Recipe: Korean Beef Bowl

By in Food

A “simplified” version of Korean cuisine flavors (lacking kimchi!), but fast, tasty, and providing for several days worth of leftovers.

Recipe: Basic Mac & Cheese

By in Food

This is a very traditional, no-frills take on mac and cheese — and it’s served us well — that we’ve been bringing to LUX-giving for several years.

Recipe: Cowboy Caviar

By in Food

A Tex-Mex appetizer dip, closer to pico de gallo than salsa. It’s lactose-free, gluten-free, vegetarian, requires zero cooking, and makes a giant bowlful in less than 20 minutes. Since it’s a dip, it’s forgiving and adaptable to whatever you have on hand (I have canned corn, not frozen corn!) and your taste (don’t want cilantro? use parsley! want to add black olives? go […]

Since we returned from Comic-Con, the number one most annoying thing about our apartment is not my refusal to unpack, not the hours of “So You Think You Can Dance” taking up space on the DVR, and not our landlord’s inability to give us our new lease to sign. No, it’s the complete lack of […]

Recipe: Soup for spring

By in Food, TV

Adam and I watched the first two episodes of Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution the other night, and were both intrigued and repulsed. The family whose freezer was top-to-bottom filled with frozen pizza and nothing else? The fact that American school lunches are required to have two starches? Kids not knowing what a tomato is?
