While I am certainly not one to turn down a night on the town, sometimes you just want to stay in and have some delicious warm crisp homemade pizza. Who has the energy, you might ask. The truth of the matter is it isn’t hard or very time-consuming. Let me show you what I mean.
So now that we have some sort of stability in life, we celebrated at one of our favorite Mexican put stops, el pueblito.
So it’s been pretty exciting times as the articles I wrote for the hispanic publication here in Lancaster has finally gone to print! Here ya go:
Thanksgiving just passed us by and I’m sure there was a lot of tradition and innovation in all of your kitchens. Our kitchen was more of a collaboration than usual. The reason I say that is because when I was little it was basically my mom cooking. Then when I learned how to cook and learned that I enjoyed cooking, I took over. My mom would step in from time to time to answer a question or two but she very gladly handed it over to me. One of the dishes I did own, however, was the cranberry sauce. Continue reading
A couple weeks ago we celebrated our third anniversary (Yay for us!). To celebrate, we decided to go to Himalayan Curry & Grill. A few weeks later we wound up doing a photo shoot of their food (which we’ll get in to later) but that night was our celebration. We started off eating their wafer thin chips with what I believe to be anise seeds. Here is one with a bit of their tomato relish.
After reading Adam Roberts go on and on about pasta, how delicious it is, how easy it is, I decided to make my own. After reading about his spring vegetables pasta, I ventured out to make a carnivorous and less cheesy (in the literal sense) pasta. So I decided to start off with the base of many great things, an onion.
This last week was the Lancaster Taste the World in Downtown Lancaster.
Susan and I are always excited about this event but due to the rain, she stayed home and I ventured out with my dad (he heard about the pig ears and the cactus salad and was more than happy to go). Our first stop was Upohar.
As I started writing this post I suddenly realized how far behind I am in these posts! You see February is a big birthday month and to celebrate my brother turning 31 we went to Carrabba’s Italian Grill. I was curious since I’ve had a couple good comments about it and I wanted to see how much of it was true. We started off the evening with a Sangria. I wouldn’t say that it was something that would compel me to rush back but it was a decent enough accompaniment to our meal.
Recently I was approached about an interesting opportunity to support an organization called Kids and Cultures with a local foodie project called Taste the World (Lancaster) where people can buy a passport and visit local multicultural restaurants and try some of their food. They have a great Facebook page and if you’ve been paying attention, you’ll notice that I’ve been posting some of those pictures and that is because I got tapped to take the pictures.
A couple weeks ago was my birthday (as you may have noticed from my birthday posts) and we went to Manna Pan Asian Fusion with my family. Being fairly new in the area I decided to take to the internet and found that Manna has great reviews. It was a slow Friday afternoon so I was a little concerned that service might be off, but as soon we got there the waitress showed up to take our drink orders. I decided to try out the Tai Sweet Tea.
