a good laugh

a good laugh

Laughing is really important to life. If it didn’t exist, maybe mankind wouldn’t exist. If nothing could make you laugh then maybe life wouldn’t be tolerable. Happiness and joy are really important, but could you be happy and joyful and not laugh? Probably not. I like seeing people so happy that they start laughing and…

the mind of a chef

the mind of a chef

I’m watching the PBS series “The Mind of a Chef” and I’ve learned stuff already from it. Like maybe I want to go to Japan and eat lots of ramen and seafood there (that’s from season one with David Chang). There’s a segment where they do cook a dish and talk about it and I…

Some of my favorite comedians talk about food. Two I really like are Jim Gaffigan and Gabriel Iglesias. Gaffigan’s material on food is really funny, basically observations about Americans’ approach to food in today’s culture. And food is a universal topic as well as a way to connect with a foreign culture. I’m sure that…

There’s a Netflix documentary series called “Chef’s Table” that is really an indulgence to watch. So much tasty food in high definition. The story for each chef is unique and some are just wild. To really want to be a chef takes a real love for the craft. It boggles me how each person is…

Italy

bread :: Italy Italy is beautiful for its art and food, at least to me. But if you go for those things, it’s good to like Renaissance-era art, because the country looks like it’s stuck there. The gorgeous old buildings of Venice, Florence, even the lazy Pisa tower just keep me mentally in the Renaissance.…

And all the other varieties you like, I probably like too. But I can’t eat…

nutty for the nooch

I’m trying new things these days. The local grocery store had a big sale on Bragg products. I use apple cider vinegar regularly and the sale was better than the online prices so I stocked up. Then one day I was reading the weekly grocery store mailer (the digital one; I ironically tossed the paper…

I’ve been wondering why people are buying bags of popcorn at the grocery stores. Popcorn is only for the movies, and when you watch a movie at home you buy the microwave bags and eat that. Why eat popcorn outside of a movie watching setting? Why are there so many brands of popcorn? They all…

two ingredient bone broth recipe (super-duper fancy)

two ingredient bone broth recipe (super-duper fancy)

There are many recipes for bone broth out there, but it’s really not hard. A child could make bone broth. Just don’t buy bone broth thinking it’s the same as homemade, because it’s not the same. Don’t drink the packaged broth in the paper cartons; it’s not going to be good for you to drink…

Last time I wrote about dinosaurs. Today I’ll talk about bone broth. I’m currently doing a modified bone broth cleanse, where you just drink bone broth all day instead of eating food. I’m also drinking raw whole milk, which is incredibly tasty and beneficial for your health, unlike pasteurized milk, even organic pasteurized milk. And,…
