Breakfast Egg Rolls

I have a problem.  When I cook I like to make large portions with the idea of having them available for multiple days to cover additional meals.  My thought process is if I cook something really delicious, why not eat it for every meal for the next four days?  The thought sounds great at the…

Tomahawk Steaks and Sous Vide

Hello again.  It’s been a while, hasn’t it?  In case you don’t actually know me in person, I require steady employment to pay for all of the food I consume and the impulse cooking items I purchase.  That employment is management at a certain consumer electronics chain that happens to be very busy during the…

Duck Fat Chicken

The last time we talked about fat on here we went into a deep dive into butter. How it is made, why it’s different colors, which kind tastes the best and various other topics. I really liked that post because it was a ton of information about something you have probably never wondered about and…

Honduran Food at a Coney Island

One of the really (not) great things about living in Michigan is you are within walking distance of a Coney Island no matter where you are.  You could be miles away from any sign of civilization and you could probably still manage to find some place serving coney dogs and Greek Salads.  One of the…

An Apology to Guy Fieri

I have said a lot of terrible things about Guy Fieri over the years.  Several years ago on Epic Portions I researched his family history and wrote about his name change from “Ferry” to “Fieri”.  I mocked his terrible restaurants and wrote about how stupid of an idea it is to run a Mexican/Sushi fusion…

Stop Buying Terrible Pasta Sauce

When I was younger my Brother and I participated in every sport and activity you could think of.  The one that stuck for both of us was swimming, which led to grueling two a day practices during our teenage years.  Mother Moors used to have to come up with large enough meals to feed us…
