Rino’s Place

Rino's

Matt and I have talked about going to Rino’s ever since we moved to Boston, but hearing about the long wait kept us away until last week. (I blame you, Guy Fieri.) We went on a Friday for lunch, thinking there would be no wait. Of course we were wrong…we still had to wait an hour. Luckily, Rino’s just opened a bar across the street so that people would have a place to wait for a table, so having to wait was no big deal.

Sweet and Sour Cabbage With Tofu

So, I’m trying something a little new with my blog and recipe formatting. I’m getting my blog redesigned this month (yay!) and realized I should probably figure out how I want to format my posts going forward. I’m experimenting with Ziplist for my recipe formatting. Anyone with a Ziplist account can save Ziplist-formatted recipes to [read more →]

Cuban Quesadillas

Writing about the Cuban sandwich at Chez Henri got me thinking about the best Cuban I’ve ever had. Chez Henri’s version came close, but it was the one I had at General Greene in Brooklyn years ago that still sticks out in my mind. Their version isn’t exactly traditional, with prosciutto replacing the ham and [read more →]

Vegetarian Hominy Chili

After deciding on a recipe from 101 Cookbooks and starting to cook the hominy, I realized the ground chile I bought [read more →]

I have a rule that I’ll only buy a Groupon (or similar deal) if its for a restaurant I actually wanted to try before seeing the deal. That doesn’t happen very often, so I jumped at the Chez Henri deal offered over the summer. Their French-Cuban menu always intrigued me, and I had been dying [read more →]

What do you do when you have a pork tenderloin sitting in the refrigerator, come up with the grand idea to make homemade moo-shu pork, but don’t want to let down your vegetarian moo-shu-loving boyfriend? Make both, of course! I decided on this recipe from Epicurious, using pork tenderloin instead of pork butt. It calls [read more →]

I didn’t grow up in the south, but I did grow up eating my dad’s hoppin’ john every new years day. It’s supposed to bring you good luck for the year – and while I’m not necessarily superstitious, I’m not one to break with tradition, either. My dad’s version always involved some kind of smoky [read more →]

Christmas Eve 2012

Happy (belated) holidays, everyone! In my family, Christmas eve is always spent with friends and Christmas day with family. My parents always hosted Christmas eve, so my mom and I wanted to keep that tradition alive even though we were away during the holidays last year. I was excited to do all of the menu [read more →]
