Pepperoni Ragu

April 21, 2015

Last week I found I had a bunch of pepperoni and sausages in my fridge and decided to make ragu with both. I chopped them roughly (removing the sausage casing) and sliced onions and cooked it all over low heat for a while. I added some garlic and oregano and salt and then a can of San Marzano […]

Fried Baked Hot Wings

February 13, 2015

I’ve chronicled it many times, but hot wings are my side piece, and there are very few instances that would cause me to swipe left. I’ve seen many attempts to make a solid baked chicken wing, but there are just some things that will always be better than alternatives, and fried wings will always best baked ones. However, […]

January 2014 Gavage

January 23, 2015

Eating here and there. Jigae and pancake at So Kong Dong. My favorite for Korean stews. My first visit to the new location of Cafe Agora. The mixed maza platter is the jam. She-crab soup at Canoe for brunch. Murky and delicious. My brother nails a rib roast. Chicken laksa at Mamak. I’m no Malaysian […]

Christmas 2014: Nothing Exceeds Like Excess

January 9, 2015

It’s basically the holiday that won’t end. Christmas is still going on for me – I have more gift exchanges this weekend with grandparents. But the main events are over and I’m back into the regular swing of things at work, and have even hit the gym a few times to sweat out the booze […]

2014 Favorites

January 2, 2015

2014 wasn’t my favorite year. It went by too fast. I didn’t cook enough, work out enough, get together with friends enough, enjoy my family enough, write enough, and drank too much. I’m a very goal oriented person, with written lists and I didn’t hold myself accountable in many areas. It will be improved upon […]

Cooking Serious Eats – Chicken Chili, Green Chile Chicken

November 17, 2014

It’s no secret that I love cooking recipes from Serious Eats, particularly those from Kenji and his Food Lab. I constantly file them away in Evernote (so I can tag them) and search for them based on my mood or the season. Recently Kenji posted a creamy chicken chili recipe and I made it nearly immediately. […]

Smoked Brisket Packer

October 23, 2014

I MADE THE ABOVE Lately I’ve been on a BBQ brisket tear – can’t get enough of it. I can’t recall the last time I ordered pork shoulder at a BBQ temple. Ribs and brisket – those are the two pillars of my smoked meat dreams. I’ve been reading a lot about brisket, as I leave for […]

The Same But Different [Burgers & Chicken]

September 16, 2014

Each month I Evernote-file dozens of recipes and ideas to try, I purchase a handful of cookbooks a year, yet half my cooking is incited by my love of comforting fatty foods, grilled things, and fried stuff, especially chicken parts. If I see a fried chicken recipe with a minor twist, I must add it to my repertoire. […]
