Bahhh Rammm Yeww- Shepherd’s Pie

It’s that dreaded in between time in New York, right at the tail end of winter and the teasing of spring, but it’s still grey, chilly, and not time to un-coat yourself (believe me, I lost a few coats this winter).   Though Shepherd’s Pie is often thought of as a winter only dish, I…

Flex Some Mussel

Some days you just want to kick back on a lazy Sunday, pound some cheap beer with your homies, and listen to the collaborative 90’s playlist y’all have created on Spotify while talking about when gas used to be under a dollar a gallon and Gavin Rossdale still had his dignity.  On days like this,…

It’s Ok To Have a Fat Kid Day

We’ve all been there: you wake up in the morning immediately regretting your life choices, parched for water, wondering how many bourbons are too many, and coincidentally the same thing about pepperoni calzones.  Well the answer to those questions is that there is never too much of a good thing until the next morning when…

Toasties

The best things in life have eggs on them.  That’s all.  You could put an egg on anything and people will think it’s just the greatest thing ever.  Never mind the invention of the wheel or Bop Its or stem cell blah blah, eggs are the best and make the world go round.  As fall…

Whole 30 Bolognese and Yes, There’s Bacon

As summer hangs it’s heavy backhand on New York, some might gravitate towards crisp summer salads, ripe with seasonal vegetables, dripping with sweat from lugging bags of organic goodies home from Union Square Market.  But when the season calls for it, what better way to say Hello Summer! than by a rich and hearty meat sauce?…

Sweet Potato Greek Fries

Back in college a friend helped me get a job hostessing at a fancy Greek restaurant.  It was more of a ploy so that she could immediately quit and I would be there to take her place, but regardless I needed the money and the $8.50 an hour seemed too sweet to pass up.  It…

The Whole Dirty

After a brief hiatus filled with work, work, food, boozing with friends, more work, and a long sleep I’m back.  Somewhere in between the franticness of shoving gear into ubers, running around the city like a bat out of hell, visitors in town and out of town, and trips to different cities, I managed to…

Balls! Balls! Balls!

  What says spring you ask?  Meat of course.  Whether you get a waft of the smoke from a neighbor’s grill or a craving for a juicy, medium rare rack of lamb, meat and spring are in the air.  And what’s a nice way of letting those slightly cool lingering evenings know that you are…

The Great Fall

Fall in Brooklyn is very similar to summer in Brooklyn; we strive to savor the season by doing what we do best and that’s eating and drinking and backyard BBQs, only now it’s with jackets, warm boozy drinks, and hints of cinnamon and pumpkin.  What better way to welcome old friends to a new neighborhood than…

Meat Pie

Meat Pie.  Meeeeaaaaat Pieeeeeee.  Is there really anything left to say? I lied, there is actually.  Last week, as part of our ladies’ supper club, we decided to take the club to kitchen where each person brought a dish.  Even though fall has been little more than a strip tease showing a little leg on…
