Fast Food on the way to Skiing… and Waffle Cabin!

Fast food might be cheap, full of preservatives, and commercialized (I mean it’s a hundred billion dollar business), but sometimes it’s savory and keeps you alive during long car trips. There’s also something to be said for the ability to create the same taste over and over again and have the food to be tasty …

mMMm…Hand Meat Pie at home

Apparently this is also called a Pasty Pie, but I prefer the name “Meat Pie.” It involves a crust (I like store bought puff pastry), and a delicious meat filling, which can be whatever you want. I was in the mood for a beef and potato filling because no store I know of sells shredded …

Well it’s about 45 minutes faster than paella, and it’s drier than pasta, and has a special stickiness that only comes from something cooking in its own gluten. Fideua is usually …

Ichabod’s Tavern

Excuse my sudden hiatus. I took a few bad pictures, had a few bad nights, and now I have fallen many restaurants and even more days behind. But do not worry, March is teeing up to be one heck of a culinary journey, and I cannot wait to share it with you! Tonight I went …
