lunch in 20 minutes



Frozen peas with olive oil (I miss Spain) and grilled potato wedges with rosemary. Done in 20 minutes!

Grilled Potato Wedges
serves 2

olive oil
2 tsp dried rosemary
sea salt
black pepper

1. Pre-heat and grease grill (in this case I used a George Foreman grill and sprayed it with cooking spray).

2. Cut potato into wedges. Rinse and soak for 5 minutes in cold water.

3. Drain potatoes and empty into a mixing bowl. Pour in enough olive oil to coat and toss with rosemary, salt and pepper to taste.

4. Place single-layer on grill and cook until potatoes are tender all the way through, about 20 minutes.


weekday brunch



Yum. Fried egg, roasted veggies, and fresh strawberries (did you hear there’s going to be a surplus this year?)


a breath of fresh air

It’s been awhile! I merged this blog with my other one, then didn’t food blog, then stopped blogging altogether thanks to a hectic semester, then decided to start food blogging all over again! Anyway, I’m in L.A. right now visiting my sister and decided to share some delicious eats from today: fish tacos from the boardwalk on Venice Beach. Enjoy! IMG_1903



Goodbye, Italy! Take 2

It’s my second last night in Italy within the past month. I am too freaking lucky. Look at all this great food!


Caffe Latte and Pastry at a Cafe at the corner of Via Nazionale and Via Faenza in Florence.



Pastries from Il Forno, by the Mercato Centrale.




Firenza salad, Mostodolce pizza (tomato, mozzarella, truffle, mushrooms – AMAZING), and the Martellina beer – this restaurant/pizzeria brews their own beer. I tried the honey brew, and WOW. It was so good! I haven’t have house-brewed beer since I left the States, so this was a real treat – very sweet with spicy notes and a just-bitter-enough finish. Perfection!! All from Mostodolce, Via Nazionale in Florence.

Sadly, I didn’t get ANY pictures of our pasta courses we ate out our first night. Extremely disappointing. It was amazing and I forgot my camera. More later.

I am super sad to be leaving Italy.

Goodbye, all you lovely Italian pastries and caffe lattes :(.

I will be back.


soooo off topic

Guys, I totally freaking suck for not updating so much. BUT COME ON. I'M STUDYING IN SPAIN.

It seems like a good excuse to me, at least ;).

Anyway, I saw this post on LiveJournal (ahh I know) and I really want to make them when I get back. Can't wait to get into a kitchen again!!

skipping around…

WELL hello there! I have accidentally abandoned this blog! Unfortunately, that means I’ve missed out on some amazing stories, like these perfectly ripe and delicious strawberries my mom and I picked in June.






…and strawberry ice cream..


…and the perfect foamed tea latte (finally!).


But all of that is a moot point right now, because by the way: I’m studying abroad in Spain! The food here is incredible, yes, and my goal is to blog as much as I can, of course! I don’t have steady internet access as of yet (it may be changing soon), but keep your eyes out for many new posts throughout the year. I’m returning to the states on December 19th, just in time for the Christmas season: aka, BAKING SEASON. I cannot wait!
