You know how Carrie Bradshaw is all “hello lover” when it comes to Manolo Blahniks? Well that’s what I said when I saw this Turkey Hill Junior Mint ice cream today in the freezer section of the Porter Square Shaws. I literally stopped in the middle of the aisle and did a double take. Then […]

To the Moon Alice: Pistachio Pudding Rocket Pops

July 4, 2008

Happy 4th of July! These are by far my favorite pops from our “Popsicle Week” adventures. How can you possibly not love anything that looks like a rocket ship?! And they’re green to boot, although I’m quite sure that real aliens probably don’t taste like pistachios. Using these Rocket Pop molds really made me wish […]

Root Beer Float Pops

July 3, 2008

My first batch of Root Beer Float pops bubbled up and created a sticky lava flow all over the frozen broccoli and chicken breasts in my freezer. So you’d think that the second time I made them I’d manage to not repeat the same mistake twice, right? Well, what do you suppose I did two […]

June 30, 2008

As previously promised Popsicle week has at last arrived. Thankfully these pops are awesome because I think I gave myself temporary carpal tunnel syndrome after juicing eight limes by hand with a ridiculously flimsy plastic juicer.

Boloco Summer “Burrito” Knock-Off

June 6, 2008

My friend Melissa and I have a long running complaint about the state of walkable lunch spots near our office. While the hands down favorite is definitely Brown Sugar Cafe, a girl cannot survive on Masaman Curry alone (as much as we might like to). So for the most part I bring my lunch and […]

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 […]

Perfect Mojitos

August 25, 2007

After a marathon shopping trip yesterday afternoon with CK, I left the mall heavily loaded down with bags. The hot sun of the parking lot and the sight of a Cheesecake Factory mere steps away made me long for a mojito. The first mojito I ever had was at The Cheesecake Factory and it was […]
