Ride these eggs Reverse Cowgirl style, YIPPY KI YI YAY!

Howdy, pardners!  You look hungry after wrestling all morning with them coyote uglies.  I reckon you could do with a little breakfast before you herd them little doggies into that there pen.  Pull yerself up round that campfire, eat my sexy version of cowboy eggs and I’ll tell some tall tales about them crazy cowgirls in Dodge City.  These girls will holler at the moon and love nothing more than to be ridden hard and put away wet.  I reckon y’all know what I mean so you best get on that Pony Express and get yerself a piece before Wild Bill and his men cock-block you.  This here recipe came about when I had my own cowgirl who wanted something quick before dragging me back up to the saloon bedroom for more of the same.  We done did hide out all morning, afternoon and night and that sheriff never got his mangy paws on me.  Thanks to her, I lived to tell this story and feed you my wake-me-up special.  Yee-haw!

Total time: approximately 4 minutes
Projected cost: $2

Step 2
Crack an egg into the center of each hole.  Sprinkle the desired amount of salt and pepper on each egg (approx 2 minutes).  Once the egg whites start to escape and harden from under the bread, flip them and cook the other side making sue the yolk is still soft in the middle (approx 1-2 minutes).  Serve it up on a plate with the side you cooked first up, its much prettier, and crown with avocado slices.  Serve with bacon or hot sauce if you like.

SLOPPY SECONDS JOE

March 2, 2016
There's no shame in going second so long as it's sloppy

There’s no shame in going second so long as it’s sloppy

No one likes to admit to having taken sloppy seconds, but we’ve all done it.  We all slip up and go there whether it’s hitting it after your best friend, sibling or in my case boss.  As long as you keep it under wraps and don’t allow this booty call to evolve into a five-year relationship then it’s no harm no foul.  Just move on knowing you got your forbidden rocks off and got away with it.  Well done, MacGuyver!  Now you just need to figure out an exit using only dental floss and a used condom.  Remember that your relationship with your homie is way more important than a piece of strange they already discarded anyway.  But sloppy isn’t always bad.  Sloppy can be damn good when stuffed into a bread roll and smothered with avocado.  So embrace the tangy terrific taste of a Sloppy Seconds Joe without shame or fear of retribution.

WHO DA MAC & CHEESE?

So Mac-a-licious, you'll lick the dishes

So Mac-a-licious, you'll lick the dishes

If you make this dish, then you da mack!  This dish takes the childhood classic and turns it on its head so it’s strutting its sexy stuff across your dinner table.  Be ready with a line about how you came up with this recipe remenisce about giving your playground sweetheart a wildflower (I don’t mind you claiming this recipe as your own as long as it gets you laid; if you fails then I will haunt your dreams).  Truth be told, I hated mac and cheese as a kid because the flavor and texture was bland as Kansas. Done right, mac and cheese will compliment any continental meal from fried chicken to pork chops and beyond.  The bountiful bevy of cheeses and the spicy jalapeño become a techno dance party in your mouth.  This boring classic has the much needed flare like that player at the bar getting girls attention with the pink feather boa, but not obnoxious.   Remember,  you make this side dish right and it will be by your side for many more mouth-water culinary conquests.

WAFFLE PARTY USA

February 25, 2015
This waffle party is like the firework grand finale in your mouth.

This waffle party is like the firework grand finale in your mouth.

Celebrate American Independence from those tax-collecting limeys.  Those redcoats just took and took and never bothered to give their colonists a reach around.  King George shouldn’t have been surprised when they stopped sucking him off with a smile.  Perhaps if the British were more inclined to reciprocate with the oral gratification Washington, Jefferson, Franklin, and the rest of their posse wouldn’t object to being colonial fluffers.  But alas, history unfolded and now the yanks are free from British money shots splattering their bespectacled, wig-wearing faces.  If not the taxes and tariffs, chances are the Yankees would have rebelled against the piss poor British cuisine.  So celebrate Independence Day with a distinctly American dessert.  Oh say can you see?

BBLT – BIG BEAUTIFUL LADY TAMER SINWICH

January 23, 2013
AKA Brie Bacon Lettuce Tomato Sandwich

AKA Brie Bacon Lettuce Tomato Sandwich

Don’t let the BBW reference scare you.  This sandwich is lean, mean and totally obscene.  Just the way you like it.  Here at CTB, we strive to make gourmet food accessible for the masses in DIY fashion.  But sometimes we do you one better, and I’m not just talking about when candles are lit after a bottle of wine.  Occasionally we take a simple classic dish and load it with sexy pretension.  Sure you could make a BLT – Boring Lame Tired sandwich.  But that will be as memorable as a premature ejaculator.  You need to treat a sandwich like you would a well-planned yet nonchalant seduction.  Bring on the Brie cheese!  Allow the delicate flavors of France to remake this American classic.  Now claim this sandwich to be your own design and accept the praise and sexual healing that will follow.

These shrimp are tres tres baba cool. No?

If this recipe title isn’t obvious enough, I was up in French Canada.  Just call me the ambassador of morally bankrupt American diplomacy.  In other words, I’m your typical ambassador. The fact I wasn’t given a motorcade and a villa with a masseuse and sushi chef is beyond me.  So I did what I always, make do in style. I befriended a pair of Salopes at an art gallery who invited me over for a barbecue the next day.  A bag of shrimp and I was in the door, rifling through their fridge to make something work.  The ingredients below are what they had, and thank god for that!  My new friends were impressed.  One insisted I stay with her for a few days. Canadian-American relations have never been better.
