    Review: Blk Water

    It's bottled water, but it's black. Why? Because people are dumb.

      A Pair of Peach Preserves

      This post probably should have gone out about 2 weeks ago, as peach season as ended for most of us here in the US, but in case it hasn’t, or you find yourself with a bunch of leftover peaches then...

        Sauerkraut Soup-More Adventures in Fermentation

        It’s Monday afternoon, and a cool, overcast, rainy, Autumn day. I worked all weekend so worked a couple of hours early this morning and am taking the rest of the day off. I’m not, normally, a huge...

          German Apple Pancakes

          For years I have wanted to travel the Kettle Moraine Scenic Drive in Autumn. It’s a beautiful drive that takes you through the Kettle Moraine State Park as well as a number of cute, little...

            Review: Surge (2014)

            It arrived in the 90's. Challenged Mountain Dew. Failed. Grew a rabid fanbase. Now Surge returns 12 years after being discontinued. Is the fuss worth it?

              Review: Monster Energy Ultra Black

              A black cherry-flavored Monster? That actually tastes good? And has zero calories? Where can I find it? 7-Eleven.

                  Mango Chipotle Chicken

                  It’s September and the kids are back in school. It’s hard to believe that summer is behind us, such as it was. I don’t know about your area of the world, but here in Wisconsin we didn’t get much of...

                    Wayne’s Jerky

                    One of the things I love about living in Wisconsin is discovering all the great, little, local food producers around the state, from brewers and distillers, to cheesemakers, to farmers, to...

                      Fermented Veggies

                      I haven’t mentioned it yet this year, but we belong to a new CSA, thanks to my wife. It has been a couple of years since we last belonged to one and this winter my wife decided it was time we...

                          West Side Market-Cleveland

                          I just got back from vacation yesterday. We spent 5 days in Cleveland, Ohio. It may not be the most exciting destination in the world, but my wife has lots of family there, both on her Mom’s and...

                            Raspberry Pie

                            It’s July, and all around this country that means that raspberries are in season. While I love all berries, I am especially fond of raspberries, especially black raspberries, which are becoming...

                              Review: Sprite 6 Mix
