Suddenly everything has changed.

Sunday, February 22nd, 2009

Greetings from Chicago! I spent last night sorting masking tape from Scotch tape from double-sided tape, and that’s when I knew that I was finally settled in my new home. You’ve hit a rhythm when you’ve shifted from the stage when you accidentally extinguish the pilot light in your gas stove and panic because you […]

Sugared cranberries: snappy, sparkle, and pop.

Monday, December 1st, 2008

Oh! Yes. Hi. It’s been a while hasn’t it? So how have you been? … Mm hmm. … Mm hmm. … Oh really? And you had to have Him/Her/It removed from your home/office/kidney? Well I’m glad you’re coping. I feel a little bad for It/Him/Her, but whaddya gonna do. What about me, you ask? I’ve […]

Eggs!

Saturday, October 4th, 2008

My mother was a country girl who grew up on a small farm in the southwestern region of South Korea near Mokpo. My grandfather repaired bicycles and raised white sweet potatoes on the rich red soil. My mother and her friends often collected the abundant eggs scattered all over the fields from the chickens everyone […]

Let’s get ready to crumble.

Tuesday, July 29th, 2008

As I see it, the problem with nature is that it’s natural. It’s hot, humid, and contains insects. For instance, there’s this shiny black bug that looks like a cross between a spider and a housefly. It twitches, skitters in circles, and jumps on you for fun, but only when you’re on a tall wobbly […]

That chocolate chip cookie recipe.

Wednesday, July 23rd, 2008

You’ve probably read about the cookies by now. Perhaps you have questions. Should I? Yes. When? Now. How many? As many as possible. You know how many Cookie Monster might bake? Like, double that. Eaten with what? Are you a commie? Everybody knows that you eat chocolate chip cookies with ice-cold milk. Cow is traditional, […]

When failure can be sweet.

Wednesday, July 2nd, 2008

JOB SEARCH. These are two of the most miserable words in the English language. They make your stomach ooky and keep you from posting to your food blog as much as you used to. Before I started my job search, life was more idyllic, and the two most miserable words in the English language were […]

Not-The-One-But-Nice-For-Fling mulberry sorbet.

Tuesday, June 24th, 2008

My very first post two years ago featured mulberries. I had hoped to make Jeffrey Steingarten’s mulberry granita recipe last year to celebrate my first blogiversary, but a freak late spring frost scared all the budding mulberries off. This year the berries were a good two weeks late for my second blogiversary. Not very reliable, […]

In search of lost lime.

Thursday, June 5th, 2008

Today is Bon Appegeek’s second anniversary. I’m marking the day with a long post that has taken more than two years to write. There’s a recipe at the end. I promise. After several years of on-again off-again reading, I finally started volume 4 of Proust’s In Search of Lost Time (À la recherche du temps […]

Grand Gianduja Stracciatella Gelato.

Thursday, May 29th, 2008

I’ve met people who eat chocolate every day, survive on chocolate when depressed, and smoke chocolate after sex. You know those people. Perhaps you are one. Well, not me, I’m stronger than that. Chocolate can’t take me on its own—it takes two to take me down. Caramel plus chocolate works. Almonds can help out. Recently […]

Ginseng and the children.

Thursday, April 3rd, 2008

This post started as a serious essay on the cult of health among Asians, Koreans especially. After some research, I decided it would be better as an essay on endangered plants like wild ginseng that have been harvested to near extinction by overzealous Asians obsessed with the supposed health benefits. People like my parents often […]

Hats off: Tuna and Goat Cheese Tartare.

Wednesday, March 26th, 2008

Let’s say you’re a woman who never wears hats. One day you spot an outrageously stylish hat, the kind of hat Hollywood startlets from the forties wore when they put their handprints in that sidewalk wherever it is where they do the handprint thing while flashbulbs popped and adoring fans cried at how fabulous they […]

The kitty isn’t even wearing green.

Monday, March 17th, 2008

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! I know what you’re thinking. You’re thinking, “Why is there a picture of a cat on a food blog on St. Patrick’s Day? Moreover (if you’re the type of person who uses the word ‘moreover,’ which I’m not, except just now), why does the picture include an oxalis plant which isn’t […]

Cookies, chihuahuas, and cartwheels.

Monday, March 10th, 2008

A mini-van pulled into my driveway. This could mean only one thing. I pried my butt out of my chair and flew down the hallway with the grace of a gazelle bounding across rice fields in the Orient. Are there gazelles in the Orient? It doesn’t matter. My body launched into a triple cartwheel and […]

Good-bye farmers, good-bye broccoli, good-bye green beans.

Friday, January 25th, 2008

Back in November I wrote a post about the final week of the local farmer’s market: about the gift of free broccoli from my favorite stand, the last green beans of the season, the hand-lettered cardboard sign that said “SUPER TENDER.” You would have kissed your rutabagas and wiped away tears after reading that entry…had […]

Drommar: Swedish dream reindeer antler cookies.

Saturday, December 22nd, 2007

Actually just deer antlers, not reindeer antlers. I thought reindeer antlers sounded more, oh, Christmas-y. At least until we get to the part where we eat them. Several years ago I bookmarked a Gourmet recipe for Drommar, or Swedish Dream Cookies, because it called for coconut, which I love, and ammonium carbonate, which piqued my […]
