The contest has ended for this month. Come on back next month for a new “Top 5″! Check out Top 5 Herbs winner here. Spring hasn’t exactly sprung yet here in Brooklyn. The trees are still bare and are showing no signs of sprouting anything. Even the crocuses, let alone the daffodils, remain mostly tuberly […]

Ever have one of those weekend nights that you just cannot figure out what to eat? It’s not because you’re not hungry or that you don’t really feel like cooking, but more because you’ve been lucky to have eaten so many diverse flavors throughout the week and just can’t get your tastebuds to want anything? […]

File this one under “utter fabrications told to you by older sibling and believed for too long”. I must have been very young when my sister (15 months my senior) informed me that I should be wary of eating my grandmother’s suet dumplings because suet was the gooey material supporting bovine eye-balls. Quite where she got this […]

Perhaps the day that both our teams (Manchester United & Philadelphia Eagles) won unlikely decisive victories in the realm of competitive sports, is the best day to dwell on the recent personal glory of our seafood soufflés staying up. However – even if (quite sensibly) you don’t give a rat’s ass about sports – anyone […]

I feel kinda cheesy. I admit it, I feel cool about using a butcher. I understand this is lame and that butchers have been around for ages, but, truthfully, in the recent year, we’ve really gotten to know our neighborhood butchers. Growing up in the ‘burbs, meat was only bought pre-cut and pre-packaged. Yes, every […]

A month or so ago we bought a package of veal liver at our local grocery store telling ourselves that we going to cook them, but not really having any idea how. We’ve made veal kidneys before without relying on a recipe so we were convinced we could do the same with the beast’s liver, […]

So, after much typing and drooling over pictures, I bring you this week’s round-up of Weekend Herb Blogging. ENJOY! Cleveland’s own Yasmeen from Health Nut brought back memories of her childhood with her fabulous looking Green Parathas, made with spinach and fresh fenugreek. Her version contains wheat germ which adds another level of healthiness to […]

Hey,We Are Never Full readers. We haven’t been posting as frequently or visiting other sites because, well, we’re on vacation. We are in California for the next week but brought our laptop to attempt to blog a bit. As you all know – when you’re on vacation, blogging just isn’t a priority. But we have […]

As one of the biggest grilling weekend just passed (Memorial Day in the US), we thought, why not throw up another grillable meal? How about this “deconstructed souvlaki” we threw together recently? Ok, so souvlaki is traditionally made with pork and it’s always skewered, but if you order “ena souvlaki pita” in Greece you’ll supposedly […]

I feel like we go on and on ad nauseam about our trip to Italy last summer, and I suspect that if it hasn’t happened already, our faithful readers will begin to tire of our constant references to those halcyon days of pastoral bliss, romantic nuptials, and devastatingly good food. So, before your goodwill towards […]

There are a handful of things that have made Genoa famous, amongst them pesto and Christopher Columbus. Interestingly, in all the many, many stories told by Scheherazade (to persuade the emir not to have her killed) in the Arabian Nights, the only European city to be mentioned is Genoa. And, when you visit the city […]

There are some things that just strike you as being astonishingly simple, yet brilliantly devised. For example, the interface of an iPod- the way you use it – is unbelievably clever in its design. One “wheel” and one button, and that’s it. Everyone – even me – can figure it out in about 8 seconds. […]
