1 mug Quiche Lorraine

This recipe is a refrigerator MAGNET! You can put a large array of different meats, cheeses, and vegetables. The cooking time for this recipe is for a 1000 watt microwave. On one microwave it takes me 1 minute 20 seconds to get it cooked, and 1 minute for my other.


Things have been a little hectic here as I am in the process of moving from Omaha back home to Colorado. Its been an emotional return. Here is a little drawing I did of Scott Kurtz's character skull during morning warm ups. He's such a fun happy character to draw! Enjoy everyone! !

Study shows elevated levels of arsenic in U.S. chicken meat The US doesn't have a ban on the use of arsenic based antibiotics for chickens. While it's good for keeping the chickens "healthy" and free of parasites, arsenic has been discovered in the meat of the chicken. Pfizer removed the drug used for chickens from US markets, but could decide to bring it back at any time... Our food is quickly becoming a danger to us. I remember a study a few years ago that discovered an average of 23 different pesticides present in soft skin fruits and vegetables that had been cleaned to higher than industry standards. It's almost to a point where the only way to know your food is safe to eat is to grow it and cook it yourself. Cayen

Tales from the Kitchen 1

Tales from the kitchen is a series of tales that I have seen or have heard about happening in the kitchen. All of these are true as near as I can tell. Though I might change the names of a few people. Sometimes they will have morals to them, some might be funny.

Jaime Oliver's food Revolution

So I finally caught the last episode to this series. It's been something that I've held in passing interest. Not because I didn't think the content was important, but because I hardly watch TV and I hate reality shows. However this is kind of an important show to watch. It's Basically Jaime VS a school district in West Virginia (Huntington?). He's trying to reform elementary school cafeterias to be more healthy for the kids going to school. He's trying to wage a one man war against processed foods in school lunches, shifting focus from convenience foods to conventional cooking.

The comical bit about this show is it treats junk brands like cuss words. While you can clearly make out what kinds of foods children are eating. Some of which I remember myself eating in school. I think one of the more shocking elements to the story was the fact that the school is running into a different crisis. The USDA is sending the schools he exact kinds of foods he's been trying to get rid of. The Problem is that processed foods are cheap, which is both unfortunate and a little backwards. The Fresh items should be cheaper then the processed stuff. While I don't believe that the USDA should be treated like the bad guys, I think it's just one small part of a bigger issue.

Here's Hoping Jaime's experiment is a huge success.
