Spicy Chipotle Marinade || Chipotle Baked Chicken

Confession: I have a raging girl-crush on Chrissy Teigen, Sports Illustrated Supermodel and John Legends other half.  Do yourself a favor and follow her on twitter if you aren’t already, because she is absolutely hilarious.  The icing on the cake?  Chrissy is having a fling with Taco Bell (true story) and she runs her own food blog called So Delushious!  This super versatile spicy chipotle marinade is her blogs top recipe and she writes,

Ratatouille a la Remy (Confit Byaldi by Thomas Keller)

Ratatouille! Before I dive into the lists of new recipes I’m dying to try, I wanted to transfer over the ‘Ratatouille a la Remy’ I made almost two years ago from my tumblr.

Thomas Kellers ‘byaldi’ variation for ‘The French Laundry Cookbook” features vegetables in thin slices, adds a piperade (tomato & bellpeper sauce) at the bottom, a vinaigrette at the top, and serves the dish by fanning the vegetables out accordion-style. Thomas Keller, that fancy guy.

New York, New York in 3 Days

I finally made it to New York. I admit that despite being one of the top cities in the world, New York was never at the top of my travel list. Shows like Friends, Gossip Girl, and How I Met Your Mother may have romanticized the city for me for years, but it wasn’t until one of my best friends moved there after college that I knew I had to make a trip. On that note– everyone please congratulate Soohee Cho on admissions to Parsons The New School for Design for her masters in design studies!!! While I would love to give you an in-depth and well-rounded shopping, dining and entertainment guide to the city… I offer you instead this short and sweet, “How to experience NY in 3 days.”
