Blueberry Banana Smoothie

Wednesday, January 21, 2009

Lon’s a lactard (lactose intolerant) and he doesn’t love soy bean milk so we gave almond milk a try. It turned out to be quite good. In cereal, it’s similar to a lightly flavored skim milk, and even better, it’s healthier. We buy the Blue Diamond brand and it’s only 60 calories per serving (8 […]

Lazy Chicken Sausage Soup

Tuesday, January 20, 2009

Lon and I aren’t feeling that great today so we didn’t want to go buy groceries. We didn’t want to spend a lot of time cooking. So this is what we got, Lazy Chicken Sausage Soup. It’s made with all things we had and takes a max of 10 minutes to make, and tastes quite […]

Ramen Setagaya

Monday, January 19, 2009

A hot bowl of noodle soup is the winter cure, so it’s definitely time to test out the ramen places, as I said I would. So far, my search has been rather disappointing, with places like Ajisen Ramen, Menchanko-tei, and Men Kui Tei. The only place we actually like is Ippudo but the line is […]

Scallion Cream Cheese

Monday, January 19, 2009

Since we’ve been watching House lately, I was thinking about the phrase “delivery mechanism”. It is used in reference to methods used to deliver drugs into the needy recipient. Around these parts the drug is homemade lox, the needy recipients are our mouths, and the delivery mechanisms vary.

Blueberry Coffee Cake

Sunday, January 18, 2009

I love blueberries but they’re out of season. Luckily frozen blueberries are available year round. While I will still really miss popping fresh blueberries (one of my favorite snacks), I’ll have to settle for blueberries in baked goods for now. Oh, the suffering….hehe

Deli-Style Turkey Burgers

Sunday, January 18, 2009

There is a crappy little deli on 5th avenue near 23rd Street called Deli Marche, I used to eat there fairly regularly. One of my favorite sandwiches was the turkey burger. They’re low quality, but taste so good. Tonight, since we had some ground turkey meat around, I decided to try and […]

More Olive Oil from Greece

Saturday, January 17, 2009

You might remember that we brought back several bottles of olive oil from our honeymoon and we promised to report on each one.
Here’s the last one, Gaea Kalamata D.O.P. Olive Oil. It comes in a cool cylindrical tube that makes it easy to pack. Coincidentally, my mom brought us the same bottle of oil back […]

Pear Feta Orzo Salad

Friday, January 16, 2009

A little more than a week ago, I made a Roasted Garlic and Sun Dried Tomato Dressing, and I kind of got hooked on the flavor, craving it again. I wanted to show you just how versatile it is so I didn’t make the same salads. For the dinner with Sarah and Tim last night, […]

Broiled Salmon Skin & Dinner

Friday, January 16, 2009

We have been enjoying the sweet, salty goodness of the Homemade Lox all week. Last night, we had dinner with Sarah and Tim. While shaving off the last few pieces of pink goodness from one section of the lox, all that was left was the skin and a bit of meat around the […]

Chocolate Cappucino Cheesecake Squares

Thursday, January 15, 2009

I made the Chocolate Cappuccino Cheesecake Squares from Great Cookies by Carole Walter. I’m sorry I’ve been making stuff out of cookbooks lately (and can’t post those recipes) but this wasn’t the most fabulous recipes anyway (it was too much crust, not enough cheesecake). I really just want to show you the way I decorated […]
