Strip House

Friday, December 21, 2007

Strip House has been on Lon’s wish list for a while. We heard about their Crisp Goose Fat Potatoes, prepared by poaching potatoes in goose fat, then baking with goose fat, and finished by deep frying in goose fat. That’s what we heard and we couldn’t find any documentation on it, so off we went […]

Maurizio Update

Friday, December 21, 2007

***CLOSED***
I’ve given Maurizio glowing reviews in the past, but I just went again recently and I was a bit disappointed. The food wasn’t bad but I just wasn’t as impressed this time. My entree of jumbo shrimp were regular sized shrimp. With only four pieces of shrimp, it looked more like an appetizer on […]

Improved Baked Tofu

Thursday, December 20, 2007

We had friends over for dinner tonight and since one of our guests was a vegetarian, I decided to try to improve on that tofu recipe I had been working on for Lon. With just a few changes to the preparation and baking temperature (marinade staying the same), Lon loved the texture. Our guests seem […]

Calling All Chefs

Wednesday, December 19, 2007

If you’ve been reading my blog, you know I’m a huge fan of allrecipes.com, this huge on-line database of recipes. It’s a great site where users rate the recipes so you know if a recipe works before you make it.
For the first time, I saw a page on the site where they highlight their most […]

Park Side Restaurant

Tuesday, December 18, 2007

My mom was so excited to take us to Park Side Restaurant Park Side Restaurant because her friend highly recommended it. My brother, Lon, and I all trekked from Manhattan to meet with my parents for this dinner, expecting it would be worth the travel. Well, it turned out to be a disappointment to all, […]

Korea Town Plaza

Monday, December 17, 2007

I went to Queens to do some food shopping, as I often do to avoid paying Manhattan prices. I frequent BJ’s and Costco type places, Hong Kong Supermarket, smaller produce shops across Flushing, and Korea Town Plaza. My mom and I had so many errands to run today that we decided to save some time […]

Chocolate Bar and Soba Nippon

Thursday, December 13, 2007

While shopping, Sara and I stopped in at The Chocolate Bar inside Henri Bendel’s The Chocolate Bar inside Henri Bendel’s. The liquid chocolate and coffee is good but it wasn’t the beverages that I will remember. It’s a nice place to take a break from shopping since they have great window seats (which was perfect […]

Confuzzled?

Thursday, December 13, 2007

Is it a cookie? Or, is it a candy? That’s part of the marketing of Confuzzled products. I tried some on display at Henri Bendel’s today and I did think it was yummy. So did Sara, who asked for another piece. The simple and clever combo of chocolate and saltine crackers is another fabulous example […]
