Cryin’ Collards

greens

When you think of collards what do you get? Some brownish green slop that, although delicious, has been cooked to death for hours, has lost all of its textural integrity and is, lets face it, pretty damn ugly.  This recipe is completely different. Because we’re going to remove the stems from the greens, we don’t …

Pistachio Pesto

Pistachio Pesto

Pesto is a sauce that really needs no introduction. By switching out the pine nuts for pistachios and adding a hint of lemon, we subtly alter the flavor profile making an all ready awesome sauce a little more complex. Musical Pairing: Black Breath – Heavy Breathing. I’m pairing these two together because both the pesto …

I have people over a lot, weather it be friends, my band or other bands, there’s plenty of times where I have to cook for a bunch of people. Being kinda broke, I’m always looking to do this on the cheap.  I use hummus a lot as a way to have something for people to …
