Kiwano AKA Horned Melon
Horned melons are native to Africa and are currently also cultivated in parts of the US, South America, and Australia. So why have you probably not heard of it? Well, it's just not very popular, to be honest. This one was 2.99, which is a little bit pricey ...

Ugli Fruit
It's pronounced “ugly”. Yes, that
was intentional. Ugli fruit are Jamaican and are actually
trademarked. You should see these things when they're not ripe.
Blugh. They're this gross, uneven shade of green. They look like
something you'd find in a giant's h...

Pickled Pig's Feet
Remember those halcyon days of youth? Watching mother make pickled pig's feet for her next ladies luncheon? That anticipation you felt as she soaked them for 4 days prior to cooking? The wonderful scent of vinegar and pig's feet that overtook the entire hou...

Maison du Fou
This recipe was inspired by the constant misrepresentation,
denial, deluded bragging, and outright lying that people do online. In addition
to the concept of deception, this sandwich is based on two of the more famous

Finding Uses For Everyone's Least Favorite Candy, Round 3: Sweet Heart and Anchovies Pizza
Yeah, you heard me. Time to get back to making these things edible. Why anchovies? Because so many people don't like them, maybe they'll work well together, like those two weird kids at school that no one else liked. Also, the salty and sweet might contrast...

Scorpion Lollipop
For Christmas, Emi got me a scorpion lollipop.  Mixed messages there, but whatever. The "Bugs" label has been pathetically underused on this blog anyway. Best ingredients list ever by the way. I hope they didn't bullshit on the lollipop bit and expect the s...

Michelada (F'realz this time)
Ok, I said I'd try to make a proper michelada so here goes. There are a ton of recipes for it online and it seems like every single one is accompanied by some stupid argument about how authentic it is. "Don't use tabasco sauce, use cayenne and diced jalapen...

Michelada Mix
I need a little break from Sweet Hearts, as my mind shattered a bit when I managed to make them taste good. I kind of thought it wasn't going to happen. In the meantime, Emi brought me one of these the other day. A michelada is a beer that's been prepared w...
