“I’m just gonna go to his house,” I told a few people when they asked where I’d be interviewing James Deen. I tried to seem as casual as possible. The responses ranged from people thinking I was walking into a rape-trap, to wrinkled noses, to one friend who was convinced we were going to hook up.
His assumption wasn’t unfounded. For months I’d been telling people I knew of James Deen, the young Jewish porn ingenue, from a Heeb Magazine article I’d read about him. This was a bold-faced lie. I knew of James Deen because I’ve watched his movies. In college, my friend Lee (the same one convinced James and I were going to bang) realized I liked nerdy Jews and directed me to James’s filmography. He definitely has his niche audience, uh, nailed.
Baked beans, y’all. No better side dish for summer! I always get compliments on this recipe when I bring it along to cookouts. Without further ado, here’s my fail proof recipe for beans:
16oz Original Beans + 1/4 cup BBQ sauce + a handful of brown sugar (give or take). Adjust accordingly for bigger batches of beans. I used to bake them in the oven, but I am honestly too lazy for that now and just warm ‘em on the stove.
And here’s the finished product. Add pork chops, fresh lemonade (with cherry vodka!) and you’ve got yourself a perfect southern summer dinner. Should have picked up some corn on the cob to complete the meal, but oh well.
Do you have a recipe for your limeade? I'm so on board with this. I wonder how the cherry flavour could be made stronger.. maybe pulverize them a little? - your new fan
Hey, thanks for asking!
I only let the cherries sit for about 2.5 days, so I think I’d be a little more patient next time to get the full flavor BUT I actually really liked the subtle juiciness of the infusion even after such a short time. Plus, the vodka mellowed out overall through the process, so it was dangerously straight-up sip-able at the end.
Now, limeade is easy as can be. Just juice a bunch of limes (I juiced 6 for my small batch), add sugar a bit at a time until you reach the sweetness level you like, and top off with water or seltzer. Fresh limeade is AMAZING and amazingly simple.
Kicking off her presidential campaign in Waterloo, Iowa, Michele Bachmann explained the geographic significance to Fox News: “Well what I want them to know is just like, John Wayne was from Waterloo, Iowa. That’s the kind of spirit that I have, too.”
This is problematic, the Washington Times explains, because “beloved movie star” John Wayne is not from Bachmann’s hometown of Waterloo. John Wayne Gacy, the “killer clown” who raped and murdered 33 teenage boys in the ’70s, is from Waterloo. Beloved movie star John Wayne is from Winterset, Iowa.
A couple months ago, a friend was raving about a cherry vodka limeade she had at a local restaurant. That sounded like a delish summer drink, and ever since then I was determined to infuse my own cherry vodka and re-create the drink at home.
Unfortunately, cherries weren’t exactly in season in March. So I was forced to wait.
Then, while picking up some things at the market yesterday, I noticed that cherries were back in the produce aisle. Yippee! Here is my attempt at infusing vodka with cherries:
Step one: Assemble your supplies I’m using Svedka because it’s what I’ve got on hand, and it’s basically the only vodka I’ll buy. As you can see, we’ve already dipped into some of the Svedka. But no worries; I only bought one package of cherries, so I won’t need to use the whole bottle of vodka anyway.
Step 2: Start pitting the cherries This is the messy part, and the part that takes the longest. I recommend watching some mindless TV or listening to music to make it a little more enjoyable. Here I am catching up on the latest season of RuPaul’s Drag Race. Work it girl!
Pitting a cherry isn’t easy, especially if you are trying to keep it whole and pretty. I, however, wasn’t going for aesthetically pleasing cherries, which is why they looked like this in the end:
And my hands and work station looked like a crime scene:
If you don’t like to get your hands dirty, I suggest never working with cherries.
Step 3: Drown your cherries in vodka Lastly, I added about half a bottle of my vodka to the bowl.
And now we wait. It’ll take at least 2-3 days, and perhaps as long as a week to get the level of infusion I am looking for. If you do this at home, make sure to keep the container closed tightly to keep air out and stir your cherries 3 times a day.
““this bitch went to Disney for her honeymoon (of course! I could write a whole fucking book on assholes who go to Disney for their honeymoon) and wore white mouse ears with a bridal veil and a rhinestone-encrusted “Bride” tank the WHOLE TIME.” Going to Disney for honeymoon when you have the opportunity or excuse to travel around the world is like wearing a rhinestone-encrusted tank that says “I’M UTTERLY INCURIOUS ABOUT THE WORLD AND POSSIBLY XENOPHOBIC””
