Grilled Pizza – version 2

I got the idea for this pizza from a co-worker who said he’s done this in a conventional oven. If you’ve read the previous entry on grilled pizza much of this will look familiar… Ingredients: 1 ball of frozen pizza dough Olive oil BBQ sauce Mozzerella cheese 2 Chicken breasts 2 bell peppers 1 large […]

Grilled Pizza – version 1

My last college roommate, Dan, showed me a cooking show called ‘The Surreal Gourmet‘. Among other crazy things I saw this man cook salmon in a dishwasher. The host also grilled pizza in one episode… that’s right, grilled pizza. I thought he was crazy at first, but after trying it myself I have to say […]

Pot stickers

The wonton wrapper is a rarely used item in the supermarket, but just by making this dish I see endless possibility within view. Any combination of meat and finely diced vegetation can be wrapped up in this device. It can then be steamed, seared, boiled, or broiled… truly a multi-tasker. Inspiration for this is a […]

Paprika crusted chicken

This dish wasn’t anything impressive, but I thought it was very tasty. I just took chicken breasts and soaked them in Half n’ Half for about an hour. This seemed to give them a little more adhesive quality. Then I liberally rubbed them with paprika, salt, and black pepper. After that I breaded each breast […]

Building a computer

In the last couple years I’ve built computers for my girlfriend and my cousin. They both knew exactly what they wanted in a PC. With a little research I was able to choose some good components that weren’t on the cutting edge, but were more than capable of doing anything they wanted to do. I […]

What makes a good anime?

7 Feb

I’ve watched quite a bit of anime, read many books, and watched many shows over the course of the last few years. However, it wasn’t until recently that I had been able to sufficiently quantify what it was about a story that made me enjoy it. After all, I’ve enjoyed things with very rich and […]

Loosing touch…

16 Jan

I don’t know if everyone has this problem after they leave a large cultural environment like school, but I’m finding it very difficult to keep in touch with people that I considered to be good friends of mine. It has nothing to do with me not being interested in them anymore, or that I don’t […]

Chili

For the most part this is the chili that has now become standard fare for me. Its basic idea came from ‘Good Eats’ as usual. Alton does his in a pressure cooker, but since I don’t have one of those, I cook mine in a slow cooker of some kind. The basic recipe I do […]

Drawing – Gabriel

Watching alot of anime inspires me to draw. This is an origional character I drew really well once and am now struggling to recreate. I stole the pose from a picture of Mamimi from FLCL that I happened apon one day. As always, comments are appreciated.

New Calphalon cookware

I found this cookware on Amazon.com earlier this week and couldn’t pass up the deal. Its all made from hard-anodized aluminum… and its all safe to use in the oven/broiler 🙂 I’ve been dying to be able to finish a fritatta under the broiler so it gets nice and brown on top without me having […]
