Savory Fig-alicious Flatbread

Hi there!  Happy Monday!  Picture it- Friday.  10am.  I discovered I had a craving for figs and blue cheese.  Probably because I stumbled across this beauty from Martha Stewart.  This salty-sweet concoction looked amazing but I also knew I wanted some different flavor profiles if I was going to make a savory flatbread with figs.  Go…

I’ll have some turkey with that bacon

  A coworker sent this to me this morning so I can’t take credit for it…but OH MY.  I think the turkey skin would be weird, right?  Maybe if it was a skinless turkey this could work.  What do you think?  Happy *early* Thanksgiving my faithful readers!  

Guess Who’s Back?!

Hello my readers!  I am back from my jaunt across the pond.  First I want to thank my sister Katina for taking over while I was away.  What an amazing experience England was.  Of course we saw preparations for the upcoming wedding, but aside from that there was history to savor, sounds, smells and views…

Pancakes in the morning, Pancakes in the evening, Pancakes anytime!

Hotcakes, flapjacks, griddle cakes, crepes, latkes, short stacks, batter cakes, silver dollars, Dutch babies, blankets, cakes, johnnycakes.  Whatever term you call them, pancakes are a staple across many cultures.  And they are delightfully delicious.  I love pancakes.  I love them.  You can keep your waffles, I’ll take the pancakes please.  I have made pancakes from scratch a dozen times….

Two words- Lobster BLT

I haven’t seen much of my kitchen recently with the exception of making the occasional cup of coffee in our newish Keurig machine.  Which means I haven’t really turned on my stove or cooked much.  But, I have been frequenting some yummy spots in New York trying all different items.  On a recent gorgeously sunny…

As far as dining out goes, the past few weeks have been busier than most.  You already heard about my brunch last week by Buttermilk at the James Beard House, but today it is all about Cookshop, a restaurant in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan.  I was pleasantly surprised to find out that Chef Marc Meyer…

Brunch at The James Beard House

Just over a month ago, on Christmas morning I unwrapped an amazing gift from my sister.  Brunch for two at The James Beard House!  I had always heard about the meals there, but this was the first time I was going to experience it.  Owner and Wine Director Doug Crowell and Executive Chef Ryan Angulo…

Hale and Hearty for breakfast? YES!

Let me give you a little lesson…for New Yorkers, Hale and Hearty is this soup gold mine that is a lunch staple.  I agree with the masses that the one time I had soup there with my mom, it was amazing.  So amazing in fact that four years later she still brings it up.  “Remember…

Brooklyn Brunch at Bubby’s

Always up for new brunch places and exploring new neighborhoods, I spent a fabulous afternoon brunching with friends in DUMBO at Bubby’s. Located at 1 Main Street it’s a gorgeous space with floor to ceiling views of Brooklyn Bridge Park and Manhattan in the background. I had the Bubby’s Breakfast: scrambled eggs, amazing bacon, cheesy…
