Vegetarian Blue Cheese Buffalo Burgers

In this solo cooking adventure, Kate recalls with fondness her days of eating buffalo wings and attempts to recapture that feeling in vegetarian form.

For a self-proclaimed foodie, I have very lowbrow tastes sometimes. Take for example, chicken wings. I had never had a single wing until I graduated college, if you can believe it. And then one day, life as I knew it, changed in an instant. I still remember that fateful afternoon. I was sitting in Collin’s Bar in midtown (RIP) and they put out their Sunday vat of wings for regulars.

Bittman’s Yakisoba

In this solo cooking adventure, Kate attempts to find redemption for Mark Bittman though he doesn’t know he needed any.

I was mad at Mark. I know. It wasn’t his fault that I ruined the main component of his ginger fried rice (the rice) and therefore was unimpressed with the final result.
