I spent my first evening in NYC on Curry Row.
I have never officially met Kenny Shopsin, but he has cooked me breakfast several times.
Have you had Korean food? If you haven’t, stop everything you are doing and go and get some!
In 2005, I lived by myself in a 2 bedroom apartment for about 6 months. At times it was lonely, so I watched a lot of expensive cable TV.
This was about the time I first watched the Food Network, and I became obsessed. “I could do that!”, I thought. “I could be a TV chef.”
So I rehearsed for my dream job every time I cooked a big meal. I attempted to seamlessly cook and banter about my process at the same time, and it was a disaster.
This is one of the first times I realized that I was a true terror in the kitchen. My food would turn out great, but the mess I left (see picture above from last week) and my wild process, could potentially give viewers massive anxiety.
So I quit rehearsing for my cooking show, stopped watching the Food Network, and started watching the entirety of Six Feet Under. It was the safest choice for everyone involved.
I love the Rafiqi’s food trucks. In fact I love most trucks that sell halal chicken over rice. The kind with iceberg lettuce and a slice of tomato. Slightly greasy and spicy, with a cooling white sauce.
I can’t eat dairy as it makes me physically ill. For years I would eat ice cream, and then would have an insatiable desire to throw up. I never really thought anything was wrong with that, until a doctor told me to stop eating dairy.
I talked about being gluten free and dairy free a few months ago, and as times goes on I keep finding the most amazing recipes online. Andy and I tried this recipe from My Healthy Happy Home a few days ago, and it was so good I had to share. It was sweet, savory, and hearty all at the same time. Andy said even though it had no crust, it was the best quiche he has ever had, and I have to agree.
