All Things Thursday: Good and Cheap Edition


Hello Everyone and Happy All Things Thursday!

I hope everyone is alive and well out there. How are you? Ready for Halloween? Scarfing down chocolate candy in bulk? Buying up local/organic/free range turkeys and prepping for Thanksgiving, are we? Awesome! Thought I’d chat you up and share a few things with ya. Let’s get started!

All Things Thursday: Hottest Restaurant in New York Edition

All Things Thursday: Hottest Restaurant in New York EditionBienvenue and Happy All Things Thursday!

I’ve really missed you guys. I have been otherwise engaged for a while, but who cares? I’m here now and that’s all that matters.

Have you heard about the new hottest restaurant in New York City? I bet you can’t guess where it’s located. Well, um…I can’t hear your answers so I’m guessing you all are wrong. The hottest table in the city is located in a dorm at Columbia University. Say what, now?!

All Things Thursday: You’re Whisking Incorrectly Edition

All Things Thursday: You're Whisking Incorrectly EditionHappy All Things Thursday!

So many things have been swirling about my head now that school is finished and summer is here. Here’s just a few:

1. Apparently, America has a whisking problem. The experts at America’s Test Kitchen gives us(and when I write us, I mean most definitely me) a lesson on how to whisk properly. Seriously, I don’t know how to whisk? Thanks ATK for making me feel super-inadequate in the kitchen.

2. Kinda excited about the movie Chef. Jon Favreau is a pretty funny guy and I appreciate that he’s doing a small, non-blockbuster film. Plus, it’s about good food, so…sign me up!

3. Dave and I have an amazing possible opportunity on deck. I don’t want to jinx it so my lips are sealed but if we it works out, it would make for a fantastic summer. Fingers crossed!


Now, onto the food…

This is what happens when you try to take chocolate away from women: Wellesley Fudge Cake. Sifting Focus

Moist Banana Bread with Blueberries? I’m gonna have to say “yes”. Reluctant Entertainer

I need to make Chicken Baked with Herbs and Garlic. Looks easy and tasty. Simply Delicious Food

Seeing how much I love Chinese food, I really should start making it at home: General Tso Cauliflower and Mongolian Beef. Bakeaholic Mama and Table For Two, respectively.

Since I made that splendidly delicious Lemon Velvet Cake I’ve got a hankering to make other types of cake, as well. Perhaps I should start with The Best White Cake Recipe Ever. I Bake He Shoots and Add A Pinch, respectively.


The next few months should be low-key and relaxing. I’m looking forward to a summer filled with interesting books, overworked AC units and vats of Basil Beerade. Should be fun.

How do you plan to spend your summer?


Live, travel, adventure, bless and don’t be sorry.

All Things Thursday: 300 Sandwiches Edition

All Things Thursday: 300 Sandwiches EditionHello Everybody! Happy All Things Thursday! Let’s talk 300 sandwiches.

“You are 300 sandwiches away from an engagement ring!” her boyfriend exclaimed. And so the young lady got cooking. Apparently, after making him #256 she finally got the ring. It sounds like a story I’d want to tell my future children.

 Children: Mommy, how did daddy know you were the one?

Mommy: Well, it’s a beautiful story, kids. You see, your daddy loves sandwiches and…

 Now, about the food…

I’ve got a buddy who’s into all things rhubarb and cocktails. He could do wonders with this Rhubarb Syrup. The Kitchn

After making Vegan Chocolate Avocado Truffles, I’m thinking truffles might be my new thing. As such, these Chocolate Hazelnut Truffles are on deck. Put On Your Cake Pants

Guacamole is the truth, but Spicy Guacamole? Natasha’s Kitchen

Gourmet Spinach Blue Cheese Burgers. Need I write more? One Hundred Dollars A Month

I just want to smash these Triple Vanilla Brownies into my mouth! Classy Cutter


The end of Spring semester is near, my friends. Perhaps, I will celebrate with all of the above. Would you blame me? Until next time…


When you stop doing things for fun, you might as well be dead.
