Take Le Whif of this

I’ll admit it: I love candy.  I especially love candy from other countries or candy made with non-standard (in the US, anyway) ingredients.  While visiting my brother and sister this past weekend for her college graduation, Jess and I slipped away to the mall and checked out the candy store.  Among the many candies from around the world they had the most intriguing...

Queen Bee Cupcakes – Seaside
Queen Bee Cupcakes – Seaside

You ever have one of those days where nothing seems to be going right?  The day I discovered Queen Bee Cupcakes started off being one of those.  The first sign that I was in trouble came from the weather.  Since the farmer’s market is a good 45 minutes away I had to get up early and leave just after sunrise, yet when I was getting ready to go, it was still dark out. ...

Kitchen Witch’s Whoopie Pies
Kitchen Witch’s Whoopie Pies

Today is Food Geekery’s One Year Anniversary!  Yep, one year ago today this site came online (though it wasn’t completely live for a couple of months) and over 70 articles later we’re still going strong!  I really want to thank all my readers and twitter followers for being so great as I stumble around the world of food.  I still have absolutely no idea...

Jennifer James 101 – Albuquerque
Jennifer James 101 – Albuquerque

So my job sends me away to do site installations every so often and it takes me around the country to places I would have never stopped on my own… because vacations are expensive. While on these trips I am given a set amount of money to eat with… as long as these meals are “free” I make it a point to enjoy some really good local cuisine based on things I’ve heard...

Gravel Road – Seagrove Beach
Gravel Road – Seagrove Beach

Back in Omaha we had a favorite breakfast place… Bailey’s.  Even though I never officially reviewed them on this blog, they were awesome… in fact, the last day we were in Omaha we started off breakfast there, as we did at least a few times a month (I ended up taking photos for a review, so look to one in the future).  Ever since arriving in Florida, Jess...

Durian – Hail to the King, baby.
Durian – Hail to the King, baby.

When most people think of tropical fruit they think of bananas or mango or even guava… most don’t think of the durian.  To tell the truth, many people in this part of the world have never heard of this fruit, but once you see one, they’re pretty hard to forget. Seriously, check this beast out… it’s like a punk version of a coconut: Hail to the...

Vosges Bacon Caramel Toffee
Vosges Bacon Caramel Toffee

While doing my shopping for Thanksgiving at Whole Foods, this week, I didn’t actually think I’d find one of the best taste combinations I’d ever eaten.  As I walked past the big tower of chocolate my eyes instinctively locked in on a word that is, sadly, not often seen outside the meat dept: Bacon.  I almost dismissed it, assuming I had seen Mo’s Bacon...

Red Robin – Papillion
Red Robin – Papillion

This is a first for me on this site… a bad review.  Not just a bad review, but a horrible one… one that has me preparing to go back there and speak to their management. We’ll start at the beginning.  Jess and I had been out all day shopping and were craving a burger.  We happened to be in the vicinity of Red Robin and thought we’d finally give it...

Smashburger – Omaha
Smashburger – Omaha

A little over a month ago, Jess and I were driving over to Jason’s Deli to grab a quick bite to eat and we noticed a new restaurant opening almost next door.  It was called “Smashburger” and I had never heard of it.  Doing a bit of research led me to find out that it is both a relatively new (first store opened in Denver back in June 2007) and fast expanding: The...

Fruit Roll-Ups: Simply Fruit
Fruit Roll-Ups: Simply Fruit

Jessica is addicted to Gushers.  There, I said it.  Her horrible secret is out (sorry!).  Each week after I shop at the Farmer’s Market, with my car filled with fresh fruits and veggies, I drive over to the supermarket and sneak down that isle to satisfy her cravings.  This week was like every other, looking through all the brightly colored packaging for the one that...

SweeTango – Honeycrisp’s nightmare
SweeTango – Honeycrisp’s nightmare

Ah, Fall… apple season.  Once again our favorite apple, the Honeycrisp is in season for a limited time and we must rush to eat as many as we can.  The Honeycrisp is as good as an apple can get, isn’t it?  It’s sweet, crunchy, juicy, crisp… everything you want in an apple. Until now. A couple of weeks ago Jess sent me this article with a ton of excitement: Tim...

Absinthe Verte – St. George Spirits
Absinthe Verte – St. George Spirits

A couple of weeks ago I was visiting my local wine and spirits shop (Spirit World) and I got to talking about the different absinthe that they had for sale. The person I spoke with hadn’t tasted them, but told me that he heard that if I was going to try one, St. George should be that one.  I thought about it and decided to do some research. This is now the most impressive...

Joe Fizz – Carbonated Coffee?
Joe Fizz – Carbonated Coffee?

I usually like to start my mornings with a nice cup of tea (thanks to the Tea Smith, love that place), but this morning I decided to forgo my usual brew and sit down to a cup of coffee.  Well, not a normal cup of coffee, per se, I decided to give Joe Fizz a try.  I saw this stuff at the supermarket the other day and just couldn’t resist. What a happy looking guy! It's...

Shiner Smokehaus
Shiner Smokehaus

Happy Labor Day, my US friends (and happy Labour Day, to the Canadians)!  Today is usually celebrated with a nice hunk of meat grilled over some sort of fire, but unfortunately I don’t have a grill.  I know, that is a very sad fact and I am aware that I need to remedy it.  Luckily the good folks at Shiner have come to my rescue in the form of a beer.  Now, this isn’t...
