Brooklyn Shrimp Salad 600x400 Brooklyn ShrimpThis recipe is named after my least favourite borough of New York City: Brooklyn! It may be the home of Lil’ Kim, but I just can’t bring myself to move there. I avoid it as much as I can. But for some reason, all the cool, good-looking smokers have inhabited it.

I recently went to the land of retired doormen, elevator men and porters: Puerto Rico! Nothing like what I had expected. Growing up, the only Puerto Ricans I knew were either in gangs, worked in my building or came out of hiding on a random Sunday in June for a parade. OK, OK… not all of them, but enough for me to make a statement like that without worrying about a serious challenge. It is one of the most absolutely beautiful and tranquil places I have ever been.

Chicken Milanese My Social Chef 600x400 Chicken MilaneseAs you get older, you make certain upgrades in your life. You go from a twin bed to a full/queen, a Swatch watch to a Rolex, Aqua Net to Consort and Chicken Parmesan to Chicken Milanese. This is just the evolution of becoming an adult.

Lamb Meatballs 600x450 Lamb Meatball with Yogurt SauceGrowing up my mother would buy any meat that was on sale and call it beef. Venison, lamb, buffalo were all turned into roast beef, meatballs and hamburgers. She had quite an imagination for such a frugal lady. It all came to an end one night when my dad wanted steak for dinner. She swore on all her daughters (not me) that it was beef, but my dad knew better. He packed her bags and threw her ass out of the house.

Gay Steak?

Gay Steak 600x450 Gay Steak?

There are two types of people that go to steak houses; douche bags and old sluts. Women come to steak houses in packs like wolves and want to show how strong and independent they are. In reality they’re just horny and want to be noticed. The men are there to act like total cavemen; laughing really loudly, eating, grunting and drinking like pigs. It’s almost like a gay club minus the disco balls, crystal meth and glitter.

I had the chance to visit the great country of England a couple of weeks ago.  I went to the home of The Beatles, Austin Powers and Fluoride free water to visit some friends. I had a blast, but couldn’t find a dirty martini anywhere. And they call this place civilized?

Guys are absolutely fat pigs. They will eat you out of house and home, especially if their significant others aren’t around to tell them to “calm down” while they’re shoveling food into their mouths.  So significant others, please shut the fuck up, the entire world doesn’t need to know your man over eats and you berating him in public will not magically stop him.

Its been snowing a lot in New York and the last thing I want to do is go outside. I feel like a bear that should be hibernating. I just want to stay home, eat something comforting and watch Robin Byrd all day.
