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...

        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

                          Lemon lime meets cherry and orange in this limited edition Sprite flavor extension. It's subtle and pleasantly refreshing... which is something that can't be said for this drink's namesake.

                          Review: Sprite Blast

                          This mostly-sour version of Sprite is a nice break to mix up your taste buds, but flavor doesn't seem like something that would be sustainable in the marketplace in the long run.

                          Coca Cola Battered Cherries

                          It’s been a while since my last post, but I hope that all is forgiven once I share this fun recipe with you. The original idea for Coca Cola Battered Cherries came about last year while I was...
