Pantry 911! I ordered five bananas and my shopper brought me five bunches. What do I do with them?? Pantry 911! Does anyone know what might fix this chili? It's not terrible, but I just don't feel like eating it. It's boring.
Humble Banana Bread (with a twist)
I grew up in Australia, spending the majority of my free time climbing trees, tearing around fields, and getting absolutely pummelled by waves in the surf. (Also riding kangaroos to school, naturally.) And to fuel all that activity, I practically ran on fruit - a whole range, from mangoes and mulberries to figs and lychees. But the banana was my trusty companion in day-to-day life. Breakfast before a test? Banana. Energy booster before a school cross country race? Banana. Snack on the go? (To be eaten halfway up a tree, of course.) Banana! But in the sweltering Aussie heat, they ripened fast, so even in a household full of voracious appetites, we'd end up with bunches of them freckled liberally with more brown than yellow. Happily, my Mum's a wizard with a wooden spoon, and brown bananas are the best for baking with, so we enjoyed a plethora of baked goods - banana muffins and bread in particular were household staples.
One-Bowl Rhubarb Crisp
Growing up in the rural Midwest, my family grew a lot of vegetables. Our garden, neat rows that easily spanned a quarter-acre, grew everything from tomatoes and potatoes to trellised grapes and row upon row of the sweetest corn imaginable. It was a lot of work, and as a kid, I’m not sure I appreciated many of the things my mother lovingly grew (and we begrudgingly weeded and harvested!).
Quiz: Which Cookie Are You?
For years and years, cookies have been many peoples' go-to dessert or sweet snack! Cookies can either be store-bought or homemade and come in various sizes, shapes, flavours, colours and textures, which is why they are a unique food item for many individuals on this earth! I've picked three types of cookies and a fun, entertaining and easy quiz to help you explore some of the most common cookie types.
Going Vegan, then Going Back
I was thirteen when my mother put our family on a vegetarian diet for a month as “a challenge”. To this day, I don’t really know what prompted her to make this choice. If I had to guess, it would be a combination of the new health books she had been reading and the sheer cost of meat when feeding hungry mouths.
The Rise of Ninja Toast
AUTHOR'S NOTE: This piece was written over 10 years ago when I was in high school. I decided to post it here for a) a way to not lose it and b) to see how much my writing has improved since then. I hope anyone who reads this will get a chuckle from it. I plan on re-writing this piece in the near future. Please enjoy!
"Crazy" Not To Love.
Living in Bremerton, WA you get at least six months of a rainy grey filter on your life. In spring, when the sun finally breaks through the clouds to warm your skin it is magical. All you want to do is spend time outside. The streets, and trails, are suddenly littered with people ready to take on the PNW outdoor lifestyle. People walking, riding their bikes, hanging out with their furry pals, and people eating. There are, admittedly, tons of “mom and pop” local places around town to grab a bite while you are out. Although, none like Crazy Eric’s hamburgers.
8 Tricks Photographers Use to Make Foods and Drinks Look Better
It is the job of food photographers to make their photos look good. They can make their pictures look perfect by using some tricks of their trade. It is completely legal to do so because they are advertising the food with the picture and not the meal itself.

How To Tell Which Wine Will Pair Best With Your Dinner
I mean there’s nothing better than a home cooked meal at the end of the day, right? Ok, maybe a home cooked meal AND a bottle of wine.
Tonight, I'll Be Eating Ramen Because I Spent $6033.38 on Uber Eats Last Year
Yes, you read the title right. In the span of 12 months (March 2020 - March 2021), I somehow managed to rack up a $6033.38 Uber Eats bill. Before lockdown, I'd already had the app downloaded on my phone but only used it sparingly - once or twice a month at best. However, with the onset of the pandemic, my spending on food delivery went from bimonthly to every single day. It didn't help that Uber Eats' "Tonight I'll Be Eating" ads flooded my social media algorithm. You know the ones I'm talking about.
I Yam What I Yam
I blame Bruce. I’m sure this issue is deeper and more complex than just Bruce, but he gets the bulk of my ire. Now I just need to figure out which Bruce.
