I do love all things food – buying it, preparing it, cooking it, eating...
soup du jour
While listening to inspiring mariachi music, made fresh tortillas and slow cooked scrambled eggs for a lazy Saturday morning breakfast. Don’t think I could ever go back to store bought tortillas.
In retrospect, I’m a little disappointed in myself. Since 2009, I’ve only been able to knock off four restaurants in my bucket list – Grey’s Papaya, Jean Georges, Alinea, and TRU. Maybe I need to be more realistic. If that’s the case, I will have to fill in the blanks with more attainable choices. We’ll […]
2011 has definitely been a year of good eats for me. Hitting two restaurants from my bucket list, Alinea and Tru, were the highlights and the food did not disappoint.

Sometimes, my life surprises me. Take for instance, doughnuts. I am a baker’s daughter. I grew up surrounded by amazing, fresh baked goods and confections. My dad’s cookies are still in my dreams – butternut, peanut butter, oatmeal, but most of all he used to make kick-ass chocolate chip cookies. So good, in fact, when […]
