Italian Porcini Pasta with Meatballs

I am not a big fan of Italian food. Maybe it’s because almost everything has tomato sauce. But over the weekend I did buy some pasta, Porcini mushroom tomato sauce, and ground beef to make meatballs. I have not had some home made Italian food in a while so why not eh? It was a quick and yummy meal. I seasoned the meatballs with chopped onion, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper. Simple but tasty. I baked them for 25 minutes or until they were brown and most of the fat came out. After that, simmered them in the remaining…

I remember the first time I was served oatmeal in a carton coffee cup. Not conventional but it made your fellow New Yorker happier and way more productive.

Sweet December Holidays

There’s nothing better than the winter holidays and festivities. My favorite part are the decorations and lights that are put up everywhere. Oh and the holiday markets are the best!

They’re like mazes but no worries you won’t get lost.   Yesterday we went to Bergdorf Goodman to see the holiday window displays; it’s an absolute must to see if you’re visiting NYC in the winter. This year, Bergdorf Goodman’s theme is sweets. The windows were filled with cotton…
