Little Saigon: Quan Hy

Sunday, September 6, 2009

I was in Los Angeles about 6 years ago on a short business trip. Time was tight and most of my meals were on the go, eating in transport. I do remember getting one good meal though, a lunch in Little Saigon. I don’t remember the name of the restaurant but I do remember that […]

Fresh Sriracha

Sunday, August 30, 2009

This Weekend Shout-out goes to Todd and Diane, of White on Rice Couple, for posting a recipe for sriracha style hot sauce! Make your own sriracha? Yea! As much as I try to make everything, it never even occurred to me to make sriracha. My handy squeeze bottle is always on the left fridge door, […]

Cold Brewed Iced Coffee

Saturday, August 22, 2009

It’s time for Weekend Shout-out and this week I have Amanda Mae at Mae Bird to thank for a wonderful Saturday morning. See, I’m a little addicted to Iced Coffee. If you watch my twitter, you’ll notice Iced Coffee just about every morning. In the summer, taking a stroll with my dog, Ice, and sipping […]

Magic Masala Chips with Quick Blender Raita

Saturday, August 15, 2009

Manasi, over at Kiss the Cook, wrote a post about Magic Masala potato chips, which are made by Lays but distributed in India. She just recently found it in NJ and then she sent me some. Is that the sweetest thing ever? Well, the least I could do is have her as this week’s Weekend […]

Peach and Cherry Galette

Sunday, August 2, 2009

Do you remember when Carla won all those Top Chef rounds with a simple galette? I thought that was a bit ridiculous considering how easy a galette is to make.

There is so much great fruit around now that I was thinking about making a Peach and Cherry Galette. The next day,  I saw the Peach […]

Honey Dew Apple Smash

Sunday, July 26, 2009

When I was neighbors with Carol Gelles, the award winning cookbook author, she gave me a juicer. She had several of them from all the testing she did for her book, 101 Ways to Juice It. Of course, I was also given a copy of her book, so I’ve decided to add cookbooks to Weekend […]

L’arte del Gelato

Sunday, July 19, 2009

We don’t think very highly of gelato in NY, after being spoiled by the great gelato in Europe. I don’t think I would have tried
L’arte del Gelato 75 Seventh Avenue, New York, NY 10014 if I hadn’t seen a positive review by Yvo, The Feisty Foodie, which makes her this week’s […]

Trofie alla Raspberry Vodka

Sunday, July 12, 2009

This Weekend Shout-out is to Gwendolyn at Patent and the Pantry for her post on Penne alla Vodka (and because I love her header photo.) You’d think, what an elementary sauce? But this one caught my eye because the vodka is not cooked in the sauce. No, you don’t just drink it while you cook. […]

Roasted Shrimp with Tomato Vinegar

Sunday, July 5, 2009

My mom gave me some beautiful shrimp and I went surfing for inspiration. Of all the stuff I saw on Tastespotting, Foodgawker, and Photograzing, I chose this one, which makes it this week’s Weekend Shout-out.  Hooray for Carolyn Jung at Food Gal for her wonderful post on roasting shrimp at high heat. This makes perfect […]

Curry Chickpea Fries

Sunday, June 28, 2009

This week’s Weekend Shout out is to Sara at Sara’s Kitchen. I’ve had her post on Chickpea Fries bookmarked since February (at least it’s from this year). The fancy name for these is Panisses, and I spotted a recipe on David Lebovtiz’s blog as well. Since I love fries, you can get me to try […]
