The Multiple Personalities of Coffee

Do you like your coffee with a shot of Kahlua? Do you take it extra large, put it on the tab? Are you a coffee snob who’ll only drink coffee that’s been French pressed?

I am most definitely NOT A Vegan. Why? Because I love butter. And cheese. And bacon. Especially bacon. Also eggs. Also cheese. Did I mention cheese? This isn’t the point. The point is this: you might be a vegan. Or you might not. But even if you’re not, you probably have friends who are. And you might want to invite those friends over for dinner. Dinner is easy. Pasta with veggies. Boom. Rice with tofu. Pa-zow. Vegan. You’re a pro. […]

The only thing that would make Elvis Presley more proud of this milkshake would be to add bacon and deep fry it. I always liked the King’s tunes, but what really caught my attention early on was the profile of what he ate. Apparently his favorite sandwich was a giant loaf of bread, hollowed out, slathered in peanut butter and chocolate, with slices of banana and bacon, deep fried. A man after my own heart. Since it’s too much work to fry […]

I’m in New York and I need some comfort food. Enter soup. Red Bell Pepper & Tomato Soup, to be specific. This recipe is so easy and quick and it makes a ton of soup so you can have it for dinner the next day when it will inevitably be cold and gray. Unless you don’t live on the East coast. In which case, I’m happy for you and you should eat soup anyway because this one is delicious. I […]

People, this might not be the most exciting of all recipes. But wait! Don’t leave yet! Just because it’s not exciting, doesn’t mean you won’t love it! Look. This is the one and only vinaigrette you’ll ever need.

Yeah. It’s happening. It’s pumpkin season. Not that it not being pumpkin season ever stopped me before. I really, really like pumpkin. I don’t think I always did. But to be honest, I can’t remember a time when I didn’t love it. Or at least, I don’t want to remember such a time, if it exists at all. Pumpkin and cream cheese is a combination that ought to be as classic as peanut butter and jelly. Because, it’s basically awesome. […]

As a recent transplant to New York City, I was introduced to the novel idea of apple-picking. Apparently, it’s a must to welcome the start of Fall. And who am I to question such a delicious sounding tradition? So we headed out to Upstate New York and gathered ourselves some apples. I encountered an apple I never heard of before…the Mutsu apple. It’s enormous! But really, it is. When you have a giant bag of apples, you can get sick of eating just […]

You guys. This stuff is seriously ridiculous. Seriously. A while back, I made a chocolate mousse cake. I’m not going to lie, it rocked my world. I was so super proud. It was awesome. Then, much to my astonishment, I learned via my friend at FrugalFeeding, that what I had made was not, in fact, mousse. Martha Stewart had downright lied to me. Not that I was all that upset, because did I mention how delicious it was? But, anyway. […]
