The next elements of the Halloween dinner that we'll review are the poison apple dip, and zombie guts! The guts are startlingly easy — I saw a photo on-line of something that was captioned as "Halloween herb-bread guts." The bread in the original photo is on waxed paper and looks almost more glazed, like a […]

Okay! That's enough scholastic mumblings for a while — time for something lighthearted and fun: last Halloween's dinner! As I've mentioned previously, I occasionally get the urge to cook — either for a specific holiday or for a quiet moment in the midst of scholastic madness, so I feel back in control of myself and […]

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 […]

As we work towards shaping social realities, research on women-centered societies which are based upon cooperation and partnership facilitates a more sophisticated discussion of cultural alternatives. This discussion also ensures that the voices of women of color are respectfully heard and recognized as both researchers of integrity applying a wide variety of methodological approaches to […]

I'm writing this having just gotten back from my little interview session, or whatever it's called, at the photography studio for the boudoir shoot groupon which a dear friend gifted to me. I have to say… I'm starting to feel somewhat uncomfortable about this. A quick note: while I will mention the name of the […]

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 […]

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!
