Pizza as Vegetable? Okay; Why Not Chocolate, or Cheez Whiz, or Kool Whip, or …

This entry is part of a series, Follies 2011»

The Congress is at it again. They want to be able to count pizza and French fries as vegetables on school lunch menus. Well, even that’s not entirely true; it’s the tomato sauce on the pizza that would count.  (Everybody knows that no self-respecting kid, […]

Follies: Edible Clay, Eu de Play-Doh, and a Website You Can’t Live Without

This entry is part of a series, Follies 2011»

Kids will eat anything. Which leads to toys like Yummy Dough’s edible clay. Roll it, shape it, bake it, eat it. Seems I’m only about 50 years or so too late; mom always hated it when I ate clay from the back yard. Did wonders for […]

Fish 4 Friday: Why Let the Kids Get All the Good Stuff? Cajun Shrimp Mac 'n' Cheese

This entry is part of a series, F4F 2011»

One of my favorite food magazines, Chile Pepper (sadly, it now appears the mag is defunct), recently shared an article that really attracted my attention. As a kid, I could eat my weight in my mom’s homemade macaroni-and-cheese. (My mom’s still the best home cook […]

Friday Follies: WonkaWorld? What's Next??

Arguably, it’s about food…

In spite of the story’s bizarre line, I still enjoy the Gene Wilder version of the Chocolate Factory. (Sorry, Johnny.) Okay, I can’t watch it every day, right? Too much chocolate. And it makes me eat. A lot.

Got Modern Kids? Then Give Them the Ketchup They Crave

Kids these days. I’ll tell you. They are not only the same picky eaters that your parents accused you of being, they want stuff you never considered. Like spicy food. Thai, Vietnamese, Mexican, all with plenty of zing on the tongue. Even school lunchrooms are paying attention to the trends in spicy and zesty. […]

Friday Follies: Who Says the Apocalypse Ain’t Here? Pop-Tarts World…

On Tuesday the End of the World as We Know It made an appearance, and almost nobody noticed…

The Location: Times Square, New York. (That ought to give you a clue, right there.) The Scene: The Grand Opening of the new, unique, and glamorous Pop-Tarts World. That’s what I said: Pop-Tarts World. Yep, sushi has […]

August BOM: The Healthy College Cookbook

Ah, college eats. Pizza. Beer. (For some, at least.) Sub sandwiches. Pop-Tarts. Hamburgers and hot dogs, if you’re really living well. Canned chili. Ramen noodles. Microwave burritos. (In fact, anything that comes in an easy-off wrapper and fits in the micro.) Popcorn. Cookies and pretzels and gummi bears, usually as a three-course dinner. Gatorade […]

Killer Ribs, or Jitterbug's Secret Recipe Has Finally Met Its Match

Yesterday’s massive pigout light repast from the grill had me a bit sated at the time, but as dinner loomed on the horizon today I was hungry for more from the grill. (Loomed on the Horizon = It was after breakfast sometime, and I had to come up with an idea.) Two teenaged boys […]
