A Spicy Project

Writing blog posts just about technical topics and speaking events is stressful, mainly because those topics tend to carry a lot of baggage. Because of this, It’s been a while since I’ve posted about the events I’ve been speaking at. The two mitigating factors are 1) I’ve stepped down my public events to 1 per month, which is typically the SQL Bootcamp I teach at GA, and 2) The other events are mostly private, and advertising them feels like wasted breath. I’ve decided I’ll start listing events on a separate part of this site for historical purposes, and if something really cool is coming up I’ll dedicate a post to it.

The main point of this post, as per the title, is to announce a new project I’ve been working on. Influenced by Mark Zuckerberg’s yearly projects, I’ve set a charter to begin something I’ve always talked about- a cooking blog. Seeing as how I’m not the most adept at regular communication via blog, I’ve landed on starting an Instagram account and going from there.

Introducing the newest, spiciest foodstagram account:

Damn, That’s Spicy!


Only two things work for a hangover, and one of them is this decadent pile of chicken and waffles. 🔥🔥🔥 The night before, he stumbled back. He knew tomorrow would be a hangover he couldn't hack. Two chicken breasts, he cut and marinated. A mixture of soy, sriracha and maple syrup was created. The next morning, into the kitchen he stumbled. "… hair of the dog …" he mumbled. With panko, the chicken bits were breaded, then into the oven they headed. For waffles, the bisquick he grabbed- a simpler approach could not be had. Honey, ginger and bourbon were blended in, as his head roared a terrible din. Just to make sure he stayed alive, he tossed onto the meal a handful of chives. For this tale, the moral is clear- chicken and waffles should always succeed a night of whiskey and beer. 🔥🔥🔥 #chickenandwaffles #chickenwaffles #hangoverfood #chefslife #foodgram #poetry #foodpoetry #eatthis #spicyaf #homechef #soulfood #koreancuisine #sriracha

I’ll be posting pictures of my cooking adventures and occasionally something I eat elsewhere. It’s the best way to relax after a long day of staring at a screen. Speaking of which, back to building curriculum on a Sunday!
