Kiwi with a Flower Center

Tuesday, July 20, 2010

This morning, I woke up really hungry pretty early. Begrudgingly, I slid off the bed sideways and walked towards the kitchen with one eye open and grabbed a kiwi out of the fridge. After peeling it and slicing it, I noticed something unusual. I had to rub my eyes and check again. In my delirious […]

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 […]

Equipment Upgrade

Sunday, November 1, 2009

We are constantly inspired by some of the photography we see.  By other bloggers (like WoR Couple), by friends & family / semi-pro photographers (like Steve, Bill, and Eddie), and by others.  And while we’ve received many wonderful compliments on our improving skills, we realized it was time to upgrade our equipment, it’s not the […]

The Nourishing Kitchen of NYC

Thursday, October 15, 2009

In East Harlem, so far East, on a street I never knew existed (Pleasant Avenue), I almost missed the door with the humble paper sign scotch taped on:
The Nourishing Kitchen of NYC 281 Pleasant Avenue, New York, NY 10029. A class is underway, about 6 seniors from the nearby senior center […]

Try and Try Again

Thursday, July 16, 2009

I remember hating raw tomatoes as a kid. I loved tomato sauce, especially Bolognese, but I couldn’t understand why anyone would eat raw tomato. It was mealy, watery, mushy, and slightly sour all at the same time. Of course, I learned later on, after being convinced to try a good tomato, from my Aunt Sherry’s […]

Cranbury Pizza

Thursday, July 9, 2009

Having traveled all the way to New Jersey with Lon yesterday, I wasn’t going to leave without trying at least one more thing, so we stopped in at
Cranbury Pizza 63 North Main Street, Cranbury, NJ 08512. The two-block main street has such a friendly vibe to it. We walked up with […]

Tripie Crepe Cart

Tuesday, July 7, 2009

Ahh, the sudden turn of summer weather, finally! I’ve been dying to go on some long walks with Lon and our Jack Russell. Sunday afternoon was perfect. I even got to wear my new sunglasses.
We headed South and eventually I got hot and started craving Iced Coffee.  The “Coffee N’ Crepes” sign got my attention […]

Seva

Sunday, July 5, 2009

Tim wanted to take us to a new spot he likes in his neighborhood,
Seva 30-07 34th Street, New York, NY 11103. It’s an Indian restaurant with all the classic entrees but they get a bit inventive with the appetizers. At $3 to $6 per appetizer, we had to try a ton. […]

FoodMayhem Shopping

Friday, July 3, 2009

People often ask us what our favorites products are, what kind of knives to buy, what foods they should try. The most common question is probably, what’s a great gift for a food lover? We’ve been answering these e-mails separately one by one, but we thought it would be great to have a FoodMayhem Market […]
