DSC_7964 (1)

Over the summer, my husband and I were at a restaurant in NJ that was serving Barrel Aged Nigroni. David loves Nigronis and had never had an aged version before. He started talking to the bartender and you know when you meet one of those people that is just like a kindred spirit, part of the same nerd club as you are, mutual respect type of thing? Well David and the bartender kind of clicked and … [Read more...]

  Its...a...little...dusty...in...here...SNIFF SNIFF. Have you seen this yet? It's an ad for an Chipotle. (It's actually an ad for their app which supposedly promotes sustainable farming.) They are trying to start a dialogue about how we use food in this country and doing it with a very emotionally persuasive film, aren't they?  This week there was this gorgeous Harvest Moon and my … [Read more...]

And that's what is so fun and exciting about all artistic endeavors. You literally … [Read more...]

It was hard to get really good shots … [Read more...]

It's been a while since I did one of these! Today I have an awesome recipe and exciting interview with Isreali/American food blogger Anabelle Harari, otherwise known as your Local Belle. Anabelle has a bit of a different food perspective and as someone who LOVES the Mediterranean diet (with a lower case d, not capital) I thought her delightful food blog and interesting point of view would intrigue … [Read more...]

FOODIE FRIDAY: SUMMER SHANDY.

I should stop pretending Foodie Friday has anything to do with food. Its all about the drinks! BBQ season is upon us, along with copious beer drinking. To quote one friend: "I LOVE BEER."  Who doesn't? I particularly like the summer ales and light beers like Blue Moon. The first time I ever had a Shandy was years ago on vacation in Ibiza- but instead of the typical recipe, they were mixing one … [Read more...]
