The post with no name...

If you're a fan of Sergio Leone, then you are, undoubtedly, familiar with the Clint Eastwood spaghetti-westerns. I couldn't think of a suitable title for this post, so I'll just dive right in:

The good: My good friend, Allie, turned me on....to this website: Smitten Kitchen. For easy recipes and jaw-dropping closeups of food, you've gotta click. I can't wait for her to expand on her Asian offerings...

The bad AND the ugly: So, let me start by saying I really enjoy food. I have the highest respect for people who can constantly create new and wonderful deliciousness each and every day. I also recognize that the kitchen is not immune to being abused.

With that disclaimer out of the way, I now expose you to: This is why you're fat.

(pausing again for shock-and-horror to subside)
This site is the direct polar-opposite of SmitKit. TIWYF has about as much artisanship as flat Schlitz. Regardless, I found myself perusing through each page of the Frankensteined-dishes like I was taking in a macabre freakshow. So many questions I had: "do you have to EAT the dishes in order to qualify as a post", "must they put fried eggs on everything", "what wine goes with a porkgasm"...and on and on...

So, if you find yourself getting the munchies (listening to me prattle on about desserts or somesuch), just click on over to fat and your appetite will be destroyed in seconds.
