We’re Expanding

Sunday, August 8, 2010

I’ve been eager to tell you for weeks… I’m pregnant!
Maybe you’ve already noticed the decline in posts and I’m sorry.  This morning sickness thing has been killing me–it’s wrongly named because mine lasts all day long. Feeling ill has made it impossible to cook or even think about food. Everything tastes funny and even though […]

Are we Still Talking about Restaurant Week?

Wednesday, July 14, 2010

Every time restaurant week rolls around, I get e-mails asking for advice on where to go. (Please don’t stop e-mailing me for advice. I am truly flattered.) If you didn’t see my little rant a year and a half ago, please read it. I still feel the same way. What I’m really happy about it […]

Fancy Food Show 2010

Friday, July 2, 2010

The Fancy Food Show at the Javitz Center is a three day affair that comes to New York once a year (also shows in San Francisco and Washington D.C.) I’m always looking forward to trying goods from over 5,000 booths, and still trying to figure out what the right strategy is to getting as much […]

Two Year Wedding Anniversary and more Milestones

Tuesday, June 1, 2010

Remember when we got married? Can you believe it’s been two years? This picture was recently taken by our friend Eddie (make-up done by Caroline Louw). Do we still look like happy newlyweds or what?

We want to thank you for being with us the whole time, and so many of you have become friends that […]

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 […]

Holton Farms, a New and Improved CSA + Discount!

Wednesday, May 5, 2010

Lon and I love the concept of a CSA, community supported agriculture. I want to have a relationship with my farmer, where I show loyalty to them and they take special care to ensure that I get fresh and delicious food. But, call me a control freak, I’ve never been able to get over the […]

Pillsbury’s 44th Bake-Off

Tuesday, April 13, 2010

Due to fortunate and unfortunate circumstances, I ended up on the same flight to Orlando with Carol, aka NYCityMama. Neither of us were originally scheduled for that flight but prior to the official beginning of festivities, I already had a new friend. We arrived at the hotel with under 20 […]

2010 DIFFA’s Dining by Design: Table Hop & Taste

Monday, March 22, 2010

The Design Industries Foundation Fighting AIDS (DIFFA) holds a Dining by Design event every year (see our 2009 coverage here). It is a glorious exhibit of dining tables spanning sleek, fabulous, emotive, stark, schematic, thematic, colorful, monochromatic, and inspirational. To top it off, Table Hop & Taste is a 3-hour special, where restaurants set up […]


Sunday, November 8, 2009

We were invited to attend Cook.Eat.Drink.Live, yet another food event. It seems like these are popping up every other week these days (in NYC). Held at The Tunnel/La Venue, there was a room for wine tasting, a long corridor of food tastings, and two stages with scheduled demos. There was also one room that seemed […]

Equipment Upgrade

Sunday, November 1, 2009

We are constantly inspired by some of the photography we see.  By other bloggers (like WoR Couple), by friends & family / semi-pro photographers (like Steve, Bill, and Eddie), and by others.  And while we’ve received many wonderful compliments on our improving skills, we realized it was time to upgrade our equipment, it’s not the […]
