Year of Firsts: Here it is

It’s hard to believe that this year is almost over. It feels like it just started. I feel like my New Year’s resolution has been so… shortlived? I’m not sure if that’s the word I’m looking for, but I do know that time flies way too fast. So here is what I’ve been up to lately

September 21st


I haven’t had Mentos in ages. Apparently, these Mentos are limited edition. I don’t think I’ve ever had candy with uplifting messages printed on them.



I really wanted to like these. They were hard and so so so dry. I could hardly finish the first bite I took. Oh well.



I love Butterfinger but this crispy wafer version can’t compare to the original.



This is the first time I’ve tried Ulker tea biscuits. I’ve tried their other products and have been satisfied but these were weak. The second I dipped it into the tea, it broke off. My tea ended up being more biscuit than tea.



This was the only soft and not stale bread the local supermarket was selling. I’m satisfied.



I tried to write a treatment. I’m still not too sure how I feel about the experience.



Tried a new recipe in the breadmaker. It was pretty doughy in the middle. Still tasty though.



I’ve heard good things about this butter. I actually liked it which says a lot because I’m not typically a butter fan.



Got an omelette at Wawa. I’m not sure what I was expecting. It tasted alright, but I’d hardly call it an omelette.



I actually wanted a smoothie but the sugar content was insane. So I got the drink with the least sugar. I love watermelon.

October 1st


I really tried to like this but I just can’t accept sweet coffee into my life. I’m all about the bitter.



Speaking of sweet drinks… This is the first time I’ve had commercially prepared tarmhindi and I swear it tastes just like my grandmother would make it. It took me back to my childhood.



I finally found something that keeps my glasses clean. Thank God.



I gave Mister Roger a chance in black and white. I’m all about that soothing programming.



No matter how you make them, ginger snaps are amazing.



I’ve never seen this bread sold in stores. It really does taste like the kind they give you in the restaurant. Yay!


Well, that’s that for now. Until next time…

Peace and Pistachios,



Year of Firsts: Bread!

Yesterday’s First was overwhelming. I had an appointment at Panera Bread and decided to show up a bit early and get an early dinner. I’ve frequented Panera from time to time, so I’m relatively familiar with the basics of their menu. I have taken advantage of the pick 2 deals, but I’ve never really gone for the soup options.

I don’t know why I’m not that into soup on a regular basis, I have to be in the mood for it. Yesterday was a slightly chilly day and I said, I would try their soups out.

I’ve never had a bread bowl before, I’ve seen them in their advertisements, but I’ve never actually seen anyone order a bread bowl. So I did just that. I ordered a tomato soup in a bread bowl.

IMG_2456.jpgNow I get that the place is called Panera Bread and they’re really proud of their bread, but was this much bread necessary?

I mean, I’m not complaining, but I got a bread bowl, the bread that they cut out to make the bread a bowl and a side of bread! That’s a lot of bread. I must admit, I enjoyed it.

Strange thing is, the side order of bread was tastier than the bread bowl itself. And may I mention that it is difficult to tear apart that bread bowl once the soup is all gone. I felt bad, I couldn’t throw out the bread bowl, I had to at least try to eat it, but I felt like I was wrestling with it just to get it down to size.

At one point, I noticed a woman across the room staring at me trying to tackle this bread bowl. It got messy, but it got done. As briefly mentioned before, the bread bowl tasted a little funny. It had an aftertaste that is difficult to pin down. But I guess that is expected when you want a piece of bread to be as sturdy as a bowl.

For a sweet contrast, I ordered a Green Passion smoothie. The description is as follows: Peach and mango purees and white grape and passionfruit juice concentrates blended with fresh spinach and ice.


It was delightful.

Until tomorrow…

Peace and Pistachios,

A Special Message For All Pizza Lovers Who Are Eager To Learn The Amazing Insider Secrets For Making A Variety Of
Exceptionally Tasting Pizza
At Home…

Date: Saturday, April 23, 2016

Dear Pizza Lover,

Have you ever wondered why most people struggle to make really delicious pizza? Why many simply give up on the idea of creating a great tasting pizza at home? If so, pay very close attention and read this page very carefully…

For me, this entire “pizza thing” started one cold January day in 2006. I picked up the telephone and called a few friends to invite them over for a highly anticipated football game. I also informed everyone of my intentions to serve a wide variety of “game food”… of course I suggested that they bring their own beverages… but I urged everyone to make a special effort to “drop by” for the game.

When asked about the “game menu”, I proudly announced that I would be baking a homemade pizza for the big event…

Stay with me here….

Looking back, I understand why I got the long “sighs” and unexpected “‘snickers” when I mentioned my plans to make a pizza on the telephone that day…

None the less…

A few days later… game day arrived and sure enough, during halftime, I proudly presented the homemade pizza that I had so proudly mentioned during my invite…

I was stunned!

“Surprisingly, my friends pointed at my pizza and laughed in my face…”

How embarrassing! How totally embarrassing! They commented on the shape, the texture of the crust… they even made jokes and compared it to their favorite pizza parlor pies. It really got bad after they “‘indulged” in the beverages I asked them to bring….

Man oh man….

Needless to say, after my friends departed, I was quite “bummed”. Feeling embarrassed and incredibly humiliated about the outcome of my “Big Game” pizza pies, I decided to get even. So I immediately went to work…

Month after month, day after day, morning, noon and night I began to study the art of creating great tasting pizza. I studied pizza dough, pizza crust, pizza sauce, cheeses… I even studied conventional home oven temperatures and the affect these ovens have on baking the perfect pizza pie (a big affect I might add). I conducted further study and discovered the best sauces and how to blend together the best toppings.

Soon, I started pulling together a blend of ingredients for various types of pizza pies, pizza sauces and pizza crusts that would satisfy the most “critical” of pizza lovers… I’m telling you, after being embarrassed once, I was determined NOT to be the brunt of jokes again…

I decided to leave no stone unturned as it relates to to creating a wide variety of “mouth watering pizza pies…

Let me ask you a simple question…

Are you tired of making pizza at home that gets responses like this… “it’s pretty good”, “not bad for homemade “, “it was O.K.”?

What if you could change those comments to “It’s was Awesome”…or… “It’s Was Incredible”, “Please make another one RIGHT NOW!

 Likewise, pizza lovers also remembered mediocre pies as well…

Now, a few years later… “the tides have turned“… my friends call me constantly. They all want
to know one thing and one thing only…

“When can we come over and sink our teeth into one of those Legendary Pizza Pies you like to make?

They call early in the morning, then call late at night, they called requesting “pizza favors”. They want to trade favors for pizza pies!

They even begin to call me “The HomePizzaChef“.

I’m Happy To Say, There’s Good News In All Of This…
