Summer Break

Hello, faithful readers!  Dishin’ with Daisy will be going on Summer vacation for a bit in the coming weeks.  When I’m back, there will be some updates and surprises and I am excited for the road ahead as I come up on my two years of blogging.  Wishing you all well and hope you are…

Sidebar- Go to Sidecar!

Brunching in New York is the lifeblood of any good weekend.  So on this brunch adventure I ventured into Brooklyn to try out Sidecar and catch up with friends and new babies! I immediately fell in love when I walked in; dark wood, rustics tables and floors, a relaxed vibe, great music in the background…

Snackable Sardines

Let me start by saying that there are very few foods that I will not try at least once.  I love fish.  Almost any kind, with the exception of salmon which I realize I am in the minority.  I keep trying to like it, but alas it’s just not meant to be.  Anyway, about a…

Christmas Baking

Ahh, Christmas time.  The air is crisp, the lights are bright and my sugar high runs  through the New Year.  Every year I like to bake up a few treats to give to coworkers.  This year I decided to try my hand at fudge (amazing!) and Snickerdoodles (a classic).  Now, coming from an Italian household,…

367…

367.  That’s how many days old this little baby is.  12 months, 2 days.  I can’t believe I’ve gotten to this point.  A year seems like a lifetime ago.  I was in a very transitional place in my career and this blog grew out of the frustration of not being able to express my creativity…

The Apple of My Pie

I communicate with my readers through an iMac, a MacBook, an iPhone and sometimes an iPad.  So to honor Steve Jobs the only was a food blogger can, I re-present the iPie.   Layers of homemade caramel and apples in a handmade all-butter crust, topped with a crumble.  It’s the ultimate in comfort.  Enjoy! Caramel…

It’s Coffee Ice Cream Day!

Did you know that today is national Coffee Ice Cream day?  I love coffee, I like ice cream and I can’t decide how I feel about coffee ice cream to tell you the truth.  But, I came across this great recipe on Serious Eats (a favorite site of mine) for Ice Cream without a machine….

Animal Crackers in my soup…

There are few things from childhood that I loved more than a box of animal crackers.  I would carry the box around like my own little purse and I was always prepared if I was ever stranded without a snack.  I would march them around the table, the zebras played with the lions.  It was…

No-Cook Salad!

THIS SALAD NEEDS NO COOKING! Okay, bear with me, I am really trying to sound like an amazing cook. Word on the street, though, is that you don’t actually need to cook a salad  to enjoy. Hmp. Who knew? Seriously, though, this is a great salad, even if you are in a rush!  Plus, with…

My Mug Shot ;)

Hello Dishin’ with Daisy Readers! It’s me, KATINA! Krista’s sister! I’m here, I’m writing, Yeah! Can you tell that I’m excited?  ha! Okay, so, let me start by saying that I love good food, (especially the delicious food my sister creates) but, um, okay, I’m just going to say it… I’m not much of a…

Dinner at Bar Basque

Hey!  Hope you are all having a great week so far!  Today’s post is part two of my New York Restaurant Week coverage.  Once again I found myself surrounded by fabulous friends who love to eat.  We made a date for Bar Basque, a wonderful Spanish restaurant in the Garment District. The restaurant’s main color…
