If it's true "we are what we eat," what are you?

I'm a chocolate protein shake or a pb&j. 1 or 2 every day :)

Peanut Butter and Jelly: A Serious Eats Special Report

My favorite article so far!

Are most foodies fatties?

Learn how to get taste out of clean foods. It's easy to make a simple dish completely bad for you by adding vegetable oil or butter.

Possiblity of contamination of coumarin in cinnamon?

Please research this, for I use cinnamon every morning with my flax seed raw oatmeal and would love to know this answer.

I have this bottle of Thai Curry Sauce that I've been looking forward to opening, I might give this a try tonight with some chicken and veggies!

Olive Oil!

NYC: Uptown banh mi

Looks pretty tasty here. Not sure where to get one, considering I've never even seen this sandwich. Thanks!

Wine: A Look at Corks and Screw Caps

Couldn't tell you how many times I've had an old cork just crumble when pulling it out.

I'm all for twist off if it's on good wine. I even like the new rubber corks.

I made the Guinness cake!

Oh man, I've been talking about this since I saw the recipe! Glad to hear it came out great. I'm going to try it for 2 reasons. 1, I love Guinness. 2, I love chocolate.

BREAKING: Health Dept. Closes Di Fara Pizza

It takes a bit more than "little things" to get a restaurant closed for health code violation. From the many stories I've read about this place, I doubt I would ever take a trip to experience this so-called best pizza. Now that something like this has happened, I guarantee I won't go.

Dunkin Donuts...hehehe

Rachel Ray and fat? Get out!

Bagel Love

Sandro, the same person who orders a Diet Coke with their Super Value Meal at McDonald's.

Question of the Day: Got any good food jokes?

A ham and cheese sandwich walk into a bar, they sit down and order a couple shots. The bartender says, I'm sorry, but we do not serve food here.

hardy har har!

What can't you cook after, trying over and over again?

I can't make an egg white omelette to save my life. And I never cook the first pancake nearly as good as the second. I never have the patience to let the pan heat up enough.

What one food are you ashamed to admit you like?

Malenky, oh my god that's alot of sugar! lol!

When I was a kid, my mom would make us Macaroni Elbows and a ton of mutter melted with it. I haven't had that in a good 10 years. I think I was half retarded when I was a young child, cause I loved to eat butter. I can't imagine that now.

Ever over-indulge in a favorite food and now you can't eat it?

Never! I absolutely love sweets, but stay pretty strong on not eating them often.

I have, however, stopped eating certain foods because I learned how they were created or what the actual ingredients were.

I could make brownies, eat the bowl of mix, then eat the tray of brownies. Jesus, you've got me hungry for sugar now. Thanks!

You have two sweet potatoes. What do you make for dinner?

Brown Sugar and Apple Sauce. Dear lord....

Pizza Hack: Broil Your Pies

As far as pizza is concerned, I absolutely LOVE Domino's However, it's incredibly bad for you as well. So, I opt to make homemade pizza all the time. It's simple too! Just buy the dough at the grocery store, a can of crushed tomatoes, olive oil, mozzarella cheese, basil and voila, you've got pizza. Always tastes good too :)

Ok, I know it's been done before. But it's a fun question...

Ray Charles, Fidel Castro, Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Fish Tacos, Pacifico beer, Don Julio tequila and cigars.

When cooking for others, do you save the best for yourself?

In my house, I usually do the cooking for my family (mother and sister). I put work into my meals and truly appreciate real flavor from foods. My sister will cover her food in salt or ask to have her filet cooked well done. My mother would be happy eating a box of cookies if I let her. So, to answer the question, yes! I always save the best parts for myself.

Gas vs. Charcoal grilling?

Over the summer, I grill daily. While I agree that charcoal is the best, gas is much easier and quicker for those who enjoy using the grill to cook daily. So I use a gas grill. Plus, there's no mess of charcoal, which can be annoying.

I see who wears the pants in that relationship, lol.

Prevent Diabetes

By eating Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwiches! Definitely one of my favorite finds of the day!

I found this heavenly article here.

What did you have for lunch?

Anyone enjoy something delicious? Maybe just a vending machine lunch? Or possibly a diet related meal?

I enjoyed a pile of Turkey Breast on Whole Wheat topped with Spinach, Sliced Avocado and Mustard.

Deep Fried Oreos

Wondering how many of you were fortunate/unfortunate enough to try deep fried oreos. In Pt. Pleasant, NJ, there's a shop on the boardwalk that makes these. An order consists of 3, but you only need 1. They hit your stomach like a brick but taste pretty awesome. I've also been made aware that they have deep fried twinkies (if you can imagine such a thing). These are definitely a way to grow a pot belly fast. I'm a serious health nut, but they're something you definitely should try. I'm pretty sure they're only available in the summertime though.

Best sushi in Northern Jersey?

For those who live in the now cold Northern New Jersey area, what is your favorite sushi place to dine at?

I'm going to share my secret location because I enjoy this website so much. The restaurant is called Nori and it's located at 406 Bloomfield Ave,Caldwell, NJ 07006. If you search for it, don't be confused by some other alike names in close towns. Out of the many places to eat sushi in NJ, I've found this to be the best. It's very small, quiet and well lit, unlike large lounge type atomspheres. It's also a byob place.

PS - Don't be afriad to try the "caribbean roll," it's excellent.
