I’ve got about a gillion things I keep meaning to write about, but not enough time. So here’s a crazy catch-up post. Enjoy. First, this is a shot of the table while waiting for dumplings at Lam Zhou. I will never get tired of this place. I love how they reuse bottles and you kind of wonder what’s in them.
Speaking of Chinatown, this guy looked like he might jump through the glass and attack me.
Speaking of shellfish, umm…
Back to Chinatown, I made another visit to Xi’an. The “pork burger” is not just good, it’s insanely good.
This chocolate banana bread was kind of a disaster. I was going to write a whole post about it, but you’ll just have to take my word for it.
These macaroons were a near disaster. I didn’t use parchment and they were totally stuck the pan. Oops!
These blondies came to the rescue. My new theory is that most desserts seem yummier if you just put some of the chips, chunks, nuts, etc., on top., rather than mix them all into the batter.
This post is really all over the map now. The original Dojo on St. Mark’s may be gone, but at least there’s still one on 4th Street over by NYU. I’ve been eating this hijiki tofu sandwich for my whole adult life, and I still love it.
You don’t know what spicy is until you’ve eaten at Song 7.2 in the East Village.
OMG the sandwiches at Xie Xie! I heard they were gonna open downtown. I need details… now!
I’m so addicted to the dream bars recipe from The Sweeter Side of Amy’s Bread.
Seriously, Tiny’s Giant makes the best veggie burgers on the planet. It’s no contest. This thing rules.
Jen made this amigurumi mouse (with catnip) for Kiki. Despite this photo, I think Kiki loved it.
