Roasted Bone Marrow

While we were in Ithaca earlier this month, we ate pretty lavishly. And while we were eating lavishly, I was reminiscing with my sister about my time at Cornell, when I was so poor that I debated with myself whether I should eat my whole lunch (because I was still kind of hungry) or try to hold back so I could eat the leftovers as my dinner and save some money. It's funny thinking about it now, but when I was in school, eating on a budget was a real struggle because I'm a big fatso.

Had I known about marrow bones back then, I might've fared a little better. It's amazing how cheap they are considering that they're so delicious; the cheap to delicious ratio is zero. Plus, they are incredibly simple to whip up. It's totally something I could have easily done in between studying and partying while I was in school.

Braised Potato Side Dish

Because of my sister's recently discovered potato allergy, I haven't been making them much lately. However, on a recent trip to Trader Joe's, we found a little bag of the cutest tiny baby potatoes and I had to get them.

I decided to make a Korean-style side dish with them. I shared a version of this dish a few years ago but have since updated the recipe.
1 lb. baby potatoes
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 tablespoons hot pepper flakes
1 tablespoon soy sauce
¼ teaspoon sesame oil
2 tablespoons golden syrup
1 jalapeno, sliced
½ teaspoon sesame seeds

48 Hours in Ithaca: Summertime Eats

A couple of weekends ago, my family drove up to Ithaca. We hadn't been up in a couple of years and we took it as an opportunity to have a little mini break with our dog.

Ithaca is pretty rural but it's got some really delicious food.
We did a lot of al fresco dining, because NY State law does not allow dogs into dining establishments (makes sense) and we also did takeout a few times. I'm sharing three of my favorite places today but if you're looking for more dining choices, check out my Big Red List on Yelp. And for all of the fun activities we did, you can check out my travel blog.
