in this world, people who prefer pie, people who like cake, and people who are mentally ill and never fit into any type of “there are two types of people in this world” conversations. now since i am a pie guy, (obviously since pie is certainly so much better than dry, crumbly, crusty cake), and today is March 14th otherwise known as pi day, i decided to share with all of you the meaning of pie, an amazing food blog prepared with love by Kelly Dean Yandell. the site is filled with all kinds of recipes from cupcakes to casseroles, including an assortment of pies perfect for pi day such as this amazing american apple pie seen above. so take a look for yourself, (warning: you will get hungry), and if you just can’t get enough, simply click here. happy pie day!
it’s just come to my attention that somehow, someway i have yet to post an article on the topic of alcohol. i have no idea how this could have happened, but it has, and so now i’m here not only to apologize, but to rectify this grave oversight. where to begin? oh alcohol, please forgive me. you are always there when i need you. you make the boring bearable, the butt-ugly beautiful, and even the biggest of babies brave. is there anything you can’t do?! you are so mixable and delicious that i wish i could drink all of you up. unfortunately though, that would kill me. so instead i’ll turn to the talents of brazilian artist/illustrator mr. Fabio Rex. as you can see from above, he has created a series of beautiful, graphic based mixed-drink recipes consisting of the most popular cocktails that man has ever concocted. so instead of being forced to suffer through one Buffalo Sweat after another, i can skip straight to the classics and enjoy! of course the ingredients are written in Mexicant, but anyone who has half a brain and/or google translate, (and a BAC of less than .15), can easily figure them out. so go have a look for yourself. they’re all beautifully done and extremely easy to follow. just ask this guy...
p.s. luke, this does mean i’m not mixing your drinks anymore.
a lot of the problems i have with cooking shows on TV are the jerks that host them. for the most part, their unbearable loud-mouth-know-it-all’s who are just looking for a little attention and even more money. so in my search for cooking blogs/recipes/videos that i could actually stomach, i stumbled over this website called GOOP which apparently was created by Gwyneth Paltrow as a resource of sorts for women and mothers, (or swm’s googling Gwyneth Paltrow). now just to let you all know, i really like Gwyneth Paltrow, (unlike some people apparently). in fact, if you were to respond to that by saying something along the line’s of, “then why don’t you marry her,” i would be like “okay… she’s very wifeable.” so when i came across her amazing food page, i was only all too eager to share it with the rest of you. above is just one of the many videos that she’s posted, this one for a dish called bibimbap, a sort of “everything and the kitchen sink” type korean dish. i suppose what i like most about this and the other videos is just how casual and down to earth she really is, almost as if she’s not Gwyneth fucking Paltrow, but just some mom sharing one of her favorite meals while learning about the dish herself. it’s certainly a breath of fresh air when compared to some of the other alternatives out there, and the recipes are amazing. so go take a look for yourself, even if you don’t like to cook. after all, you still get to stare at Gwyney.
