“No Kitchen Required” on BBC America

Monday, April 2, 2012

On Saturday night, we made our way to the secret location of NY Bite Club (an underground supper club) where we ate an extra generously portioned tasting menu of dishes from Chihuahua, Mexico and drank cocktails by the famous Joaquin Simo of
Death & Co. 433 East 6th Street, New York, […]

Pumpkin Cider Cocktail

Monday, October 24, 2011

We had foodie friends coming over for a potluck for no reason (#P4NR).  Lately I’ve been trying to come up with interesting cocktails to serve to guests when they arrive.  Something refreshing, to get things going, an aperitif to stimulate hunger — although with the food our friends brought, not much help was needed!
The thought […]

Las Vegas Taste Tour

Tuesday, November 23, 2010

We were so honored to be invited by Harrah’s Entertainment Group to their first Las Vegas Taste Tour. Seven restaurants and one lounge was a lot to handle in just 3 days but we managed. The itinerary was put together to exclusively showcase Harrah’s propoerties so while we did not chose where to go, we […]

Lemonade by the Glass

Thursday, July 8, 2010

This kitchen process is taking a lot longer than expected and we haven’t even started demolition yet! Luckily, I go to my mom’s once a week to get her Chinese recipes, but when I’m home, I’m still using only plug-in appliances (rice cooker, toaster oven, panini press, waffle maker, microwave, etc.) I didn’t foresee having […]

Casa Carol

Friday, May 14, 2010

Now that you know it was my birthday, expect to hear more about the celebrating. After all, birthdays are all about more eating, as if I could eat any more than usual. Lunch at Eleven Madison Park was an excellent way to kick things off. I was only worried that I wouldn’t be hungry by […]

Homemade Ginger Ale

Thursday, April 29, 2010

Finally! We moved, but it’s not all smooth sailing yet. We’re living out of boxes and we don’t have a kitchen yet. While our perfect kitchen is being built (which we will be talking about soon), I’m going to have to get crafty. I do have many plug-in appliances (rice cooker, toaster oven, panini press, […]

Kopi Luwak – aka Cat Poo Coffee (Give-Away)

Monday, April 26, 2010

Kopi Luwak was once thought of as an urban legend. In 2007, it was featured in The Bucket List, as one of the important things to do/drink before you die. Now, popularly known as the most expensive coffee in the world, it has certainly become a talking piece among coffee drinkers. Having seen prices on […]

Japanese Knotweed Cocktail and Bottle Stopper Give Away

Wednesday, April 21, 2010

I grew up in New York City, so I’m not that familiar with foraging. But, presented with the idea of a guided tour to forage through a park and then cook the goods, I was curious. Despite complete trust in my friend Marc of No Recipes, I still had to double check. “Marc, I’m not […]

Your Own Coffee Blend

Saturday, April 17, 2010

I love 100% pure Kona coffee from Hawaii. (Do not fall for Kona blends with just small amounts of Kona.) For a long time, it was my “house” coffee, and it drew friends from near and far, seriously. I had friends who would ask if they could stop by for a cup of coffee. Starting […]

Tea Cups and Coffee Mugs

Friday, April 9, 2010

Have you ever thought about the shape and size of your tea cup or coffee mug? There was this one time in band camp…no, no, no. I’m really talking about just used as is, exactly what it was meant for, sipping a hot cup of tea, drinking your morning Joe, or warming your hands around […]
