Squid Sundae

No, not the kind with whipped cream and a cherry on-top...

Sundae (soon-day) is a traditional Korean sausage. Usually a blood sausage, it can also be something stuffed in tubular form. Unlike many of the recipes I post, I know this one isn't for everyone. First off, not everyone likes squid and even I'll admit that this is a little more complicated that some people might want to attempt. That being said, if you have the time and the desire to try it out, I know you'll love it.

Scallop & Fava Bean Puree (Feature)

Sometimes the best ideas come to you at the oddest times. This past Valentine's day was a Tuesday; how incredibly annoying is that? Since I can eat so little anyways, going out seemed like a waste, so making something special at home was the way to go. I had no idea what I wanted to make, though. Randomly, while sending an email at 10:32am, it just came to me. I don't know why, but I thought scallops would be nice.

Coconut Curry Fish

Because I can only eat such small amounts of food, and said foods need to be protein rich, I really need to pick and choose what I want to eat. Since I get full just a few bites into any meal, making sure that those bites are exactly what I want is important. So today, when I was craving spice, I knew exactly what to make. Although I've been lucky to discover that I'm still okay with spice, my tolerance isn't nearly where it used to be... at least not yet. Cutting the heat with some coconut was a necessity - a delicious necessity at that.

My Deadly Sin

Wednesday, February 8, 2012 at 4:39 pm Duchess 19

I have a theory. It’s not ironclad nor is it 100% accurate, but in my experience, it holds true most of the time. The theory is this: everyone is a victim to at least one of the deadly sins. Since I’m not traditionally religious, I’m not taking the ramifications of the “sins” literally. In other words, I don’t think you’ll be punished in another realm for your vices, but you might suffer in the here and now.
