Bánh mì tacos

Woah here she goes. Watch out pork, she’ll chew you up. Woah here she goes. She’s a Bánh mì eater. Yes, that’s me and I loves me some Bánh mì. It is becoming quite ubiquitous in my life, and I hope it will for you too. I’ve made Bánh mì sandwiches, Bánh mì burgers, Bánh […]

A couple of project updates

Today is the last day of June, which marks the 6 month point of my 365 days project. Each month I compile a collage for your viewing pleasure. Also I think collages are fun but I can never think of anything else to apply them to. Here you go. The next “project” update is bacon. […]

Dumplestiltskin

There once was a girl long ago, who sat atop a high tower,  dreaming of the day she would have Chinese Dumplings. That was me, a few weeks ago, in my office building downtown…and yes, the dumplings were on my mind. I gazed woefully out onto the city and thought about having dim sum for […]

Bánh mì, chez Oscar

What better excuse could there be to get all gussied up, drink a lot of kir royales, eat fabulous food and bash celebrity garb than the Oscars?
