So, as the beautifully illustrated post by my wife (see below) attests, we were recently in the UK, and spent a good portion of that trip inside pubs enjoying traditional pub food and cask-conditioned, hand-pulled ales. I describe the beers in this way for a reason. You see, the old joke that Americans never seem […]

Wow… that title is a bit long, but it’s the best description I could come up with. This meal is absolutely delicious, quick and cheap. It is adapted from our favorite master chef – Jacques Pepin. On his PBS show Fast Food My Way (WATCH IT!!!), Jacques creates seemingly difficult and creative dishes in no […]

Supposedly, the Food Network is canning Emeril Live! I won’t say this is 100% true as I’m still doing research, but it looks like it could be true. His contract is up in the spring and Food Network will keep Essence of Emeril going, but cancel Live. It’s not enough to bring this girl back […]

We’re back from our quick, 5-day trip to Northern England to visit Jonny’s family and I may just go to bed at 9PM like I did last night! The problem with these quick trips home (I feel like it’s kind of my home these days) is that by the time you’re over the jet lag, […]

Can’t figure out what to make tonight? Well, we couldn’t either. So we found some misfit stuff and threw it together and, you know what… it was pretty good. The roasted beets gave this otherwise ‘soft’ meal some necessary crunch, as well as color. The sausages we had were some delicious veal links with sage. […]

During a brief, but animated, post-lunch discussion of the various Food Network “stars” with several of my work colleagues today, it was posited that Alton Brown’s show “Good Eats” is popular with men, and men only, because it’s a show about gadgets. For me, Alton Brown is one of the few non-annoying characters on the […]

Just found out that another one bites the dust for the oldies (but true goodies) from the Fool Network. Sara Moulton has either been 1) asked to leave the Food Network by not having her contract renewed because she’s not K-RAZY enough, has relatively no cleavage, is actually classically trained and/or doesn’t have a tag […]

***I’m BAAAACK! As you may remember, weeks ago I wrote a post about a fish recipe we made using cheap, white bread called “Who Said There’s No Room for Wonder Bread in Gourmet Cooking?” Well, We Are Never Full readers, UNICEF, UN leaders and government agencies around the world, we may have discovered something unbelievable […]

This is a famous (and rightly so) southern Italian dish, popularized in red sauce joints across the north-east of America. I’ve eaten it at Franco & Luigi’s in south Philadelphia and at La Villa in Park Slope, Brooklyn, amongst other places, and enjoyed the contrast of the garlicky sausage, the heat of the pepperoncino and […]

After my best friend, Shannon, first moved back home after our fun ‘snowboard/ski bunny’ post-college years slacking off in Breckenridge, Colorado, I visited her and she took me to eat at a place with a cuisine I had never eaten before – Lebanese. We went to Lebanese Taverna in Arlington, VA, one of six locations […]

We really fell in love with Tortilla Soup after our trip to Santa Fe in June, 2006. We decided to make it at home and, with an adaption of 4 or 5 recipes blended into one, we’ve come up with our version of this spicy, warming soup. It’s pretty healthy and hearty too. We add […]

So, recenty I’ve been noticing that my blog-rant about the annoying Rachel Ray (and many other Food Network ‘personalities’) has been producing big hits on this blog (ok, big hits for this blog, which is probably nothing compared to other well-known ones). This, of course, excites me since I used to get happy when we […]
