I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! I haven’t made video game themed food recently because I haven’t played games that made me want to eat them. But the moment I saw Tearaway, I was in love. I knew exactly which ingredients I needed to make Tearaway themed food and I couldn’t be more excited to make it out of food and eat it. Also […]

I realized that lately I haven’t made any cute food because I’ve been busy making stuffed stuff for charities and gifts.

This is something I made in August and it’s more like a different take on one of the old dishes I did before, but I still thought I’d post some photos of it.

Ever since we moved to San Diego, we’ve been buying most of our food from the farmers’ market right by our place every Saturday. It’s kind of fun and also good since we never took advantage of the farmers’ market when we lived in Brooklyn. The other day at the farmers’ market I saw a lot of beets, and I realized that I’ve actually never […]
