Vegetable “Pie”

1 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil

2 cloves crushed garlic

1 white onion

2 pieces of zucchini

2 pieces of yellow squash

3 carrots, peeled

1 cup vegetable stock

1/2 -1 cup flour

Pinch of salt and pepper

Serves 4

Chop all vegetables. Add oil to a pan on a medium-low heat and add garlic and onion. Once onions begin to appear translucent (about 5 minutes), add the remaining vegetables and ¼ cup vegetable stock. Gradually add more vegetable stock and flour over the next 20 minutes or so, folding the flour into the mixture. Let vegetables sit in pan for about 20 minutes, add salt and pepper and serve.


4 3x3 inch squares of phyllo, 7 sheets each

1-2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil

2 tbsp butter, melted

1 egg

Serves 4

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a baking sheet with oil. Cut phyllo into 3x3 inch squares. Have melted butter and whisked egg ready in two separate bowls. Lay a single sheet of phyllo onto baking sheet, top with melted butter and repeat until 7 or so sheets have been used. Brush egg on top of the finished square and repeat until 4 squares have been made. Place baking sheet in the oven for 15-18 minutes and use squares to top pie.


1 pound Yukon gold potatoes, peeled

1 tbsp. butter

1 tpsp. cream

1-2 tbsp. milk

1 tsp rosemary, finely chopped

1 tsp salt and pepper

Serves 4

Chop Yukon gold potatoes and add them to a boiling pot of water. Reduce heat and let sit until potatoes become soft (25-30 minutes). Transfer potatoes into a serving bowl and add butter, cream, milk, rosemary, salt and pepper and mash.

Tonight for dinner I went to Ping Pong (I promise I also go to other restaurants and will be blogging about them!) because my friends and I needed to get out of the house, and we wanted to take advantage of their Dim Sum Happy Hour. We ordered a lot of food. A LOT.
Steamed Crabmeat and Prawn Dumpling

Crispy Hoi Sin Duck Spring Roll x2 and Chicken and Black Pepper Spring Roll x2

Chicken Puff x2 (a DEFINITE crowd pleaser if you're going out with picky eaters!)

Griddled Spinach and Mushroom Dumpling

Dishes not pictured include the Vegetable Wonton Soup, Pork Puff (x2), Traditional Sticky Rice, Vegetable Bun (x2), Char Sui Bun, Crispy Asparagus (x2) and Spicy Pork Dumpling. I love tapas-style eating because it allows you to relax and enjoy the company instead of just worrying about when the food will come. The meal unravels much more organically this way and you can also be sure that your food is coming out as it's ready!

Tomorrow I am facing the snow yet again to make my way to Delaware where my boyfriend, Will, goes to school. Hopefully the snow will be plowed up there so I can share another restaurant with you!

With health,
