Veggie Grill

February 3, 2014 Kimchi: Thanks to the new Veggie Grill phone app, we scored some free food! I really enjoyed my All Hail Kale salad…the kale was such a vibrant and tasty green. It was full of flavor and lots of crunch. The Mexi mini wrap was OK. Its main taste is kind of like a bowl of […] {More...}

La Petite Sourie

January 20, 2014 Kimchi: I’ve gone once to La Petite Sourie for a mocha latte and macarons with a friend, and then bought the Frasier cake & macarons for Martini’s on his birthday. The workers here are all very knowledgeable about what’s on their menu and what pastries they offer. The entire place has a very homie and […] {More...}


October 12, 2013 Kimchi: Martini and I got a free, full sandwich deal for Capriotti’s from the Yelp Monster Mash that we went to. Redeeming our free sandwiches and buying a drink made for a super cheap dinner date, haha. We both got our own sandwiches and swapped half of it so we could try different sandwiches. We […] {More...}

Cooking: Red Velvet Cheesecake Brownies

Cooking, Dessert
September 11, 2013 I love brownies, I love red velvet, and I love cheesecake. So I was super excited to try out this recipe. In a way, I kind of wish the “brownie” part was a bit more moist, but I think it actually balances out the cheesecake part pretty well, so I’ll continue to use this recipe. […] {More...}

Cooking: Chorizo Burrito

September 9, 2013 I used this recipe to make chorizo breakfast burritos! I love chorizo – yumyum Mexican food. When I noticed they sell raw chorizo at the supermarket and how easy it was to get, I was so excited to make something with chorizo! Ingredients I used for 10 servings: 3 medium russet potatoes (I would use […] {More...}

Cooking: Italian Wonderpot Pasta

September 9, 2013 I used this recipe. I love creamy pasta and marinara pasta, but I didn’t feel like either and I wanted something that was kinda “light.” This pasta fits the bill! I made the mistake of using stewed tomatoes and adding in the original amount of herbs called for in the recipe together. The stewed tomatoes […] {More...}

Cooking: Salsa Chicken Enchiladas

August 23, 2013 I used this recipe. For those sensitive towards salty dishes, it might be pretty salty. Otherwise, I felt the saltiness made the dish taste less bland. Tastes good with a dollop of sour cream. 2 chicken breasts 1/4 cup salsa 1 tsp cumin 4 cloves garlic 1 tsp chili powder 4 oz can tomato sauce […] {More...}

Cooking: Chicken “Sushi” Rolls

August 17, 2013 I had leftover chicken from making onigiri, so I decided to make some chicken “sushi” rolls with regular jasmine rice. I used my bamboo mat to roll these up. Things I learned: differentiate between dull/shiny side of seaweed, wet/clean your knife in between cutting each roll. The next time I need a sushi fix, I’d […] {More...}

Cooking: Onigiri

Cooking, Japanese
August 17, 2013 I always wanted to make onigiri and decided to make them the day before a little roadtrip/museum day with my friend. It was harder than I thought to make…Putting in the filling and then shaping the rice ball into triangular shapes was a bit challenging (you can tell that some of the onigiri are cracked/filling […] {More...}

Cooking: Scotch Eggs

August 7, 2013 I looked over a couple of recipes for scotch eggs. Even baked rather than deep fried, these tasted really delicious, especially dipped in mustard sauce. They are extremely, extremely filling. The outer layer even stays a bit crispy after being baked. Ingredients: 6 eggs 1 lb pork sausage meat 2 tbsp parsley 1 beaten egg […] {More...}
