On Difficult to Eat Food

Monday, February 25, 2008

Jessica and I often talk about how some people seem to particularly enjoy eating hard-to-eat food while others strongly prefer easy-to-eat foods. Enjoyable, Randall Munroe, who writes one of my favorite webcomics, xkcd, published a graph on this very topic!
Make sure to check out the full comic on it’s page: http://www.xkcd.com/388/
This inspired me to […]

Rosemary Focaccia

Monday, February 25, 2008

My cousin Olivia brought us some fresh rosemary from Arizona so of course I had to experiment with a Rosemary Focaccia! Here’s the recipe:

Oscars Watching Food

Monday, February 25, 2008

I’m not a movie person so for me, Oscar’s watching is just another excuse to eat with friends. My friend Sheryl ordered some Whole Foods Catering and invited us over to enjoy her huge screen. I was actually a little surprised that the Roasted Butternut Squash with Dried Cranberries was unevenly cooked. Some pieces were […]

Still disgusting foods…

Sunday, February 24, 2008

For whatever reason, I decided to read through some old emails I had archived. One was from my sister from August 14, 1998, with the subject line “FW: Yum!” After re-reading it was clear that the foods listed are just as gross today as they were almost ten years ago. So, without […]

Waffles are Really an Excuse to Eat Dessert as a Meal

Sunday, February 24, 2008

We had Caroline and Eddie over yesterday to break in our new waffle maker, the Villa Ware 2010 Uno Pro Belgian Gravity Waffler. It heats up quickly and makes good waffles even if you don’t follow instructions, Lon! It’s also easy to clean, mostly because not much sticks too it. I did spray it with […]

The Trader Joe’s Chronicles

Sunday, February 24, 2008

On Friday night, my friend Angie brought tons of goodies from Trader Joe’s. The winner of the night was Double Rainbow Coffee Blast Ice Cream. She had eaten Double Rainbow ice cream in California before and was so excited to see it here. It was delicious. I really hope Trader Joe’s continues to carry their […]

Q&A on Rosemary

Saturday, February 23, 2008

Olivia asked:
“I brought back fresh rosemary from my uncle’s yard in Arizona. I will give you a bag of it. Can you suggest a recipe using rosemary?“
Rosemary is an earthy herb; it has a strong aroma that is reminiscent of the forest (think almost like pine). It can easily overwhelm other flavors, therefore, it […]

Teddy’s Bar & Grill

Saturday, February 23, 2008

Teddy’s Bar & Grill Teddy’s Bar & Grill looks more like a neighborhood bar but it seems like more people come to eat, at least during lunch time. Even in the crazy snow (yesterday), the place filled up for lunch. It’s a casual and comfortable place where they serve simple non-inventive American food. It seems […]

OK 218

Friday, February 22, 2008

My incredibly sweet friend Lily, picked up dinner for us from Chinatown last night. I was craving noodle soups as I often do all winter. She decided to try OK 218 OK 218 (another great Chinese restaurant name, wink), a place she had never been to, so she was concerned over the quality. I said, […]

Time Out Schools Rachel Ray

Thursday, February 21, 2008

Lon and I have made fun of Rachel Ray’s $40 a Day so many times. It’s a ridiculous show concept. Any one of my friends can eat for less than $40 a day in New York City. Lily and I were just talking about it today and she found that Time Out New York has […]
