Banana Dessert!

One of my favorite and quick desserts to make. Lightly fry 1 banana in Olive or Coconut Oil. Place the bananas on top of your favorite ice cream. I had some leftover walnuts and syrup that I just drizzled over. Be creative and add your favorite toppings,YUM!!!!!!!

Happy Mother's Day!!!! MOLOS RESTAURANT

For Mother's Day I wanted to take my mom out to eat something good and different. Molos Restaurant is a high end Greek restaurant that sits on the water overlooking NYC in Weehawken. The views were amazing and the food was so good, I was stuffed and tipsy when we left. 

My cocktail called burnt orange was very very good, because it was very very strong. 

My mom orders the Lamb Shank with tomato herb orzo and I ordered the Snapper Filet which had potatoes, feta cheese and tomatos on the bottom (which made it very filing). I tasted my mothers lamb and it was so delicious, the meat was so tender it was falling off the bone. 

For our appetizer we both orders stuff shrimp with Maryland Crabmeat, it was scrumptious! 

For dessert my mom had the honey walnut cake with gelato and fruit! The Gelato was my favorite, it tasted like cream cheese ice cream. I literally had a small bite of the cake and fruit because I was so stuffed from my meal. 

Overall Molo's was great, expensive but I would definitely go again and I would recommend anyone looking for a delicious Greek cuisine

Snack: Cheese Spread

I hadn't seen my BFF in a long time so I wanted to make us a nice spread with some wine. I got grapes, crackers, cheese, turkey and hummus. Everything was bought from Trader Joes. P.S. I'm totally obsessed with Trader Joes Fig and Olive Crackers, they are just addictive, delicious and they go with anything. 

Restaurant: Lips Drag Queen Show

Dessert: Banana Dumplings

I'm obsessed with bananas! This day I saw a similar recipe for banana spring rolls. I did not have the spring roll paper so I opted to make dumplings instead. I just put sliced bananas, cinnamon and a dash of sugar inside these small square dough sheets, fry until brown on both sides, then serve with ice cream! So so good!!!!!!

Dinner: Chicken Pasta and Veggies

Had s taste for spaghetti, but wanted protein and veggies too. I made sort of a chicken parm mix (without the cheese) and steamed some fresh Brussels yummy and quick! 

Thai: Duck Pad Thai

Decided to try a new spot near Penn Station. I hadn't had Duck in a very long time, decides to treat myself and it was yummy! 

Pizza: Two Boots!

Takeout: It's Greek to me

Had an audition near wall street and stumbled upon a Greek takeout place called GRK, it was packed! So I guessed the food must be good. The Gyro was so Delicius and everything in it tastes so fresh, I can't wait to go back 

Breakfast: Cream of Wheat

Cream of Wheat is so yummy and filling. I add fruits, cinnamon, honey to give it an extra boost.

Dinner: Eggplant Parmesan and Spaghetti

Eggplant and Chicken Parm are two of my favorite Italian dishes to cook. I slice the Eggplant and sprinkle with a little salt to take out the bitterness. I then dip in egg and breadcrumb then fry in olive oil. I serve with spaghetti and sauce, it's delicious!!!!!

Dinner: A Kim Creation

This is such a traditional clean eating meal with a twist. I sautéed 4 small chicken breast and 3 shrimp and also sautéed fresh asparagus in garlic and soy sauce. When both were done I laid them on top of a bed of brown rice and drizzled a little bit of sweet chili sauce onto the chicken and shrimp, YUMMY!!! This was so good, I'll be adding sweet chili sauce to more of my food. 

Restaurant Find: Tipsy Parson

Located in Chelsea in NYC, this spot was selected for me and my close group of friends annual NYE Dinner. Ambiance and atmosphere are nice, it's small but cozy. I enjoyed the fried green tomatoes appetizer (not shown) even though I have had better and can make better, the Jhudh puppies were ok, I've had better. I truly loved the habanero buttermilk biscuit appetizer. This buttermilk biscuit is made with habanero peppers, but it's so subtle and it comes with a spicy strawberry jam, yes spicy! I loved the pairing of flavors, such a great idea to create a biscuit like this. the macaroni n cheese was delicious and the hot buttered rum drink too (not pictured). I didn't really enjoy my entree which was catfish with greens. First off, the piece of catfish was so small and it was placed on a huge bed of greens???!! I feel the piece of catfish should have been bigger with maybe less greens, if not make the entree focused on greens...just my opinion. The greens had a pickly relish taste I was not feeling either. My friend had chicken and waffles and it was ok...seems like appetizers and desserts here are the best things to eat

Restaurant Find: Tokyo Buffet

Located in Secaucus, NJ in Harmon Meadow, this Japanese restaurant has a buffet on one side and a sit down hibachi dinner section on the other side. Hibachi is my favorite food. With Hibachi you get the traditional clear soup, salad with ginger dressing and your meal. My BFF and I ordered two sushi rolls to go with our meal, overall it was delicious and I hadn't been to a hibachi sit down dinner in a few years so it was a very nice and fun dinner. 

Restaurant Find: Hi So Thai

Decided to try out a Thai place that I've seen in my neighborhood for years. As much as I love Thai I never ordered or dined in this particular Thai place. Anyway I had a desperate taste for Thai one day  and looked this Thai place up online and the reviews were all amazing, literally. We ordered Chicken Pad Thai, Spicy Drunk Man Noodles, Spring rolls and Shrimp Wraps. I must say the food was truly delicious and the delivery was quick, I was happy overall and will definitely order from this place again. 

Dinner: A Kim Pasta Creation

I was hungry and wanted something light and quick. I just boiled some noodles, sautéed a chicken breast with a handful of raw spinach. I then added them on top of the cooked noodles. To add an extra pop, I sprinkled some Parmesan cheese on was a yummy meal. On the spot creations can be delicious too! 

Restaurant Find: Hibachi Takeout

One thing I love about malls is the food court, I love getting Japanese takeout when I'm at the mall. This delicious combo is chicken teriyaki with lo mein noodles and steamed veggies (cabbage & broccoli) talk about yummy! It took me two days to finish this meal
