Spicy Recap and Revival

And we’re back! It’s been an odd and liminal year++ is all I will say, lest this this site of mine devolve into middle-school xanga territory. But, I’m back and have 70 odd post blips, new art projects, and random

Anachronistic Breakfast Cereal Nostalgia

I love Halloween. It’s an unholy confluence of basically everything I hold dear in life: food, ridiculousness, creativity, and monster cereal. Of course the night itself is magical, but the assured stockpile of sickly blue Boo Berry at my grocer is

The Realization of an American ‘Ethnic’ Food Section

Fellow PSFK contributor Simone Haruko Smith made an incredible find at an Alexanderplatz, Berlin grocery store: the USA section.  It includes, in true Yankee fashion, everything from Betty Crocker to cheese-whiz.  Although, in my opinion, the Germans left out (for
