Francisco’s Centro Vasco

Thursday, April 30, 2009

Francisco’s Centro Vasco Francisco’s Centro Vasco is a Lobster place and that is what you should eat there. You don’t need to do any picking other than the size of lobster you want to eat. They have sizes from 1 1/4 lb to about 9 lbs regularly. Bigger ones vary on availability but they sometimes […]

Chicken Caesar Salad

Thursday, April 30, 2009

I’ve always loved Caesar Salad but I haven’t ordered it in restaurants for years. Often, it ends up tasting like a heavy gloppy ranch or just creamy parmesan dressing. Caesar dressing should have anchovies in it yet often, it seems like it’s been left out.
The craving hit before lunch yesterday so I asked Lon to […]

This frozen yogurt fad has some confused, with the more recent ones tasting more tangy like yogurt, while old-school frozen yogurt tasted more like ice cream. Amongst friends the votes are divided as to which they prefer, so it seems like a good idea for Daydream Daydream to offer both, Original-Creamy and Original-Icy. Lon prefers […]

Greenbox Pizza

Wednesday, April 29, 2009

This is an incredibly well designed pizza box concept, that according to the video, is now patented.  Environmentally Conscious Organization, Inc. (ECO), right out of our hometown, NYC has created a normal-sized pizza box made out of 100% recycled materials.  But who cares about that… 🙂
Much cooler is the fact that the top of the […]

I had a really great time at Gottino Gottino Monday night, partly because my friend Bianca is great company, and partly because I think I was drunk. This rarely happens to me, but the waiter allowed me to taste 4 different white wines before I chose one, and then gave me a very generous glass. […]

Summer Croutons

Tuesday, April 28, 2009

Croutons are most commonly flavored with parmesan and oregano, but in this heat, I wanted something lighter. These are made with some citrus and fresh dill, resulting in a very distinctive crouton that really brightens an ordinary salad.

Beater Blade Plus

Tuesday, April 28, 2009

A few weeks back I came across a product review for Beater Blade Plus by New Metro Design, on some invention news website.  The idea seemed like one that I’ve had for a while — extend the blade attachment for the KitchenAid mixer to reach the bottom and walls of the bowl.  Pretty simple.
The review […]

Top Chef 6: Las Vegas!

Monday, April 27, 2009

The rumors have been confirmed by Kate Aurthur of the LA Times (via Yumsugar), that the next season will be shot in Las Vegas.  Filming begins next week.
In my mind, Vegas is a great place for the show, seeing as how it is THE Mecca of celebrity chefs looking to extend their culinary reach.  I’m […]

Last night, we were walking home when we saw Stogo Stogo. Lon and I walk into just about any new food place we see, so in we went to sample what they call Gourmet Organic Dairy-Free Ice Cream. I was hoping it would be good since Lon is lactose intolerant, but after we each tried […]
