Some recent eats and treats.

It "speaks" for itself. 😀

It’s been quite some time since I last posted an article on my frantic adventures in cooking and feasting. My responsibilities for charlieuniformtango and my relocation to Seattle among other pressing issues prevented me from doing so.

I intend to fix that immediately! Lol, I have amassed a extensive collection of foodie pix that will need to be touched up before they go live, especially since I have the most recent version of Photoshop again to bring more life and lighting to these dishes (it was either going to be Photoshop or a brand new camera).

But I won’t bore you with those minor details. When July rolls in, I hope to share with you a visual buffet of summer snacking compliments of watching episodes of Rachael Ray, Cupcake Wars, Chopped!, The Next Master Chef, Hell’s Kitchen, The Next Foodnetwork Star, Top Chef and Top Chef Masters.

Cheers,

Anthony

Happy Pi Day! (via Make Myself at Home)

Happy Pi Day, everyone!

Happy Pi Day! Happy 3.14, fellow nerds! I learned this year that today is also Albert Einstein’s birthday. It’s a Pi Day miracle! For all you nerds & non-nerds alike, here’s another tasty post from my good friend Momo. Tell me I’m not the only one drooling over these photos! Even though I know Catherine LOVES this holiday, she was nice enough to let me share a recipe for Pi day. So here is a delicious Peanut Butter 3.14 to celebrate this fun holiday! This … Read More

Praying for the people in Japan…

 

People gather outside Sendai station after a powerful earthquake hit northern Japan on Friday March 11, 2011. The ferocious tsunami spawned by one of the largest earthquakes ever recorded slammed Japan's eastern coast Friday, killing scores of people as it swept away boats, cars and homes while widespread fires burned out of control.

…and all along the Pacific Rim. How horrible and tragic; I hope my mom and relatives are safe in the Philippines and I also hope my former roommate and great friend, Yuhei Miyauchi is okay. He was going to school in Tokyo. Please keep them in your thoughts.

Some favorites on Facebook…

Thanks to Darran from FB for posting these wondrous pix. So yummy!

Alas, it is finally here. The Beast is Back is finally up. Still working on making that code original though. 😉

So many goodies…

…and more reason to love FoodBuzz. Here are some sweets that they posted in preparation for Valentine’s Day. More coming. My new blog should be up and ready next Monday.

Cheers.

Foodies and friends. I’m back using HootSuite.

Foodies and friends. I’m back using HootSuite in my attempt to streamline my tweets, 4sq, FB, and WordPress posts. I hope my pix show up.

FoodBuzz it Up!

If you aren’t already a member of the vibrant and engaging food community on FoodBuzz, I highly encourage you to take part; bragging rights aside – I discovered 500 friends on that site all within

Pork Scallopini by Ken Canterbury.

the chilly month of January. Funtastico. Who wouldn’t want a family of gluttonous, free-wheeling aspiring chefs who share palatable transcriptions for feasting and pictorial munchie bliss!

Sigh.

Mind you, I don’t mention friends with the flippancy likened to the online association of the virtual associate that so-called social media experts denounce as insular verbally awkward introverts who spend upwards to 85% (<–This number isn’t based on any quantifiable data. Just my fav number for the moment.) of their time fawning over their Photoshopped avatars and making monkey faces from the confines of a greasy computer screen.

Nope.

For the most part, the folks on FoodBuzz are real. They are passionate and honest about their love for food. Whereas music and love purport a universal connection among the world community, great food, the love of food, connects individuals, families, friends, societies, states and nations in the great united states of Foodbuzzinia.

Mmmm, I need some more chocolate.

Changes.

Aunts, uncle, cousins...

Hey, everyone. My apologies for the lack of written content these past few days. I’m in the process of changing careers, getting new glasses, having a more optimistic outlook on life, and working hard on pursuing better goals this year.

Food will always be high on my list of priorities because you all know this boy has got to eat. But most importantly, 2010 really revealed to me that the value of laughter and family, especially during these trying times, is critical in maintaining one’s sanity and composure. 😉

In a way, you could also say that cooking kind of saved me a little.

As this week draws to a close, I’m going to work on establishing another food blog that will embrace the love of cooking complete with interviews, video, and recipes, lol. Goodies from the Grenadines will return to its original purpose of focusing on Caribbean culture, cuisine, and hopefully the daily ongoings of the bakery that my hard-working cousin and her husband own and manage in Kingstown, SVG.

With that said, here’s to looking forward to the kind of change that gets us back on track to the road to success and happy stomachs.

This was yesterday’s breakfast. 🙂

Three recipes & Super Bowl recommendations from Epicurious.

It’s a major bummer that I’m unable to share pictures of my latest (and my mom’s) concoctions in the kitchen, those being a three-cheese lasagna, a splendid pot of pork sinigang, and beef, squash and zucchini stew.

However, if you click on the links above, you can read the recipes on those pages and follow the similar steps and ingredients that my mom and I did for providing each meal. Enjoy!

Chefs' Super Bowl Recipes by Epicurious writer Lauren Salkeld.

P.S. For this upcoming Super Bowl, I’ve found some awesome tips and recipes on Epicurious that you may find quite interesting and tantalizing towards your taste buds. You don’t have to be a crazed fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers or the Green Bay Packers to truly satisfy your hunger on Sunday, February 6th. So when the time comes and everybody’s watching that pigskin getting tossed around in Texas, eat up!
