Sweet potato cones

DSC_0101

A more mobile take on a classic sweet potato & marshmallow topped casserole that is usually served during thanksgiving….I’m not a huge fan of marshmallows but I do like just a little bit for an added sweetness and I love the burnt top (reminds me of smores). I started off with a super thin (Watered [...]

Fried Flounder Sashimi

IMG_0970

One of my favorite dinners is a simple sashimi dish. I chose a live flounder. I highly suggest making sashimi from a fish that’s just been caught, the sooner you consume this fish since it’s death the better.¬† Last night I did a really simple version with flavors like lime, jalapeno, soy sauce, sesame oil…but [...]

One of my favorite dinners… I try to keep them carb-less…and the best thing for me is just a piece of fresh fish from the market, some salt, and a broiler.. Branzino is my favorite…

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 …

Kitsune Soba (Vegan)

DSC_0099

1 thing that kept on happening since I started this blog: requests for vegan recipes.. I knew this would be a challenge… a world without Toro, Mcdonald’s chicken nuggets, caviar..or dry aged sirloin (cooked medium rare) would be a very depressing one for me!

Late night eggs

DSC_0105

A while ago I devised a no carb snack for whenever I couldn’t sleep and wanted to munch on something simple. I just ended up using ingredients I randomly found in my fridge at the time (portabello mushroom, eggs, a small handful of cherry tomatoes and store bought pesto), but for this I wanted it [...]

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 …
