what to do with stale bread and only one egg in the house? a rhetorical question, to be sure. egg, soymilk, allspice, and cinnamon. bread gets a good soaking, and a quick fry in the pan. topped with apricot preserves (though i usually prefer strawberry) and sour cream. divine. soundtrack: destiny’s child. you read that right.
poached salmon and heirlooms.
The heirloom grape and cherry tomatoes that my coworker gave me were too good to be true. I didn’t want to kill their flavor with anything over the top, so I poured a little olive oil and balsamic along with salt, pepper, and some chopped red onion. While that was marinating I poached a filet of salmon in champagne and lemon juice, broiled it and threw it all on a bed of spinach....

Last night I simmered the coconut milk and corn in a saucepan until the milk was mostly reduced and left in the fridge overnight.

Easy doesn’t mean nice and short doesn’t mean sweet. The story centers on Olivia, a woman returning to her mothers rural chateau in France after twelve years of no contact. She brings her two...
I am one of those lucky people who can eat anything for breakfast, and also eat it immediately upon waking. This morning I am having my leftover pho from yesterday, extra sriracha. Spicy foods get my adrenaline running overtime, a plus at 7:30am when I have lots to do. By the way, yesterday while I was waiting for my take-out, the cook was watching my soup boil and thoughtfully plucking on his...
