Slow-cooked Kalua Pig x Charmaine

Charmaine and I go back to the Music Room Junkie days of San Jose State.

She was the inspiration and her likeness was used for the character, Talim, in the video game Soul Calibur 2. She previously worked for the company of a certain ghost-eating yellow and round 8-bit legend, and currently works for a box-like Internet radio company.

Thanks so much Char!

Gambas al Ajillo (Shrimp in Garlic Sauce) via Joe

Joe's an all-around family man, an avid Oakland Athletics fan, and kick-ass home chef.

Here, he's provided us a recipe for Garlic Shrimp from the now-closed P&J's Oyster Bed in San Francisco. 

Even though it's a seafood recipe (of which I'm allergic to) I'm sure someone out there will give it a go. And here's to hoping he provides us with his recipe for homemade pastrami and bacon. :]

Thanks Joe!

Stella's Wheat-Free Banana Bread x Miri

This Wheat-Free Banana Bread comes to us via Miri. 

Miri is the only person I know personally that has actually sat onstage with and has been interviewed by Conan O'Brien. A fellow aficionado of the stand-up comedic arts, she is also a dancer, writer and Air Guitar champion.

Thanks Miri!
