Asian Beef Tacos with Cabbage Slaw

Sometimes having a good friend over for dinner can be stressful. You want to impress them (obviously), but you don’t want to be slaving away while they’re sitting on your couch awaiting your latest dating gossip. The trick to really winning the at-home dinner date is having everything pre-prepared so all you need to do

Pasta with Fresh Corn Pesto and Basil

Yesterday I ventured to the Union Square Farmers Market to pick up a few ingredients for a recipe that I found in Bon Appetit magazine. Once again the myriad of tents filled to the brim with fresh fruits and vegetables had everything I was looking for…and more. Instead of buying an overpriced bunch of basil

Kosher Chicken with Black Bean Sauce

I came home today and craved my favorite dish from my favorite Chinese restaurant. In Newton, there’s an amazing posh Chinese place called Bernard’s. Bernard’s is elegant and serves true Chinese cuisine. The best dish that they serve is that Chicken with Black Bean Sauce. It is served in a piping hot stone pot, almost

Classy Eggplant Parmigiana

Today I want to talk eggplant parmesan. This is not eggplant parm that you pick up at the next door hoagie place. It is not too dry or too greasy. It is not deep fried in a vat of day old oil. It is also not covered in any sort of fake, Kraft sliver of

Canned Soup: from Blah to Voila!

This is the enemy… Canned soup takes about 5 minutes to cook. The hardest part is probably opening the can. Just open, pour and heat. You don’t even need to add water anymore. The convenience of the soup in a can is extraordinary. Even for clean up- you just have to wash one dish. However,

A Review of Momofuku Milk Bar NYC

Last night after seeing the hilariously funny movie, The invention of lying, Whitney and I decided that despite already consuming movie treats, we wanted something sweet. A friend suggested Momofuku Milk Bar. Milk Bar? I was particularly skeptical because the only milk I consume is Lactaid and that’s a very infrequent occurrence as it is.

What do you Crave when You’re Very Hungry? A Yom Kippur Tribute to Food

A Yom Kippur Food Tribute… Right now I am very hungry, more hungry than I have been in a long time. It has been 21 hours since I have eaten and I have about four more to go. It’s funny how four hours can seem like an eternity. I don’t know why I thought this

Nosh and Tell Journeys: A Boston Brunch at Henrietta’s Table

I need to start out this post by saying that I am fasting for Yom Kippur. I haven’t eaten anything since 6:15 last night and can’t eat until 7:15 tonight. For someone like me who loves food and loves even more to constantly eat just for the sake of eating, this is EXTREMELY DIFFICULT. I

Penne with Balsamic Brown Butter

Hello everyone!!! So sorry that I have been MIA for so long. Ditto to everything Whitney has said. Sometimes life just gets crazy, but I’m SO glad to be back! The good news is that we survived the first two weeks of school- academics, mental breakdowns, oven fires and all. Will we survive the next

Rel’s Ravenous Review of Bubby’s Brunch

Ahhh Brunch. The truly perfect meal; it sits delightfully between breakfast and lunch, allowing you to sleep late and eat twice as much. You can order eggs or french toast or a greasy cheeseburger. You can sip on hot coffee or nurse your hangover from last night with a mimosa or bloody mary. No judgements
