    Interesting. Some good content there but the thug gets boring pretty fast.

        Yeah, if not sooner. What a shame- it could be brilliant otherwise, maybe

          WAY too vegan for RuBo, methinks. ;)

              Not old leaf like Longbottom Leaf or Old Toby?

          I just 'discovered' TK yesterday, and found out that he is one of the finalists for 'Best New Blog' on Saveur.

          I actually like its 'gimmick', if you will. The blog's new, so I was able to scroll through it pretty quickly. I'm not sure there's enough meat on the bone for an entire cookbook, which apparently is coming out, but what was there i appreciated.

            Profanity is merely the crutch of the inarticulate m*therf*cker.
            Using those words gets really tiresome in a short time.

              In quality writing, properly placed expletives should expand meaning and be irreplaceable for tone. Most on T.K. are almost parenthetical or asides.

              Reading through, there are also noticeable voice shifts, as if regular recipes were merely salted with profanity, like a weak HS student throwing in semicolons in a desperate attempt to appear erudite.

                I think it's amusing, but yes it does get old. But, I sent it to my SO (who doesn't cook) and he thought it was the best thing ever, he even posted it to his Facebook wall, saying "finally, recipes I can understand". He kind of has a foul mouth most of the time (he refrains when my mom is around).

                    It certainly differentiates him from the rest. I think he does have staying power as his recipes do have substance.

                      My son saw this and wanted to make the cilantro pesto. It was very good.

                        That sounds mighty tasty.
