here’s a depressing article from the new york times about the dangers of antibiotics. turns out they may be partly responsible for the obesity epidemic.

cold noodles with pluout, eggplant and tofu

In link on August 16, 2013 at 12:03 am

yes, i agree. this recipe sounds very weird.


but just as martha says, it is sweet and tangy (and hot, i guess, if you put the chilis in) and delicious. i really liked it, and i bet it will be even better tomorrow for lunch.

the only problem i had was that it was hard to mix all the ingredients together. i think next time i’d dress the noodles and then dress everything else. i’d make a little pile of noodles in my bowl, and then put a scoopful of the rest.

substitutions i made, based on necessity, not a plan, just so you know they work if you have to, as well:

lemon for lime
udon for soba
regular basil for thai
canola oil for sunflower

best chocolate chip cookie recipe

In link on March 3, 2013 at 8:57 pm

have you ever tried the new york times’ epic chocolate chip cookie recipe? it has a bit of a cult following, and you can now count me as a member!

it’s really the texture that does it for me, and the hint of salt. oh my.


they are a bit of a process, yes. (you need cake flour, and the dough has to chill for at least 24 hours, and you should really use a kitchen scale to measure out the ingredients) but it is so worth it.

next time you have a long weekend or a rainy day or just a hankering for the best chocolate chip cookie around, give it a try.

study on organics

In link on October 3, 2012 at 10:21 pm

just wanted to make sure you saw this very convincing argument against the reports a couple weeks ago that said eating organics is no healthier than eating conventional vegetables. in fact, bittman calls it a “flawed study.”
