When I first started blogging on ErinCooks several years ago I couldn’t seem to find many food blogs that were local to the Boston area. There was of course the gorgeous and food fairytale like images of La Tartine Gourmande to drool over but otherwise I mostly read blogs that were based in other areas […]

CK and I just dragged ourselves home from the annual brouhaha that is the Harvard Square Mayfair. Along with our good friend Anna, we essentially ate our way through block after block of tempting festive food vendors. Everywhere you looked there was something edible: sausage, french fries, kettle corn, ice cream, burgers, pakoras, and even […]

Review: Recipe of the Week: Ice Cream and a Cookie Dough Ice Cream Recipe

June 2, 2008

Sally Sampson’s newest cookbook, Recipe of the Week: Ice Cream, is going to get me into a lot of trouble.  Specifically, trouble with buttons not closing, pants not fitting, and no-doubt many a ruined appetite for dinner.  Ice cream is my Achilles heel.  I walk by the neatly frozen pints in the freezer case with […]

Erin Cooks the Internet: May 23, 2008

May 23, 2008

Because I don’t have enough useless tools and strange boxed mixes in my kitchen, Williams-Sonoma has gone and tempted me with the notion that I can make Animal Crackers at home. I just don’t think I could possibly be happy until I have a herd of lions, tigers, and bears prancing on my snack plate. […]

The Sausage Guy

April 30, 2008

I went to my first Red Sox game last night with CK and his co-workers. No, not of the season. This was my first Fenway Park experience ever! Yes, I’ve lived here for three years now and I’d never been to a game. And boy did I live it up. I ate and drank everything […]
