Relocating is one of the most stressful events endured by modern man, inducing insomnia, binge eating, temper tantrums and the nagging feeling that something important is getting lost in the shuffle. Between our desperate attempts to cram a house and workshop's worth of furniture, tools and…
I enjoy making music, writing, yoga, hiking & camping, lifting weights, cooking, traveling, permaculture, growing my own food, reading, fire performing, avoiding employment, beer!, eating good food, mind-blowing sex, roadtrips and rescuing kittens. Mostly I aim to break through boundaries & get off the grid.
My favorite things to cook
I love making stews and soups. . . anything hearty and wintery that should only be stirred with a wooden spoon for that authentic old-timey feel. :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Chicken soup and knaydelach, Noodles and Pot Cheese, and Shoe Fly Pie (it's just stew, really, but my Dad always thought it was more fun to say Shoe Fly Pie)
My cooking triumphs
Thanksgiving Turkey every year since 2001, with my bitchin' beer based gravy.
My cooking tragedies
Yogurt. I was using the oven, and I was turning it on 250º for a couple minutes, then turning it off and leaving it for an hour, but I was also having a BBQ, and I got distracted and forgot to turn off the oven (and almost at the end of the whole process, too!) and the silicone lid of the metal bowl melted right into the now curdled and cooked milky mess. I'm still pretty disappointed about that lid. :(
