Homecoming

As Jackie mentioned, it’s been a while since we updated the blog and so much has happened, but restarting this blog is timely for both of us. In the time we have been away from the blog, I have been physically away from home; I have been away for seven years. I have lived in Media…

We’re back!

After a five (yes FIVE) year hiatus, we’ve decided to bring the band back together to talk about delicious food, tradition, current events and eating out. Because, quite frankly, the world is a scary place and we could use a positively delicious reprieve. What’s changed since we’ve last wrote? We’ve both changed jobs about a bazillion…

Snow Day Nosh

When the weather outside is frightful, make quiche. Maybe I’ll post a recipe. Maybe I’ll just leave you wondering about all the clean-out-the-fridge goodness I packed into this tasty pie crust.

Review: Parc, Philly

Brunch. Parc. Amazing. Do it. Seriously, this might have been one of the most perfect brunches, ever. Parc is situated across the street from picturesque Rittenhouse Square in Center City Philadelphia. Way back in 2012, I was working on a campaign and had supporter housing which had me walking most mornings through Rittenhouse Square. And well…

PSA: Go Eat Cheese from 320 Market + Updates

I interrupt your Saturday night internet browsing to tell you to go eat cheese from 320 Market Cafe. This is an unlikely endorsement considering I’m allergic to milk, but about once a month I indulge in some cheese. I am not really good at selecting cheeses. A lot of friends of mine are good at…

Sloppy Joes featuring Vesper Bros. Signature Tomato Sauce

This recipe is also published on Fig West Chester. A few months ago, some friends and I were sitting around lamenting about food and cooking. My one friend said she loves to cook, but cooking big meals for just her and her daughter seemed silly. I chimed in that I love to cook, but as…

Maple Bacon Cupcakes

Adapted from Maple Cupcakes in Vegan Cupcakes Take Over the World. The concept of the Maple Bacon Cupcake is not original. I didn’t know this until I sat down to write this blog post. A lot of people have made this cupcake, but they seem to just put bacon bits into the batter or they…

Vitamix Refreshing Mint Lemonade

This week, one of my culinary dreams came true. I recently got a full-time job and I did some serious budgeting to be able to buy myself a Vitamix. I have had many battles with my blender in the past, so this Vitamix is truly a dream come true. I have a rare morning off…

Homage to Sunnyside Farms – Banana Ice Cream

When I was a little girl, my family and I would take trips to a place called Sunnyside Farms. It was a farm that had acres of land and stinky cows. Though they did smell, I remember their smell fondly. You couldn’t smell it until you got on that stretch of road that led out-of-town…

Chickpea and Sundried Tomato Basil Salad

AND I’m a liar. No, I’m not a liar. I said I’d be here posting recipes when the mood struck me and it struck, so here I am. Yesterday I went to this Asian Market in Media that sells flowers and produce and other things you’d find at an Asian market. Someone told me about…

Summer Break

Hello, all. Welp, it seems summer has arrived early…again. And due to the nature of my kitchen, I usually take the summers off from posting recipes because once I’m finished cooking I am usually sweating as much as someone who just took a Bikram Yoga class. As a matter of fact, I have seriously considered…

Limoncello Ristorante – West Chester, PA

I am, admittedly, a border dweller. I am from New Jersey, but my home is in Media. I recently started working in West Chester. Since I am going to be spending a lot of time here, my Fig Media editor decided it would be a great idea for us to have lunch together and have…
