Free Movie, with at least a $30 meal

I was reading through some blogs trying to find out whats happening in LA and came across this:

Dine at H&H restaurants and your movie is on us! (Hollywood and Highland)

I have not tried any of these places except CPK but not since high school and I hate crepes unless they are made in a non restaurant setting (ie the streets of paris). Johnny Rockets is gross except for the milkshakes and I cant make myself buy $30 worth of milkshakes. Im a lover of Shabu Shabu so that maybe a possibility and The Grill's reviews on yelp are not bad at all. Or I would just go to Rise (never been) and waste my $30 on some drinks rather than bad overpriced food at the other places.

Through February 15, 2009
Show $30 or more in same-day receipts from California Pizza Kitchen, French Crepe Company, The Grill on Hollywood, Johnny Rockets, Koji’s Sushi & Shabu Shabu, rise at The Highlands, Trastevere, or uWink to receive 2 FREE Mann Theatres movie tickets.

Redeem your same-day receipts at the Visitor Information Center on level 1, under the Kodak Theatre Archway. One pair of tickets per person, per restaurant receipt, per day. While supplies last.

Ooey-Gooey they say Double, I say Triple Chocolate Cookies

Milk's Ooey-Gooey Double Chocolate Cookies


YES, I did make these. So now that my cleanse is officially over, what better way to celebrate than to make cookies!! Three different types of chocolate to be exact!

This all came about during my cleanse, when I would tease myself everyday by looking at various food articles and blogs. This one I found in the LA Times. A reader frequents MILK and wrote into the LA Times for the ooey-gooey chocolate cookie recipe. I read it and said I must try it!

Let me just add my two cents about MILK. I have only been once and had a mint chocolate chip shake. It was delicious but also completely overpriced. I imagine these cookies would be the same.

You see I am first a baker and then a chef. Its due to my massive sweet tooth. So I have made my fair share of chocolate cookies. Most of them are amazing and I basically if I have a recipe in front of me that includes chocolate, people adore my cookies/brownies you name it. I literally grew up on making chocolate chip cookies. My first recipe coming from the Stars dessert book. I had made them so much I figured out the perfect alteration to them to make them my own. And this was all done at the age of 9 years old. But then my house burned down in the Malibu fires in '93 and the recipe with my alterations were lost forever.

I definitely have come a long way since then, but with all that experimenting at a young age, I really got to understand what flour can do in the baking process. But with each new recipe, it takes at least once to bake it to understand what all the components will do anyways.

So back to Monday (2/26) and the official end of the cleanse. After a food filled weekend, what better way to make it last a bit longer than to make these cookies. And I did. With cocoa powder (2 tablespoons), unsweetened chocolate (1/4 pound) and chopped bits of bittersweet chocolate (1 pound!). It actually was a very simple recipe and very quick to put together. The recipe called for it to make 18 cookies, but I realized the cookies would be very large, so I made half the large size, and the other half a normal cookie size. It was interesting to see them bake. At the half way mark when I turned the pan, the middle was still high with runny sides. But by the time I took them out of the oven, they looked like real cookies.

I tried one right away and it was DECADENT!! But they were also very soft and tender due to the chocolate chips inside them. I couldn't pick them up yet without them falling apart and I had to get to class, so i put them in the fridge to bring them together. I actually liked this. It made them a bit more crunchy due to the chocolate chips coming back to its true hard self, then surrounded in chocolate cookie.

I tried one more, and still DECADENT!!! Though refrigerating made them loose the ooey-gooeyness, it did not lose any of the sweetness. Literally you only need one cookie these things are soo sweet. Now its time to give them out and see what others think of them.

Though these are not my favorite chocolate cookies, I prefer some others that I make that is similar to this recipe just not as decadent, they still are delicous. I will make some "Chocolate Drops" later and post a blog on it. The cookie showdown, soon to come!!


I have pictures, but they are on a camera that I dont know how to use. Hopefully pictures will be up by mid week. : )

Monday, January 26, 2009


So I thought my Saturday was eventful, but my Sunday was a close second!

After the pancakes (previous scrub post) Peter, Alex, Kevin and I (all previous guests from the night before) went to the Lakers Game: Lakers vs San Antonio Spurs.

This day I officially broke my alcohol fast. Im sorry but Laker games are so much more fun with beer. So we enter the Staples Center, and go straight for the beer line and then to our seats, which are awesome seats, center section 111 row really close. It was my first game of the season and I was ready. We get there a bit late, but the Lakers have already set the lead. The game gets close, but never that close. We maintain our lead the whole game and win!!!

Anyways onto the food of the staples center. I usually stay away, due to some poor choices in the past. But did you know they have Nate n' Al's now!!! How cool is that!! Though I did not end up having any because of the big breakfast we had in the morning. But next time I will. My friends though didnt listen to my advice (they are from the south bay so they really just dont understand the goodness of Nate n Al's anyways). One got a hot dog and the other got nachos from Comacho's. I was shocked with both choices but actually had some of each and for junk food, it was tasty. I know what I just said. Maybe it was just the cleanse that got to me, and the lack of having anything processed, but i did enjoy my two bits of the hot dog and some chips covered in guac and that gross processed nacho cheese. OH MY GOD IM SORRY I AM ADMITTING THIS, but it was good and it will probably be the only time I will think this, so dont judge me!!

Onwards and up as they say. The game ended, we won, got our free two tacos from jbo (jack in the box) and walked over to LA Live to the Yard House.

We got seated right away and in a booth!! Oh do I love booths. Well we ordered our beers, I got the Chupacabra, raawwwrrr thats why I ordered it, the scary name, but definitely a good beer. Then we all shared the chopped salad, Bearnaise sliders and grilled Jamaican wings. Even though the beer was flowin, we all loved and devoured our food. What I was most surprised with, was the freshness of the food. The chopped salad actually had real corn, real veggies freshness bursting out from it! The sliders were also top qual. Usually you have sliders that are too bready and not enough meat. This was not the case. The bread was a squishy bun and the meat was tasty. It came with 4 sliders so one per person, perfect! The chicken wings were good too, not too spicy not too sweet. I usually do not eat wings anymore. The reason why? My acupuncturist told me all the hormones of the chicken are in the wings. And I knew that these wings were not organic but they were also drumettes, so whatever I was with a bunch of boys and they didnt care anything about hormones and wings. They just wanted food.

All in all, I am a total chain hater. But the Yard House is perfectly located to the Staples Center, with a great selection of drinks and definitely edible food. If you are down enjoying a game, this is a perfect stop to come after for some more drinks and appies!

After the Lakers and the Yard House, we went back to Koreatown for some R&R. Suddenly the sun had set and my stomach started to growl again. What better way to end the weekend than with some tacos!! I have not been able to enjoy tacos since my cleanse and even before that I was on some anti taco run. Well that is officially over and to El Parian we went.

Basically its a very simplistic setting. Grilled meats, goat, carne asada and carnitas. We came for the tacos and nothing else. Since I had my pork the day before, I got the carne asada. My first time with beef in like three weeks.

So lets start with the chips. They were completely forgettable. Not homemade and definitely from a bag. I mean they were round and salted. Whatever. Then the tacos, mmmm. Big homemade tortillas with LOTS of carne asada. I loved it because it also came with a plate with onions, cilantro and tomatoes. So basically we got to make our own tacos, well the fixin parts. I ate all of it. For not having beef in such a long time, this definitely hit the spot. The big juicy pieces of carne asada really were delicious. Thats what I call a hefty taco! And for four tacos total, it was only 12 dollars. Now thats a steal in these recession times and why I love tacos. I will have to come back for the other meats and if I do, Ill let you know.

PS: I saw another couple in there get a dinner of beans, rice and meat ( I dont know which kind) but he definitely was into it using his fingers and teeth and not much else. A sight like that always brings a smile to my face. Embracing our try carnivorous traits.

Also after not eating beef for 3 weeks, this was the hardest for my body to recover from. The body in general find beef very complicated to digest and boy oh boy did I realize that. It took me all night and all morning for my bloated stomach to finally go away. Next time I'll just use more of my digest tincture :)!!

I dont want no Scrubs

So the cleanse was coming to an end, and a week before I knew I wanted to make Mac and Cheese this weekend. This was just no ordinary mac and cheese. It came from the Balthazar Cookbook and literally is the most delicious mac and cheese I have ever had. The first time I had it, it was peters bday and his amazing mother cooked it for him. I fell in love instantly. I then proceeded to cook it for my own bday last year.

Let me just say, I was a kid who did not grow up with boxed meals. My mother was a chef and I was forced to eat mixed greens as a child and iceberg was NOT allowed. I just wanted to be a normal kid growing up, I just wanted the food that all the other kids were having at lunch. I didnt want fresh fruit, I wanted cookies and lunchables. Boy oh boy as I grew up, I cannot thank my mother enough for force feeding me mixed greens. I mean who would I be now if i grew up on iceberg and lunchables??! Well I wouldn't have such a divine palate as I do now.

Anyways back to the Mac and Cheese. Saturday was a good day. I woke up early, well I had to, my car had to be moved by 8:00 otherwise I wouldn't get another $45 ticket. So what did I do, I drove all the way to the Santa Monica farmers market and got some food for my dinner that night. I picked up some delicious Harry's Berry's (only the best strawberries around!) some other fruits and my greens for the night.

:::::Flash Forward past ikea (read blog below):::::

After setting up all the ikea furniture, it was time to get the place ready for the guests! Why were we having guests? Our friend was leaving us, from Los Angeles to San Fran. Though it may be close, there will still be no more crazy weekends with him around. Sad times are ahead, so we must go out in style!

After cleaning up the apt and setting the table, everything is ready for the guests, except the food! Time to start cooking! The menu, very simple: Mac and Cheese, steamed broccoli and spinach. If im having my cheese I must balance it out with my greens.

So the chef (me) starts cookin! I put peter on cheese grating duty (Gruyere and Parmesan) and then cleaning the spinach. I started browning the bacon (1/4 pound diced) and cooking the pasta (whole box of elbow macaroni) and then combining the two. Then the sauce, mmmmmm. Brought 5 cups of WHOLE milk to a foamy boil and in another saucepan melt the butter (1/2 stick). Make the roux by adding 1/2 cup of flour to the butter once the foam had subsided. Then ladle in the milk, one cup at a time, while whisking. The sauce will become thick and when it bubbles gently add in 2 cups of the Gruyere and 1 cup of Parmesan. The cheese will melt and the sauce becomes pure ecstasy, and I almost forgot to add the salt and pepper but I did just in time! Then tasting time!! oh man thick yummy cheesy goodness. I poured it all over the macaroni. This was my first mistake though. The recipe asked for a 10x14 inch dish, but I had a 9x13 dish. I poured in all the sauce when I should have left a bit out. I realized when I put it in the oven at 400 degrees, it was soaked so it could not brown. After ten minutes of cooking I added the last cup of Gruyere but still it did not brown. Oh well.

Anyways, I steamed the broccoli and spinach and doused it in lemon juice and salt and pepper and then everything was ready. Laid it out for our guests and we all dug in. Though the top may have not been brown, it was still tasty and delicious. Yea it was not perfect, it was still damn tasty! Overall the meal was a hit, everyone liked it, even the boy who doesnt like macaroni and cheese. So thank you Balthazar for puttin this amazing recipe in my life. And Michael, I owe you one, Im sorry I couldnt save any for you. But its just another excuse to make it again!!!

For dessert I kept it simple, and took a trick from my mother. Sliced up some strawberries, oranges and grapefruits. It was perfect, no sugar necessary and everyone loved it! They all couldn't believe how delicious the grapefruit was. I actually got to change peoples opinions on the grapefruit! You see when you slice it up and keep the pith out of it, Oro Bianco's are trully sweeeeet and perfect. So no need to be afraid of the scary sour grapefruits, its a thing of the past and dont you forget it!

The best part of the meal was definitely the company! Being able to use the dining room for the first time was so fun. At age 24, I got to throw my first dinner party and it was fun to act like a grown up, even though none of us really are. We proceeded to watch you tube videos of our favorite TLC videos and random 80's videos. The night ended in a blur with everyone passing out at the pad, which meant we all made delicious pancakes with bananas and chocolate chips in the morning. We used the rest of the whole milk which we all credit as to why the pancakes were all soo delicious. Thanks everyone who was at this event, it was super fun and you were all great guests! Oh and thanks peter to letting us use your apartment and bringing us all together!

I cant wait for the next one, or even just getting back into the kitchen and cooking.

The only excuse to go to Ikea, PORTO'S!!!

Well I'm a little bit late posting my weekend blog, so we are gonna do it all right now!! Get ready and buckle up kiddos cause here was my weekend adventure!! So as we all know my cleanse was on the way out, (now its officially over!). So with this, I was allowed to enter the world of food again! And boy did I, with a possible end of the cleanse coming a bit too soon. It all started with a visit to Ikea. Yes Ikea!! It was so fun walking around the showroom, dragging my poor little Petie around looking at all the different views of how my future apartment could look like. But I unfortunately was not there for me, I was there for Peter and his apartment. The boy definitely has lived in his apt since October and still has not been to Ikea. So how do I finally get him to drive out to Burbank, with the promise of a delicious meal of course! And no it wasn't the Swedish meatballs in the Ikea cafeteria. It was Porto's, a recommendation I got the night before from a forgettable meal I dont even want to think about/or even write about. Anyways, these lovely friends/foodies told me to go to Porto's since I would be going to Ikea. Porto's I asked, what is it? Well its a cuban deli/bakery!!! Cuban sandwiches I thought? mmm it reminded me instantly of my trip to El Conchito in Silver Lake.....mmm do I love cuban sandwiches, oh the ham!! The pig is literally one of the most delicous animals ever. And NO I DONT WANT TO HEAR ANYTHING NEGATIVE ABOUT IT YOU PIG HATERS!!! (people think that their views of the pig are implanted on the person when you eat it, and then there are those people that cant eat it due to their religious views, which I totally accept but Im glad Im not them). So after the trip to Ikea, we drive to Porto's on Magnolia. On the way we see this plume of smoke in the distance. As we drive closer, we see its coming from an outside grill, where there is carne asada, chicken and who knows what else. We look at each other and think about throwing the plans and stopping here instead. But no, its Porto's time and we cannot be taken off course.

So we park, we en
ter and its big with ALOT of people inside. Peter gets scared. I say don't worry the lines move fast. And it did. In due time we got to order. I had the Cuban Sandwich which was Ham, roasted pork, and Swiss cheese served with mayonnaise, mustard, and pickles on Cuban bread). Peter ordered the Roasted Pork Sandwich (Pan con Lechon) which was Oven roasted pork served with special Spanish garlic dressing (Mojo) on Cuban bread. We also HAD to get the Potato Balls (which my foodie friend suggested we HAD to try). The Potato balls consisted of mashed potato's with beef and spices inside, which peter compared to a Kanishce, which I unfortunately have no idea what that is so I just said okay. At the last minute I snuck in a meat pie, it looked delicious in its flaky puffy dough crust.

So we ordered, sat down and waited. Luckily we got to start eating right away with our appetizers, our potato balls and the meat pie, MEAT PIE!! So let me start explaining the potato ball. Literally mashed potato's surrounding meat filling and then lightly fried. These were gooooood. Mmmmm. Peter and I each got our own, but had to share the meat pie. The meat pie had the same meat filling but instead of being fried with mashed potatoes it was backed in a delicious puffy crust. I actually liked this MUCH MORE than the fried potato ball. But this is due to my history with my mothers witch's pockets (apples wrapped in a puff pastry dough). So when I see puff pastry, my heart literally melts. And boy oh boy did it melt. And boy oh boy am I still annoyed I had to share it. (I DONT LIKE TO SHARE, GET OVER IT!)

Finally we got our sandwiches, my Cubano was delicious. It was not as pressed as I expected or as warm as I hoped, but none the less it was still yum yum yum. What I really enjoyed about the cubaon was the crisp pickle that I had with every bite. The conversion of the sweet bread, salty pork and sour crunchy pickle was just overall a great combo. Oh did you know that the sandwiches come with fried plantain chips!!!! The Pan con Lechon was tasty too. The pork was like a pulled pork, dry, with spices. The difference between the sandwiches were great even though they were both ham based. I mean this is why I love the pig, there are just so many different things you can do with it and yet always (well usually) tastes great!

Unfortunately I was not able to taste any of the sweets, due to the cleanse, I was still not eating sugar, though I totally cheated eating bread, but shhhhhhh.

LAist.com wrote a great article on my favorite line, the red line

Even though I have started my own blog, it only came to fruition due to my obsession reading other LA based blogs.  LAist.com just published a blog about the Metro Red Line and cheap eats at every stop.  I have only been to a few like the Grand Central Market downtown where I had delicious papusa's and horchata's mmmm.  The whole mess of the GCM is very fun and busy, and if you have never been you need to go.  Just at least to experience a great LA landmark and get some tasty treats too!  
Other stops I have been to on the list are Daikokuya where they have unbelievable ramen.  The story goes my bf and I took the redline down there, and then did a ten min walk to the ramen house.  There was a line which was fine, so we went to a bar down the street and the drinking began!  We walked down its "alley" and to the bar we sat.  After a round of my fav, gin and tonic, we went back to the ramen house and it was perfect timing! We sat down within 5 minutes.  We then ordered the delicious ramen with a pitcher of beer. Mmmmmm the memories of that meal.  I bet there are other ramen houses that are just as good around, and better ones in san gabriel and arcadia, but boy o boy was this one yummy!

So back to the red line.  The suggestions that I need to try are Philadelphia sandwhiches (mmm cheesy steaky goodness), Kowloom Dimsum because i just looove little dumplings! 

My addition: At the Hollywood and western stop, get out and go to Chuan Chim, literally 6 dollars each plate for good quality taste!  I went there with about 10 friends and we were all happily stuffed, ordered whatever we wanted and by the end the check was ridiculously cheap. We also all brought some wine (no corkage fee!!) and they brought us only 5 "glasses" because its all they had (oops for us being drunkards) and the rest used plastic cafeteria cups!! woohooo totally made the night!  Anyways, this is a must go in these hard times we are in.

Oldy but Goody Matsuhisa

Mmmm protien. My first day back into the life of meat, I started off with fish. I didn't want to get myself too overwhelmed. To celebrate, my awesome bf took me to Matsuhisa on La Cienega. It was not the first time I have been here, but boy was it yummy! We had a 9:00 reservation and arrived on time, only to wait ten minutes for the party in our seats to leave. I was hangry (hungry which causes anger) at this point so I was NOT amused. Once we were seated we went over the menu and waited for the waiter to bring us the specials board. Once he came over to take our order, I was like and what are the specials....he gave me this look like "oh yea oops." He is a waiter, i was shocked that he forgot his job that I cannot see a tiny board across the room, yes bring it over to me now please, and he did. I went over the specials and overall not that appealing. But we did order the lobster with guacamole. From the normal menu we ordered the taradito, tuna takaki with garlic, kampachi and spanish makarel sushi.

The tuna takaki garlic thing arrived first. It was displayed in a beautiful lotus flower shape and was quite delicious. Then we got the taradito. It was i think a white fish with black salt, cilantro and a dot of spicyness on it in a citrus sauce. This was soooooooo good. I mean it was literally a party in my mouth. It is a Peruvian influenced dish and I loved every second of it. I wish I was eating it right now. Then we got the lobster with guacamole. Was that interesting. First off everything was hot, including the guac which I was not expecting. But the only reason why I ordered it was because I have an obsession with lobster and avocados. The first bite was intriguing, due to the guac being warm, but then I warmed up to it. I realized all the flavors were nice together, creamy guac with the creamy crunchy tail of the lobster. The warmth I also enjoyed. I basically ended up licking this plate clean with the cauliflower and spinach that it came with. After that we got the sushi which was basically whatever, But the Kampachi was really good. We were still hungry (well I was) and we got some salmon sushi and the black cod miso because I thought we ordered it but we didnt yet. That was sooo good. The fish was creamy oily and sweet from the miso. I have had this dish before at other places and it is just a classically good combo and it was done right here tonight. No need for dessert, because the sweetness of the miso with the cod was enough for me. Actually I am lying, I am still on my cleanse so I can't have sugar yet so this is the real reason. But overall it was just as satisfying as the chocolate cake think I saw (well not really Im lying again, but this is what I have to think to prevent myself from going crazy with jealousy)

overall matsuhisa is still a great nobu restaurant and the bill I was not shocked at either which was a pleasant surprise. I will thank my cleanse again for not letting me drink so thats why the bill was cheaper than expected.

let me say, by the time we left, I had quite a fill of celebrity sightings, so if you are into that then that would be fun, i guess. But it was fun to see Richard Bronson right at the table next to me.

And in the end I'll still leave Matsuhisa to those special night dinners, unlike most of the clientele there. And stick to the dishes and not so much the sushi.

ps, sorry for no pics: left the camera at home...I promise Ill have some for my future adventures.

New Year, New President, New Food

Hi all, after reading blog after blog about food in LA, I have decided to create my own. Food is defiantly my favorite past time. Food, food, food. It is all I think about, all I read about, all i love. So now I decided I want to share my love of LA and food and bring it together for you and me. Basically my own little black notebook of my conquests, meaning meals. I plan on sharing my adventures into LA and hopefully some delicious home cooked meals.

I started this year off doing my first cleanse. With today being the first day that I am back on the meat train, I have almost reached the end. During these trying two and a half weeks, I have really come to understand that food is an amazing part of my life. Without it, meaning the ability to enjoy LA and all of its eclectic glory, I have really come to understand what a great and diverse city we live in and how I cannot wait to see how much of it I can experience in 2009. So buckle up and lets see what I get myself into!!
My search for only the best food, drinks and recipes.Another blog about my adventures in Los Angeles. Follow me in my crazy world of blogging. Only the future knows what it holds...
