Foodie Friday: Inside Chobani Soho.

  I know its Saturday, I'm late with the post. Too bad. I've previously been something of a bah humbug about the Chobani store. I'm more of a Fage girl myself, and why would I need or want to go to a Chobani store? I think I kind of disapproved of Chobani's popularity when I KNOW that Fage is the better yogurt.

It's very easy, not a lot of prep time and it doesnt require that many odd ingredients (just tumeric- you probably have everything else in the house already.) Plus its not spicy... so if you are new to Indian food, its a good … [Read more...]

No Bread- So Let Them Eat Cake!

Kosher for Passover Cheesecake Some of us are unlucky enough to have suffered through years of inedible passover cookies and cakes. Not this year. You can make your own cheesecake! It's so good, you wont miss bread. The great thing about cheesecake on Passover is that you barely have to sacrifice any ingredients to stay true to original recipes. The only place you will run into trouble is with the crust, but this recipe has got you covered: mashed up macaroons! One of the best passover treats mixed with a little butter or margarine and viola- crust! Ingredients: Crust: 2/3 of 1 … [Read more...]
