As was noted yesterday, Biaggi's essayists examine the emergence of patriarchy in order to persuasively analyze and explain our current global issues — such as environmental devastation, a near-perpetual social injustice which particularly oppresses women and the poor, the increasing corporatization of the massive war and prison industry — then posit a brighter and feasible […]

Happy New Year!! :-D Now that this irritatingly wince-inducing semester of comps is over, I've been very much getting into relaxing. As a consequence I've also had a few interesting experiences and idle thoughts which I thought I'd write down here. For example, I had two weirdly amusing things happen to me the other day. […]

In our last pain-filled episode the armadillo eggs, meatloaf, and cheeses were left well-wrapped and half prepared in the refrigerator, and blinky-Collie-with-glasses went off to a delicious and thoughtful dinner with her very kind housemates. Moving on! The next night I strode fearlessly into the kitchen, well prepared and snapping latex gloves onto my hands […]

Armadillo Eggs – the Agony!

In: Cooking, Craftiness, Random

I like trying new (and simple, please!) things to cook, so I've told my housemates if there's something in particular that interests me, send me the recipe. The first I heard of armadillo eggs was when a housemate excitedly showed me a near-completely graphical — and very simple — recipe for them. An idle google […]

So, wa-aa-ay back in this posting I had discovered the rutabagas, grabbed some, and was heading for the cash register posthaste, due to an incipient on-line appointment. As I stood at the register I watched the clerk either passing things over the bar code reader or (when things like produce had no bar code on […]

As is probably well-known by now, I am very much a "seat of the pants" style of cook: I take the recipe, eyeball it for a short list of ingredients and ease of preparation, head to the internet to research any unfamiliar terms or ingredients (Intarwebs I can haz! :), occasionally dump ingredients or make […]

Today I'll share a small batch of recipes, I think — but first a quick note: I really like the Zatarain's Creole food! It's surprisingly tasty to me, and the boxes make it easy to make. So far I've tried the Red Beans & Rice and the Dirty Rice Mix (to both of which I […]

So as I mentioned yesterday, the birthday dinner included homemade Italian cream sodas, and I promised to share the recipe today, with my notes below it. I'm also very pleased that I remembered to catch the recipe's URL too this time! Here it is, and check out her lovely photos too: Italian Cream Sodas Holiday […]

So it was a dear friend's birthday over the weekend, and I wanted to try making something tasty just for him at this week's Monday Night Gaming Horde (hereafter known as the infelicitous sounding MNGH). He'd let drop — after much prompting — that he kinda liked pierogies? So I went and looked them up. […]

I have found a wonderful new/old cookbook! I think it was originally written in 1960 or so. The author, Peg Bracken, got sick of all the recipe books written by male chefs which deliriously caroled in incessant glee about how much fun it was for women to slave over a hot oven all day — […]

Bestiaries depict mythical, moralizing animals, but are also potential allegorical sparks that can bloom into brilliant mental bonfires. My bestiary is this mythologizing animal's fascinated exploration of beauty & meaning in the wonder of existence -- in the hopes of inspiring yet more joyous flares of intellectual passion.

Enjoy!
