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? Coffee lovers come in all shapes and sizes, and with good reason. It can be decadent, it can be straightforward, it can get the job done or provide a lovely afternoon respite. However you take it, let’s agree that coffee is awesome and you should love every […]

pancakes4-1024x679

Pancakes are awesome. Aren’t they? My dad was the pancake maker in our house. Yes, we had a pancake maker and we called him Dad. And he made the best pancakes. Famous ones, or so he claimed. My mom made everything else, but pancakes were my dad’s domain. Sometimes we’d have to beg him to make them, but most of the time we didn’t even have to ask. They were a weekend tradition, Dad’s Famous Pancakes. I still hold the […]

Caesar salad is really one of life’s great pleasures. It’s great topped with grilled chicken, sautéed shrimp, or a piece of roast salmon.  A little pile of Caesar salad is a wonderful accompaniment to a sandwich or a bowl of soup.  A big bowl of Caesar all by itself is a satisfying meal.  Traditionally it’s made with romaine lettuce, toasted croutons, lots of cracked black pepper and parmesan cheese, and of course the ubiquitous creamy and garlicky Caesar dressing.  You […]

blueberry-dessert1

Hello folks! When I was younger, one of my favorite summertime desserts was fresh berries with homemade whipped cream. Since my mom always kept our fridge stocked with fresh fruit and whipping cream, there was never a shortage of dessert at the Mizono house and never any screaming children. Using that summery treat as inspiration, I made blueberry ice cream with marshmallow whipped cream. Not only does it taste delicious, but it looks incredible. Here is my spin on fresh […]

breakfast-smoothie-bowl

So I’ve mentioned how much I like smoothies for breakfast. But generally, a smoothie alone just doesn’t quite cut it. Sure, it makes a nice dent, but it isn’t going to be enough to keep you full until lunch. This is where the genius of the bowl comes in. You’ve seen them. C’mon now, don’t be shy. You’ve walked past the hippe “health bar” where the guy with dreds flashes you a peace sign as he digs in to something purple […]

baboua-ganush

Sounds like gibberish, right? I promise it doesn’t taste like gibberish! Actually, I’m not entirely sure what gibberish tastes like, but I can guarantee you that if it tastes like this, you’ll eat the whole bowl. What is it, you ask? Well, let me tell you. It’s a roasted eggplant dip that is so creamy and roasty you’ll think it’s unhealthy for you. It’s that good. I can very clearly remember the first time I had baba ganoush. But the […]

  Hi Magic Bullet Heads, Although I’ve never been a huge liquor drinker, my friend recently turned me onto Bushmills Irish Honey– a special blend of Bushmills Original whiskey and real Irish honey. Not only does it mix perfectly with ginger ale (one of my all-time favorite sodas), but it also carries way less of a punch than straight whiskey. If you are like me and sometimes gag at the smell of liquor, there’s a chance that Bushmills Irish Honey […]

By Diana Siegel   Founded by Fred Lebow in 1970, the New York City Marathon is the largest marathon in the world. What began as a quadruple loop around Central Park with less than 150 runners has, over the course of forty-one years, grown into a 5-borough journey that draws nearly 50,000 competitors from a lottery of over 100,000 applicants.   The race takes place annually on the first Sunday in November. While thousands compete, millions line the streets to […]

pizza_4

We eat a lot of pizza here in our little house. Sometimes we buy it from the place down the street that makes pizzas so big they put costco’s to shame. But most of the time we make it. Why? because in the time it takes to heat up your oven you can have ooey gooey cheesy saucy goodness dribbling down your face hot and fresh and made with whatever you want to eat. Or in our case, whatever we happen to […]

Mexican-Turkey-Meatballs

So I’ve been really obsessed lately with organic ground turkey, since it’s now available at Costco. Oh, and it’s DELICIOUS. I usually make Italian-style meatballs, or even just turkey burger patties, but today as I was gazing out into the gloomy sky and closing the kitchen window against the chill I had a yen for chicken soup. Also, I was craving Mexican food. Put ‘em together and what do you get?! Albondigas! Albondigas is the Spanish word for meatballs, and […]
