Homemade Ginger Ale

Thursday, April 29, 2010

Finally! We moved, but it’s not all smooth sailing yet. We’re living out of boxes and we don’t have a kitchen yet. While our perfect kitchen is being built (which we will be talking about soon), I’m going to have to get crafty. I do have many plug-in appliances (rice cooker, toaster oven, panini press, […]

Kopi Luwak – aka Cat Poo Coffee (Give-Away)

Monday, April 26, 2010

Kopi Luwak was once thought of as an urban legend. In 2007, it was featured in The Bucket List, as one of the important things to do/drink before you die. Now, popularly known as the most expensive coffee in the world, it has certainly become a talking piece among coffee drinkers. Having seen prices on […]

Japanese Knotweed Cocktail and Bottle Stopper Give Away

Wednesday, April 21, 2010

I grew up in New York City, so I’m not that familiar with foraging. But, presented with the idea of a guided tour to forage through a park and then cook the goods, I was curious. Despite complete trust in my friend Marc of No Recipes, I still had to double check. “Marc, I’m not […]

Your Own Coffee Blend

Saturday, April 17, 2010

I love 100% pure Kona coffee from Hawaii. (Do not fall for Kona blends with just small amounts of Kona.) For a long time, it was my “house” coffee, and it drew friends from near and far, seriously. I had friends who would ask if they could stop by for a cup of coffee. Starting […]

Due to fortunate and unfortunate circumstances, I ended up on the same flight to Orlando with Carol, aka NYCityMama. Neither of us were originally scheduled for that flight but prior to the official beginning of festivities, I already had a new friend. We arrived at the hotel with under 20 […]

Tea Cups and Coffee Mugs

Friday, April 9, 2010

Have you ever thought about the shape and size of your tea cup or coffee mug? There was this one time in band camp…no, no, no. I’m really talking about just used as is, exactly what it was meant for, sipping a hot cup of tea, drinking your morning Joe, or warming your hands around […]
