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.

my friend tramanh passed me along this link about fake tilt shift photography... which is AMAZING. making photographs look like a miniature toy-like world. LEGOLAND. or a la Mr. Roger's Neighborhood.

i had to try this for myself.

brunch and 'southern' eats.

truffled egg salad tramezzini - homey and classy at the same time.

ingredients: bread (usually white, cut off the crust), boiled eggs, dijon mustard, mayo, olive oil, pepper, sea salt, truffle oil

oven "fried" chicken and red beans and rice

chicken -boneless/skinless chicken thighs, italian dressing (chicken marinade), bread crumbs
red beans and rice - kidney beans (drained), sausage, cajun seasoning, worcestershire, rice

i found that the above were good and easy.. make with what you already have in the kitchen meals.
