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 […]

Edible Christmas Tree

IMG_9996

My philosophy on Christmas and holiday festivities in general is that all the family and friend gathering stuff comes second to the bottom line: Eating. What can I say? I coast holiday events to see what kinds of delicious foods I’ll get to consume- hopefully for free. Shameful, but too true. But…there’s slight a problem […]

Scungilli Fra Diavolo

DSC_0891

My guess is that most of you have been to an italian restaurant before. And you may have seen a variety of Fra Diavolo dishes. Those ones with shrimp and mussels or what not with spicy tomato sauce. But in my book there is really only one Fra Diavolo worth eating, and that’s one with […]

Basta Pasta Restaurant Recommendation

IMG_3722

This past week I checked out this restaurant that my friend recommended. She knows I love pasta (black squid ink is one of my all time faves), but some time ago I made her some sea urchin pasta and she liked it, so she returned the favor by taking me to a restaurant that does […]

A little of both

DSC_0421

I always like a little variety, even with pasta. But in really small portions. Here are two kinds I like. I dunno, having two kinds makes you feel fuller at the end, even though you eat less of each. My mouth gets so bored.   Egg noodles, parmesan cheese, and white truffle oil. And the […]

Crispy Penne

DSC_0613

I love baked penne sometimes and the best part are those little crunchy edges. I boiled my penne until it was really soft and then I coated them in a little water and olive oil..Then I just baked them until they got very blistered and crispy on top. For flavorings, I used all the same […]

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 …

Make pizza without dough

DSC_0169

I don’t really know why I’m hogging all my fashion posts, just don’t feel like posting them right now. Last week I was running back and forth between my desk and my kitchen. I was debating whether or not to just call for pizza- ugh- pizza…again? I’d sit in front of my computer for 5 […]

Italian style brunch

DSC_0300

Bend it like beckham was on this morning…. Some fresh mozzarella on an english muffin with prosciutto, pesto, and arugula. Bake at 450 for 10-20 minutes. This was delicious, make sure to toast the muffin before baking it in the oven so that the pesto and cheese doesn’t make the bread soggy. Serve with freshly […]

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 …

Moules Pasta

NEW PICTURES 854

Mussels and Fettucini, instead of your usual fries. New Pasta Maker!! So what’s cool about this device is the name of it. Its called “La Chitarra” which in italian, means GUITAR, and if you look at the structure it does mimic the base structure of a guitar. Someone should really invent such …

Artisanal Pizza

1

I had this pizza at a restaurant once and it was definitely one of the most memorable, therefore I had to replicate the same pizza at home. The process of replicating pizza is quite easy, as the process of making the pizza reveals itself to you once you see the completed pie. I know there […]

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, …
