Blackberries are tasty. However, they’re even better when they’re free.
Holy smokes it’s been a while since my last post. I’ve been hounded by people to hurry and get something on here. I’ve been busy with graduating, studying for a professional board exam, vacationing, and just being lazy. Laziness no more. We picked strawberries this summer and if you’re in an area that has it, I highly suggest doing it. Store bought strawberries are just watered down crap honestly.
Tiramisu is a great dessert, a classic. It’s my girlfriend’s favorite so it was only fitting to make it for Valentine’s Day. And sure I can go to the store and buy Italian ladyfingers for $2.50 a package, but I’d much rather make them from scratch.
Salmon is a unique fish. It’s not meaty like tuna and not bland like cod, but it has it’s own thing going on. It’s hearty enough to be an entree, yet mild enough to take on different flavors. And living here in Seattle allows for access to the best salmon most of the year (unless you live on a river in Alaska, then you’re golden).
I’ve been sick for the past week and a half. Whenever we get sick, we crave childhood feel-good dishes like chicken noodle soup, mom’s beef stew, basically a lovely soup. I crave won ton soup. It was a tradition when I was younger to go to Patti’s kitchen in the mall, and after they closed, to Pah Ke’s for their won ton soup, the best on Oahu by far. So when I got the sniffles recently, I thought “mmmm, won tons”. After sampling a few places around here in Seattle, I was only pleased once. So I decided to make my own.
