drink: Matcha Green Tea Latte

I’ve known about the magical powers of matcha green tea: that it can used in ice cream, muffins, and crepe cakes, but I have never actually used it for its initial use: tea. This weekend was the first time I made this type of latte and it was just as delicious as I thought it … Continue reading

drink: Elderflower Lemonade

When I was shopping at my local Whole Foods Market the other day,a bottle of Belvoir Elderflower Lemonade caught my eye. The vase-like bottle shape, the vintage, romantic label, and the idea of a flower-based lemonade was something I could not ignore, so I bought a bottle and I had no regrets. The extremely light … Continue reading

eat: Shoofly Pie

This weekend, I found myself in Amish Country and paid a visit to the home of the Shoofly Pie in Lancaster County. Let me tell you: it was love at first bite. I was skeptical at first since at first glance, the pie resembles the “special” chocolate pie Minny baked in the film, “The Help”, … Continue reading

drink: Strawberry Rhubarb Margarita

Just because Cinco de Mayo has come and gone, it doesn’t mean that you have to stop celebrating. As the temperature begins to rise and rise, the quest to quench one’s thirst continues to rise. Strawberries are now in season, making it the perfect excuse to use the fruit in every way possible. Strawberry and rhubarb … Continue reading

eat: Kentucky Hot Brown

The 140th Kentucky Derby is going down tomorrow. On Saturday afternoon, people all over the country will be decking out in their finest sunhats and sundresses, rain or shine, to watch to see if California Chrome or Hoppertunity will take the coveted title. Like most popular sporting events, the Kentucky Derby has an official dish that … Continue reading

drink: Jalapeno Margaritas

I have publicly admitted that one of my guilty pleasures is the Bravo reality television show, “Vanderpump Rules“. Since the finale aired, I’ve been feeling withdrawal symptoms from not hearing Stassi’s snarky asides and Kristen’s catty comments every Monday night. I also miss not hearing about SUR’s menu with includes the seemingly popular crispy chicken and … Continue reading

eat: Chia Pudding

Every year, a new food craze is born . Last year, it was kale. This year, it feels like chia pudding, or anything with chia is becoming popular with food aficionados (though I like to think I was ahead of the trend). Not only is chia pudding pretty to look at, it’s also healthy and … Continue reading

drink: Kale Smoothie

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, local restaurants and bars will be serving “green” versions of popular drinks and cocktails. But by green, I don’t mean healthy or fair-trade ingredients, but physically green dyed everything. If you’re like me and want a slightly healthier way to celebrate March 17th, instead of having a pint of … Continue reading

eat: Shakshuka

Some foods are almost too pretty to eat. Shakshuka is one of those foods. My introduction to Shakshuka came about the same all other pretty foods like dragonfruit and macarons were introduced to me: via Instagram. This photogenic dish is made with a spiced tomato sauce and topped with poached eggs. One thing that surprised … Continue reading

drink: Salty Dog

I know you’re not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but can you judge a cocktail by its name? In the case of the Salty Dog, it’s pretty safe to say you can’t. This drink with is a simple mix of grapefruit juice and gin (or vodka) only looks like the color of … Continue reading

eat: Polenta Skillet Eggs with Chorizo

I am always up for trying new foods and ingredients. One ingredient I am starting to get into is polenta. Polenta is an Italian cornmeal that when boiled in water, broth, or any liquid substance, can become a porridge that fried, baked, grilled, etc. The possibilities are endless. What’s great about polenta is that it … Continue reading

drink: Pimm’s Cup

Yesterday morning, I woke to the horrible news delivered by Punxsutawney Phil that there would be six more weeks of winter. Six more weeks of icy sidewalks, blistering winds, and winter storms named after popular children’s names of years past. With that being said, I have never been more prepared for this weather to end. One … Continue reading

eat: Stroopwafels

If you have never tasted a stroopwafel, you need to drop everything you’re doing right now, and find a way to change that. This delicious Dutch cookie is basically a caramel syrup sandwiched between two thin sweet waffle cookies. Be warned: these treats are insanely addictive. I have trekked through snow and rain specifically just … Continue reading
