Mochi for Mom

Tuesday, January 11th, 2005

Hi Mom, remember that mochi I made you buy here in Eugene? Here’s a great dessert way to cook it up that I’ve been meaning to have up here for awhile. I haven’t had mochi very often, only served sweet, but its been good. The first time I had it is when our friends Jon [...]

Paper Chef 2- Chicken, Lemon and Cabbage

Sunday, January 9th, 2005

I have to admit, when I learned of the Paper Chef ingredient list, my heart sank. I was so looking forward to crispy potatoes with chorizo and goat cheese… and cabbage is an entirely different set of food issues! During my childhood in England, I was repeatedly tortured by boiled cabbage wielding nuns who thought [...]

Heavenly Tiramisu at Napoli

Saturday, January 8th, 2005

Sweets and I went on a date Friday to go see Kinsey and to have dinner at Napoli, one of our favorite campus spots for a bottle of Chianti, ravioli and polenta lasagna. Not being the types to demand that the kitchen speed up their dinner making for our movie time, we decided to catch [...]

Sugar High Friday #4: Nuts

Friday, January 7th, 2005

Chocolate in the Clouds I couldn’t help but think of Iron Chef when assembling this creation. Dish names popped into my head… Mt Fuji in the Fog, Fuji in the Morning Mist… Cat Plop in Snow- Whoops, sorry. I am still learning to quell that little boy humor voice that speaks up now and then. [...]

Batty for Bars

Thursday, January 6th, 2005

I just spied a new bar from one of my favorite chocolate companies, Endangered Species Chocolate . This is a consciousness food business in that they want you to realize that by purchasing their chocolate you are contributing to a wildlife fund. Their website is very informative with many stories that go way beyond chocolate. [...]

Happy Days

Wednesday, January 5th, 2005

Big thanks to my secret santa! I was sent a copy of Jamie Oliver’s Happy Days with the Naked Chef, and really can’t wait to get into it. I can’t believe I haven’t leafed through it before… it’s got tons of pictures. This book contains some of my favorite Jamie recipes too, like his The [...]

Smells Like Cartoon Planet

Tuesday, January 4th, 2005

Lean in… can you smell it? Just touch your nose to the screen… If I didn’t have an olfactory wittness to this, I would swear this is a sign of the apocolypse. My crushed freshly toasted coriander seeds smelled exactly like the lemon, neh: the yellow bits of Trix cereal. I haven’t had Trix in [...]

Sushi Station

Monday, January 3rd, 2005

New Website: Sushi Station’s menu and hours Restaurant visited on December 30, 2004 Sushi A Go-Go Lunch hour for Sushi Station ends at 2:30pm, so Sweets and I dashed to catch the bus that would put us in downtown at 2. Fortunately we’re speedy walkers and made it to the restaurant in 10 minutes, time [...]

Black Eyed Peas and Collard Greens

Saturday, January 1st, 2005

Well, you’ve got to hand it to the South. I figure if cooking up a pot of Black Eyed Peas gave them enough new year luck to get Shrub back in the White House, then there’s got to be something to this Black Eyed Pea thing. Not wanting to jinx any spirits that badly again, [...]
