No leftovers..

..not this time. I went to Taco Chulo the other day and was introduced to something incredible. The Santa Cruza burrito. It was in the Chulos y Pimps section and to say the least there was nothing left for the extra plate to pass around. Spinach, avocado, black beans, peppers and more. If you are in Williamsburg Brooklyn anytime soon, you're just gonna have to get your own.

I'm not sure about you but sometimes I wake up very early. I don't know why, maybe its the stomach roaring, or maybe its the sun peaking into the bedroom alittle too soon. Either way, there is really so much you can do when its the weekend and no one is awake and you don't want to be too noisy. Sure you can go for a run, read a book, or better yet, you can make bagels! Yup, nothing better than your friends waking up to bagels and better still when their fresh made in your own kitchen. I know, you can just buy them for a $1 but what's the fun in that?

Time to go fishin'

On the eastern tip of Long Island there's a fish so good a friend once called it a sea cherry. Yes, tis the season for Black Sea Bass (pictured here is actually Branzino which is alittle more silver and slender than its fatter Atlantic cousin). It may be one of the easiest, most tasty dishes you can make and rarely will there be anything left over. Ready? Other than frying, this is how you should cook it. Clean your fish, stuff with lemons and herbs, place in a baking dish, salt and pepper both sides, decorate with olives, garlic and grape tomatoes, bake. Now you try..




..and don't forget to eat the cheeks.

Wimberley Style!! When in Texas, you've gotta have Migas. I don't care if you buy 'em at Maude's or you have a big 'ol kitchen and making them for the ones you love.. EAT! This is what you need: Tortilla chips, eggs, onions, garlic, jalapeno, and cheese. Pair w/ some tomatoes, guacamole, and refried or black beans and everyone is going to be smiling. We made these one January morning in the country after a good solid night of fun. Let me tell you.. nothing hits the spot like this.

Little coconut for the soul..


This easy dish came together at the end of December.. It was cold and all those good root veggies and tough greens are still at their best: Acorn squash, kale, carrots, grape tomatoes finished w/ some mushrooms. What better way to warm the soul then served over some brown rice and coconut milk. Add jalapeno early and the heat is on!
