Recipe: How to elevate your BUFFALO CHICKEN DIP game

Buffalo chicken dip rules. For me, it's a food group of its own, a cheesy, spicy, creamy blend of perfection. I first tasted buffalo chicken dip as a freshman/sophomore in high school. My family headed to my cousin Blainey's house for a UFC pay-per-view event, and he had whipped some up for the occasion. Love [...]

Black Crown Initiate – ‘Violent Portraits of Doomed Escape’ review

Black Crown Initiate murders me.

Intro to sous vide: The boujee crock-pot you need in your life

Crock-pots suck. I made that pretty clear when I called them "the most despicable appliance in culinary history," and I stand by the sentiment today. Thing is, I received some significant blowback for that post. You crock-pot clingers just couldn't accept that your beloved plug-and-go appliance might actually make you a bad person. Which it [...]

Album review: Fallujah ‘Dreamless’ just ain’t it

Oh, Fallujah, how you frustrate me.  This Bay Area group is like a mix-and-match six-pack of four Head Hunters and two Bud Light Limes. Reach in and pick a beer.  Ooo!  A Head Hunter! Tasty. Time for another? Pick again.  Womp womp. Bud Light Lime. Boy, I bet you’re disappointed, huh? Especially after that Head [...]
