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 […]

Turning $2 into a $20 dessert

It’s amazing what kind of magic a $2 cake batter can do, if you know how to tweak it. This moist supreme batter by Pillsbury is the best I’ve tried for quick cakes, I think it’s the 1 cup of jello that’s included inside the batter. The only problem is that if you don’t do […]

Hurricane Comfort

I know not everyone who reads this blog lives on the east coast but I am having some major hurricane anxiety right now. Nobody else around me seems to care much! I’m staying in tonight but I just heard on the news someone is in Long Island trying to surf the waves. Had to pick […]

Popcorn Bar

DSC_0169

Here are the flavorings. You’ll need dry seasoning (powders and fine flakes) as well as infused oils. It’s nice to use flavored oils for the popcorn. Oil is required when you pop the corn so it’s the perfect way to infuse extra flavor. For my candied orange and poppyseed flavored popcorn, I use orange oil […]

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’ […]

Split Personality

DSC_0060

6 am decisions are always hard to make, especially when it comes to selecting a bagel flavor. Usually I can’t decide between ‘cinnamon raisin’ and ‘everything’, but today the battle was between an egg bagel and an everything bagel. So if I can’t decide I just have to do both, the same way I couldn’t […]

No Roll Sushi

DSC_0262

Is it possible to bastardize the art of sushi making and get away with it? Okay so this is like some kind of sushi lasagna- I don’t know what to call this..sushi cake..sushi napoleon..call it whatever you want! It’s all about stacking ingredients horizontally without rolling anything (something I don’t like to do-not so great […]

Breakfast

DSC_0248

I have this little thing I like to eat and I had to share because it’s too good not to.. Some cookies (soft) with two kinds of sorbet… But being specific is key. I have a specific batch of cookies I buy from the whole foods brand, and two specific sorbets. This won’t work with […]

Multigrain Croissant

DSC_0064

Really simple late breakfast here. I’ve been enjoying these multigrain croissants that I can only get at Costco, and when I first saw them I was surprised because I’ve never really seen a multigrain croissant before. They are so nutty, flaky, and there are lots of seeds inside that just make it delicious. Perfect …

After work pasta

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 …

Per Se, NYC

DSC_0315

The day before my meal here I was in hell. Two nights before around 2 am, I have this dream. I see myself above a couch, the whole scene is really strange and lynchian and I’m levitating off a couch like 1 ft horizontally with a fire that is literally burning a hole through my […]

The Dutch, NYC

Today, I wore a suede shirt from Barney’s private label, my purse, and trousers from Zara. (Outfit photos by Sindy Varela) Some grapefruit flavored cocktail called the dutch courage… my friend ordered this one. Complimentary loaf of cornbread, barely sweet flavored with jalapeno. Came piping hot with whipped butter. Fried oyster sliders, or this is […]

Last meal before I die

DSC_0055_2

Nothing I cook will ever taste as good as Popeye’s fried chicken. If  I was ever penalized with the death sentence this would definitely be my last meal. Champagne, fried chicken from Popeye’s, and Sir Kensington’s ketchup. What would be yours? I’m at whole foods at least 10 times a week. What about you? It’s […]

Bloodless Mary

DSC_0042

A modern twist on a classic cocktail, the bloody mary. You will have to start out by quartering a lot of tomatoes. First the tomatoes and flavors have to be boiled for about 30 minutes to an hour. This broth is flavored with fennel, onion, bay leaf, basil, salt and pepper. Not putting my hand […]

Lox on Crepes

DSC_0388

Just another simple brunch idea. Enjoy! Crepe mix + a little bit of grated nutmeg. Nutmeg grater available HERE. Use a savory batter for this. This presentation is good for sharing. Onions, capers, tomatoes, creme fraiche, and chives. I added wasabi flavored caviar to the mix as well. Wrap it like a taco and eat. […]
