Picked up some food from a new Moroccan restaurant that just opened near me for lunch. My only problem so far is that it is so delicious I’m having trouble keeping myself from just cramming it all in my face at once.
Dear God, it’s blue velvet cake.
And here they are done, like 45 minutes later.
The pies are, in no specific order:
Southern Comfort Pecan Pie - A standard pecan pie, with Southern Comfort instead of Vanilla extract.
Chocolate Bourbon Walnut Pie - Black Walnuts, Nut pie custard with half a bag of melted chocolate chips blended in, and Jack Daniels whiskey in place of Vanilla.
Peach Carmel Cashew Pie - Lightly salted Cashews, the custard mixed with a small bag of Werther’s soft caramels I melted down, and a little Peach Vodka to flavor.
Four Nut Pie - I’m kind of proud of this one, because it started with NO PLAN. Basically, I had planned the first three pies but ended up with left over everything. So, this is Pecans, Black Walnuts, and Cashew pieces, then I put two big spoonfuls of peanut butter into the remaining custard mix, blended it in, and made this.
FYI, these were **delicious**
Marvel’s C.B. Cebulski on Comics & Ramen
C.B. Cebulski may be the luckiest nerd on the planet. A recruiter for Marvel Comics, the 41-year-old travels the world scouting his well-trained eye for new comic talent. As a veteran writer and editor, Cebulski seeks out style and storytelling ability; his recruits have been responsible for titles like Young Avengers, Runaways and Marvel Fairytales. But Cebulski isn’t just on the lookout for great comics when he travels—he’s also the author of the popular Eataku Tumblr (a play on “eat” and “otaku,” the Japanese word for “obsessed”), which documents his gastronomic journeys across the globe. We caught the gregarious Cebulski during a rare day off in New York.Do you see any connection between the food and comic worlds? They’re both creative, competitive industries, and they attract die-hard, opinionated fans. What else ties them together?
A lot of chefs are comic fans. I’ve talked to a few chefs about this, and the similarities are pretty remarkable: both chefs and comics are artistic types, maybe a bit of an outsider; they work in a very solitary job, very in your own head, and the creation aspect is the same. Whether they’re working with a pencil or a knife, the thought flows through their head and into their hands. Every chef can tell you a story about his or her food and sound just like an artist, only instead of X-Men, they’re talking about tamales.
Baby carrots have a misleading name.
They’re actually just adult carrots that have been cut down into smaller chunks so that they’re more manageable and easier to shove into your mouth for consumption.
If you were to stumble upon a human adult’s decapitated head while you were running in the park, like joggers often do in the opening scenes of “Law and Order,” you probably wouldn’t say, “Look at that baby human!”
But alas, eating full sized adult carrots can be difficult and is emotionally unsettling for certain people.
Thank you, baby carrots.
This is strangely depressing and incredibly disturbing.
