    ck to basicsā€¦

    I haven’t cooked properly in soooo long. I work with food so by the time I get home, I have no desire to cook. Add exhaustion from work and school to the mix, and I definitely have no intention of cooking when I get home. However, I was tired of eating Mr. Noodle every night and missed having a home cooked meal; so I decided it was time to step back into my kitchen. I was in the mood for something quick, easy and delicious. Easy as one, two, three šŸ™‚ I loving snacking on peppers, and I enjoy cooking with them even more! A little minced garlic and onion……

    Frushi

    Started my new job today and overheard my co-worker talk about the amazing Fruishi he had last weekend in Chicago.  I did some digging and found out Orange – The Contemporary Brunch Resto is responsible for such a medley and savory delight. Since I am in NY and the fruishi is in CHI… I am going to make my own! Now so can you… Frushi, or fruit sushi, is one of Orange’s most popular items and makes a beautiful and unusual breakfast addition. Serve it as a side to poached eggs and Canadian bacon or ham.

    HCB #51: put that carrot in my coconut…

    There are many great things that I learned during my time in chef school, and one of the many things that I learned and keep so close to my heart, is the art of making A DAMN GOOD SOUP. For some this doesn’t sound like anything special, but believe me when I tell you that there is an art to making a GOOD soup. I cooked the carrots in soy and coconut milk, along with some garlic, onion and other special ingredients, then brought them together… I used to HATE soup, and dreaded ANY and EVERY occasion that involved soup… until I went to chef school.  Anyway, this soup was…
