Post Apocalyptic Food Procurement or, You Died of Dysentery

Not long before our country decided it was time to start another era of civil unrest making “preppers” look less stupid, I began to wonder about, and subsequently educate myself on, how food staples we take for granted (like salt, spices, sugar, flour, yeast {bread/brewers} vinegar, vegetable oil etc) came to be and how to…

Timbuktu Cafe – Augusta, GA

Yesterday I was out and about town and somehow found my way down Walton Way where I happened to spot this “new” restaurant. Because I am who I am, I did a U-turn and went in for lunch. I admit that while I have no idea what West African food tastes like, it can’t be…

Going straight to the vlogging?

Since we’re finally going to get serious about this blog we figured why not jump right from 2001 to 2010 and become current (well, as current as you can being old). Then I realized, I don’t have the equipment and I don’t want to spend the money. I have an old GoPro Hero+ that I…

New category, new content, new opinions, new look and why.

Our readers (if we still have any) know we are horrible about new content. While we could blame it on YouTube (seriously, do people read further than the headline anymore) and prove that Buggles is correct (think “Video killed the radio star” but more like vlogging killed the blogger something or another) we take full…

Necessity is the mother of all invention…… in cooking?

Most of us know this adage. We’ve been exposed to it all our lives. Most of the time you can see the truth in it as you get a “new and improved” anything. Have you ever considered it’s application in cooking? Probably not consciously but I guarantee you’ve made some sort of “this and that”…

The Cute Cubain (My take on the Cuban Sandwich)

Shredded pork roast, ham, cheese, pickles, mustard on a bun. That’s it. It’s as simple as that. Or is it? Why am I writing a post about it if it’s so simple that people have probably been making these things and not realizing that’s what they’re making? Because I like to write? Well I do,…

Augusta Seafood Company

This will be a first for us but we felt that it needed to be done. We’ve never “reviewed” stores or merchants before and we realized today that’s a shame.  If we like something enough to be around for a while, we need them to succeed. In order for small businesses to succeed, they need…

Cadwalladers Cafe – Augusta GA

This restaurant could be so much more. The owners and atmosphere are fantastic but the food is just so-so. That makes us sad because we didn’t expect our experiences to be so….. ordinary. We’ve eaten here twice now and had nearly identical experiences. It’s unfortunate because with a better chef, it could be so much…

Chicken Cacciatore

The definition of Cacciatore is “hunter” in Italian. In cuisine, it refers to a meal prepared “hunter-style” with onions, herbs, usually tomatoes, often bell peppers, and sometimes wine. The most common is with a pieced bone-in chicken. What this means for the home cook is that you can take a LOT of license with how you prepare your cacciatore. The recipe I used can be found…
