The last time I went to Las Vegas I went on a meat eating binge and had a steak pretty much every night. I think part of the reason is that I had a bunch of dinners planned for business/networking and of course everyone wanted to get steak. I was lucky enough to to some of “the best” steakhouses in Las Vegas, here are my reviews:

  • Fresh ginger root
  • Fresh lemon
  • Honey
  • Raw sugar
  • Water
  • Bourben

Chop the ginger into finely chopped pieces. Throw into a pot with the water. Start it at a really low heat.

Let it sit, and sample it every few minutes.


My sister Imed me this morning with a link to these crazy sushi making machines. I love sushi and enjoy the hard work that goes into making it, however if you could automate the sushi making process and still provide good sushi, and even lower prices in the process I am all for it.

If you are a regular reader you may know that I have a garden that is providing more than enough cucumbers and tomatoes than a single man could ever want, but lately my pepper plants have been growing like mad. I have about 10 pepper plants, some little round ones that are still growing, some big greens one that are still growing, 2 habanero plants-still growing, and 3 or 4 jalepeno pepper plants that are producing 6-10 peppers per day.

I have been spending some time this year in the garden and this is the biggest payoff to date.

There are 8 cucumbers/pickles, 2 handfuls of “sweet 100” tomatoes, and 3 jalepeno peppers.

I recently gave a business update (like 3 minutes ago), and that is going pretty well. I am happy with working for myself and enjoy the flexibility…i just find myself being lazy as hell. Perhaps it is not that I am lazy as much as the fact I am easily distracted. An example is that I worked 6 hours in my yard on Thursday of last week. I weeded my garden area, removed the excessive amounts of dill that decided to take over the yard, tilled the soil, added organic fertilizer (horse shit!) and planted roughly 26 types of plants. Of course being a nerd, I organized them in excel and plotted my yard out in illustrator:


After my chicken recipe got rave reviews (pause for laughter, no one reads this!) I am deciding to continue the tradition with these brilliant brownies.

I made a batch last week for my own use, and made a batch for some co-workers on sat. They are really easy to make and have a simple list of ingredients. I will put the original recipe here followed by some notes:


So I had limited ingredients, and limited time and found a really simple recipe that was great over at

This is the original recipe:
8 chicken thighs
6 small red potatoes, quartered
1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil, or as needed
1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh oregano
1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste

I was back in the USA 2 weekends ago and went to a new “Super Target” store. It is like a target, but has a grocery section in it…and they carried one of the products I was craving up here in Canada, but could not find anywhere: Cavenders Greek Seasoning:

Friends, family and visitors, what I am about to tell you may shock and disturb you, but it is the truth. There is a revolution happening as I type this, food as you know it is changing at a dramatic pace. Pizza is about about to get a facelift.


Plant that herb garden

I planted a tiny herb garden a few weeks ago and have been very happy with my decision. being able to go to my porch and just snip some fresh herbs whenever I want is a great feeling, and it makes any food taste better. I wish I had more space to grow more vegetables/herbs. The total cost was maybe $40 and it takes maybe 2-3 minutes of watering a night. Totally worth it!
See more progress on: grow a garden


Jenn and I finally made it out to the Guelph Farmers Market this weekend, and I am glad we did.

Usually we sleep in or cook breakfast or one of twenty things that prevent us from going to the farmers market. This week we made it there a few minutes before it shut down and picked up some deals.
