Puttanesca: Not Just a Dirty Word, Also a Dope Dinner

Polenta Puttanesca I’m not quite sure why, but to my ears Puttanesca sounds like a dirty word. Like something you’d call a stranger’s mother during a heated argument…You know what I’m saying?

Welcome to the Swamp

Today’s blog post is as quick to read as this smoothie is to make. I’m loving the third book right now. (This one.) So I decided to turn to page 137 and make the Whateverthefuck Fruit Smoothie, because today I felt like drinking my greens. I had some spinach that really needed using, which inspired this whole thing….

Goddamn Gorgeous Chocolate-Coconut Pie

This is the holy grail of all pies. It covers all the important food groups like Chocolate and Coconut. It’s sort of like Malibu rum with chocolate flavoured milk. Yum. Eat this shit in your sunny garden with your eyes closed, and pretend you’re on holiday somewhere, where the rum is flowing freely. You can even get the feeling of the…
