CK and I both eat a ton of yogurt in a variety of forms and flavors so when given the opportunity I jumped at the chance to taste test Olympus’s product line. When the shipment arrived I was bowled over by the variety of products the company made. There was the usual compliment of 0%, 2%, and full-fat Greek […]

I found this recipe several months ago and wanted to wait to try it when strawberries were actually in season in Massachusetts. Lately though it appears that everyone has been on a strawberry posting binge. Everywhere I look it’s strawberry this and strawberry that and I just couldn’t stand to wait anymore so I bought […]

Height. Volume. Luster. These are usually adjectives that we use to describe what we wish our hair looked like on a daily basis (see Blake Lively for a real life example) but in this instance I experienced all three of these lovely words in conjunction with a muffin and it appears I owe it all […]

I have a strange affinity for bran. I believe it stems from spending time with my grandfather when I was very young. He would eat cereals like Raisin Bran, Grape Nuts, and Bran Flakes for breakfast and I wanted to be just like him so I would request a bowl too. Except I didn’t want […]

Review: Rachel’s “Relax” Vanilla Chai Yogurt

May 29, 2008

CK brought this Rachel’s Yogurt home for me. Do you think he’s trying to tell me something? “Relax” you say? What’s that?! If it really did chill me out I’d buy a case. Maybe two. Sadly, this definitely didn’t do anything of the sort as it unfortunately had a very unpleasant almost chalky taste to […]

Mushroom Stroganoff

January 8, 2008

I don’t know about the rest of you, but after spending the last few weeks literally gorging myself on wine, cheese, chocolate, more wine, dip, crackers, wine again, and then some beer I’m starting to feel like I need to promptly go to a spa, a yoga retreat, the gym, and possibly rehab. So to […]

Cooks Illustrated Chicken Tikka Masala

August 14, 2007

Last weekend, Chris and I had lunch with our friend Anna at a restaurant called Bukhara in Jamaica Plain. It was insanely delicious and not only did I eat my own food, but I also liberally sampled everyone elses’ selections as well. You’ve been warned, don’t let me loose on a plate of fresh naan. […]
