Starve, Volume 1 by Brian Wood

Starve, Volume 1 by Brian Wood

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Starve is one of the most unique books I’ve read recently. It’s listed as being dystopian horror; but I didn’t find the story to be particularly horrific. 374 more words

Kitchen Nightmares

I’m often surprised at my 7-year old daughter’s favorite TV shows. She still likes the cartoons, but has supplemented those with teen shows on Nickelodeon (yikes!) and The Dukes of Hazzard on CMT (What the?). 463 more words

Peppered Chicken with Saffron Polenta

A couple of years ago, I was contacted by a casting producer asking if might be interested in auditioning for a cooking show that was being produced for a “major television network.”  I, of course, said yes, and agreed to produce a number of savory dishes (in 2 days) to photograph and submit before my Skype interview.   373 more words

Top Chef Ep.#6: San Diego, Beer and Bannannaise

This episode bored me and I didn’t even feel like recapping it, but my OCD won’t let me skip an episode. Neither the challenges nor the actual food prepared was actually exciting (to me), but let’s take it from the top. 1,539 more words


A Big Fat Gay Top Chef Wedding

Another week, another Top Chef adventure; this time the chefs are off to the ‘Date capital of the US’, where they pick up three large baskets of dates, each one containing a different variety (Zahidi, Medjool and Deglet Noor), and damned if I knew these existed. 1,669 more words


Unctuous: I Don't Think That Means What You Think It Means 

Here’s an unsurprising piece of information: I watch a lot of cooking shows. There are things about them that I just love. I like seeing the twists that people put on things. 809 more words
