The Potato Chip Sandwich

That’s right. You [subvocally] heard me. The. Potato. Chip. Sandwich. You know you’re a vegetarian / vegan when you’re at a BBQ and all you can eat are potato chips and burger buns. At least at BBQs in the 90s, when Boca Burgers were the only meatless alternative and a rare and gag-inducing sight. I absolutely…

New Year, New You Dinner Bowl

New year, new you? New year, new foods! For all of you go-getters clamoring to invest in a $1000 juice cleanse and “detox*” from the barrels of alcohol and bricks of sugar you consumed in the latter part of 2017: have I got the plan for you. It’ll regulate your digestion and get rid of…

Tatchos with The BEST Vegan Queso

If ever there were a dish of true (food) pornographic proportions, Tatchos are it. If you’re asking what the hell tatchos are, hold on to the germ-ridden seat of your pants, kiddos: these are nachos with tater tots in place of tortilla chips.

If this doesn’t sound appetizing, you’re a freakin’ idiot.

Back in the day I actually added to the horror by mixing heavy cream into that plasticky orange goo before adding the shells. I could also consume the whole box in…

White Bean & Walnut Collard Wraps (Archive)

  You might be thinking that this recipe looks like a pile of random ingredients. You would be correct. Basically I neglected to plan my last grocery shopping trip and came home with arbitrary and seemingly mismatched food stuff. Bitter melon? I’ll throw that in the cart. A mound of teff flour I’ll never ever…

Kung Pao Lotus Root (Archive)

**Gu’s: an unassuming Szechuan joint on Buford Highway that serves many a dish teeming with peppercorn and chili. The stuff of my wildest food dreams. Their kung pao lotus root is incredible (among other dishes) and 100% worth the longish drive. When couch potato fever hits me in the middle of intense Szechuan withdrawals, however…
