Time for a Lay Off

by noreply@blogger.com (Karen Tran) @ Karen Tran SF

Don't worry no one is getting fired. I just realized that my progress at the gym has stalled and I'm exhausted all the time. Those are clear indicators that it's time to take a break from the weights. Over the next two weeks, I'll be doing a lot of yoga, some high intensity interval workouts (HIIT), and other random and fun exercise routines that I see floating around the internet.

Exercise is the fun and easy part. The hard part of a lay off is the diet. It's a weird transition because my body has been running on such high gear with lifting weights and I could basically eat whatever I want knowing that any extra calories would be used in a productive way to repair and fuel my muscles or be offset by my 5:2 Diet activities. But now I have to watch my daily intake of calories and readjust them for my activity level.

This is not a fun or easy thing for me to do - that's why I'm on the 5:2 diet to begin with. I'm horrible at controlling my food desires. But I don't want to lose the ground I've made thus far. So that means, no more Cheese Itz

How About That?

by noreply@blogger.com (Jersey Pinoy) @ THE INDELIBLE CLEARING

VERY OLD FICTION with Christmas lights. I wrote about a different kind of caregiver in the nineties when I was a dreamy kid living in California. It appeared in The Likhaan Book of Poetry and Fiction 1998 through the invitation of its fiction editor, the prizewinning writer Charlson Ong, who wrote in his foreword that it was "a Fil-Am story that might yet extend, if not rival, the tradition established by Carlos Bulosan and Bienvenido Santos." Thanks for the kind words, Charles! But to me it is still a rookie story with problems. I am posting it here for fun, to see how it differs from the New York caregiver poem in terms of tone, language, character, what-have-you. And it's good to learn how to embed a PDF file. Credits go to Dennis Lockwood, Fritz Lederer, Zuki and Isaac Friedlander for the woodcuts.

Silicone Spatula that actually works

by noreply@blogger.com (Karen Tran) @ Karen Tran SF



Having the right tools in your kitchen can turn jobs into joys. From stirring stews to scraping out bowls, a silicone spatula is essential in any kitchen.

I was resistant to moving into the modern world and getting a silicone spatula for a long, long time. I figured if a wooden spoon was good enough for my mom (who taught me to cook), it's good enough for me. Who needed this new fangled fad?!?! Nope, not me! Especially when I got a silicone spatula in a gift bag and it did not work. It was me and my slightly burned wooden spoons for a few more years.

On a whim while watching an America's Test Kitchen episode, I figured if a silicone spatual is good enough for ATK then it will be good enough for me! At only $13.74 I figured I really can't go wrong by getting the Kitchen Aid Commercial High-Heat Scrapper, 13.5-Inch.

It was a dream. Here are some highlights:

  • Doesn't stain
  • Light weight
  • Large spatula surface to make folding and stirring a breeze
  • Cleans out a bowl or pan like a champ
  • Really stands up to high heat sauteing - 5 years strong and no melted tips
  • Dishwasher safe
  • Able to handle heavy duty mixing, super sturdy


I've been gifting this to anyone who likes or hates to cook because this is a tool that will get used and people will fall in love with it. I send it as a gift to friend's houses that I often cook at so I don't have to travel with it in my to-go cook-kit!

Here are some comments about this spatula:

"It's like having an extra finger to scrap a bowl" - sister

"I never understood why you are so crazy about this spatula until I used it" - SO

You won't regret getting this essential kitchen tool.

Spaghetti Squash Carbonara Recipe

by Huy @ HungryHuy.com

Spaghetti squash is something I’ve seen online and social media for YEARS that caught my interest. My girlfriend was actually craving spaghetti squash carbonara this week, so I finally gave in and wanted to see what the fuss was about. There are paleo and other ‘cleaner’ spaghetti squash recipes you could make instead, but if you […]

I’ve shuffled to my heart’s content and will shuffle no more.  For the time being anyway… I need to sew some clothes that will see me through the final trimester, and which are compatible with the approaching hotter weather, and which I might wear once baby departs her abode in my belly.

Black Bean Soup

by David @ David Lebovitz

When I was leafing through ¡Cuba! – Recipes and stories from the Cuban Kitchen, I was reminded how much I like black bean soup. In theory, black bean soup is just a dark bowl of beans and doesn’t sound all that exciting. Which is probably why I hadn’t made it in a while. Also black beans aren’t that easy to come by in France. There...

Roar Winemakers Dinner at MKT restaurant

Years ago, Mr. K and I were introduced to Roar wines at Benu Restaurant when the sommelier recommended a bottle of their Pinot Noir; rounded, velvety and utterly delicious.  We’ve been fans ever since and I signed up to their mailing list in order to have access to their limited production wines which sell out very quickly.

MY RAMSHACKLE CABIN in Stanhope/Hopatcong, NJ in summertime.

But for me it is King of the Hill, Top of the Heap, A Number 1--my paid-off, half-acre, one-hour drive refuge from the city. I hope by posting this I will be inspired to get out of Maspeth and do some work there when it gets warm.


Benoit Castel Pastry Shop

by David @ David Lebovitz

There’s an exciting wave of pastry places opening in Paris. The last time that happened to such an extent was when Pierre Hermé kicked off a new wave of excitement about la pâtisserie nearly two decades ago. What new is that many of the pastry shops are outside of traditional areas. Visitors often say they want to go to places “off the beaten path,” and the combination of...

Bánh Xèo – Savory Vietnamese Crêpes

Beijing Breakfasts

by julie @ meat loves salt » meat loves salt

One of my favorite things to do when friends visit us in Beijing is to take them on a morning walk to look for breakfast. It’s a great way to start the day in Beijing — there’s a buzz in the air as everyone is hurrying off to work and the city comes alive. Breakfasts carts abound everywhere, but they are particularly plentiful near subway stops. And if you happen to stumble upon a busy food street, with stalls and hole-in-the-wall ...

Before a recent visit to Los Angeles, I’d heard a lot about Sqirl, a quirky restaurant with a funny name. People were imploring me to go.
