Eggs with Crushed Chips instead of Salt

egg

I’m keeping in line with new changes on the blog. Which is like HI-LOW frequency. One minute you might get full on “editorial” style bullshit photos and the next I’m posting things that took me no effort at all. Couldn’t give a damn, really. In 2014 you might have forgotten to bring salt to the […]

The kitchen comes with me, everywhere….

IMG_0697

It’s a really simple breakfast I crave at times. Fried egg with leftover chinese rice, regular HEINZ ketchup, and spicy sausages.. It’s just so delicious. I crave these spicy sausages (not exactly high quality artisanal blah blah blah) because I grew up as a young girl grilling these outside with my dad and it was […]

Gallery of doughnuts

DSC_6936

Don’t ask me why, but there’s this thing about me and doughnuts. I have a weird obsession with them. Not even eating them (the last doughnut I had was a while ago…)…I don’t care much for Doughnut Plant anymore, nor do I care about them in general. It’s just my focus on staying thin that […]

Banana Hot dog….

IMG_6751

I’m trying this tomorrow morning. Except I think I’d prefer to use a toasted brioche slice…Nonetheless I love this idea. Simple, quick, easy… I am 100% sure something strange is happening to my taste buds. I’m unable to eat any “flavorful” foods like my favorite fried sea urchins or any korean stews like fermented soy […]

Dispensable Glue Stick Butter

IMG_2404

This was from ages ago, I posted it directly for my followers on instagram incase they wanted any new butter presentation ideas. I post it here in case you don’t have instagram, you can try this idea out as a weekend project. Basically I took children’s glue sticks (non toxic) and refilled it with butter. […]

4 Ingredient Frittata via iPhone

IMG_1373

Lately I have been cooking breakfast at the office, since I am always in a rush to get to work I never have the chance to laze around in the kitchen. But there are limited utensils and ingredients, with a makeshift kitchen (a table with a cutting board, basically…oh and a microwave) I’ve resorted to […]

Waffle BLT

DSC_0915

It’s Friday, and I can’t make any crazy promises. That I won’t pick up some Moet tonight would be a lie. Or that I won’t start my morning off with a bang. And this morning I need this, a waffle sliced in half with bacon (almost burnt, crisp of course), lettuce, and sliced tomatoes. But […]

Monk’s Head Brunch

DSC_0415

Now if you are tired of that same French Toast thing on a Sunday morning, you can also try some freshly shaved Monk’s head on mini butter rolls. With some fresh fruit too of course…and some very spicy Grand Marnier soaked apricots…. The only hang up about this cheese is that you will need a […]

Perfect Egg

DSC_1954

Was previously on this mission to practice the perfect egg, and these tools above, they can be used several different ways. Overeasy, sunny side up, soft boiled, and poached. It does not really matter how you get to the final answer. Just that it comes out perfectly. Who said it’s the thought that counts? Execution […]

Texas Toast

DSC_8737

Simple texas toast breakfast by the computer while I start my morning. E-mail and my favorite blogs of course. Texas toast is one of my favorite things to pick up at the supermarket, it is very, what do you call it, ‘America’. And by the time I am done it will be hard to tell […]

4 American Classics, 1 machine

DSC_6642

So it’s pretty clear by now that I’ve made more than enough attempts at difficult recipes, things that aren’t exactly realistic for a person who has a serious job, or someone who has a family, kids to pick up from soccer practice, or for a typical twenty-thirty something that works 9-7 and then goes out […]

Early sunday morning

DSC_6244

Today I woke up at 2 am so I was able to do some shooting before starting the day, may visit a friend out of state or may go to the studio, depends on my mood. Also, had to burn some music for my car. Was really tired of listening to my iPhone, craving Harmon […]

French toast sticks, anyone?

DSC_5412

Priorities: Getting some restaurant brioche loaves from Balthazar, and then doing a minimal french toast setup with 2 dipping sauces, no maple syrup… If you’ve been around the block with brioche, you’ll know that Balthazar’s really the only one worth eating. Lost my gloves. Oh well. Dark chocolate… Prepare cream for both the chocolate and […]

Lox on bagels

DSC_5253

Priorities and rituals, not much in between going on in life. We’ve already discussed priorities, so now I’m taking the ritual chase. Sunday morning, lox on bagels, some friends and coffee. Gloves off. Need to write thank you note to Adele? Her jam made my sunday morning shoot very chill. Sambuca, anyone? Grinding some fresh […]

Egg in a hole

DSC_4962

Well good morning! I am a woman of my word, and I mentioned that I’d be doing some more breakfast posts like this, intimate setting. Made my way out of a whiskey haze at 5 am this morning but my priorities were crystal. Use up the rest of that truffle I bought, shoot, post, and […]

Breakfast with Luxirare

DSC_4685

One of my new years resolutions was to let you guys in on my life a little bit. I think one of the most intimate moments during the day is Breakfast, where you make the shift between dream state to reality. Mornings are always a struggle for me, I get up very early every day […]

Pancake Secrets

DSC_0893

For years I wondered what made restaurant pancakes taste so good. I’ve made them at home and they never looked like pancakes. The looked like FRIED cakes. Look at this picture here for an example. The restaurant pancakes were always slightly chewy, soft, airy, and the batter was never fried. In fact they had a […]

Scented Almond Milk

DSC_0560

One reader named Nikki had left a comment about almond milk, it’s something I like to drink now because it lacks that animal-scent you get with cow’s milk. I’ve never really been a fan of soy milk but almond milk is amazing. Anyway, in the comment she mentioned that it is so easy to make […]

Don’t toss it

DSC_0580

What do you do with an empty Diptyque candle jar…too nice to throw it out..right? Use a damp towel to line the roots, I would even cut darts into the towel so it doesn’t pleat too much. ..from Balthazer..look at those vanilla seeds.

Rose Granola

DSC_0681

Quick post here, this is part of a bigger post but I had to break it down because it’s too much. If you like rose scented things you will love this. I love rose flavored macarons, but it works beautifully with granola. Dip rose petals into the agave nectar. I use agave nectar because it […]
