Don't have Vodka? Try this...

    I woke up this weekend and had this craving for a Bloody Mary, so I decided to satisfy it. I went to the fridge and found some Bloody Mary mix and then I opened up the liquor cabinet to find absolutely no vodka! Now, I’ve heard of people...

Food is a gamble, bet carefully in Restaurant Roulette

Deciding on a restaurant to eat can be difficult sometimes especially if two people are indecisive about what they are craving to eat. Spending time debating on whether to eat Thai or Italian just makes the two parties hungrier. Because I love...

Licking Cream and Peer Pressure

I’ve been thinking of cookies a lot lately, and believe it or not, that was not innuendo. It started when Ashley brought Girl Scouts cookies into the office. Girl Scouts are without a doubt the most aggressive of food merchants. In fact, next to car...

Food Porn

I knew it! You were hoping for some strategically placed meatballs, or perhaps a couple eggs over medium (think about it). You wanted to see some bananas doing weird things with tacos. But, not here; I’ve noticed recently that when I put a...

Easy Ingredient Substitutions

    Have you ever been baking in a snow storm, and then realized you do not have an ingredient your recipe calls for? There is absolutely no way you can venture out to Publix, Kroger, the Piggly Wiggly, or Giant? Or maybe you just plain do not want to...

The Ordinary

Life is short. Eat dessert first!

Normally you go out to dinner the hostess will seat you. Then waiter takes your drink order and tells you about the specials. You browse through the menu, look through the pictures, and select your order. A typical person usually orders an appetizer,...

Halloween Treat

I brought a plate of these to a Family-Friendly Halloween Party. Very easy and the kids loved them!!     Graham Cracker rectangles with a square of white frosting, topped with some red gel icing. I found this idea on Pintrest and had to...

Business Trip Breakfast

I just returned from a business trip. While away, I took a lot of pictures and although most didn't turn out so well, I did get a few snapshots of food.  So I thought I'd share them here on the foorfor.thoughts.com group.     First up is a...

Weight & Reality

The US has hit a disturbing milestone every state in the union & the District of Columbia as well are 20% obese. (That was the gist of the catch line on the news, the fact is Colorado is only 19.8% obese) More than 1 in 5 Americans is not just...

Sriracha Cookies!

This title may be frightening to some, but trust me, they're delicious! Now, for those of you who have no idea what I'm talking about when I say Sriracha, allow me to introduce you to quite possibly the best sauce in the world, in my opinion that...

Food for Thought: We're All Monsters

    "Most people are monsters; they don't want to admit it, but they are. We all learn to operate within a system of enormous hypocrisy." - T.Williams   I know this true of me, as I struggle for inner-balance. ...

Coco Nutty

So I was standing over my freezer & I noticed I might have a substance abuse issue. I have a weakness for Coconut, there's a coconut cake, coconut gelato & even coconut popsicles... I even have everything I need to make a...

Drag Queens and Bananas

I promise this is a post about food. I swear. And it may not be what you think it is. :wink: This is yet another local foodie post, but I'm hoping in opening the door to this type of restaurant that if there's one in your area, you'll give it a...

Hot and Smokey and oh So Good

Wow, what a weekend! So much food that my foodie brain is a tad overwhelmed. It all started Friday when the Thoughts staff went to lunch to celebrate the four year anniversary of this site. Lunch was on Ben, or the Bossman as Jeremy calls him, and the...

Barbecue that is literally good for the soul

On Friday, the Thoughts staff went out to lunch to celebrate the fourth anniversary of Thoughts.com. Bossman took us out to 4Rivers Smokehouse, which excited me because it’s my favorite restaurant. The restaurant has that distinction even though this...

Dig it! Recipe: Monkey Bread

I would like to take this moment to say, no, this recipe does not involve real monkeys. None. Supposedly the name comes from how this finished dessert (or breakfast food) looks kind of like a monkey puzzle tree. Or who humans resemble monkeys as they...

Food for me (2)

Now seriously guys - food for me has really become a bother: I've finally gotten through grocery shopping Even though I'd left the list I'd remembered the basic items So I'm sure you get my gist I walked those isles through and through...

I love rumcream and grapes

SO, I'm home alone another Friday night, (yeaaah,) and I'm wondering what to eat right. There's a music system set up down the block from my house (this is Jamaica, there's at least one sound out on the weekend), and it brings back sweet ,sweet...
