The Washington Post has a WonkBlog piece up about K cups and coffee pods killing Americans' love of coffee. From the post: Coffee pods, however, are incredibly efficient by comparison. People tend not to make more than they will actually drink—or, at least, first intended to drink. "People used to make a pot of coffee. Now [...]

#QuotableMondays: ‘We Have to Love Each Other’

In Episode 1 of my podcast, "The Pizza Dish," I speak to NYC-based software developer (and longtime pal) Rob O'Connor about a number of pizza-related topics, including: DNA on pizza crust implicates Daron Dylan Wint in D.C.'s "Mansion Murders"—what are the civil-liberty implications?

Oliver made the quip as an aside about a piece on Dr. Oz as a snake-oil salesman. Here's the quote, and then the clip: “Just because some bread, tomatoes, and cheese [...]

#QuotableMondays: Learn Your Craft ‘Until it Belongs to You’

Our Julia Child pizza, "Only Child," is one of my favorites of the bunch. The recipe offers a twist on an old favorite—chicken piccata—and can be put atop a pizza or served on it's own.
