Dining out

Dining out! That has always been a thing for people. To be able to go somewhere the wife doesn’t have to do the cooking. Or the husband, depending on the household. It is supposed to be a treat, these days too many people see it as the only way to eat. I know people whose […]

Eating the World

Eating the World

Yet another part of having a great summer vacation with Geeky Kids. This edition: food and cooking. In order to carry this out, you will need a good market with international foods, or more than one. I just happen to have Jungle Jim’s on tap nearby, and it was a blast to take the Jr. […]

Eat This While You Read That: William Lehman

Today I’m doing something a little different for me. You see, I know William’s work best from the Otherwhere Gazette. I know he has a novel, Harvest of Evil, and it looks like a fun one. But I haven’t read it yet. I think I can risk recommending it, because the man writes non-fiction with […]

Eat This While You Read That: Stephen Simmons

(mirror-posted at CedarWrites today) As I am working my way through this blog series, I am tapping authors of all sorts for recipes and dishes. There will be traditionally published best-sellers, at least one who is better known for graphic art than prose, an editor, and independent authors. In some ways this was conceived as […]

Eat This While You Read That: Kate Paulk

If there’s one thing I am sure Kate Paulk is tired of hearing, it is: ‘When is the next con book coming out?’  So I won’t say it. I’ll just look hard in her direction and think it.  For this series where I recommend a book to read with a meal, I’ve had a lot […]

Eat This While you Read That: Mackey Chandler

I’ve had the pleasure over the last couple of years of reading Mac Chandler’s two series, and watching him grow by leaps and bounds as an author. While April, his debut novel, was a very strong story with a terrific female lead who… well, I suggest you read it. It was rough but has been […]

Eat This While You Read That: John Ringo

It’s difficult to pick out just one John Ringo book to recommend with this recipe. I’ve been reading his books for as long as I’ve been a Baen Barfly, and that’s coming up on fifteen years now. Given the nature of the dish itself, I have to say that reading the Kildar would be the […]

Eat This While you Read That: Mark Alger

Mark assures me that his lovely but lethal main character Dolly adores apricot danishes. I’m with Dolly on that one. I love a good danish. Not the kind you find wrapped in cello at the shops, and the ones at the chain donut stores aren’t much better. If you can find a real bakery, they […]

Eat This While You Read That: Tom Knighton

By sheer coincidence, this post is coming out just at Tom announces his newest release, Bad Moon on the Rise, his third tale of post-apocalyptic America. I haven’t read this one yet, too busy cooking, but I will soon! If you haven’t had the pleasure of Tom’s writing, I will assure you that unlike most […]

Eat This While you Read That: Tom Kratman

Today’s reading and recipe come from Tom Kratman, best known for his military science fiction and alternative history books. I’ve been reading Kratman since his first book and his skills have grown exponentially since that endeavour. When I asked him for a dish, he told me that the one he was giving to me is […]
