Live Strong with a Taste of Yellow 2009 – Margarita Monday

September 14, 2009

I decided to join the Live Strong with a Taste of Yellow 2009 very late the night before I was scheduled to leave town. I know I don’t technically qualify since my entry is not a dish but rather a way of life that my dear friend, Beth Allison DiPardo, had instituted for us called, […]

Costa Rica

September 3, 2009

One the most fun trips I’ve ever taken was to Costa Rica back in 2005.  A couple of co-workers and I were talking about taking off for a weekend just to kick back and relax.  I found a flight to CR for $265 round trip on American Airines, non stop.  We could not possibly pass […]

One of the major perks of my job is the travel.  I get to travel to some pretty great destinations – Bahamas, Grand Caymans, Hawaii, Cabo, and Cancun to name a few.  Over the years, one of the most important aspects of travel for me has become the food.  When I first started, the one thing my […]

Japanese Pasta

August 24, 2009

When I was a kid growing up, my favorite thing to eat [besides Top Ramen and Kraft Mac & Cheese] was a raw egg and shoyu over rice. I loved how the gooey, slimey raw egg just coated the rice making everything slide down the back of my throat so easily. After salmonella became a […]

Gyoza Wrappers

August 20, 2009

I’m still hi-jacking this travel site and in the full spirit of the hi-jacking, I’ve decided to post up my gyoza adventure. La Fuji Mama has the most wonderful post on how to make gyoza wrappers from scratch. I looked at it, marvelled at how beautifully perfect her wrappers had turned out, and dismissed it […]

Key Lime Tart with Mascarpone Mousse I have hi-jacked my own website. This is supposed to be my travel blog and all I want to blog about is baking. I’m sure it has something to do with the fact that I haven’t traveled anywhere but seriously…I’m sure I can pull a story out from one […]

Shopping around the World…

August 14, 2009

I wish I could say that shopping is a dirty little secret of mine but unfortunately, everyone knows and when everyone knows, it ceases to be a secret. I wish I could say definitively that my Senseless Desire to Acquire Syndrome (aka SDAS) was caused by one specific thing but it’s probably actually several reasons: […]
