Try This Frozen Applesauce Instead of Expensive Dog Ice Cream

Dogs love treats, and humans love giving dogs treats because we like seeing our dogs happy and excited. Not all treats, however, are created equal. Some, like table scraps that contain a lot of salt and fat, are not good for your pooch; and some, like those little dog-specific “ice cream” cups, are very expensive.…Read more...

Make a Refreshing Two-Ingredient Cocktail With Lemonade and Punt e Mes

Last night, I had some vaccinated co-workers over to drink wine, eat pork, and shoot some arrows with my new compound bow. It went well (with only one slight injury), but I am very tired today. So tired, in fact, that the idea of squeezing citrus fruit amongst the dirty dishes and empty wine bottles is far too much…Read more...

These Meats Will Help You Build Your Charcoal Confidence

New kitchen toys always get me excited about cooking—sometimes a little too excited.

How to Keep Your Slaws From Getting Soggy

Cabbage-based slaws—cole or otherwise—are transcendent when properly executed, but so easy to mess up completely. No one wants a bowl of cabbage shreds swimming in overly-sweetened, watered-down mayo, and—luckily—no one has to resign themself to that fate. To keep your slaw from sogging out, you just need a little…Read more...

How to Make 'I Live Alone' Ganache

One of the perks of living alone is the freedom to interpret the phrase “proper meal” however the heck you want.

Go Ahead, Add a Little Cheddar to Your Brownies

I love a boxed brownie mix. I think it is very hard to make a brownie that tastes better than one made with the Ghirardelli dark chocolate mix, especially when you consider the price point and amount of effort required.

Can an Air Fryer Revive a Cold Popeyes Biscuit?

A fresh, hot Popeyes biscuit is a precious thing: tender, salty, and greasy—everything you want a fast food (or, sometimes, a homemade) biscuit to be. But something terrible happens once they cool.

How Scary Is Gas Station Sushi, Really?

“Gas station sushi” has become something of a punchline, a thing that one obviously should not eat, a thing that should not exist.

How to Become a Vegetarian (or Eat Less Meat)

I have some personal news: I went vegan about three or four months ago.

A faded and atmospheric old Japanese village

Old and long-abandoned Japanese villages are hard to top when it comes to looks and character, but this wonderfully faded and atmospheric little mountain settlement more than holds its own. Slowly deteriorating signs for souvenirs and refreshments point towards better, and previously busier times, yet just like so many of Japan’s old resort towns and crumbling day-trip destinations, they are now little more than dying reminders of a very different past. The clearly visible decline unsurprisingl...

Fry Your Eggs in Heavy Cream

Now that we are deep into the month of May and Easter is firmly behind us, you might think that the time of cream eggs is over. This is only partially true. The time of creme eggs has (sadly) past us by, but the time for cream-fried eggs is just beginning. At least for me.Read more...
