Woop! Woop! CoupSmart!

OMG, guess what?  It snowed again this week!  NYC is so close to breaking the snow record for January…fingers crossed!  On to another Foodless Friday post! Ok, let me just start by saying that I am a very grateful person.  I have been blessed with a loving family, friends and things are good.  If I…

D-ough!

Happy Monday!  Hope you are settled in and snuggly warm.   I checked the weather when I woke up and saw it was a balmy 6° out.  At least I didn’t need to pack my yogurt with an ice pack to keep it cold.  Thanks Mother Nature!  Anyway, this weekend was very productive.  I cleaned my…

A Reso-what? Oh, Resolution

Confession- I detoured to the Poseidon bakery on my way to work the other morning. Embarrassed? Not at all. Delicious? You better believe it. Good, now that I got that off my chest I feel better.

What a year it has been…

2011 has been an interesting year.  So far I’ve started my *new* Q & A with Daisy posts, I’ve seen snow every day, I’ve purged closets and cabinets of unnecessary items, I’ve gotten a stomach bug, a nose that is both stuffed and runny at the same time, missed out on winning the Mega Millions…

To Spike or Not to Spike?

Thanks to all who have been sending in questions for me to dish about. Continue to email me at dishinwithdaisy@gmail.com and check back often to see if your question was answered! Today’s question is from David in NY. Why do you use vodka in a tomato sauce?  What kind of vodka will work? Great question…
