This is where the hungry come to feed. For mine is a generation that circles the globe and searches for something we haven't tried before. So never refuse an invitation, never resist the unfamiliar, never fail to be polite and never outstay the welcome. Just keep your mind open and suck in the experience. And if it hurts, you know what? It's probably worth it.

lately i have had the constant urge to make cupcakes... i finally started the quest to ultimate cup-caking on saturday. using ingredients i had on hand, i attempted a chocolate/hazelnut cupcake. it ended up being a dark chocolate cupcake, filled with nutella topped with a butter cream frangelico frosting.
i think that they turned out pretty well, and the family loved them.

earlier in the week, there were mentionings of bo luc lac (aka shaking beef) a vietnamese dish i was introduced to while in Austin. after having a terrible version of it during my birthday, and hearing that d was making it, i decided to take a stab at this dish myself. it ended up 10x better than Mai's, but i should have used a more tender cut of beef.
