My new favorite street snack. Make your own by….CUTTING A FUCKING MANGO AND PUTTING CAYENNE PEPPER ON IT. Jesus do I have to tell you guys everything??
Seriously. If you go to NYC and go to one of those giant, “hip” sushi places, you make me sad. Not mad. Just sad.
I’ve been known to want to go to those big places from time to time….mainly Matsuri, but seriously…there is nothing. like. Blue Ribbon on Sullivan between Prince and Spring.
When I am doing my diet bullshit (and oh, how it is bullshit) sushi is the ONLY thing I find that will satisfy me. Canned tuna with avocado? Fuck off. Hardboiled egg with salt and pepper? Go to hell. A beautiful slice of tuna sashimi with wasabi and ginger? Kiss me.
Here are my 2 personal recommendations, if you ever make it out to Blue Ribbon. These 2 little starters will fill you right up and satisfy you in every way. Except sexually. You might need a partner for that one:
SO fresh and light and salty and wonderful. Take a bit of the yuzu pepper puree (in the cucumber) onto your chopsticks and grab the amberjack sashimi. This is heaven. Spicy and salty.
I really live for this, to the point where I can actually taste it just by thinking of it. Is that gross? It is, isn’t it? Really light and delicious and FILLING, which is really important to me. You get every flavor you crave (for me, it’s salty and sweet mixed together) and yet you don’t leave the restaurant mad at yourself. Love.

Pssst. Is anyone still here?
Seriously. What just happened? Did I suddenly get a life or what?! I have been so terribly neglectful!
I had kind of a crazy week in Miami debuting my…ahem…new swimsuit collaboration (i refuse to be the kind of person who over-promotes things though, seriously) and now I am just keeping busy with “different projects”. God how fucking lame and pretentious does that sound? But really. I think life is coming together lately. Still have no idea what the hell Im doing, but it’s nice to be able to brainstorm and make the decisions for once.
Anyhoo….I really did like seeing that some of you guys were literally like, “bitch, get back in the kitchen!” or would just simply share photos of some of the things you made from my blog. Although I am STILL waiting for some of you to post photos from the fried corn recipe. YOU HAVE TO MAKE IT AND TAKE PHOTOS AND EAT IT BECAUSE I CANNOT!
I’ll be home for the next month or so…in buckle-down mode for a big swim shoot end of August…I’m sure you can guess what it is but I’m always silenced when it comes to dropping the name.
What does this mean? Well a lot of blogging, since I tend to blog more when I am at home, in bed, alone, hungry, and sad. But also a lot of random blogging that may not be about food at all. I hope you can deal! Food isn’t going to be as fun for the month of August, which makes me just sick, honestly…
The good news is that….hmmm what is the good news here….i dunno….the good news is that I missed you guys and I kind of have a nice, random backup of photos and meals to share. Not many recipes, as I haven’t been “surfing the net” (is that what the kids say?) for a while, but I’ll try to be more on top of my game now.
I MISSED YOU DID YOU MISS ME! (CIRCLE YES / NO)
