Baked Ricotta With Basil and Tomatoes

Posted on

A few days ago, I was enjoying a writing date with my friend L. She just launched Autobiography of a Failed Writer last month. (Don’t listen to her. She’s one of the best writers I know.) We eventually got peckish and decided that we should probably have something to eat to go with our wine. So we raided her fridge and came up with a bubbling ricotta solution.

Power of Ginger Root: Yummy Tummy Tea

Posted on

The power of ginger root is miraculous.

Lately, I’ve been having some issues with my stomach. I’ve had them all my life, but when I’m under stress, it gets worse. Which isn’t so bueno when you write a food blog. G, being the wonderful man that he is, took pity on me and created the perfect tummy soothing tea.

Chili Con Queso Inspired Sandwich

I’m on my way to Austin, TX for SxSW, preparing for the 2 showcases Bright Antenna Records is hosting on Friday. It’s going to be intense!

Before I left, to put myself in the mood for SxSW, I made an attempt at Tex Mex. Chili Con Queso, if you don’t know, means peppers with cheese in Spanish. The dish is a fantastic cheese-based dip and can range anywhere from Velveeta melted into salsa to a blend of cheeses melted with fresh roasted chilis.

In other words, melted cheese and chilis. My two favorite things. So I took a little creative license.

This might be the least healthy meal I have ever cooked.

Perfect Breakfast Sandwich

Perfect Breakfast Sandwich

The only time I eat breakfast is on the weekends. I know that’s bad. Breakfast is allegedly the most important meal of the day. However, until I’ve had a cup of tea, food isn’t something I can think about. Literally. Because I can’t think at all. The idea of breakfast doesn’t occur to me until I’m at work, and by then it’s halfway to lunch anyway, so I just wait it out.

But on the weekend, I am all over breakfast. Maybe because I can call it brunch? I’m not sure. All I know is that I have this awesome waffle maker that makes waffles in the shapes of circus characters. Amazing, right? I use it all the time. Plus, you only get maple syrup at breakfast/brunch.

No, maple syrup and clown waffles are not involved in this post. Next time.

This weekend, I made the perfect breakfast sandwich: a fried egg topped with sautéed shallots, garlic and orange sweet peppers and served with spinach and herbed goat cheese, all on a cracked whole wheat bun. Yuuuuuuuuuuuummy.
