Anna: Beet Chocolate Cupcakes

Friday, December 18, 2009

Rugelach, not to be confused with arugula (a lovely peppery green), is a traditional Jewish pastry. To pronounce correctly, you should sound like you’re coughing up phlegm at the end.

Rugelach is the perfect thing to make this time of year. First of all, you can use it for Hannukah or Christmas because everyone loves it. […]

Hot & Sour Soup

Wednesday, December 16, 2009

I consider Hot & Sour Soup a stuffy nose remedy. Like wasabi, it instantly opens the flood gates, and for a heavenly 10 minutes after drinking this soup, you can breathe, through both nostrils if you’re lucky.

Brooklyn Fare

Monday, December 14, 2009

I loved everything about Brooklyn Fare (the pop-up restaurant attached to a grocery store), starting with the sign on their window, “Our Kitchen is Bigger than Yours…” It’s just a wonderful feeling to sit in the chef’s kitchen and eat as Cesar Ramirez (formerly of Bouley) prepares the food in front of you, being the […]

Broccoli Stem and Cherry Salad

Sunday, December 13, 2009

I know lots of you are throwing out the broccoli stems, just eating the pretty little florets. I also know that you’re not wasting it intentionally, you just don’t see recipes for broccoli stems that often. Who knows what to do with them? Well, let this be a start to new things. Broccoli stems are […]

Lamb Sauce

Thursday, December 10, 2009

When you’re introduced to new people, do you start chattering immediately, or does it take you time to warm-up and get comfortable? It always surprises me when Lon starts talking to random people outside, a guy waiting on line in front of us, the check-out clerk at Bed Bath & Beyond, or the couple standing […]

Cafe Orlin, Spot Dessert Bar, Zucco – Le French Diner

Wednesday, December 9, 2009

I did a lot of eating out yesterday, starting at
Cafe Orlin 41 St. Mark’s Place, New York, NY 10003 for lunch, only to eat some “real” food before checking out Pichet Ong’s new
Spot Dessert Bar 13 St. Mark’s Place, New York, NY 10003. I picked up some […]

Earl Grey Apple Sauce

Tuesday, December 8, 2009

I saw a 3 pound bag of apples for $1 at the farmer’s market. One dollar! I didn’t even know what I was going to do with it. Apple pie, apple cake, doughnuts, fresh cider, apple crisps, the options are endless, and it didn’t matter because it felt like it was basically free. Sometimes, you […]
