A New Food Trend: Goat Cheese

There is a new food trend I’ve been noticing everywhere lately: goat cheese. Goat cheese is exactly what it sounds like, cheese that is made from the milk of a goat rather then the milk of a cow. But what makes it different and where did it come from?

The first time I had goat cheese is while I was living in Barcelona. I went to a local restaurant there, called Milk, for brunch one morning. I’m not big on breakfast foods, so I ordered off the limited lunch menu they offered. I got a salad that included chicken, beets, and …

 

NY Eats

Last Friday, I visited the Big Apple for a day trip. The options for good eats in NYC are endless – so many, that it would probably take me years to blog about all the delicious restaurants, bakeries, food trucks that I’ve tried and would like to try.

World Dessert Tour

“When in Rome, do as the Romans do” is a popular idiom meaning when you are visiting a different place or culture, you should try to follow their customs and practice.

Sweet & Savory

If you don’t know this about me already, I have a huge sweet tooth; I love making and eating desserts. Some of my friends, however, are on the other end of the taste spectrum; they enjoy savory foods so much more. For a long time now, chefs have been experimenting different ways for those who want the best of both worlds. Let me share with you my experiences with sweet *and* savory foods that were intriguing, memorable, and surprisingly, tasty!

Trader Joe’s Frozen Steel Cut Oatmeal a Great Start to My Day!

 
I don’t know what made me buy Trader Joe’s Frozen Steel Cut Oatmeal but when I looked at the calorie count and the nutritional guide on the side of the box, I thought it was worth a try.  After buying one box, I went back to stock up my freezer with this handy good for you breakfast which tastes better than what I was having for breakfast before!
 
So now, I go stock up on the frozen oatmeal, get home take it out of the box and put in the freezer.  My problem is that it is not always in stock …

 

Ode to Trader Joe’s Candy Cane Joe-Joe’s See You in November!

While on a checkout line at Trader Joes, I noticed a woman who only had boxes of Candy Cane Joe-Joes in her cart and her comment to me was that she wasn’t crazy but the cookies were great and you have to stock up on them during the holiday season!
My next trip back to Trader José’s, I bought a box, tried them went back and bought several more  boxes, brought a box over to daughter and hid a box to save when they were no longer on the shelves at Trader Joe’s.
