A Little About Me

New York, New York
As a newly married woman, it has become my mission in life to learn how to cook. Gone are the days of picking up sushi and ordering curries. In order to jump-start my education, I enrolled in the Institute of Culinary Education's Fine Cooking I course where I learned the basics, from roasting to boiling to mousse-making (ok, maybe not that basic)! I've attempted to replicate some recipes - somewhat successfully- and create a few of my own. This blog is for friends and foodies and is intended to document my cooking adventures (and occasional fiascoes). Enjoy the pictures and bon appetite!

Chimichurri; My Favorite Steak Topper

There's nothing my husband enjoys more in this world than my breath after I've consumed a bunch of raw garlic and onions. One of my favorite breath-strengthening items has to be chimichurri, a green sauce originally from Argentina used for grilling meats. I love to spread the stuff all over my steak, drenching every bite in fresh herb goodness.

1 cup fresh parsley
1 cup fresh cilantro
4-5 garlic cloves
2 tbsp chopped onion
1/2 cup olive oil
3 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 tbsp lime juice
salt and red pepper flakes to taste

For a wonderful steak topper, combine all the above ingredients in a food processor and pulse till smooth!
