- cut up some ginger and place in a pot with water
- bring to a boil, and then let simmer for as long as you like (i do half an hour so its extra strong)
- add honey
This is great for when you are sick and have a sore throat.
Cook some chicken however you want. Get some canned artichoke hearts. Chop up some fresh garlic and fresh basil leaves. Half some little cherry tomatoes. Sautee with a healthy amount of olive oil to your liking while boiling your pasta. I used some awesome basil infused homemade pasta that my mommy bought me at a farmers market.
Mix it all together- perhaps add a little parmesan cheese and garnish with a little more fresh basil.
Mmmmmm epic nom.
For those of you lucky enough to be our in-real-life pals, tomorrow is Friendsgiving dinner at Epic Noms South HQ. Classy meatloaf, mashed rutabagas, carrot cupcakes, and almond cookies already whipped up in preparation for the noming event of 2009. Look forward to some awesome posts in the next few days!
So, when I was in spain, my host mom used to make me “Arroz a la cubana”. Essentially it was rice, tomato sauce and a fried egg. I used quinoa instead of rice and replaced the sauce with an updated version of my tomato vegetable soup(adding black eyed peas and worcestershire). We stuck with the fried egg. Make sure it is a little gooey for epic noms.
It’s possible to make your own crème fraîche by adding cultured buttermilk or sour cream to heavy cream and letting it sit for a day at room temperature. We didn’t have a day, so this is store bought stuff. It goes well with strawberries and dark sugar (turbinado here).
In a large bowl combine: half of a head of Romaine lettuce (cut up), 1 sliced cucumber, 1 grated carrot, quartered cherry tomatoes, shredded Parmesan cheese.
In a tiny bowl combine: 1-part red wine vinegar (or balsamic vinegar) & 2-parts olive oil, salt, pepper, tiny bit of oregano, pressed garlic. Stir up with a fork until the two liquids combine well.
Pour the dressing into bowl of stuff. Mix! Have your friend Nick take a photo of it. Eat. All. Of. It.
