I’m back for another round of Missed Meals – a post where I highlight meals that missed being mentioned on the blog until now.
I have said in the past that dinner inspiration is not my strength, so most weeknight meals are rarely memorable. If a plate of food happens to look good, [...]
Our neighborhood has lot of restaurants. We’ve been to most of them, and we recently crossed two more off the list. I posted about Jimmy’s Bar and Oven which is right next door to the Chinese restaurant we went to over the weekend.
We recently made a trip to Super 88, the nearby Asian supermarket. It is a grocery destination for those seeking good prices and a wide variety of exotic ingredients.
I had a grocery list of about ten items for this haul, but the #1 item was Star Anise.

That was me on Sunday evening, and it took a solid 48 hours to fully recover. My appetite has resumed but my lust for cooking is shot. Dinners this week have suffered greatly.
Last night, Jelly was barely interested in our dinner plates. Probably [...]
Barbecues. Sunburns. Yay! I’m a summer-born gal, so this time of year makes my heart sing. I love watermelon, sunshine, potato salad, and burgers hot off the grill. Of course, I was delighted to eat my way through Justin’s family barbecue this weekend.
The grill master: J’s dad. He [...]
There is a first time for everything, even Vietnamese pho. I hadn’t tried it at a restaurant before, so Justin’s dad enthusiastically made it for us. He let me peer over his shoulder and photograph all the secrets. So, here I am to share them with you!
First things [...]
