Corn Chowder

If you have ever tried to photograph soup, you will know that it is hard to make it look appealing. It usually looks like a bowl of mush, or a bowl of a solid color. No glamour, that’s for sure. But just because a food may not look great in a photograph doesn’t mean it’sContinue reading “Corn Chowder”

Healthy Garlic Breadcrumb Baked Fish

I am many miles away from this place… Going to school in upstate New York means that the fish supply is questionable.

Thanksgiving, whileContinue reading “A Broiled Turkey”

Australia needs to learn how to make pizza. It is ironic that some of the yummiest pizza I have tasted in a while was in Bali. On a different note, there is a Domino’s around the corner from my apartment, and although I have not personally ordered a pizza from here, I have seen them.Continue reading “Australian Domino’s Mystery”
