Tikka Masala with a Side of Aqualung

If you are a fan of rock music and you hear the name Ian Anderson, there is an fairly decent chance your mental database registers that he is the virtuoso flautist and leader of the Grammy-winning progressive rock band Jethro Tull. There is also an excellent chance that you hold some sort of grudge against Anderson since he and his group inexplicably won said Grammy because the voters of the quasi-prestigious trophy mistook them as a metal act. However, I would venture a guess that you most… Continue

Drug of choice? Fat

Nothing quite satisfies your appetite like the taste of fat. I have to confess I love fat. My name is Louise and I am a fat-aholic. I can stand in the butter section of a gourmet food store salivating over all the choices. I'm the person who can't resist the crispy piece of fat on the edge of a steak, or the crunchy skin off a roasted chicken, and extra…
