Sure, let’s tax soda

Up to now, I’ve tried to avoid “food politics” pieces on the site because I tend to think those debates get very overheated quickly, and I really try and avoid the comments on this site to become the kind of cesspool of invective and not very clever insults that my soccer blog often had. But […]

A great way to jazz-up corn on the cob

Who doesn’t like corn on the cob? Seriously, ignore the cliche for a moment. Who doesn’t like the stuff? (Okay, teenagers with braces don’t count.

Making pizza in the Big Green Egg

To put it simply: It works really, really well. My father made two homemade pizzas (dough and all) in his Big Green Egg this weekend. This really showed off one of the Egg’s unique qualities, which is its ability to hold a very high (over 600 degree) temperature. This has always been the critical reason […]

What have I been drinking recently?

Here are some quick summaries of some beers I’ve enjoyed in the last couple weeks as the weather has gotten warmer. St. Bernardus Prior 8 – Enjoyed a 750 of this with my father last week. It really wonderfully well-balanced Belgian dubbel. Not too hop-heavy with plenty of more subtle flavors like caramel and spice. […]
