Spice Crafters: PRIMO-27 is Meat’s Salvation

Meat. I love meat and I doubt that will ever change. I salivate for beef and lamb, but especially beef. Eating beef is quite easy, simply maneuver your fork and knife so can you cut appropriate portions and later consumer it in moderation. Cooking beef is a different story.

Artscape 2012: Banana cars, Giant Robots and Mind-Boggling Art

This year’s Artscape ascertained what I hoped it would be this year. It was smart, funny and unique.  I brought my dear friend Sion along for the ride and she enjoyed the insect art, free coffee, and the Oscar Meyer Weiner mobile.

Dublin Roasters in Frederick Maryland: Heart and Soul in a Tiny Cup

Have you ever been to Starbucks? If you have, then you must have noticed the manufactured structure, pretentious smiles from barristas and the mediocre coffee then.

Seattle, Washington: Unleash your Inner Nerd

Seattle, Washington is known for their coffee, freshly caught salmon and for the space needle. If you are heavily into pop culture or watered down literature, it’s also the fictional home base for “50 Shades of Grey” and for some parts of the Twilight saga. To me, I call it nerd capital. Seattle, Washington is…
