Making Fresh Pasta Noodles

Although a lot of people may argue otherwise, I actually try to maintain a balanced and healthy diet when I’m not making posts for this blog. While balanced and healthy may not exactly mean eating salad everyday, I do try to avoid going to restaurants and getting ready-made grocery store food at every opportunity I […]

Chicken Bacon (Sex &) Fessenjoon

The ladies and gentlemen over at Sex & Fessenjoon recently picked up on my Ghormeh Sabzi Sushi and they positively loved the idea, so much so that they suggested I make a Fessenjoon Fusion dish just for them. If you’re not Persian, which is impossible because everybody is a little Persian on the inside, you’ve […]

Why you shouldn’t make Pie: A Rant

Before I start this post, let’s make something perfectly clear: baking is witchcraft, and witches should be burned at the stake. No exceptions. When I first started this blog, I jokingly wrote that I’d share both my successes and failures with my audience. I never actually intended to share my failures, until I made the pie […]

Review: Python Fillet

Every so often I like to remind myself that I’m an apex predator, a creature so ferocious that it kills and eats anything in its path. Like all other apex predators, I like to pick up the most exotic type of meat at my local supermarket and pretend I caught it with my own two […]

Fancy-Ass New York Cheesecake

I know what you’re thinking right now – why did I call this a “fancy-ass cheesecake”. I’ll tell you why. In my world, there are two kinds of food: the first kind is one that tastes good, requires little work, and is generally very easy and fast to make. It doesn’t necessarily have to be […]


Currywurst needs no introduction, but to pay tribute to this amazing fast food, I will provide one anyways. If you ever find yourself in Berlin and you’ve purchased great travel insurance that you want to take full advantage of, Currywurst is the food for you. Served traditionally from food-carts or small Imbiss huts in Berlin, […]

Bacon-Wrapped Leg of Lamb

If you’ve ever been to Costco, you’ll know that it’s the equivalent of the Playboy Mansion for foodies. It has everything delicious and convenient to eat – in bulk. So obviously it’s a place I try to avoid as much as I can, especially since I end up buying over $200 worth of meat every […]

Banana (Apple, and Bacon) Bread

After a long vacation and numerous culinary experiences, I’m finally back in my own kitchen and ready to cook. Truth be told, it’s been a while since I’ve cooked and I’ve forgotten most of the things I knew, including the fact that I can’t bake for the life of me. That’s why this week I […]

Review: Camel Burgers

Well, I’m globetrotting again and this time I’ve ended up in Sharjah. I was in Tehran only a week ago trying traditional foods like boiled lamb head/tongue/brains and chicken liver/heart for the first time, but what I had here really tops my charts in terms of exotic meats. In the past I’ve prepared and eaten […]

Hamburger Sushi

It seems like we’re spinning in circles with all the recipes either involving burgers, sushi, or pizza. But why find new ingredients to cook with when we haven’t yet exhausted all the possible variations of the foods we like best, right? Right? Hamburger Sushi Anyways, this time I’m cooking out of the sunny (and sandy) […]

Review: Emirates Plane Food

Emirates Airlines has a reputation for high quality service, a fleet of brand-spanking new planes, and of course, good food. On my recent journey from Vancouver to Dubai via Seattle, I thought I’d look at my food a little more closely and give my honest, unadulterated opinion of it. Although we were served 3 meals, […]

Taco and Chicken Korma Scoops

At this point you may be wondering why every time I make some cool, normal sounding food, there’s also some odd brown food made with it. First off, that’s apparently called ‘fusion’ cuisine, so get with the times. Even the British Military uses Tikka Masala in their ration packs, so it’s not too far fetched […]

Review: Tofurkey

Whenever I go out shopping for groceries, I like to get myself one food item that I would not ordinarily get and try it out. Sometimes it’s duck, other times it’s crocodile steak, this time is was Tofurky. When it comes to tofu products, I generally shy away because they taste disgusting to me. The […]

Pull Apart Party Loaf Bacon BBQ Burger

Pull Apart Party Loaf Bacon BBQ Burger. That’s a mouthful to say (and eat) as you’ll see below. I was inspired to make this monstrosity after wasting time on Pinterest and getting my weekly fix of Epic Meal Time. Thing is, I watch shows like Epic Meal Time and I think to myself, heck, I […]

Grilled Cheese BBQ Burger

One of the biggest hurdles I’ve had to overcome when making this blog was taking good, appetizing pictures. I love taking pictures, and I’m good at it anywhere outside of the kitchen. But when I’m making food, I hate any and all distractions (this excludes Sumedha, alcohol, and music).

Hamburger Pizza

Ever since I’ve unplugged from cable television, I don’t get a chance to watch all the appetite inducing shows that the Food Network has to offer. Granted, I’m not a big fan of all the competitions they do, but generally it’s something to watch when you’re eating.

Shooter Sandwich

A shooter sandwich is a magical thing. It’s like a treasure chest filled with your favourite foods, it’s simply perfect. The pictures you’re about to see tell their own story, so enjoy.

Butter Chicken and Ghormeh Sabzi Sushi

When it comes to Asian/Middle Eastern cooking, the most common ingredient you’ll find is rice. It’s easy to make, it tastes great, and it goes well with every kind of dish.
