While this would in fact work with real crab meat, this was made with imitation crab sticks - the same stuff they use in Japanese Restaurants. In fact, this was something I had from our local Japanese take-out place, and I thought, "well I can do that!"Read more →
I love brunch. Don't most people? This was actually what I made for Mother's Day...and sorry for the delay. I think the wonderful pictures and easy yummy recipes should make up for it though right?Read more →
Very Good Taste, a British blogger, created "The Omnivore's 100." It's a fun idea. One hundred items that VGT feels every Omnivore, worth their salt, should try once. I think it's a cool check list, but I also think since it's not all meats, poultry, or fish items, it should be re-named, but that's neither her nor there. Personally, I've had all but nine items on the list: Lobster Thermidor, horse, tasting menu at a three-Micheline-star restaurant, baijiu, roadkill, Louche absinthe, Fugu, Brunost, and whole insects - but I'll get to them (well, maybe all except roadkill?)Read more →
I was speaking to a foodie friend yesterday and somehow fish came up. The details aren't all that important, what is important, is last night's dinner. She told me about the incredibly simple way she makes fresh fish and all I could focus on for the rest of the day was going to Chinatown, getting a fresh fish, and cooking it ASAP! There's nothing radical about the recipe or cooking method, it's a very classic Chinese preparation, but that doesn't make it any less delicious.Read more →
My husband turns thirty next week.
In the grand scheme of birthday's, its a biggie, a milestone. For some our age, turning thirty is a terrifying prospect. Its time to buckle down, become a homeowner, a parent, a useful member of society...I feel that pressure too, but somehow, it's not driving me nuts. My husband and I have talked about this quite a bit actually. Somehow, by having each other, thirty doesn't feel like some major event. Instead, it simply feels like another year together - another birthday we get to share.
