I was so tired and groggy from the gym one night and when I was walking past the mailboxes to get to my apartment, I saw a beautiful glass bottle with a note on it. I wanted to keep walking, but curiosity got the best of me because it just looked so pretty, so I […]
Maybe you are that amazing of a cook? Maybe you just dream of stardom? Maybe you have nothing better to do on a Saturday? Well, here’s your opportunity to become a big star. And if you make it, remember where you read about the casting and make sure to invite me on your show when […]
It was pretty chilly this weekend while I was running errands, so I strayed a bit off my meal plan with a luscious hot chocolate from City Bakery. I got one with a fluffy, mouthwatering, big-ass marshmallow that they make in-house. The first few sips were a rich hot chocolate that were incredibly satisfying. […]
Of course you can use it to make pancakes. Krusteaz pancake mix is so freaking good. My husband read about how good the mix was and used it to make heart-shaped pancakes for me one year. I was shocked by how fluffy and tasty they were, especially since you only had to add water to […]
My girlfriend Maria brought me back some Italo gomitas from Ecuador and these chocolate covered gummies are crazy addicting. I love chocolate, I love gummy candies and I love pineapple. If you see these in the states, please send them my way as I have finished the ones in this box already. XOXO. – Joyce […]
My mouth is watering thinking about this delectable banana bread. It was chock full of butter, but quite frankly worth every bite. With a bunch of overripe bananas in my freezer, I received an email from TastingTable.com containing Dominique Ansel’s banana bread recipe and new that I had to try it. Not hard to make […]
If you eat Asian cuisines, you have most likely come across Nagaimo. Nagaimo is know as a yam, but reminds me more of a radish, such as daikon, because of it’s ultra light and crispy texture. It’s very sticky and snotty, similar to the insides of okra. If you eat omakase, you have most likely […]
According to my single friends and my eyes, dating nowadays seems to be extremely difficult. It was fun when I was single and dating, but now in the days of social media and apps like Tinder, whenever I turn around it looks as if tiny piglets are being eaten alive by multiple wolf packs (even […]
True story. That is all.
I do eat eggs once in a while when I’m at home, and for people who do eat eggs, I strongly, strongly advise you to purchase cage-free eggs, pasture-fed chicken eggs or eggs from humanely raised chickens. Even though you aren’t slaughtering an animal to eat eggs, it is important to keep in mind […]
Hmmm…so I think that when it comes to my blog, you’re going to have to imagine that you have the hands of a girl that has a height of 4’11” so that you can figure out what measurements I used. This cake was so good. Not overly sweet, but chocolate-ly and extremely moist. And I […]
Tango cookies are ridiculously good. Damn my girlfriend Maria for keeping us with a supply of them. Never had a Tango cookies before? Picture these flaky, crispy, thin cookies sandwiching sweet cream filling and then dipped in chocolate. Um, YUM! They are seriously addictive and if I don’t act fast, Patrick will have snacked on […]
I went to Las Vegas and bought a $60 burger. Yep, I’m talking about the Rossini at Hubert Keller’s Burger Bar. Was it worth $60? Nope. Patrick’s much cheaper burger definitely won in taste over mine. The Rossini burger is made with Wagyu beef from Australia, has foie gras and shaved truffles. Would I eat […]
I don’t know how it happened, but I am very grateful:). Chasing James Beard has made it onto a Top 100 Food Blog list. And considering there are a lot of food blogs out there, I am very excited. An infographic by the team at Rebateszone .
I feel like I have to explain myself when it comes to Dough Loco. Their doughnuts look so beautiful and inviting, and I’ve tried a bunch of their flavors (chocolate, raspberry Sriracha, cinnamon sugar, maple miso and pineapple brown butter), but I am just not major fan of them. I think that they make a […]
