FIVE eco do's for Earth Day

Today is earth day. If you're in Vegas, check out what you can do to help each other out here and don't forget to take Earth Day's quiz

Also, I listed five things you might want to do in celebration of our planet.

1.) If you seem that you can't get off your office chair, then sit right there and contribute by switching your default search engine to Ecocho for the day - go on & they'll plant two trees for every 1000 searches made. Give to the needy with a single click over at The Hunger Site, The Animal Rescue Site and the Child Health Site. Swap and barter with your wardrobe over at What's Mine Is Yours. You'll earn loads of clothing karma points, and clear some cupboard space at the same time. Info from, here.

2.) Learn ways how you can save water. Turn off the faucet while brushing teeth, bring water with you instead of purchasing, buy recycled paper products, install a low-flow shower head, water your lawn with a hose and not sprinklers, & eat vegetarian at least once a week. Learn more, here.
3.) Volunteer to pick up trash, or go around your neighborhood and pick up trash. Don't be a litter bug, not cool.


4.) Study Bosch's "Garden of Earthly Delights". I had the chance to see this painting in person when I lived in Madrid at the Museo Del Prado and holy cow, is it intense. No other painting is like this one, he is the first to create such vivid imagery. You can stare at it for hours and not get bored. At least thats what I did.
5.) make your own coffee sleeve.

Have any other ideas? Leave a comment, below!

yes, kashmiriness


no, its not a remake of liar-liar....its still silly, but better.

(yes man)

jim carrey is funny.

i think i have a girl crush on zooey.



bourd-immern news.

I don't think a lot of you know with my obsession with Anthony Bourdain. But yes, its true. The man is brilliant! He travels all over the globe and has absolutely the best commentary.

But I gotta give props to Mr. Zimmern...

A food writer, dining critic, radio talk show host, TV personality, chef and teacher.

Andrew Zimmern.

Probably one of the most knowledgeable doods in the food world (well bourdain is there with him.).

in Tanzania.

The guy has been everywhere.

Zimmern started early...and I'm talkin early. Culinary school at 14yrs. old. Yepp.

He started apprenticing in the most prestigious restaurants, worked as a chef, and general manager. Anyway, you should really see his show if you haven't, Bizarre Foods on the travel channel. You can read Andrew's blog, here.

On Bizarre today, they showed him enjoying Kashmiri Food, very rich with flavor spices such as cinnamon, cardamom, cloves...and saffron...saffron Kashmiri is very expensive.

Kashmiri Chai
: This looks so yummy.

Kashmiri Mutton (kashmiri style lamb):
Prepared with ground ginger powder, chili powder, plain yogurt...kashmiri foods have a lot of yogurt in it, I find it real weird, but I guess that's a hint of why it gives that rich, creamy texture.

The Cooks Cottage is a great place to find great and all sorts of Indian recipes if you'd like to go check it.
