Don’t mess with Vermont! Alise is on the warpath fighting injustice involving BACON and bigotry. Listen to the controversy and weigh in. Marcus tries to stay apolitical but Alise is taking bets that he can’t help himself.

#38 – Movies, Parenting, and Absolute

This show continues a conversation from episode 37 talking about movies which leads into parenting. What could possibly go wrong? We receive a great note from a new listener who we are totally ok with even though she is vegan. ;) Marcus and Alise keep it as real as it gets in this episode. Thanks for listening.

#37 – Love, Like, and Absolute

Marcus and Alise have another round debating love, like, and what it means to each other. This is the first part of a two part show. We hope you enjoy our look at what love means or doesn’t. The food we are enjoying and not. Updates on one of our favorite chef/friends, and Alise got into an accident. We start our conversation about things we are watching… but it ran into part 2 which will be out soon. Thanks for listening.

Hundred Foot Journey Marches Into Our Kitchen

Chettinad Pepper Chickenhi all!

This weekend we saw a great movie, Hundred Foot Journey with Helen Mirren. What a lovely film, food, love, France. *sigh* Marcus and I love Indian food. Marcus is especially fond of curry. I have been trying to impress him with curry recipes since we started dating. I am a bit embarrassed to say he turned up his nose to every one until last night.

Inspired by the movie and a bit loopy on muscle relaxants I set out to make this curry. I riffed a little on the recipe but it was a smashing success! Try the recipe AND go see the movie.

Love and lots of spice,
