Weird Food Week

Hello again everyone, I’m bringing my recipe forward a couple weeks this time to celebrate national curry week. Or is it national chocolate week?

God knows why we’re having both at once this year but I’ve had vague plans for chocolate curry for a long while so it’s about time that they saw metaphorical print.

It’s time I made a chocolate madras.

Mega Mushrooms

Hello again everyone, today were looking at the last of Cowley’s Fine Foods’ vegan jerky samples, their Shiiiitake! Thats Hot!

Now some people spell the word “shītake” with one “I”, some people spell it with two and I spell it with a little line known as a “macron” to denote a long vowel sound.

Cowley’s, though, have decided to use four “I”s.

Four “I”s that emphasise the pun that they’re making.

Battle of the Bears

Hey everyone, it’s october. And you know what’s special about october?

It’s the month with halloween in it.

And yes, I know, halloween’s still almost a month away but what use is a holiday product review if it goes up on the holiday? I’m doing this early so that you have time to track down the items involved, should you feel the need.

Or maybe just to warn you what’s in store if you knock on my door this year.

Either way, I’m talking about gummy bears.

Three different brands and four or five different products, for a full comparison of every sort I’ve seen.

Jalapeño Jerky

Hello again heat eaters, today I intend to bring you a couple of things from Cowley’s Fine Foods but, for starters, let’s just look at their mild and flavourful Sweet Potato and Jalapeño Jerky.

It’s an interesting combination of flavours that isn’t clarified at all by its packaging.

Light and Leafy

Hello again heat eaters, for april I have another recipe/review fusion for you but this one isn’t my review of someone else’s recipe. No, this month I’m looking into an odd idea that recently caught my eye.

Chilli leaf salad.

I never thought I’d do a salad for this blog. Practically every salad I make just comes down to sticking my favourite raw veg in a bowl with olive oil and my latest chilli infused vinegar. There’s nothing exciting about it and it certainly doesn’t make for a main dish.

But, while this recipe won’t ever be the bulk of a meal, it is definitely an attention grabbing concept. Enough so, I feel, to stand on its own here.

Spicy Sweet Potato Dip

Hey folks, I mentioned my fellow food blogger Dana from I’ve Got Cake before, when I modified her brownie recipe, but this time I’m straight up sharing one of her posts.

You see, I had some friends over for boardgames yesterday, chilli boardgames that you’ll be hearing about soon, and I needed a quick, thematic snack that fit a wide range of dietary requirements.

The answer? Dana’s sweet potato and sriracha dip, simplified just a step further using a readily available vegan sriracha mayo instead of the regular sauce and a much harder to find vegan version of standard mayonaise.

It came out smooth, even creamy, and rather delicious, with a nice top of a two out of ten after-heat. It was gone in no time but the recipe remains and is so very simple.

I’ll let the author fill you in on the rest:

I've Got Cake

I’ve been driving around with a dent in my car.

Some asshole backed into me while my car was parked and left a dent that looked like Bigfoot pushed in my rear quadrant.

Happened about a month ago and I finally got the goddamn thing fixed.
That was on Monday.
