Cook: Chicken and Avocado Soup

I’m not into gazpacho–cold soup weirds me out.  However, Anthony Bourdain said in his book Kitchen Confidential that he could pinpoint the moment he fell in love with food.  He was on vacation with his family in France and tasted vichyssoise, which is traditionally served cold, and his whole world opened up.   Cold soup? he … Continue reading

There are things I love that I never forget about, like pasta, or pizza, or Mexican food.  Then there are things that I love that I always forget about, regardless of how delicious or lovely they are. The BLT sandwich is one of those things.  It is delicious and satisfying and reminds me of Sunday … Continue reading

Cook: Rigatoni with Green Vegetables and Avocado

I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this before, but I don’t pay for cable TV in my apartment.  I get the basics, like ABC, Fox, NBC, CBS, and, oddly enough, The CW (xoxo, Gossip Girl, duh) because that’s what came with my building.  I do not, however, get the Food Network.  For the most part … Continue reading
