I always try to eat delicious food. Unfortunately I don't have that much money, so I have to cook a lot of it at home. But thats OK because I love cooking and I love eating at home with my wife. This is a website with my favorite recipes and a little bit of commentary.

So much catching up to do

I have so much catching up to do when I finally get home. Just a couple quick updates for now. First is from when I was at Vanderbilt. It is located in the middle of a little college town.

When I was there I ate at this place called Bosco's the night before the interview. I got blackened chicken with noodles. It was extremely tasty. I bought a Cajun cookbook to look into the making of such a dish. More news on that to follow in the coming months.

Also at Vanderbilt I ate at a place called Sportman's, which is famous for their BBQ. I got BBQ on cornbread, which was pulled pork served on a cornbread pancake. Oh my gosh it was good. That prompted me to make some BBQ to serve over cornbread. I will post pictures and instructions later. I made beer can chicken. It was amazing.

I just got back from Miami. I went out in South Beach on Saturday night. Spring break was in full effect. It was like Girls Gone Wild down there. I was with a friend from NYC who is from Israel. We stopped to eat at a little Pita place which was amazing. It was true Israeli food. I got a pita with stuff in it. They take a pita and stuff it with grilled meat (lamb or chicken). Then they put a few sauces in there and load it up with what they call salads. They put like 4 different toppings or salads in there. Mine had grilled eggplant, tabouleh, cucumber and tomato salad, and the Israeli version of cole slaw. It was absolutely delicious. My friend said that it is the real deal, exactly what he eats in Israel, but of course he says it is better there. Needless to say I was hugely impressed.
