I made it vegetarian and now I’m taking one step further: vegan spaghetti carbonara. Can plants replace the magic that is egg and Parmesan cheese? Definitely not, but this comes close. It provides the same too-full feeling that most creamy pasta dishes do, leaving you feeling as if you swallowed a brick.… Read the rest
I’m back on my bullshit.
By that I mean I’m trying to eat vegan, again. This is probably my third serious attempt at a non-dairy lifestyle and I feel realistically meh about it. There is a reason most people don’t go give up all animal by-products, and that’s because it’s really hard.… Read the rest
It took me many years to come around to oatmeal cookies. I just never got them. Why would you have raisins and oats when you could have chocolate chips and white flour? About two weeks ago I started to mature as a person and realized the error in my ways. Both types of cookies are valuable and deserve respect.… Read the rest
HelloFresh is one of the many meal-delivery subscription services across the great internet. I can’t tell you what sets it apart from the other services, but I can tell you my friend Katie really wanted me to use her promo code.
Normally, three two-serving meals cost around $60. The code takes $40 off, so this HelloFresh box cost me $20.… Read the rest
When I think of ramen, I think of eating one million noodles and then going home to digest in front of the television. What I don’t think of is button-down yuppies drinking beer at 8:30 PM while consuming boiling-hot soup in 90 degree weather. Yet, that is what happens in DC.… Read the rest
I found a can of coconut milk in my cabinet about a year ago. Not the coconut milk that cool young people sip on their way to SoulCycle, but the thick, creamy stuff that vegans bathe in. I wasn’t sure what to do with it for months and months and then it hit me: chickpea and sweet potato curry. … Read the rest
I recently began the Pasta Lifestyle. Exactly what it suggests, if you live the #pastalifestyle you eat a lot of pasta. Linguine, rigatoni, ditalini and everything in between. This is a subset of hedonism, since humans would eat pasta at every meal if they made decisions based purely on pleasure. What is holding you back?… Read the rest
I’ve had a bag of red lentils in my cabinet since I’ve moved in to my new house. I may have even scavenged them from my last place, meaning they could be years old. Do lentils expire? I’m not sure, but I’m committed to using them. There were also a few rogue sweet potatoes in my kitchen.… Read the rest
Tacos, tacos, tacos. Are you happy SEO?
This post is extra-self-promotional because it’s based off a request from my (sole) Patreon supporter. This lovely anonymous person donated to my page and unlocked the reward of picking a recipe for me to make. Their reward also includes me feeding them that recipe, but they didn’t seem interested.… Read the rest
I eat a lot of salsa. When restaurants offer free salsa I just lean my head back and pour the stuff in. Even though I’ve been eating salsa since I was a wee lad, I’ve never made it. You can get a solid bottled version from the super market, plus the salsas from restaurants are so good.… Read the rest
