Recipe Box: Amanda Bynes’ Murder My Tuna Pasta Salad

9 Apr

FOX News reports: During the past month, the “Hairspray” star has posted multiple pictures of herself in everything from blonde wigs to blue lipstick, and made a barrage of perplexing comments via Twitter such as “I want Drake to murder my vagina” and “it doesn’t matter what you think about yourself. All that matters is what your lover thinks of you.”

amanda-bynes-040813sp           Amanda Bynes has been making non-stop headlines it seems, & every week it appears that her behavior is becoming more & more bizarre! The most recent offense was when she was asked to leave a gymnastics class because she allegedly started crying after she did a cart wheel & her wig came off. She also has released statements online about her issues with her body image. She told Huffington Post, “I moved to New York and I love it! I lost 4 pounds since I moved. I am 121 pounds — my goal weight is 100.” And don’t even get me started about the Drake, murder my vagina tweet… Has Amanda Bynes officially gone crazy? Hard to say, but one thing I do know is something doesn’t smell right! She is either brilliant and acting out outrageous ways to keep everyone interested to see what she will do next or she has taken the quickest ticket to Crazytown! I can imagine that with how busy she is locking herself in dressing rooms & suing the paparazzi Bynes doesn’t have a lot of time to shower. And her new found fame and stench has inspired me to create an out of this world recipe for tuna pasta salad. (VIEW DETAILED RECIPE BELOW)

childstar5                     Amanda Bynes’ Murder My Tuna Pasta Salad: This recipe came to me yet again after a late night! …why do I get so hungry after most people go to bed? But my strange food habits are your gain because this recipe is easy but SO delicious! Anywho, I was looking up the Nickelodeon star’s twitter & just felt a sense of pity. Here was yet another child star who seems to be going down the shitter because of the fame. Her new look is not only drastic, but so ratchet/cheap looking. Maybe it’s just me, but after looking at her recent pictures I felt like you could see the sadness behind her eyes. It made me think of the homeless person you see in the corner, that is crying out for help silently. This got me thinking what is a super cheap easy meal that could fill up a homeless person’s starving belly. I got it! Tuna salad…and my mom always fed me well with pasta, so why not combine the two!

Ingredients:

The Perfect Pairing: Farrah Abraham & Sushi

9 Apr

Kari Feinstein's MTV Movie Awards Style Lounge - Day 2

TMZ Reported: Teen Mom star, Farrah Abraham was spotted hand in hand with adult film star, James Deen. However, the two are not a couple. Instead they recently both starred in an adult film that is currently being sold to the highest production house bidder.

THE PERFECT PAIRING: FARRAH ABRAHAM & SUSHI

This pairing may not be the most obvious, but let me tell you why I felt like the Teen Mom starlet & sushi made a perfect duo. I have always been a fan of sushi, but I have always been an adventurous eater. With much surprise to me I have found that it takes a very specific pallet to enjoy sushi. I feel like you either love sushi or won’t touch the stuff with a 10-foot pole. Sushi can be very versatile and take on many different looks & shapes. And if you are pregnant you are advised to STAY AWAY from raw fish. These are all qualities I feel apply to Farrah Abraham. She has recently been seen with her new face… I personally think she has gone from a crunchy roll to maybe a soft shell crab roll. She has managed to smooth out the edges, but in the process lost a lot of her flavor & is fighting to stay in the spotlight. However, I don’t know if pornography is the way to do so! I just know one thing is for certain… just like sushi she better stay away from all things pregnant because the last thing she needs is another person getting in between her and her man…once again pun intended!

Hours of Operation: Silverlake Ramen House

It was a random Sunday night and my friend and I wanted to eat some soup. While in search of a Vietnamese Pho restaurant we came upon this restaurant by chance. I was a little nervous because I had never had this japanese soup before & didn’t know what to expect. After first bite let’s just say I was hooked…I wouldn’t be lying to tell you that I returned the very next day for more! …and am contemplating going back again this week.

With a rating of 4.8 out of 5 on multiple food websites, I knew that SilverLake Ramen  would be wonderful for my first experience with ramen! But I need to make something clear. Ramen is not the dried artificially-flavored 10-cent instant meal found in college dorms across America. Real Japanese ramen is a delicious, unctuous thing of beauty.

It is served in a bowl twice the size of your head. The luscious pork-based broth is served with slightly chewy noodles, crisp bean sprouts, scallions, and glazed pork belly. This orchestra of flavors will have your mouth singing by the end of the night. The flavor tones are intense… it seems like every sense on your tongue is vibrating with enjoyment.

Before taking my first bite I expected a taste similar to Pho, the other popular Asian soup. I anxiously waited for my bowl because I really didn’t know what to expect. But if pho was a light, simple girl…Ramen would be her beefier, thicker, spicier older brother. The pork broth is so creamy and filling. There is an undertone of heat, but the kind that warms the soul. The sprouts, scallions and seaweed provide texture and crunch. It cuts through the thickness of the broth and chewiness of the delicious egg noodles. Then when your mouth is just beginning to get used to the crunch, heat, and texture your palette gets hit with a surprise! The perfectly crisp fatty pork belly. Pork belly is the part of pork used when making the best bacon. It is thick and meaty, but so juicy because of the fat content.

Some say simplicity is beauty when it comes to soup… but with everything Ramen has going on the ingredients still do not clash! It all comes together so beautiful that people cannot get enough.

“How does this relate to the entertainment world?” you might be asking… Well Japanese ramen has been popularized by celebrities recently. Specifically, the foodie some love to hate, Chrissy Teigen.

          In her food blog, Chrissy spent 6 days blogging about the “delushiousness” that is Japanese ramen. Her famous fiance, John Legend, and Chrissy flew to Japan in search of the most authentic ramen money could buy. Unfortunately, Chrissy was not able to pick just one restaurant. Instead she realized that ramen is and should be a “daily bowl of sodium and carby goodness.”
