Healthier Chocolate Oatmeal Cake

Friday, November 30, 2007

I’ve been eating a lot of dessert lately so I wanted something healthier. I was bringing it to a friend’s dinner so I still wanted it to meet expectations. I found a recipe for Chocolate Oatmeal Cake and altered it to lessen the fat and sugar.
For the cake: I changed the half cup of margarine […]

Nam So’n

Friday, November 30, 2007

Two of my bridesmaids, Sara and Angie, went with me to check out a store for bridesmaids dresses. We were already in Chinatown so dinner was easy. We decided on a Vietnamese restaurant that Angie and Sara frequently visit, Nam So’n.
As I went to the bathroom, Sara and Angie picked out all the things they […]

Baby Food for Mommy

Thursday, November 29, 2007

I was making some organic butternut squash puree for my niece Sabrina who just started eating. I ended up with way more than she could eat so I made some soup for Sabrina’s mommy, Kasi. The puree for Sabrina was made by just cutting the peeled and seeded butternut squash into chunks and boiling in […]

Sorry We Were Down…

Thursday, November 29, 2007

As many of you might have noticed, our FoodMayhem web site was not working for the past two days. For that we thank our horrible, now EX-web host, OC Hosting / Velocity Networks. They merged or something and managed to completely screw up our hosting and e-mail. We are now with a […]

Italian Village Pizzeria

Tuesday, November 27, 2007

We were actually planning to have Steve and Yael over for dinner last night. I had planned an Asian style meal of Curried Carrot Soup, Beef Skewers on a bed of Fried Rice, Garlic Baby Bok Choy. I was in the middle of cooking when Lon and I started to smell a toxic odor. It […]

Brunch at Taco Taco

Sunday, November 25, 2007

My friend Stephanie introduced me to some new running buddies who are actually more in to brunch than running but hey, can’t blame them. We met at Engineer’s Gate and ran the inner loop (4 miles) in Central Park so that we could justify our brunch so soon after Thanksgiving feasting. Karen recommended Taco Taco […]

Kona Joe Coffee

Saturday, November 24, 2007

As I drank my cup of Kona Joe coffee today, I realized that I never blogged about my stock coffee. Kona Joe is the only coffee I serve at my place and that’s why all of my friends always ask for coffee when they come over. Don’t be fooled by the other “Kona” coffees. They […]

Happy Thanksgiving Left-Overs!

Friday, November 23, 2007

Thanksgiving is a great food holiday. It’s a wonderful feast that brings family together but then everyone stresses out about what to do with leftovers afterwards. At first I was going to write a bunch of ideas for what to do with left over turkey, cranberry sauce, etc. but I noticed a better idea: more […]

Apple Pie with Cranberries

Wednesday, November 21, 2007

I’m making an Apple Cranberry Pie to bring to Lon’s aunt Ilene’s house for Thanksgiving. I’ve made this pie several times and always use different apples depending on what’s available in the farmer’s market. I love baking with Mutsu apples and Granny Smith’s but I didn’t see good ones available so I used Cameo’s and […]

Perry Street

Tuesday, November 20, 2007

I was really psyched to have lunch with my friend Angie. We both have long restaurant wish lists and were about to knock another off the list together: Jean George’s Perry StreetPerry Street. Their lunch special is two dishes and dessert for $24.
We made sure to choose different items in order to sample more. […]
