Starbucks Launches VIA Instant Coffee

Wednesday, September 30, 2009

I’ve written some pretty mean things about Starbucks. I hate their coffee and I think they know that. Yet, they still keep inviting me to their events and I still keep going. They may believe that any press is good press but there’s no guarantee that I will write about it at all. ( I […]

Thyme for Sun-Dried Tomato Twists

Tuesday, September 29, 2009

When I was thinking about a nice spread of appetizers to put out, I wanted finger foods, easy to pick up while holding a glass of wine. Guests can pick up bites as they roam around and mingle. (I don’t actually have a party planned at the moment. This is just the kind of stuff […]

Salumeria Rossi

Monday, September 28, 2009

Salumeria Rossi 283 Amsterdam Avenue, New York, NY 10023 is a restaurant and meat counter. The dinner we had there was forgettable, and already forgotten, but the salty meats is where they shine. It’s cheaper to take it to-go anyway and that is what you should definitely do. Select three or more […]

Saturday, September 26, 2009

We were at Le Fooding D’Amour tonight (held at
PS 1 Contemporary Art Center 22-25 Jackson Avenue, Long Island City, NY 11101). It’s a mess of a food event with lines being the main theme. With at least 1000 people, probably more, and just nine stands to get food….you do the math. […]

Beet Chocolate Cupcakes

Friday, September 25, 2009

Remember when I was so so sad that I couldn’t eat the gorgeous Red Velvet Cake that Lon made (because I’m allergic to artificial food coloring)? Well, I still can’t eat Red Velvet Cake, but I’m still researching into a way to make it red without artificial food coloring. King Arthur is now selling some […]

I don’t have a very compelling argument for making bagels at home. If you live in New York, amazing bagels are cheap and available. Making a good bagel at home requires buying two ingredients you probably don’t have, malt (malt syrup is available at Whole Foods and malt powder is available at King Arthur) and […]
