Miss Ginsu: About/Bio


It's new! It's tasty! Go look!

I know what you're thinking. You're thinking, "Boy, the world could really use another website. There's just not enough out there right now, and I'm feeling unfulfilled."

Okay, so maybe you're not thinking that. And maybe the world doesn't really need another website.

But this isn't just any new website. This is a sensory explosion of beauty, passion and color wrapped up in an efficient 5-7-5 line structure. Lush photos. Tasty haiku. And a new post every week. What's not to like?

Haiku Lunchbox

It's Haiku Lunchbox, and you should go over there right now and add it to your RSS or Google Reader or bookmarks or whathave you so you don't miss out on the tastiness to come.

Guaranteed delight or your money back.

Meanwhile, this site will be featuring some tasty recipe stuff this week, including a high-stakes barbecue sauce throwdown. Excitement... stay tuned!

I found this in my kitchen recently and was moved to snap a shot. It's kind of creepy and lovely at the same time, don't you think?

Post a note in the comments if you have a guess about what it is.

Mowing the Kiwifruit


Yes... I realize I've been a negligent blogger. There have been technical issues.

I'll be chewing on the web again next week — but in the meantime you must-must-must go see this ever-so-cute French foodporn site.

Tiny people excavating watermelon seeds!

Itty-bitty astronauts exploring the rocky surface of a crème brulée!

Lilliputian workers mowing the kiwifruits! Swoon!

Gratuitous Frisee Action

No legitimate reason for this post. I just love looking at frisee.

It's a silly, fuzzy muppet in a world of staid veggies like endive, arugula and romaine, and its mere existence makes me happy.
