Away for wedding

Sorry I’ve been MIA lately.

Been planning a wedding from abroad while starting a new job. Hectic and stressful, I can’t wait to relax by the beach.

Will resume all eating and writing once I get back from Bali!

Happy Eating!

Dear Food Diary:
It’s that time of the year again, when food lovers go crazy about these wild garlicky greens. I just had some simply grilled last night. So good.

This Saturday, the Ramp Fest 2014 is happening and you can munch on everything “ramps”.

ISOLA Mondrian Soho: Beautiful lunch on our special day

Dear Food Diary:
March 28th was our 3rd anniversary and the day we decided to make it legal. We’ve been planning our wedding ever since the proposal. And though the real celebration won’t be until June, StalkerBoy and I decided to do City Hall first.

Afterwards, he picked this beautiful lunch spot – Isola Mondrian Soho to toast the start of our special day. One of the prettiest outdoor dining rooms I’ve seen, even on a rainy day, it looked gorgeous. The entrance was perfect for the capturing special day.

The food was good too.

[ RECIPE ] Provenzal Chimichurri Sauce

provenzal chimichurri sauce recipe 3

Dear Food Diary:
Growing up in Argentina, salsa Provenzal and Chimichurri were quintessential to any good asado or parrilla aka BBQ grilled meats. The garlicky herb mixture, paired well almost everything. Honestly, I slathered it on anything from chicken to fries.

Because I could never chose between the two, I started making my hybrid recipe of Provenzal Chimichurri Sauce. Provenzal or chimichurri purists need not email complaints. Food is personal and we should be able to have fun and make it the way we like it.

PEACEFOOD CAFE: Vegan treats

Peacefood Cafe - dumplings

Dear Food Diary:
When I was younger, a meal wasn’t complete without meat. Though I’m still a carnivore at heart, aging has slowly changed that. As much as I love steak, there are days my body just needs a time out.

Don’t worry, this bacon loving Chubby isn’t turning vegan or anything. Just trying to have a little more balanced in my diet.
