"Dad let’s go to the park!!!" (pronounced with heavy NYC Queens accent….Paaaahhhk) so I’m like: "Word, but we have to learn about farm food first!" He was like: "Dad! These grapes are deliciouser than those in supermarket!" Oh and I ran into Lisa @lisacooksnyc too! Small world! #culinaryharassment #truecooks #unionsquare #foodmarket #freshfood #fatherandson #raisinglegends (at New York Fuckin’ City)
Idris wanted pancakes for breakfast. In my house you gotta make your own food if you want to change the menu. This deserves Vinnie Paz on soundtrack @boxcutterpazzy #culinaryharassment #truecooks #fatherandson #raisinglegends #jedimindtricks #jmt (at Culinary Harassment Kitchen)
Pulling the trigger. The Marine’s rifle is calm, really. When the weapon is set on burst it shoots three rounds at once when the trigger is pulled. I was taught that this is wast of ammo. This is where term “one shot, one kill” comes from. The trigger finger is resting parallel to the body of its weapon, right next to the trigger. The focus is in its sights. This is where your eye rests. Breathing slows down so that we can lock down on our target. Only than is when our trigger fingers curls back and hugs the harbinger of death. The breathing stops. Target is on lock and in between breaths we pull back gently as if we were twisting a lock of curls of our lovers silky, fragrant hair. Pop. Target is secured. I use similar approach in baking. Slow and steady. Focus and calm. I pay attention to my surrounding as well as my ingredients. My cook’s movements and organization, the noise of mixers and buzzing of ovens, all this plays a part of organizing my own plan of attack for a day. The moment I get caught daydreaming I fall short. If I wondered off with my thoughts while caressing my M16 I would miss my target and possibly “get got”. But the main point I am driving to right here is that we need to be focused on ourselves the most. Our body is stronger than our mind. Mind is weak and it whispers a lot of unnecessary bullshit. Be hard on yourself so that you can discipline yourself. Leaders are not born nor do they inherit their leadership traits. Those stripes you have to earn. You already know how strong you are. Capitalize on it and grow more. Saturday morning calls for Pumpkin Muffins. And than a trip to the Aquarium with my son. Peace and love to all my True Cooks for holding down the fort, your day off is around the corner. But for right now, put in that work that will make a name for yourself!

Ideal date for urban couple that grew up in 90’s. He grabs a 40 and Orange Juice and make Brass Monkey which is concealed in large traditional NYC coffee paper cup and brings along Habanero Brittle Chocolate. She brings Grapes and Cheese with fancy Crackers and Pistachios. The Autumn can begin it’s course now.
Fuck with me!
I will hold your hand and brand my initials inside if your palm so that every time you clench your fist it ignites the fire in your breath.
Fuck with me!
I will kiss you in public places passionately so that when every person who see us wrapped into one another walks by those spots again is reminded that love has no shame.
The last dollar to my name is equivalent to a million we could stack together. But the million we stack ain’t worth half of your smile. And half of your smile is strong enough to shift winds with one flap of Monarch’s butterfly wings creating a ripple on the surface of the ocean and giving birth to tidal waves who claimed ancient cities before our time. I would make you smile for free! Scar tissues like stretch marks mapping the terrain of your heart will never be smooth again. I will hike and climb those rocks of your rugged soul until I’ve reached the summit and build fire so I can send smoke signals like text messages. I will get lost in the tunnels painting frescos in your subways and etching heart shapes in the fiberglass seats while they’re still warm, so that any homeless person stretched across the crooked orange seats rests with a sense of hope!
Fuck with me!

This little fat guy here is Baked Chocolate Cacao Nib Merengue. It goes inside of the chocolate mousse cake. “Why? How does that make sense Omar? Seriously WTF?!” This is something that might be going through your head. And it should! Merengue inside of the mousse cake soaks up the moisture and dissolves incompletely adding peculiar texture and flavor. It’s obnoxious……I know…..you’re welcome!

KISS. Keep It Simple, Stupid. Acronym I have learned within first few days of my life in Marine Corps bootcamp. I had a combination lock on my footlocker which had to be locked at all times. But when we were given the order to open our footlockers and get some items out, it had to be done within seconds. Obviously I wasn’t fast enough and got my head ripped open with three Drill Instructors chewing my ears of so close to my face I could taste the breakfast off their breath as bits of their saliva landed on my skin here and there. From then on I would set up my combination lock with first two numbers ready so when we were given the order again all I needed to do was turn to last number in the combination and be the first back on the line. I took that action with me everywhere and within weeks I became a second squad leader. I still implement it in my life. I needed a dessert and had nothing ready that would set a new tone. So I took bananas, brushed their skin with lemon juice and baked them. Made Kahlúa Chocolate syrup and served it along with Hazelnuts and Peanut Butter Powder. About 20 minutes start to finish. Make this and you will win. Happy Sunday y’all!
