http://nothing-found.com/2013/12/10/clam-chowder-conflict/Over the weekend while 20-Somethings were off schmoozing with their fabulous friends at their weekend parties with their weekend energies and lust for life, I stayed in and cooked. There was a particular meal which cloistered me so. It came from a NYTimes short video guest starring chef April Broomfield. She was making the most Read more

Peanut Butter Cookie- Frangelico Flashback

Peanut Butter Cookie- Frangelico Flashbackfeatured

http://nothing-found.com/2013/12/08/peanut-butter-cookie-frangelico-flashback/I see my father, drinking his disgestif, inquiring whether there’s something to “sweeten life.” A meal is incomplete without dessert, he says. I’ll tell you something. It’s tough not going home for Christmas. I haven’t been home in almost two years now, and of course I miss my family. But I also miss the Brazilian Read more

http://nothing-found.com/2013/12/03/muffin-malapropism-2/A fool and his muffin are easily parted. During the week, I assume most people try to pretend like they’re healthy.

Another one bites the dust… These chefs with their cheffy ideas, making mounds of plastery dough on television then magically replacing one tray with another that’s ready, fluffed, painted, sculped, sprayed. Who knows what the Read more

Bread and Butter Bucolic

Bread and Butter Bucolicfeatured

http://nothing-found.com/2013/11/28/bread-and-butter-bucolic/I graze on the kitchen counter after working the urban fields. I walked too long, roamed too far, so now I take the cream–harvest it, deep from fridge of the nearby mini-mart. If saltines will most likely be supper, then at least may the butter be fresh. Simple pleasures: bread and butter. Every night when Read more

Carnivorous Consonance– Smoked Pork Hock

Carnivorous Consonance– Smoked Pork Hockfeatured

http://nothing-found.com/2013/11/25/carnivorousconsonance/We  haphazardly hack at hocks heralding how a hussy it seems; through fat we find few fleshy figs for feasting. I can blame Jamie Oliver, his revolution, the new partnership with Sobeys and the ads, or simply the lispy English charm. Either way, the need to cook has once more entered my life with full Read more
