Fresh Produce of Palmyra 

About three years ago, my mother bought a house in Palmyra, NJ. We live in close proximity to a supermarket, which sits in the opposite direction of Fresh Produce of Palmyra. I am not sure how or when she found the delightful gem because she’s an avid supermarket shopper, but on several of our lengthy phone…

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…

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…

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…

Turkeyburger Helper

Sometimes I crave gnarly foods. Today’s craving is Hamburger Helper and the craving hit me on the way to the parking lot. I started a new job and this week I’m in training, so I’ve been dutifully taking my lunches because I don’t know what there is to eat there and when I arrive home…

Interview with Rock Star Pasty Chef Chantal Carter – Part One

Life has a fascinating way of bringing people together. The cosmos brought Rock Star Pastry Chef Chantal Carter and I together through our mutual love of makeup. We’re both part of a covert gathering of makeup lovers that we’re not even supposed to talk about outside of the group. (Think Fight Club, but with makeup)…

New on State Street: 320 Market Cafe

It goes without saying that I will pretty much eat anything. My favorite restaurant in West Chester has a new winter menu that includes rabbit and wild boar. I can’t wait to go back so I can eat all the things. In the meantime, I’m here in Media doing my food blogger thing. Last week…
