I am a Texas Girl (yep, caps on both those). There are typical Southern/Texas things that I hate (sweet and iced tea – why would you do that to tea?!), things that I used to love but don’t eat anymore since I gave up meat (brisket, BBQ, fried chicken, etc.), things that I have learnedContinue reading “Cornbread!!!”
So that looks like a frittata, but it is not. I don’t have time for the oven in the morning. Also, lately the weather has been cooler, but the summer heat keeps the oven in the off and locked position. I needed a quick recipe for mornings that satisfied the following criteria (in the orderContinue reading “Egg Pancake”
No pictures for this food item because, frankly, it didn’t look that great. It tasted amazing though. Here’s the story: I had the basil from my CSA that had gone slightly off in the refrigerator. It wasn’t bad, but it didn’t look great and I didn’t have any recipe that I could use it inContinue reading “Basil Chips”

This summer I signed up for a CSA at Bluestockings (called Foodstockings!), but it doesn’t start until June (right when I’m in Guatemala). Since I had a couple of weeks to wait, I decided to try out Food Basis. A good friend of mine had told me about them a few times. The goal isContinue reading “A Short Food Basis Review”
Now, I should probably have looked up something about cooking fresh pasta. But who needs directions? Especially when you will eat anything (well, anything vegetarian). My meal was really good, but apparently you are still supposed to boil the pasta, even though it is fresh. I think my method is better, at least until IContinue reading “First Time with Fresh Pasta”
last night, after a day of not being in the sun (yay, documentary project), i arrive home incredibly hungry. i was able to get to the farmer’s market in union square (ramps are in, in case anyone wants to know). i bought white onions, garlic, oyster mushrooms, dinosaur kale, and halloumi!
