May is National Burger Month, so I thought I’d share with you where I go for my favorite burgers in the (Greater) Boston area.
Shake Shack recently opened its first shop in Massachusetts, in Chestnut Hill on Route 9. I am a big fan of this NYC chain and made sure I visited the Mass location on grand opening night. It was worth the wait since I haven’t had it in a while. My go-to is the shack stack burger: cheeseburger with crispy fried mushrooms & cheese. The angus beef patty is well-seasoned and cooked to medium. The mushrooms are flavorful. The lettuce …
Happy National French Toast Day! This special food holiday was recently celebrated on November 28. French toast also happens to be my favorite breakfast/brunch item, which is no surprise since I have a big sweet tooth. I’m on a mission to try all the best French toast dishes in the Boston area, and hopefully around the world since it is a dish that is enjoyed in so many countries.
It doesn’t take rocket science to whip up a French toast meal: soak slices of bread in a mixture of beaten egg/milk/cream, fry both sides on a skillet, and finish it off with a sweet topping (i.e. powdered sugar, …
Marshmallow Peeps aren’t just eaten during the Easter holiday; they also make an appearance around this time of the year for Halloween. For anyone who has never heard of or tried a peeps before – they are brightly-colored, sugar-coated marshmallow candies that come in different shapes (i.e. chicks, bunnies, pumpkins, ghosts, etc.). They make perfect toppings on cakes, pies, and in a cup of hot chocolate. They’ve become quite popular too; the company has even opened a few retail stores.
I’ve found that most people either love peeps or hate them. I’m actually not a big fan myself, but I don’t mind the …
This past Columbus Day weekend, I visited Vermont for the first time to see the fall foliage, alpine slide and of course, explore the local good eats. Vermont is famous for the wide variety of cheeses, maple syrup, Lake Champlain chocolates, craft breweries, and Ben & Jerry’s ice cream. Here are the food highlights from my trip – hope you enjoy!
In Stowe, VT, I had dinner at the Solstice restaurant at the Stowe Mountain Resort and ordered the cheese plate from the menu. I picked out three cheeses (all locally made in VT): Cabot Creamery‘s signature cheddar (cow’s milk), Lake’s Edge …

Summertime means bbq‘s in the back yard every night. So finding new things to throw on the grill is a must, because no matter how tasty the burgers and dogs might be you have to add some variety to the mix.
There are so many things you can grill up for dinner from bbq chicken to swordfish steaks to kabobs of peppers and eggplant. I’ve even heard of grilled watermelon as a substitute for a burger. But one of my favorite things to cook on the grill has to be pizza.
Grilled pizza takes practice. You can’t just do …
