Mindblown: a blog about philosophy.

  • Baking beer bread.

    Within the last few weeks I’ve started cooking, or rather baking, quite a bit. My baking adventures started about two weeks ago when, following this recipe, I made a starter and subsequently baked my first sourdough loaf. I, unfortunately, did not have the forethought to write a blog post about my experiences, and going back […]

  • Red Smoke Barbecue: Detroit’s best barbecue.

    I was eating at Red Smoke the other day and realized I had never done a write up on the restaurant.

I was immediately struck by the building’s exterior, I loved the sleek white tile and wood finished cubby hole entrance. To enter the restaurant you have to make your way through a small entrance way with doors one […]

  • Plum market comes to downtown Detroit.

    The first thing to know is that the plum market located in the Ally center is not a full service location, rather it is what plum market is calling a condensed collection. Being a condensed location you will not find any fresh produce, however you will still find a sizeable assortment of prepackaged “healthy” snacks […]
