This episode covers the rest of Disney and the trip home from Florida, plus the first International Buffalo Wild Wings location, right here in Oshawa, Ontario!

At the beginning of May we went to Disney World in Orlando, FL.  This is part one of our adventures in the Magic Kingdom and Epcot!

The good news: Sheila is now working full time.  The bad news: We don't have as much time to go out for lunch anymore (since she's on midnights and is usually asleep while all the lunch specials winnow away).  But, we are going to make an effort to put the podcast out at least bi-weekly, and we recently took a trip to Toronto!

This week's episode is a day early for Halloween!  We discuss the delicious food at a reputedly haunted pub, Halloween's origins and different foods associated with it as well as other holidays that offer food to the dead.  More pictures to come!

    Ep 57 - Cereal

    20Sep10

    This week's episode covers a favourite of all school age people, whether you're going to kindergarden or college - CEREAL!  We discuss healthy vs. sugary cereal, The Road To Wellville and how cold cereals were invented and a certain cereal bar that seems like a hippy/beatnik place but has a very different agenda behind it.  Enjoy!

    We like to think of ourselves as being culinary adventurous, but travel costs a lot of money, so until we get a radio or TV show we have to make due with the magic of books to transport us to exotic edibles and forbidden foods.  Tom's book (believe us, Mr. Bowles, it's better we refer to you informally in the show so we'll stop butchering your last name) is just the ticket to reading about dishes that you could only imagine yourself eating (or not eating).

    Note the adorable bull terrier S+P Shakers.  This was an easy meal to make.  We cut up a chicken breast and rolled it in seasoned bread crumbs, then fried the pieces in olive oil until golden brown.  The chicken then goes on a cooling rack on a cookie sheet and into the oven for 30 minutes at 350F.  Voila!  A delicious meal to share, and an serious donation to Breast Cancer research instead of pocket change from a corporation just looking to cash in on slacktivism.

    This weeks episode is about an Oshawa fixture and a new food-centric manga that we found!

    Long overdue, here is part one of many episodes about cheese. We give a basic primer on tasting, pairing and varieties of cheese.  So, don't be shy, grab some cheese!

    These are but a few websites about cheese making:
