I'd like an olive oil IV drip, thanks...

and maybe one for Sriracha hot sauce. And Diet Coke. Ok, scratch that last request, since I am trying to wean myself off of it :-/. Speaking of olive oil, here are two more Italian inspired dishes, heavy on the oil! One is grilled, marinated eggplant with pine nuts, and the other is something new. Something I RARELY make! Fish :-D!! They're sardines. I seem to be somewhat obsessed with making sardines, and I don't know why. I don't eat them much anymore, but sometimes, when I was little, gramps would open a can of them, add soy sauce, a side of rice, and I would tuck in, very happily. The little bones never bothered me...but then, I have been known to eat shrimp, shell and all, including the heads (my favorite part!). Try not to gag!! Actually, I have gagged before, on a shrimp head. You know those sharp, pointy things that stick out of it's head? It harpooned me in the roof of the mouth. There was a bit of blood, and a shitload of pain!!


  1. Felicidades por tu trabajo, me encanta.

    Besos,. Narán

  6. Thank you Mari, Cris, and Mariarita :-)!!

  7. I just LOVE your work; it's so real and delicious-looking.. :) But of course you did get that fellow-status for a very good reason.
    The best compliment that I can give you is that with miniaturefood as good as yours, I find myself often thinking: 'well that's very delicious looking food, although of course it's mostly a case of slicing/chopping the vegetable(s) and/or grilling it or the fish, add sauce or something etc'... As if you were a chef presenting a prepared (real) meal. Knowing, but totally forgetting (being confused by the realism) that the vegetable or fish or whatever is miniature & needs to be MADE all the way and every single detail is there because you made it there..... that's how real it looks to me
