Portabello Panini

I finally got to try out a portabello mushroom recipe by Ellie Krieger. Instead of bread, I had one giant mushroom cut in half, sprinkled some crumbled gorgonzola (smelly but delicious)on one side, and tweaked the recipe a bit by adding some garlic pesto.
Satisfying yet filling. It’s an easy meal that I plan to make again!

Pumpkin Treats

I love all the pumpkin treats that popped up for Halloween, but I think it was all meant for Thanksgiving--in honor of the Pumpkin Pie. As long as the pumpkin items are available, I'm going to be eating them!


Pumpkin Bagel & Schmear

Einstein Brothers-Pumpkin Bagel & Shmear

Breakfast at Einstein's is the best you can get on "the drag" in Austin. If only it were a 24-hour joint like competitor Kerbey Lane, but I guess anyone who wants some yummy bfast has to get up early--it closes at 4 pm everyday. The breakfast and lunch items are available at all times I believe. The past weekend, I woke up really late but still had time for a breakfast treat:. I couldn't resist the pumpkin offerings. The Pumpkin Poppers caught my eye once I entered, but I got distracted by the Pumpkin Bagel & Schmear.

Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino
from Starbucks

I pass by delicious coffee smells from Starbucks many a time during the week, but I don't usually buy myself a cup. It's like a luxury to buy coffee---so I feel like an addict recently, in October and anticipate visiting this month as well, just to buy a Pumpkin Spice Frappuccino.

Do Chefs Hate Vegetarians?

On episode 10 of "Top Chef," the chefs prepare dishes in Craft Steak, Judge/Chef Tom Colicchio's restaurant, which looks like it's all about indulging in heavy meats. Before the chefs start cooking, the twist is revealed...

Veggie Heaven: Sweet Bun

Sweet Buns

When I go to Veggie Heaven, I order a sweet bun. Little did I know that it would lead to a hunt for some sweet bun specifics.
