Chinese Cough Remedy

Wednesday, March 26, 2008

My sore throat is slowly turning into an itchy dry cough. As you can imagine, that’s pretty painful, with the sore throat still lingering. When I’m sick, I think of my mom and how she used to chase me with those horrid Chinese herbal remedies. But, whenever I had a cough, I was standing in […]

Cafe Society / CSNY

Wednesday, March 26, 2008

While walking my Jack Russell, I stumbled across a new place opening on 16th Street, where Steak Frites used to be. The glass doors read Cafe Society Cafe Society and CSNY. While the space has enough tables and seats for a full-fledged restaurant, the decor looks more like a modern bar/lounge. I didn’t see any […]

Wednesday, March 26, 2008

I’m still stuck at home, sick of all the soup places I’ve ordered from.

I still have this sore throat that will not go away so I was craving a hot spicy soup, hoping it would burn it out of my throat. For that, I look to Korean food. We ordered from Dosirak Dosirak and I chose the Yukgaejang, shredded flank steak, with scallions and clear noodles, in a […]

Carrot Cousins

Sunday, March 23, 2008

Happy Easter! In honor of bunnies, lets talk about carrots. We were watching Alton Brown the other night and he mentioned that carrots and cumin were cousins. Wow, never would’ve thought, but I looked it up, and apparently carrots are in the Umbelliferae family along with dill, caraway, parsnips, parsley, anise, and cumin. Parsnips do […]
