In the summer I love having outdoor brunch on Sundays so I can look my prettiest for the man and take my chihuahuas with me.
If you like the taste of french fries, you'll love the spanish tortilla. When made correctly, the spanish tortilla is a delicious half-inch thick "cake" of fried potatoes mixed with fried eggs and onions.
What you'll need:
1 cup olive oil
four large potatos (peel and cut into small pieces about 2mm thick)
salt to taste
one large onion, thinly sliced
four large eggs.
(Some people add thin slices of red pepper together with the onion)
Heat the oil in a 9-inch skillet, add potato pieces, one slice at a time so that they don't stick. Alternate layers of potato and onion. COOK slowly, medium flame. DO NOT FRY!! Turn occasionally until potatoes are tender, but NOT brown. They must be loose, not "in a cake".
Beat eggs in a large bowl with a fork. Salt to taste. Drain potatoes. Add potatoes to beaten eggs, pressing them so that eggs cover them completely. Let sit for 15 minutes. Heat 2 tbsps of the oil in large skillet. Add potato-egg mixture, spreading quickly. Lower the heat to medium-high. Shake pan to prevent sticking (crucial step!!) When potatoes start to brown, put a plate on top skillet and flip to cook other side, adding another tbsp of oil. Brown on the other side. Can flip three or four times for better cooking.
After cooking, the tortilla can be cut into pizza-like triangles to serve 4-6 people, or cut into squares to give a whole group a bite-sized toothpick sample.
This is what the tortilla looks like inside: Enjoy!!!
A very popular roll is the Philadelphia Roll, or Philly Roll, named after the popular brand name cream cheese. It is a great combination of flavors!
I use Philadelphia brand cream cheese and I swear there is a difference. I prefer to use the lightest smoked salmon on the market (Norwegian Smoked is nice). Add one of the two suggested optional ingredients for an extra special Philadelphia roll!
Recipe For Two Large Philly Rolls
2 8" lengths of 1/4" square cream cheese
3 ounces smoked salmon
2 8" lengths of 1/4" square English cucumber
2 toasted Nori (sushi grade seaweed) sheets
1 cup Sushi rice (see recipe)
1 ounce thinly sliced Maui onion
pinch dried bonito flakes (Hanakatsuo)
1/2 ounce tobiko (flying fish caviar - I prefer gold or red)
Basic Rolling Of Futomaki Rolls
So let's get to it and make a great Philly roll!
Step 1 - Prepare Nori Sheet
First place one full sheet of sushi nori on your bamboo mat, shiny side down.
Step 2 - Cover Lightly With Sushi Rice
Lightly cover the nori sheet with your prepared sushi rice - leaving the remaining inch and a half of nori bare lengthwise away from you.
Step 3 - Place Toppings Lengthwise
Place your toppings lengthwise at center of your rice.
Step 4 - Start Rolling
Fold your mat over, centering your ingredients with respect to your rice sheet to the far edge of your rice. With even pressure, tighten your roll by pressing and pulling on your mat.
Step 5 - Tighten Your Roll
Finish your rolling by rolling your tightened roll over the last flap of nori. Repeat the tightening process if necessary.
Step 6 - Slice & Serve
Slice your Philadelphia Roll into eight pieces. And that's it — the perfect Philly Roll! Enjoy!

Laura Mercier Foundation Primer Oil-Free is a lightweight, creamy gel - used prior to foundation - that acts as an invisible barrier between skin and makeup. I bought it at Bloomingdale's when I went to have my make-up done with my friend and I have since fallen in love with it.
Specifically created for oily, sensitive and acne-prone skin, which is exactly what my poor skin suffers from.
Contains high water content and addresses surface dehydration around active blemishes. It contains oil controlling ingredients that ensure long-wear and flawless application. Some of these ingredients are Vitamins A, C, & E which act as antioxidants and protect the skin. Another cool detail is that you may cool the Foundation Primer in the refrigerator to reduce puffiness. (1.7 fl. oz.)
I use Bare Escentuals mineral foundation and I have to assure you that my make-up stays put throughout the day. No smudging, no disappearing, just perfect. This primer retails for $30.00 and you may shop for your very own foundation primer at Lauramercier.com .
