Oskar's most recent food passion has been American BBQ, but he's also very drawn to & passionate about Italian food. As an observer of his cooking talents, I've noticed he's most interested in high-quality meats & the process of cooking them.
This time, he made a delicious, mostly Keto version of Chicken Parmigiana, & honestly, it tastes better than the real deal to me!
Oskar makes his own bread crumbs, breads the chicken himself, & uses this delicious Keto-friendly marinara called “Rao’s” — it’s the best.
I’ve asked myself so many times how someone could love food so much. I thought I loved food. Oskar loves to not only taste the delicious meals he makes; He loves the process.
I think there’s some kind of cheesy Conference talk analogy in there somewhere.
Wouldn’t it be cool to the love the process of life? I feel like so often we’re all trying to outrun life or our problems. It’s exhausting. With the amount of zest for life Oskar has flowing through his veins, I wish I could have just the amount in his pinky finger to make up for my lack.
The wind has been taken out of our sails in so many ways; not only because of 2020. It’s been this way for years.
It is extremely difficult maintaining the tenacity with equal parts humility it takes to be not only an entrepreneur, but literally selling ourselves, our music.
We’ve been stripped of any ounce of pride we ever had.
I think that’s why we do things like cook & create. We want to zone out for a few minutes. We want to get away from the world & our problems for just a moment. Cooking is therapeutic. Filming Oskar cook is therapeutic.
We get to feel that sense of accomplishment after the meal is done, the videos have been filmed & edited. We don’t get that much anymore.
We were talking just today about how we don’t even feel like musicians anymore, because we haven’t performed in almost a year. The world is closed for business & scared to make a move.
Personally, we’d rather live while here on this earth, not cower in fear. We want to live everyday like it’s our last, not wait for tomorrow.
Sure, we prepare & we’ve created a solid foundation with our business & our copyrights/trademarks that will last us decades to come. That doesn’t mean we don’t take chances, daily.
Instead of continuing to cope & hope that people receive us well, for who we are, we’re beginning to just be ourselves & care less about whether or not we’ll get “cancelled” or condemned for our beliefs.
It’s time for us to do more with our talents than just practice in our room & cook to get relief from daily life.
We’re planning a tour to The South & we’ll cook when we want to. Not because we’re sad, but because food is freaking delicious & we appreciate the little things we’ve learned to appreciate in life through this hardship.
We encourage you to do the same.
We've also been using Oskar’s mom, Carolyn Richardson’s invention: The JuggerKnot System to help us get to this mindset of taking control & being empowered.

We're Oskar & Julia Buie!
