I love to wander the woods, especially those found up in the Pacific Northwest.

Time for some honest fortune cookies…
You can’t spell fungus without fun!
One of the highlights of my holiday season is the annual visit from my good friend Krampus. While you mortals are eagerly awaiting the big guy in his red suit, I prefer his much shaggier, much darker companion. We have spent many a long winter night munching on penta-graham cookies and sipping hot cinnamon andRead more
I decided to do a little holiday decorating this week…and since I spend so much time on the road running errands, thought the truck could use a little spiffing up. Of course, finding a wreath that fits my taste is a little tough. Most of the ones you can get these days are just so…festiveRead more

While it’s still taboo for you mere mortals to use actual skulls to make your desserts, even I’ll admit I prefer usingRead more
Hell can be lonely. Yes, even with all the torture and endless eons of mischief and bedevilment…which means to get away from it all, I like to pop up topside every once in a while and mingle with you mortals. Ahh, but times have changed since I first set hoof on terra firma and oneRead more
They say great minds think alike and in the case of Felix Galvan, author of the fantasy book The NecroNomNomNomicon: Cookbook of the Dead, that couldn’t be truer. Everybody knows about the Necronomicon, but it takes someone with a whole different level of madness to dive deep into the underbelly of Hell and pull forthRead more
It takes a very special person to look at my Death by Chocolate Cake and decide they want it for their birthday…it takes an even more amazing person to make that cake for the one they love. Chiletso Maggie Skeime is just that sort of amazing person! For her husband’s birthday she made him hisRead more
As a semi-informal ambassador to Hell I often find myself in the uncomfortable position of having to play host to large groups of guests. Rather than serve the usual chips and salsa you mortals seem to be so strangely obsessed with, I prefer serving my guests these savory and crispy deep fried bat wings. OnceRead more
I’ve never been one for nostalgia, but even I have to admit I miss the dark ages…and a big part of the fun of that time was the black plague. Nothing beat running around in long dark robes wearing plague masks chanting “bring out your dead!” Ahh…good times. Of course, modern medicine has madeRead more
I’m not sure how up you are on your Hellish Lore, but you may or may not know much about the current Imp problem we’re dealing with down below. Imps are nasty little flying things that love nothing more than to wreak havoc. Coupled with the fact that they breed like rabbits, love to burrowRead more
Today we’re going to make a pumpkin loaf that is dark as night on the outside but holds a sweet surprise in the middle…just like me.

Double double, boil and bubble…these cake pops are delicious and not much trouble… Okay, I’m definitely not a poet (I’m a demon, who needs rhymes in Hell?!) but who needs skills like that when you have cake pops like these? Not only are these super easy to make, but they’re delicious which means they’ll disappear…likeRead more
They say the devil is in the details and I admit, there are times when I really really enjoy making things far more complicated than they need to be (like taxes, and relationships and Ikea assembly instructions) but even I will admit there are times when simple is elegant — like this next recipe. MarrowRead more
Hell is hot. Damn hot. And after a long day of stomping around and raising general havoc, it’s nice to come home to a frosty cold bowl of sweet black sesame ice cream. This ice cream is a custard based ice cream, which means it’s thick, rich, soft, gooey, and with the addition of aRead more
We’re in the full swing of summer down here (yes, even Hell has seasons) and nothing says blistering hot days and long sticky nights quite like a cherry pie…and nothing says “gruesomely delicious” quite like slapping a human face on it. Of course, because there are laws against things like using real human faces, I’llRead more
This is an extra special recipe…specifically crafted for a small select group of readers who were more than a little disturbed by my earlier post, Roasted Heart of My Enemies.

As some of you may (or may not) know, I’m in the process of turning The Necro Nom-nom-nomicon into a cookbook and am actively looking for a publisher. That means building a proposal and sending it out to potential publishers and agents in the hopes that someone will pick it up. Unfortunately, not everything isRead more
Let’s talk about an offal subject…specifically hearts…and how to eat one. Ha ha! I can hear you squeamishly moaning all the way over here in disgust and fear. You mortals, with your strange idea of what’s edible and what’s — not. Remember the days of old when consuming the heart of your enemies wasn’t justRead more
Part of what makes my task of coming up with fun new and creepy treats is being able to draw inspiration from the world around me. I’m currently working on the Syfy show Z Nation and am lucky enough to get to be on set almost every day. Right now we are shooting in aRead more
You mere mortals are funny creatures, with your squeamish reactions to blood. Again, out of respect for you all, I’m offering up a substitution recipe for an otherwise incredibly popular underworld treat.

First off, I want to apologize for going dark these past few days. No, not dark as in my heart…that’s been that way for well over almost half a century (but shhhh…don’t tell.)
