2 mins 25 seconds

Perfect time for popping the popcorn even though they say 4 minutes.

Expect Scorching after the 2:25.

This is PERFECT!
But then you just eat two hands full and put the rest away cuz you can't eat a whole bag of popcorn no matter how good it smells.

When I am taking a trip I always like to meet up with anybody i know who may live at the final destination.
Next year when I go to Europe I wont know anybody anywhere...which is a good thing most times because fending for myself is the way i get to meet a lot of new people.
Food- wise though I would be wrong if I didn't even contact David Lebovitz in Paris for one of his tours.
I love his site I love his page I love his cooking.
I love how friendly he is in replying to comments
I love his books
If I plan it well, I will have a great time!
(even if I don't plan it'll still rock) :)

The Lux

Anything with pretty packaging gets me good.
With respect to food this is a good thing sometimes.
With respect to other things (not so much)
Lux food is a site I love to visit and look at the food.
Check it out :)

The most delicious

Ok so I have to admit this is the most delicious version of baked eggplant I ever made

One of the secrets to the flavor is black truffle oil and I am never going to go without this ingredient again in my kitchen EVER!

It is good with EVERYTHING...from salad to eggs to meats to all veges..its just good
Slice them up and ...

Slightly olive oil the baking pan and add parsley

Coat the eggplant slices and arrange like so

Add more seasonings to taste includng just a drizzle of Truffle oil on each.

Bake 350F for 45 mins.

Smells delicious at 30 mins
Browns at 45 mins
The taste is heavenly and the mouth-feel is wow (umami)!

Trying next

I have had it for a few months now

Gonna try it sometime maybe next week
Looks too yummy to ignore


Its spicy cool cucumber pineapple salad
Grate the cucumber like so

Squeeze all the liquid out and discard the liquid.

Add the seasonings to taste: red pepper, paprika, some salt

Add Pineapple and a table spoon of the juice

Add 1/4 tsp of Orange Habanero mash

Refrigerate for two hours
Serve cool



I am never organized enough to cook at other people's houses.
I never know where things are

At my place I know from memory what I have and what don't so I can just make something from scratch.

At friend's houses I have to plan.
I end up buying stuff they already have most of the time.

Luckily when its a movie night all we ever do is reheat the bread or pizza or whatever :)

Boiling hot

For extremely hot days


Reminds me

Produce reminds me of

Friendly people

Fresh Clothes

Sleeping in in the morning (Well laying in bed when you've woken up and you can't back to sleep)


I know- this post is lame.
But I wanted to put up my produce pics. I like them! they really do remind me of all those good things :)

Never sure

I think that I don't like Okra/Ochro.
I really don't but i always end up eating it when offered.

I shouln't eat it though..Its hairy and slimy all at the same time.
I can't get over it.
I don't even know how to cook it so that it would taste good.

The bakers

The guys who offered me samples of this were really nice.

I didn't want the samples.
It was just cheese cake , but the guy who was advertising reminded me of the guy from Degrassi: Next Generation (Drake) who is now a rapper :)

An Expo

At food expo's you sometimes see a lot of strange things

It's food so you they kinda want to draw you in like they do any consumer

So you will see a lot of bright colors

Packaging that is cute or trendy

Free samples of course

Of course :)

Things that seem to have no rhyme or reason

The Dry

The Wet

The cool

The funky

The yummy

I love food

Mainly I like to look at it though

I tried to eat some cookie cakey things last night and it made me ill :(

Trying to eat cake

Everybody knows I like cake, but for the past month I have been trying to eat it and its been a useless effort
I want it.
So I start chewing, but I don't feel like swallowing, so I end up spitting it out and throwing the uneaten slice away.
I mean It's been good in that I don't take in those calories
but what is the deal?
I think it's because I've been listening to a particular morning radio show. I used to listen all the time and laugh. But now it's gotten gross and mean. They do nasty things to food and make people eat it.
I hope I am not off cake for good.
that would blow :(

Ju Ju food

This is an ode to True Blood
One of my fav characters is Lafayette
During a wake he warns Tara (Another of my fav characters) not to eat the 'juju fod' that the townspeople made
She eats it and says it tastes good to her

Tara, Sookie, Lafayette

He says: Now see you gonna wish you never did that girl
And he kinda snaps his fingers. :)
I love True Blood.
(I wouldn't have eaten the food).

Party in mouth

My new favorite berry is Mulberry
I had it for the first time in Cali
Its like Magic!
Thanks to Erin :)

Starts with...

Melongene (eggplant), and

Sweet peppers
Cris and I got great deals at the Saturday market.
I couldn't believe it.

I can never get produce at the grocery store again.
Roast Roast Roast


Kam bought this for me at the Polish store. He suggested I try it apart from the other stuff we got the first time when we went to the store in Destin
It's the best ever because its not tart
It's sweet but not too sweet....
I eat it when I am starving and haven't cooked yet

By the time I am done eating though, I don't feel for anything else
This is so good
I like Polish food in general. It's not the most mouth watering but its yummily adequate.

A good day with food

I like to remember the food I had on good and great days

On this day I was hanging out with Ely
I had fun and we were wild with picture taking, then and later on.
We had a yummy yummy pizza. Artichokes and things.

I remember being starving by the time we met at 6 pm because I hadn't eaten all day

So when we ordered I was kinda relieved. I think she was starving too.

The lighting in the pizza place made everything seem like we had gone back in time to the 1990's
EARLY 1990's :)
The thing about starving is this.
You think you can eat a lot
Then once you have a few bites you get full
A few more bites and you feel ill.
When I put my leftovers in the fridge, that night I couldn't look at them the next day. (Its not my favorite thing to eat leftovers, the day after I had the original)
They stayed there, then I had to put them in the freezer.
A week later I ate it....

A good day

Full of sweeties and sweeties

Gelato...definitely too sweet or rich or something.

My head wasn't the same after that. All this after I got the tiniest gelato in the world.
Guys eat this stuff up no problem...
Good thing I didn't feel nausea afterward. :(

The rest and the rest was yummy. I like the design on MIke's coffee, I have postcards just like that.
My cookie (the size of a cake), was amazing :)
