Every year when I go to Origins, I HAVE to go to Dirty Franks Hot Dog Palace. It’s a MUST visit restaurant if you like hot dogs. DELISH! My favorite dog there has creamy coleslaw and french fries on it…yes it SOUNDS weird, but it is SO GOOD. A lot of their hot dog concoctions sound weird, but they are OH SO GOOD. Another great thing about this place? It’s open until 2 a.m. So you can play games until nice and late, and then go eat tasty hot dogs! When I’m not at Origins the rest of
What is the most co-op food you can think of? (Well, I am sure there are a lot). For me, I thought about the story I was told when I was a kid called “Stone Soup.” It’s the story of hungry strangers who come to a village and convince all the people in the town to share a little bit of their food for a soup and then everyone in the town enjoys the soup together. So, it’s literally a co-op soup! So this is a recipe and isn’t exactly “stone soup,” because everyone you know isn’t bringing
While I would probably never eat this, it fits really well into the theme of this week’s episode. Maybe you’re totally into this!

So this episode was about “Games on the Go,” and Jared joked that I should just do Hot Pockets for the recipe. Of course he meant the crappy freezer Hot Pockets that you put in the microwave – you know the ones, they are never fully cooked in the center. Yeah THOSE. Yuck. But, I decided it was still a fun idea. You can make homemade pizza pockets with crescent rolls, and they’re pretty good. I don’t know how “on the go” they are, though you can put them in a container and warm them up for lunch
Space...the final frontier. Well, the episode this recipe was paired with was a space-themed episode - and while the closest any of us will get to space is playing a space-themed board game or sitting back and watching Star Trek on television - I thought we should do some variation of space food. I read about what foods astronauts eat in space and I learned some interesting things!
I think pot roast is tasty just about any time of the year. It's easy to make and all you need it a crock pot. Put everything in at the beginning of the day, let it cook nice and slow and then you've got an amazing meal at the end of the day to serve to your gaming friends when they all come over! Eat up while you decide what you're going to play, or take a break from playing games to have a nice dinner!
In the fall and winter, I absolutely love the butternut squash and autumn squash soup you can get at a various restaurants. My favorite is probably the autumn squash soup they have at Panera Bread, so I have scoured the internet for recipes that are copycats for those delicious restaurant squash soups.
Here in Southern Indiana, the first full week of October is Fall Festival - it's a street festival that is touted as the second largest street festival in the United States (second only to Mardi Gras). It has rides and like five blocks of food booths with about any kind of food you can possibly think of (and a lot of foods you probably never would have thought of).
It's fun to play games on your lunch hour isn't it? At lunch time, you want to play small games that play in 30 minutes or so and you want a food that you can make quickly and take with you...a nice "on the go" food, right? So, here's a tasty recipe for a Miso Soup you can make at home, but it's got some noodles and extra veggies added in to fill you up and keep you going for the second half of your work day! Enjoy!
Stir-Fry is always tasty, but this one comes with a bit of a fruity twist! When we got back from GenCon, we were excited to talk about all the games we saw and played. Of course we ate a lot of food there too...but we didn't make any of it. So, we picked a few recipes with a common theme - dragon fruit - because GenCon always uses images of a dragon. It's kind of their mascot.
