More Home Cooking

There are probably only two things in the world that I think I’m truly good at. First is sleeping. Second is eating. But you can’t just always eat out or else you’ll go broke and/or get super rotund. Thus, I frequently cook my own meals and here are just a couple dishes that I’ve made recently!

Nah just normal beef patties from Trader Joe’sDSC04322DSC04341Probably one of my favorite dishes to cook – braised chicken wings. Pretty simple steps: 1. Heat up olive oil in pan and brown both sides of wings 2. Pour 1/4 cup soy sauce and flip the wings to make sure both sides get coated 3. Add 2 cups water 4. Add sriracha sauce to add a little kick to the wings 5. Put on light boil for 40 minutesDSC04345DSC04330 Homemade mochi! Just kidding, these were store bought but they’re so beautiful aren’t they?

Brunch: 44 & X

What’s better for a lazy Sunday morning than greasy food dressed up in a disarmingly appetizing presentation? Luckily, we found a cute place without a long wait, reasonable prices, and slightly cramped quarters (last night’s gossip from strangers totally satisfying the voyeur in us). Best part: great lighting for pictures!

Name: 44 & X
Address: 44th and 10th Avenue, New York, NY
Price: ~$15 / person
Hours: Brunch Sat-Sun 11:30am to 3pm
Wait / Reservations: Only losers make reservations for brunch, wait was 15 minutes for busy morning

pancakes and sausage and lots of maple syrup

Why you need at least two people for a satisfying brunch…because then you can sample all four of the brunchy staples – pancakes, eggs, sausage, bacon.

scrambled eggs and bacon

“Can I eat now?”

mini muffins

These muffins were actually the best part

Verdict: probably better places in brunch-crazy NYC, but this place gets the job done swiftly and painlessly
