Kimchi Potato Hash with Bacon

I feel like I should call this post the Kimchi Diaries, because I’m so in love with the stuff right now. That’s the beauty and the curse of discovering something new. You explore all the possibilities, and hope that you don’t tire of it! So far that hasn’t happened to me because I just discovered kimchi potato…

Friday Things

Today’s pic is from the Kusama’s Infinity Mirrors exhibit at the Hirshhorn Museum.   Although entrance to the museum is free (thanks Smithsonian!), you still needed to reserve timed passes.  Passes were only available online and sold out within 3 minutes of their release.  It took me two weeks, but we finally made it.  In addition to…

The publisher’s assistant went on vacation this week, so I…

Luckily my boyfriend supports my love of burgers because he drove me to Melt Gourmet Cheeseburgers in Leesburg which was a 50-minute scenic drive away…

Tartfilette

Have I ever mentioned my love for bacon and cheese?  It runs very, very deep, so you could imagine how my eyes widened when I saw this recipe for a tartfilette. Bacon, cheese, potatoes and white wine? Sign me up! The French really know how to blend simple ingredients together and make them wonderful.  The…
