inaugural grillage

after a winter of this, going for a 6 mile run on 60°F with the smell of spring in the air inspired me to light up the grill for the first time of the season. salmon. simple and super delicious.

Everything is Awesome!

i very much enjoyed a 100% organic lunch delivered from organic valley HQ thanks to a new delivery service. i haven’t had a lunch like this since being relocated after the fire ( there’s no on-site kitchen at our new digs ). tater tot casserole, mind bending chocolate pudding goodness and a chocolate chip cookie […]

Perfect Purple Moon Ice Cream!

some might recall i’ve been concocting purple moon ice cream which is my 100% organic homage to the froot loopy blue moon ice cream without the artificial food coloring, or other mystery ingredients. it took a few iterations but i’ve finally perfected the recipe. nearly everyone – young and old – who taste it, loooooove […]

90% chicago style.

recipe: organic cheeseburger soup!

here comes the science: why cilantro-haters hate cilantro

six years after i started documenting my dislike of cilantro ( and here ) after learning i was not alone upon reading a boingboing post, they point to new research on the genetic basis for why cilantro-haters hate cilantro which is linked to a variation in a gene associated with our sense of smell. see […]
