Last of the Summer Soups

It has been a strange year so far. Work made me insane through the spring, then the BF and I took a trip to Japan to visit a childhood friend. As soon as we returned, my mother passed away. And since then, the summer has moved quickly and yet slowly. Now, the rains have come […]

Musician’s Meatless Mediterranean Meal

photo_14

Picture the scene: In a post-holiday food coma world, three guys descend on my house. All musicians, all recording songs in my living room. Yes, songs. A new Beck album of sorts, Song Reader, recently dropped in December 2012. The package features 20 songs — never before recorded or released — as sheet music only. My houseful […]

Cold Comfort Curry

025

Y’all probably know by now that I like curry. In fact, I often default to curry when I feel like I need to be warmed or comforted by my food. Not that I don’t always want my food to be warming or comforting, but ya know, sometimes you just need that little something extra! Wintertime=crazytime […]

Garlic N’ Greens Are Good Friends

067

Trying to eat a little better? Never quite sure how to add leafy greens into your diet? Hate that I keep asking you questions? Great! I’ll stop now… Greens are a staple in my house as you can open the fridge just about any time of year and find kale, chard, turnip greens, collards or […]

Attack Of The Alien Grapes (Run For Your Lives, It’s Pie!)

The gooseberry looks like an alien grape and tastes like a sour one. Not that I’m complaining or trash-talking it. Just sayin’, plus it’s fun to say alien grape. Say it three times fast: Alien grape, alien grape, alien grape. See? Fun! In my non-bacon life I have a job (like an adult!) and work […]

Texas Lasagna Isn’t Lasagna At All

I’ve discovered one of those culinary mysteries of the universe. The most common I think would be the seemingly age-old discussion of why hot dogs and hot dog buns do not come in the same sized packages. But this newest enigma might be part of the new corn conspiracies: Why can you buy flour tortillas […]

Toasty Buns=Tasty Brunch

Brioche is delicious, let’s start there. I have a hard time imagining anything made from eggs and butter wouldn’t be tasty, for obvious reasons. Some of the best French toasts I’ve ever had were made with brioche. But brioche is also hard to come by, unless you happen to live down the street from a […]

This Casserole Is All Growed Up, Just Like You

Broccoli cheese casserole is one of those truly brilliant comfort foods; mostly because its covered in cheese. I think for most of us it was a sneaky yet tasty way for our parents to try and get us to eat broccoli as kids. Unfortunately, most recipes for the dish aren’t very healthy. Think of this […]

Leah’s Kidnapping -or- A Southern Vegan Treat

Dear readers, it is my painful duty to inform you that the recent silence from your beloved Bad Habits is because our dear Leah has been kidnapped. It seems her fears of the Vegan Police weren’t just paranoia or a plea for attention. As I type, she is being forced to eat tempeh bacon while […]

Pâtisserie, Mais Oui!

I have told you previously about my love of pie crusts. It’s kind of like eating fried food–it’s always good, no matter what it is. Think about it. Fried pickles, yes. Fried oysters, yes. Fried chicken, hell yes. Now, try it with pie crust. Irish boxty, yum. Pie of pretty much any flavor under the […]
