Haute and Mighty

When people think of a chef, what comes to mind? Gordon Ramsay? Bobby Flay? Elzar? Many of the most well known chefs have been, or are, still on television. Being a chef does not mean getting a TV show, few do. Being a chef involves tedious prep work, training,  creativity, the ability to improvise, and dedication to working one’s way up the culinary ladder. Those TV chefs have clearly done that, but people still get the impression that all chefs are people with a cooking show who have big egos and do not work hard. I am here to dispel that perception.

Ask Gene Hackman

RYANgene

Burning issues, significant world events that affect us all, and what do people want to know? What irritates Gene Hackman. Maybe more people should just….you know….ask Gene what irritates him. I am sure he would be VERY forthright in his answers. FT :P

A Sandwich By Any Other Name

hoagie

This week I was feeling unproductive, so I decided to research the origin of the oversized sandwich. A sandwich is a sandwich is a sandwich, isn’t it? NO. It’s a hoagie, a grinder, a hero, a sub, a wedge, a blimpie, a spuckie, a zeppelin…. the list goes on. It’s more than just a sandwich. It’s a regional pride defines that sandwich. I believe Homer said it best when he said THIS about sandwiches. FT :-)

This Is Not Next Year

Fantasy

What is a crush? A crush is someone who you like. Someone who you don’t know a lot about, and who doesn’t know a lot about you. A crush is someone who may or may not like the same things as you. A crush is also someone who is just as confused about it as you are. FT :-P

Jenner’s Winning Hand

Jenner3

Part 3 of the Jenner series. Which is the third part of this series about Jenner. Who is the subject of this comic arc, this being the third part of the series about Jenner. Lesson learned: a pair of deuces beats nothing….except of course, an ace high. FT :-P

A Clothes Call

ClothesCall1952

This is what we call filler…..Another installment of 1952oon. This is based on a scene that I wrote which is included in the YA novel I am writing. Sometimes, when I picture the scene, the characters and their dialogue,  it pops into my head as a comic. I did not say that was necessarily a good thing. Hey, at least Giovanna likes them. FT :-)
