Stoke’s Purple Sweet Potatoes + Give-Away

Friday, January 4, 2013

A couple of weeks ago I went to the New York Produce Show for the second year in a row. It’s one of my favorite recurring events because of my love for all things fruits and vegetables; and especially for learning about new produce. The mom and daughter team (Karen & Alex) that represent second […]

Olympus Greek Yogurt

Thursday, May 24, 2012

~~Sponsored Post~~
Greek-style yogurt has become super popular in the US and I’m definitely a fan. The thicker consistency makes it a much better product to cook with, especially for tzatzikis and raitas. Even for eating alone or serving with fruit, why eat that watery stuff? I converted to Greek-style yogurts roughly 10 years ago and […]

Pinata Apples + Give-Away

Tuesday, January 10, 2012

Those who know me know that I’m sort of a produce geek: especially after recently winning second place in a produce identification contest at The New York Produce Show. My love of new or exotic fruits and vegetables paid off! We’re always looking to diversify our meals with new items or interesting preparations or just tweaking […]

Birth-Day Food

Tuesday, March 1, 2011

As a brand new mama of 12 days, please excuse if this is incoherent…
During the last few weeks of pregnancy, I started creating a list of all the things I wanted to eat as soon as Caya was born. There’s a lot of my favorite foods in the “Do-Not-Eat” for pregnant mamas list so it’s […]

The Best Little Teapot

Saturday, January 15, 2011

We haven’t done a product review in a long while and that’s because nothing has really wowed us for a long time. Perhaps that’s why I’m getting a little giddy about sharing this great teapot/tea strainer that my parents first introduced to us. They had brought the contraption back from Taiwan.
While we were staying at […]

Potato Chips from London

Wednesday, December 1, 2010

One of the things Lon and I love to do when we travel is check out the local supermarkets. In particular, the potato chip aisle, where we’re always bound to find new and unexpected flavors. (Remember the Paprika chips and the Olive Oil chips we found in Greece? or the Magic Masala chips from India?) […]

POM’s Wonderful Inside Soiree + Give-Away

Tuesday, October 19, 2010

I wanted to put up this post before I left for London, but alas, dummy me, I realized morning of my flight that my passport was expired! I called those expensive expediting companies but by 10am, there was nothing they could do to get me on a 7:30pm flight. First, I panicked and cried. Then, […]

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 […]

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 […]

Holiday Gift Guide 2009

Monday, November 30, 2009

As soon as Thanksgiving dinner is inhaled, holiday shopping takes over. Some start at the stroke of midnight (sale at Woodbury Commons starts a midnight) while others were refining their wish lists at the dessert table. Some warm up their clicker finger for Cyber Monday and we’ve got our fingers crossed for a new apartment. […]
