Bilbao is home to some of the best food I have ever eaten in my life (I have yet to be disappointed here– something that I cannot apply to all the cities I’ve been to).  But sometimes I crave something a little more . . .  homey. So when my roommate, P, and I were […]

Since coming home, I’ve been trying to eat healthier.  Law school is not conducive to weight loss, and I’ve taken it upon myself to lose some law school flub in the next few weeks.  By eating several small meals a day and working out like a madwoman (I played tennis twice yesterday and ran/walked over […]

I’m actually not sure how I made this anymore. I know I had gone to eat Chinese (or some other Asian) food the night before, and thus had leftover fried rice in my fridge, waiting and beckoning to me. At the time I made this (August 24, 2008– yes, I’m THAT behind on my posts), […]

This is actually a Taiwanese (or generally Chinese?) dish called 番茄炒蛋, which is literally translated as tomato fried egg. It’s a dish that’s easy to make and highly satisfying, so I’ve put up the recipe again! Tomato Scrambled Eggs (番茄炒蛋): serves 1-2 Ingredients: two large eggs, beaten one medium tomato, de-seeded and diced salt pepper […]

(dedicated to my lil’ bro, Jon, and to “Miguel,” who requested the recipe to the “delicious” broccoli in a previous post) Growing up in my household, we at broccoli nearly every day. It was the same thing, day in and day out; my mother would brighten each dinner table with a large platter of dark […]
