Addicted To Hash (It’s Not What It Sounds Like!)

Hi. My name is Leah. And I’m addicted to hash. Nooooooo, not the kind you get in Amsterdam. The kind you eat. Wait, that came out wrong.

Now that is a zucchini. It’s massive, I know. You can make jokes about how it compares to the BF’s, um, arm, which is pretty much all I did when I pulled it from the garden. Typically I like to pluck the zucchini when they are small as I tend to think they taste better […]

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 […]
