Fruit Obsession: Jackfruit

Growing up, I only tasted jackfruit in its canned form. However, as an adult I’ve been able to find it fresh and it is amazing. So addictive. I crave it everyday now, so when I stop by my Asian supermarket, I make sure to stock up on it. Some observations about jackfruit: -When it’s not ripe, […]

The V-Day Doughnut Chronicles

My husband is a very good gift giver. He listens to me and magically stores random things I mention into that mind of his. Then he’ll pull it out on a later date to use and surprise me. This Valentine’s Day, for my one of presents, he did something that I will never forget. This […]

Per Se

After eating lunch at Per Se, it’s definitely become one of my favorite restaurants. I would have to say that Joel Robuchon in Las Vegas and Per Se are now my top 2. Hopefully I’ll be back to enjoy their food again. And I have to say that the Perfect Manhattan that I had there […]

Chinese Grass Jelly

Ever see this canned black jelly, also known as grass jelly, in Asian supermarkets? It’s super good! My mother use to buy a bottled version of this for me to drink when we would go food shopping in Chinatown. It has a medicinal and herbal taste to it, but not one that turns me off. […]

Happy Valentine’s Day!

  I thought that these ripened, heart-shaped lemon plums made for the perfect picture for today. They started out as yellow, but have become a beautiful red in the process. Juicy and super sweet, I could eat a whole bowl of them. I enjoyed them so much that I found myself sucking on the pit […]

Brown Sugar Oatmeal Chocolate Chunk Cookies Recipe

After I saw all these damn cookies on my Facebook feed, I had to make some cookies. Super easy to make, I just threw a bunch of ingredients into my mixer, baked, and out came these delicious cookies. Also, they are brown sugar cookies because I ran out of granulated sugar. The edges have a […]

The BEST Lemon Sugar Cookies Recipe

I got the recipe for these cookies out of an issue of Taste of Home and just changed it slightly because I really enjoy the taste of lemons. The man that came up with the recipe is a genius. If I can find the magazine tear out of it, I will update it with his name. […]

Weight Maintenance After Training Plan

I was extremely worried that after I hit my weight goal and went off of meal and training plan that I would gain the weight back, however, the opposite has been true. Magically, somehow, even when incorporating an ice cream here and there or a meal out, it appears that my body is still keeping […]

Ben & Jerry’s Cake Batter Ice Cream

Yellow cake batter ice cream with chocolate frosting swirl. Love this one. Even if it didn’t have the chocolate frosting swirl I would eat it. I’m going to be keeping a running list of ice cream I have been eating lately since there are so many damn flavors to choose from. Check out the page […]

What It’s Like to Wait 3 Hours in 15 Degree Weather for a Dominique Ansel Cronut, by Patrick Schmitt

  So today I decided I would wait in line for a Cronut. I’m somewhat picky about pastry flavors and being that today was the last of the month, well last of the year in reality, Chocolate Raspberry seemed like a flavor worth waiting for. Joyce and I had discussed going to get a Cronut […]

Korean Tofu Stew Recipe

Some days and nights just call out for a bowl of spicy Korean tofu stew. It just hits so many flavor notes and the eating process of taking a spoon with some rice and then dipping it into the stew is very methodical and satisfying. I usually have ingredients laying around the house to put […]

The Salt Bagel. It’s a Magical Carb.

Growing up in the boroughs of New York, bagels have always been a staple in my diet. I’d eat them for breakfast, I’d eat them for lunch, I’d eat them for dinner. Nice, chewy and satisfying, you could give them a good schmear of anything you wanted, think cream cheese or butter, to whitefish salad […]
