Jalapeño business

Here's a kinda funky song that I've been super into recently. Listen while you read! :) And yes I know I know my title font doesn't handle tilde's very well... I'll fix that soon. So at my office we have this concept of GSD; Get Shit Done. Every Tuesday, all engineers have an event on their calendar that'll allow them to hopefully work quietly without any meetings or interruptions. This usually ends up meaning that almost all the engineers work from home that day. So, I'm usually happily worki

Making Anerica Great Again

I can take 0 credit for this post title because my friend Aneri themes her birthday based off of all the puns she can make with her own name. This year with all the ruckus that ever entertaining Donald Trump has caused, it only felt right to have her birthday be "Make Anerica Great Again." PSA: Please do your research before this election season :) Also... I HAD to include the video for this song because 1) Katrina Kaif looks gorgeous and 2) it's so damn catchy that it's become my new obsession

Everyone needs a 'Lil Dicky' in their life

19 July, 2016
So recently it was one of my closest friend's, whom we lovingly call Lil Dicky, birthdays. Can't say she's entirely fond of that nickname, but that's 1/2 the point of nicknames anyways. In that spirit, here's some Lil' Dicky for you to listen to while reading this post. This may be one of my favorite cakes I've made so far. I've realized that I am a BIG BIG fan of chocolate whiskey cakes. The coffee and whiskey that you add in tend to cut the sweetness of the coffee perfectly and only leaves a

So I don't have a themed song for this week's post BUT I will leave you with my new obsession for the week. I love the original song by Zella Day but this mix is also amazing. Enjoy! Ever since I was a kid, I was always that weird one who LOVED spinach. All my friends would fight and complain but I would ALWAYS ask for more. I know. I was that kid. I was also that kid who would happily drink a glass of plain milk every day. Anyways... I love spinach. Whenever I used to make omelets for my mom,

I am something of a potato aficionado. I have eaten far more than my fair share of potato, roasted, baked, chipped, fried, stir fried, mashed - you name it, I have probably tried it. I love potatoes, and today I decided I wanted to eat potatoes for lunch, and this is what I came up with. These are not especially nutritious, but they're not necessarily bad for you either. I would, however, recommend adding a vegetable or something somewhere on the plate. Or you could just eat potatoes for lunc

K this second post for the week took a bit longer than expected but I finally perfected the pictures so we're good now. YAY Post #2 for the week! And that too, to celebrate one of the nerdiest holidays out there! STAR WARS DAY! All the wonderful puns. Also because this recipe is banana filled, I HAD the little song by the Minions from Despicable Me stuck in my head. So I figured I should share that adorableness and mental torture with you guys. Anyways... after being home sick for an entire

Hello and welcome!

We've known each other pretty much forever, and this blog is our way of documenting our culinary exploits, and some non-culinary exploits as well. We're not always on the same page, or in the same state, or even on the same continent, but two things are generally true:
