Balsamic Vinegar Reduction Sauce

In Sauces On February 9, 2011 6 Comments

(I don’t really like this picture, but I couldn’t make balsamic reduction look interesting)

I was first introduced to balsamic reduction from my friend Sandy, a chef / dietitian.  It actually was the same night I met Sandy.  My friend Amy invited Sandy over to my house for dinner to …

One of my team members, Sal, comes down to the office I work at about once a week.  When he comes we usually go out to lunch.  I used to ask where he wants to go, but now we just start walking because he always picks the same place.  According …

Cherry on Top: Valentine’s Day

In Cherry on top On February 4, 2011 4 Comments

Photo idea: Jackie Winslow in response to a desperate last minute tweet when I realized I didn’t have a picture for this post.

Warning, Valentine’s day isn’t that far away! Valentine’s day is about more than just asking your significant other out for a nice meal only to find out …

Eggplant Parm

In Vegetarian On January 31, 2011 2 Comments

This eggplant parm is a great dish for vegetarians but satisfying enough for meat eaters as well.  The best thing about it is that it’s hard to mess it up.  The measurements are anything but precise.  My measurements of the cheese are just estimates, put as much as a little …

What’s in your buggy?: Fennel

In What's in your buggy? On January 27, 2011 2 Comments


For those of you that aren’t familiar with the term “buggy” it’s synonymous with “shopping cart”, kinda like the age old “soda” vs “pop” debate.  My brother’s girlfriend, Laura, isn’t familiar with this term.  She thinks it is hilarious, and neighs like a horse every time my brother says the …

When a blog post gives you lemons….

In Drinks, Non-Alcoholic On January 26, 2011 0 Comments

I’m excellent at overestimating things.  How long it will take me to walk somewhere, how much things cost, how long it will take me to program something, and especially how much food to buy.  For yesterday’s blog post, I bought a few lemons to take my picture.  By a few …

Cherry on top: Lemon Wedges

In Cherry on top On January 25, 2011 0 Comments

In this cherry on top post, we’ll explore a nice way to present lemon wedges which led to me accidentally “proposing” to my friend Amy.

It was a nice Sunday afternoon in late fall. Perfect temperature outside. I called up my friend Amy and asked if she wanted to go …

Marinara Sauce

In Sauces On January 24, 2011 1 Comment

The hardest part about this marinara recipe was the fact that I can’t spell marinara. I think I’ve got that down now. Sure, they have a whole aisle dedicated the marinara sauces in the supermarket, but unlike those this one doesn’t taste like crap.

To be fair, there are a …
