Friends with Benedicts

The title alone of this post is worthy of the post itself. So I’ll cut to the chase. I have lots of friends. But there are only certain ones with whom I’d share ‘Benedicts.’ Because Benedicts fall into the category of Very. Special. Friends. Friends with whom you can share Very. Personal. Food.

Scrambled eggs

Sayonara Stove!…Scrambled Eggs with Scallions and Cheese

Well isn’t this just my luck? The one time I step foot in Los Angeles is when they decide to shut down the 405 -only the largest highway system in the entire universe- for a little ‘weekend construction.’ My timing couldn’t be better. In what has already been coined “Carmaggedon 2011” I am reminded of […]
