Movie Food

One time, I snuck a cheesesteak into a movie. The ushers didn't notice, but the couple next to me kept looking at me like I had 10 eyes. Either way, it was delicious!

Pizza in Easton, PA

The Colonial has amazing upside down pizza. If you travel onto the hill near Lafayette College there's campus pizza, Pizza D'Oro's and Morici's. All are great!

What was the first dish you called your own?

My signature, go to dish is left over pasta with butter, cheese and a sprinkle of Cayenne pepper. You've got to add a large tablespoon of butter to cold pasta. Top with a massive amount of Parmesan cheese then microwave for 1 minute. Then sprinkle with a little Cayenne. The cheese and butter melt together to make a perfectly simple pasta dish.

Is there a Cilantro gene?

@finsbigfan Thanks for the article. It explains a lot. Now I know that my dad didn't exaggerate on this story!

Can you share a easy and quick dinner recipe?

My go to is pesto pasta with chicken and vegetables.

Ingredients:
pasta
1 chicken breast
1 steam-in-bag of frozen mixed vegetables
1 jar pesto sauce
1 tablespoon olive oil
salt and pepper

Step 1: Boil 1 pot of water. Add pasta. Cook until al dente.
Step 2: Cut chicken breasts into bite sized pieces. Add olive oil to a saute pan on medium-heat. Add chicken and season with salt and pepper. Cook through.
Step 3: Steam frozen vegetables in the microwave.
Step 4: Drain pasta, add cooked chicken and vegetables. Stir in pesto sauce.

Super quick and tastes great

Food You Wouldn't Offer to Company

If 'company' happens to be a date, there's no way I'm serving garlic. That's only going to end badly for me in the end ...

Cheap Dinner Out in Williamsburg, VA

I'm in Williamsburg, va with my track team for a spring training trip. We want to go out to a nice-ish dinner one night. We're college students so $20 main course max, but we'd sill like it to be tasty. Anything Tavern/colonial style would be nice. Thanks!

Is there a Cilantro gene?

My dad, who is known to exaggerate, claims that there is a cilantro gene that makes some people love the flavor of cilantro and others find it disgusting. Does anyone know if there's truth behind this?
