YumSugar Tests an Explosion: The Latest Kraft Mac & Cheese

PopSugar is an aggregator megaportal that has lots of blogs, pictures and reviews. YumSugar is the food blog there, and often has interesting and useful information.

Pause While You're Having Fun and Remember...

Independence Day, 2010. Has a nice ring to it! Over 230 years of liberty, and (hopefully) many more to come. We don’t know what you have planned, but the Chile Underground isn’t doing a bit celebration this year. So much else going on in our lives that we’ll take a pause that refreshes. Oh, we […]

Fish 4 Friday: Grill-Seared Fish With Cucumber Slaw, Just for the Halibut

Hurricane Alex made landfall overnight, and we got some rain. Much-needed rain, and we’re grateful. We’re also grateful that our rain chances are going down for the weekend.

Round Rock Ribfest Preview

We’ve been having a lot of trouble defining the name for tomorrow’s landmark event. The singular nature of the pretext excuse reason for this drunken debauchery bunfight exciting celebration means we can’t use things like “First Annual” in the designation. It’s clearly not going to be merely a birthday party either. What to do, […]

How to Make Instant Noodles Taste Like a Feast

First, a quick reminder of what we’re up to here. We want tasty noodles, and we want them quick; we don’t want to make a lot of mess; we don’t want to break the bank. “Taste like a feast” is relative too. You can always splurge, but what if you’re on a tight budget? […]

This entry is part of a series, Ireland 2009»

You know you’re going at it too hard when you have to take a day off from your vacation to rest up. We just couldn’t bring ourselves to spend another fourteen hour day overloading our brains with more lovely memories of Ireland! We needed to […]
