Curry House

Japanese
November 30, 2014 Kimchi: I’ve grown accustomed to Mitsuwa’s katsu curry plates from Miyabi-Tei, which are under $8 dollars, and taste really fantastic. The first time I had Curry House was maybe 6 years ago, and I was not impressed. However, that was before I became a foodie, haha! This time when we went to Curry House, I […] {More...}

Veggie Grill

Vegetarian
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

Bakery/Cafe
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...}

Capriotti’s

Sandwich
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

Cooking
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

Cooking
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

Cooking
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

Cooking
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...}
