Lemon Lovin’

lemonade from cooksillustrated.com
Pink or yellow, sweet or sour, fresh or frozen: it doesn’t matter how you spin it, lemonade and summertime go hand-in-hand. I remember sitting at the end of my driveway selling lemonade from a cooler, arguing with my sister about who gets to collect the cash. I was about seven years old and making anything over $10.00 a day was a fortune.

Birthday Cake Pops

It’s my birthday so cake I will eat! In honor of my own big day a cake-gadget had to be in order. Even though turning twenty three isn’t a major milestone like turning twenty one or twenty five, as my father reminded me this morning when he called to wish me a happy day, I still think it’s appropriate to talk about cake today.

But soon enough, greek yogurt worked it’s way into my heart and is now one of my most desired snacks. Chobani is definitely my brand of choice.

Slap Happy

Last week while I was chatting on the phone with my cousin who lives in┬áSalem, MA, she mentioned her newest kitchen gadget that she just can’t get enough of. When I told her that I’d never heard of it she was taken aback. So I did a little research of my own, and I, too, soon became seduced by the wonder of what is the┬áSlap Chop.
A small, handheld device, with a hollow core and a W-shaped blade concealed within the body of the gadget, the Slap Chop minces and dices a plethora of foods. By “slapping” the lever on the …

 

A visit to Boston’s boYo!

Last night, I crashed a blogger’s get together at boYo natural frozen yogurt shop in Boston where a group of foodies got together to meet, talk and try boYo frozen yogurt. What a fun evening it was!
Not only was it fun to put faces with the names of those you follow but to see the serious side and the fun side putting foodies in a candy store can be! I was in the good company of Michelle Collins, The Fussy Eater, Christine Liu,Finance Foodie and the Recipe Can.

Greeted by Lori Peljovich who designed and opened boYo two years ago …
