Orange – NYC

March 31, 2011

Ah, our first color challenge. Nothing says orange like carrots, the main ingredient in the quintessential orange dessert that is carrot cake. But who wants to just make plain ol’ carrot cake? Not this girl. Especially when my bicoastal counterpart is making something so special. Carrots + cookies + creamcheesefrosting = magic. Carrot(s are orange!) […]

Orange – SF

I’m a hardcore snacker.  I tend to graze all day on fruits, veggies, nuts and other treats.  Lunch is usually leftovers from the night before. I wish there was a logical reason for my squirrel-like eating habits, like “It’s great to eat 6 meals a day!” or “Keeps my metabolism up!” But let’s be honest.  I’m just a […]

Indulgence – NYC

Sometimes you just need to take it to the edge, push the boundaries of gluttony, and make something the likes of which should never be attempted, let alone consumed. This was a birthday request from, by far, one of the most talented and accomplished professional bakers I know, and a really wonderful friend. She sent […]

There’s very few things that top having a special meal with special people in your home.  That being said, to us, nothing says “St. Patty’s […]

Corned beef and cabbage. My old stool at O’Leary’s in Boston.  Irish soda bread.  Irish coffee.  Green beer.  NYPD and FDNY at the Kinsale on Third Ave and 94th Street.  Parades.  Green vomit.  Potatoes.  Hoboken. Eating Rita’s water ice in Hoboken after a full day of fun.  Guinness. Those are the things that remind me […]

Mint & Chocolate – NYC

This post idea came c/o our Gimme Some Sugah! section from my wonderful and talented baker friend Kelsey – awesome idea, and hope we did you proud, lady! Of the many possible recipe options that honor the classic combo of mint and chocolate, I thought I’d take a slightly different approach. Not brownies, not cookies, […]
