“2000 and late blog culture for $600 Alex”

Hours before High Ball, we got the idea for a Jeopardy halloween costume. IT’S INTERACTIVE. We decided to make random friends in Columbus by creating a jeopardy game and inviting strangers to play. Within a few hours Ben had gray paint on his hair and Christina was sporting a giant jeopardy board game. We took it on High Street and it got rave reviews from partygoers  in costume , who particularly enjoyed the category “90s Pop Culture”.  One word: POGS.


Quote of the day: “Babe, I got soup on my glasses.”- Ben

We had a base recipe but tweaked it the no soup for you way. Cheesy. Creamy. Mhmm.


  • 1 Bag Frozen Broccoli Florets
  • 1 Onion Chopped
  • 1 Package of Pancetta
  • 2 cups Half and Half
  • 1 Stick of Butter
  • 4 cups Milk
  • Some Flour
  • CHEESE (lots of it) We grated 2 cups of extra sharp cheddar and also added 2 cups of packaged cheddar
  • Spices to taste (We threw in garlic powder, salt, pepper, and our own special addition, a dash of chili powder)

Step 1: Go a completely different direction and make a quick snack.

Step 2: Great, now that we are done with that, take a picture of all of your ingredients. (As seen above)

Step 3: Get all the crap ready to throw in a pot. This will require good music and conversation, because this is the most annoying/boring part of this recipe. Some things you need to do are: grate the cheese, cut the onion up (and practice your academy award speech), and thaw the broccoli.

Step 4: Get a pot and on medium heat, stir in 2 cups flour with 1 stick of butter. When mixed, add in milk, cream, and spices. Let those ingredients become friends, and when you feel like it, add the onion, pancetta, and broccoli.


Step 5: Add in grated cheese, stir until melted.

Step 6: Sit back and relax, because at this point your 4 year old cousin could take over. Let it simmer for about 40 minutes.

Step 7: Toast french bread slices for dipping, and serve up! Don’t forget the extra cheese on top!


This has been no soup for you, where we make soup, and you don’t get any. Unless you play along at home.

Hi friends. Ben and Christina here. Recently we developed a new tradition. Every Sunday we throw a bunch of ingredients into a pot and make soul-satisfying soup. There’s nothing better on a Sunday afternoon than the smell of ingredients becoming friends and melting together into one great creation. Since we aren’t necessarily the next Master Chef (Gordon Ramsey hasn’t gotten back to us yet), we use previous recipes,but always add our own special touch. Report back soon for our next yummy masterpiece.
