collegiate foodie chick. student of letters with a mammoth's appetite.
There's a cart out in Flushing sometimes that has grilled chicken hearts on a stick for $1. I could eat those every night.
chocolate croissants. nutella croissants if they have them.
ho fun duck noodle soup from the chinese restaurant nearby my house.
whoppers, because i'm sure they're space-ready anyways. (whoppers the candy)
electric hot water pot with tea pot warmer. it's called a "tea tray" i drink a lot of tea. :)
This is sort of bias just because I live in Buffalo, but I really think Buffalo could be up there. We've had a lot of TV appearances lately, and aside from being a wings/beef on weck mecca, we've really come to have a lot to offer. From home-growns like our very own illegal bread co-op (for real, they built a clay oven themselves, host classes and offer cheap bread shares), our sustainability cycle (the spent grains from the Pearl Street Brewery are fed to heritage hogs that are used to make lard sold at Five Points Bakery. That's only one example!), to our wealth of soul food, Jamaican, Puerto-Rican, Somali, Italian, Vietnamese, Thai, etc. food culture which we owe to our history of immigrants flocking to the booming steel plants of the rust belt, we're not just a second rate city anymore! Hell, Serious Eats only posted about WNY a couple of weeks ago!
i hate those mugs! they really do seem like a wonderful idea at first, but the big problem that i had was that after a little while, the rubber gasket around the press itself wears away, causing whatever you've got in there to steep continually. basically rendering the whole thing useless. friends of mine have had similar complaints about the smaller bodum french presses with rubber gaskets. french presses are meant to be made out of metal!
I loooove reading these. I don't have Bravo anymore (mysteriously disappeared), so these recaps are hilarious because they're a substitute for the actual show for me.
Tru Teas in Buffalo, NY
Most buttery and perfect scones you will ever have, served with green tea butter and plum preserves.
Unfortunately, closed a year or two ago. Haven't found a good enough replacement yet.
plain chewy bagel (preferably from ridgewood eats or bergen bagel), plain cream cheese, nova lox, red onions and capers with gorilla coffee!
@Carey Jones that's why i was apprehensive about her winning. i want food network to stray from the quick stay at home mom meals to actually knowledgeable culinary tv that doesn't talk down to the viewer. at least her food is good and not that semi-home made garbage. she'll probably win.
i'm annoyed that he never explained exactly what harissa is. i had to wikipedia it.
notice how brett and melissa didn't hug. hahaha
remind me. which loser's got a show now?
it troubles me that i can't decide who i want to win.
sardines. if i eat them around anyone, they'll hem and haw or complain about the smell. my dad will tell me that i have to change the garbage and soak the bowl and fork i used so it doesn't smell like fishiness.
fresh lemons, buckwheat honey (or maple syrup) and cool water.
mix, sip, repeat. mm.
steak rostito from mighty taco, a buffalo fast food chain.
