On Hallowine and Czech Salads.


Hurricane Sandy’s outside, and she’s turning out to be a hot mess. The rain started a few hours ago and there’s going to be a lot of wind and water. And apparently no power. For quite a few days. I felt like a kid when I got the e-mail letting me know my office is […]

Tiny Kitchen Adventures: Vegetarian Phở


Before we moved, Shaun warned me the new kitchen was “tiny.” When I saw it for the first time, I realized I had a lesson or two to teach him about center-city apartments: the kitchen is not “tiny” by city standards. I was actually impressed! But in my excitement, I forgot about the elephant in […]

Back to Cooking, Sort of.


Before leaving for Europe I got hooked on eating raw, vegan meals. During the time around the bar exam this included mostly smoothies and simple salads with seeds, nuts, and seasonal vegetables, and raw hummus and nut butter. It was a meal plan inspired by a nutrition program I took part in at the Eat! center […]

Polyface Meat Meal #2: Chicken


The hardest part of exam time is the sad puppy eyes searing through your back as you’re bent over some textbook or hornbook for hours a day. “Play with me,” they beg. And, they don’t understand [or care] about “grades” or “jobs.” So I thought Grady needed a friend. In lieu of a second puppy [which […]

How We Spent Other People’s Money


In case you forgot [which I’m sure you did, but I won’t hold it against you], I won something in February. I promised I’d let you know how we spent it, so here goes. But first, I have to preemptively address what I’m sure will be on a few of your minds after the post: […]

7A, From Memory


I used to live across Tompkins Square Park from 7A Cafe, an awesome restaurant, bar and brunch spot in the East Village. It was the site of many a meal, caraffe of wine, or late-night snack [it’s 24 hours! love] throughout my years at NYU. Before I became vegetarian, one of my go-to sandwiches was […]

The Mother Dough Strikes Again


Christina Tosi’s “Mother Dough” recipe appeared here and here over spring break [drool], and made a return last night in another post-run creation by Shaun. Yesterday’s 11-miler was rough at times. The [freakishly] warm temperatures threw us for a loop, I was in a bad mood because I couldn’t get my GPS watch to do […]

Sunday Comfort Food


Guess who’s back? The e-vet called this morning around 8:30 to let us know Grady kept food down all night and we could take him home. He’s on strict bedrest for the next two weeks and has so many pills we actually made a Google document with a schedule, but at least he’s in our […]

So What, I Fixate.


A few weekends ago when we stopped at The Market at Bellair for sandwiches, a bag of fresh english muffins from a local bakery caught my eye. I’m not a big bread person and can’t think of the last time I ate an english muffin, but these muffins looked perfect. I thought about them for […]

Pizza Night


It didn’t take me long to answer my question from the last post re: what to do with the rest of the Mother Dough. Clearly, the best option for snow day dinner was cozy and filling home-made pizza with Italian wine. We used to make pizza with store-bought dough [they make it fresh for you […]
