    Alice In Chains Reuniting?

    Clicky I'm not sure how I feel about this! On one hand, I am thrilled that the remaining members still want to perform and keep the AIC flame alive. On the other hand, it would be like Nirvana reforming or Sublime reforming. It just won't be the same without the front man, the heart and soul...

    Best sandwich ever!

    My favourite sammich: Take a couple thick slices of sprouted whole grain bread, spread a thin coat of mayo on each.

    So what's your favourite thing to have for supper?

    RE: So what's your favour I've thought about making wine, but I live in an apartment and I was under the impression that you really need some room for tubs and storge space for the jugs. It's just not practical in our current living space. I'm not really much of a drinker anyway, although I do...

    What's your favourite comfort food?

    RE: What's your favourite Mashed potatoes, and that's it. No gravy, and no special recipe; a bit of garlic is nice sometimes, but I'm happy with just plain old mashed potatoes. :)

    I need a good Moose recipe

    Pemmican is very work intensive to prepare. First of all you need to smoke the meat until it's completely dry; then you put small strips into a canvas bag and use a mallet to crush it to a fine, dusty consistency. This takes hours of pounding to make even a small amount, but the stuff will keep...
