Ronnybrook Ice Cream

Monday, May 11, 2009

I mentioned that I got Ronnybrook Ice Cream from the Farmer’s Market…we tried it yesterday during our Mother’s Day Dinner. The general concensus was that the vanilla wasn’t very notable, but the Toasted Hazelnut was great. I would prefer a tad less sweet but I still really enjoyed it.
The real highlights are: it’s hormone, pesticide, […]

Swiss Chocolate Biscuits, Salmon Jerky, and Sponge Cake Rolls

Friday, May 8, 2009

This is kind of a random bunch of products, but we’ve received some edible gifts lately, so we need to report on them. Steve just got back from some traveling so he brought us these Goldkenn Swiss Chocolate Biscuits from Geneva.

They’re quite good, chocolaty but not too sweet, with some coconut for added flavor […]

360 Cookware

Monday, May 4, 2009

Last week, Lon, Carol, and I headed over to the 360 Cookware Press Event, introducing this new line of pots by Americraft. It was your typical press event: fancy looking food and free flowing alcohol. We loved all the modern plastic bowls and plates. Presentation A+, but taste wise, ehh. None of us went back […]

Greenbox Pizza

Wednesday, April 29, 2009

This is an incredibly well designed pizza box concept, that according to the video, is now patented.  Environmentally Conscious Organization, Inc. (ECO), right out of our hometown, NYC has created a normal-sized pizza box made out of 100% recycled materials.  But who cares about that… 🙂
Much cooler is the fact that the top of the […]

Beater Blade Plus

Tuesday, April 28, 2009

A few weeks back I came across a product review for Beater Blade Plus by New Metro Design, on some invention news website.  The idea seemed like one that I’ve had for a while — extend the blade attachment for the KitchenAid mixer to reach the bottom and walls of the bowl.  Pretty simple.
The review […]

L.A. Burdick Handmade Chocolates

Wednesday, April 22, 2009

We found L.A. Burdick Handmade Chocolates at the Dining by Design: Table Hop & Taste, and from then on, we’ve fallen deeper and deeper in love! You know how rarely we truly rave about products. We’re a tough pair and it’s hard to impress us, but these are damn good chocolates. So while we’re finishing […]

Bodegas Dios Baco Oloroso Sherry

Wednesday, April 22, 2009

Chris happened to bring a bottle of sherry that perfectly matched our dessert.  He didn’t know we were making Apricot Beignets, but he nailed the choice with an oloroso sherry from Bodegas Dios Baco, originating in Jerez, Spain.

First, olorosos are a bit sweeter and less dry than other sherrys, that is perfect for our personal […]

Hebert’s TurDucKen

Tuesday, April 21, 2009

Family friends, in from Texas, wanted to have some Turducken.  It was after Chris, their son, told them about how good it was, and their friends recommended Hebert’s Specialty Meats.  The small (about 12 pounds) poultry item was shipped to Jessica’s parents’ home.  Unfortunately, due to some oven issues, we weren’t able to make it […]

Origins Tea Forte

Sunday, April 12, 2009

We had a lovely brunch at Carol’s today and saw these beautiful tea bags. They are available at Origins and definitely win the beauty pageant. Everyone at the table oo’d and ahh’d over them.

Unfortunately, they don’t have much flavor to them. Lon tried the Green Tango (mango) and thought it barely tasted like anything. I […]

Japanese Rice Crackers

Thursday, April 9, 2009

When Yumiko came from Japan, she brought these amazing rice crackers. I’m already pretty addicted to the rice crackers you can buy here, but these are even better. Each individual bag (in the box of 12 bags) has a nice colorful assortment of unique flavors. Of course, with Japanese products, you have to admire the […]
