Snappy Fridays – Special ‘Dough’-nut

Artisanal stuff is just great.  You take an everyday mundane thing like a doughnut, and make it fancy, like put bits of brownie on top of a chocolate glaze and finish it off with some pecans, and make it fresh through the day on site, and charge twice as much as Dunkin’ Donuts and it all amounts to Dough Doughnuts special. (daily, weekly, not really sure, I  don’t go there enough)

Yes! It’s as good as it looks

I do prefer Doughnut Plant as my go to sweet guilty pleasure, but this sure does take the icing? … Also? …

It’s no secret, I love food! Who doesn’t love food though? It sustains us, makes us happy, comforts us, but it can also be a hindrance if not taken in moderation (like with everything else, except maybe reading this blog, you can OD on this blog and it can, perhaps, make you a better person – maybe?) (more…)

Snappy Friday’s – Breakfast!

Happy Friday to all!!  I have to say it’s been a tough week as you may have noticed.  Myself and Alvin has been absent from our regularly scheduled posts.  We will resume usual non-sense next week.  For now enjoy this picture of a bacon and egg on a roll with hot sauce, my usual Friday breakfast.

You know you want one too!

Wild Ophelia 44% Cacao Beef Jerky Milk Chocolate Bar – Thoughts

I was doing some valentine’s day shopping at my local Wegman’s, and while at the candy aisle to pick up some Goetz Caramel Creme candy for my love, I happen to notice this little odd treat.  Beef Jerky Milk Chocolate Bar, the title states, from Wild Ophelia, and, I just had to have it.  Now, on my way home, I was imagining chunks of beef jerky in the bar itself, and getting that nice mix of sweet and salty, but I was going to be disappointed.  It was free and clear of jerky chunks, and I barely tasted the beef jerky itself.  It only had a hint of it in there, and maybe some bit and pieces of what might have been beef jerky.  It is however a nice piece of chocolate, and it’s made here in the US, using locally sourced products, and it’s organic.

If anything it’s a nice conversation piece when you have friend’s over, and it would sure be the topic of random conversation at random times.  I still much prefer Mo’s Bacon bar, but again, it hardly had chunks of bacon in it.  I think this bar, which cost around $5.xx is worth the shot.  Head on over to your local grocery shop and give it a whirl, and tell us what you think.

Here’s a quick video of me un-boxing it.

Pork, the other white meat.  It’s has to me at least a very transparent taste, and it absorbs flavour like no other.  This is pretty much über bacon, pork belly, so good, so tasty so deliciously bad for you.

This was one of our entrees this past thanksgiving, and it was oh-so-delicious.  Perfect compliment to the turkey.

Pork steam buns from Ippudo – NYC

In short, EPIC. I seriously do not have the expanded vocabulary to even come up with an adjective to describe on  how good this is. All i have to say is if you are ever in NYC, you must give it a go. Oh, and their Ramen’s are also EPIC.
