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 […]

Japanese Hot Pot

DSC_2765

One of the best times for me to shoot is over the weekend, sometimes I shoot during the week too but over the weekend either I prepare meals for my friends or my family and the food I get to shoot for this blog is just a reflection of these short lifestyle instances. I think […]

Vertical Pregame

final

Some fried foods and beer, and ..some friends. Pregaming. But lets take it vertical. Koreans are heavy drinkers, and they have these things called levels. 1st 2nd 3rd level. 1st could be dinner and drinks, and then 2nd can be going to a bar, and 3rd could be ending up back at someone’s house for […]

Crab Cakes

DSC_3905

A while ago I had a wonderful package of stone crab legs from Florida sent to me. There were two different sizes, a bunch of medium sized ones, and two huge claws, this was really the first time I saw a crab claw so huge. I didn’t know what I was going to do with […]

Warm Chicken Salad

DSC_0793

Many times when I shoot food for the blog, I go the extra mile (maybe even 10 more extra miles) to label, package, and present the food..sometimes the recipes are complicated and I have an image I want to produce so I go out of my way to get the exact image I want..BUT most […]

Winding Down

DSC_0016

Ah! My day was so stressful, really. There’s no energy to cook tonight… just gonna do some blog browsing and channel surfing with cheese, uncured salami, olives, and wine. I don’t even like red wine but I have to have some tonight. I need to pass out soon, so tired. (Kiki De Montparnasse ‘sleep’ ‘f*ck’ […]

After work pasta

DSC_0050

Almost everyone I know has their own slapdash little pasta dish, you know that dish where you kind of just add whatever you like. Some people like just butter, garlic and salt..while others like to add a long list of ingredients- tell me what is your combination maybe I will try it. I’ve worked …

Kitsune Soba (Vegan)

DSC_0099

1 thing that kept on happening since I started this blog: requests for vegan recipes.. I knew this would be a challenge… a world without Toro, Mcdonald’s chicken nuggets, caviar..or dry aged sirloin (cooked medium rare) would be a very depressing one for me! I had to look up “vegan” on wikipedia ┬ábecause I …

Late night eggs

DSC_0105

A while ago I devised a no carb snack for whenever I couldn’t sleep and wanted to munch on something simple. I just ended up using ingredients I randomly found in my fridge at the time (portabello mushroom, eggs, a small handful of cherry tomatoes and store bought pesto), but for this I wanted it […]

10 minute meal

Although I DO like to torture myself (figuring out complicated recipes or cooking something that has WAY too many steps) sometimes I find there is just NOT enough time in the day. It’ll be around 5-6 pm and I SUDDENLY realize I haven’t eaten anything except a piece of toast! Not cause I’m trying …

Black Gnocchi

DSC_0195

There is no difference between truffles, or heroin. Both provide immediate forms of pleasure without having any lasting financial, intellectual, or artistic value. The smell of a truffle is elusive, its that one second of “clicking” between your taste buds and nose that goes away after a 1-2 chews. Truffle season is almost over, …
