Cherry Pie

  Cherries have been in season for a 2-3 months now. This means that every week, I buy a container of cherries. Over the next 48 hrs, the average time it takes me to eat a container of cherries, I think “I should make cherry pie”. I love pies and I love cherries which means […]

Sant'Agostino Market - Milan, Italy - Tomatoes and Beans

  I love the summer time. Besides enjoying the sun and the beach, I love going to open air markets without having to don rain boots or snow gear. I realize this will sound ridiculous but I’m also incredibly excited that I can finally eat tomatoes again, fresh tomatoes of course. This absolutely mundane fruit/vegetable […]

Teenage Boy was the other inspiration for this blog (as you probably guessed from the name he’s a teenage boy).

The Chocolate Room - Brooklyn 2

What would we do without good friends? I mean, truly great friends, the kind of friends that won’t sleep with your man… the ones that will put up with you and all of your faults. The friends that you can, not talk to for two months or two years, and it still feels like you […]

Since we are on the topic of jams, jellies, and marmalades, it’s only right that I share my favorite jam with you all. Rigoni di Asiago! This beautiful Italian brand produces certified organic jams amongst other things. Still relatively hard to find in the United States, for me trips to Milan are synonymous with trips […]

I think it’s happened to us all, when more or less you have an idea of what something means, but not like 100%. For me that was the world of preserves – jams, jellies, and marmalades (amongst other things). Things that I really love, and since I was all obsessed with getting this Victorian Sandwich […]

Victorian Sandwich - low res

The other dish I made for Mr. Big’s birthday was a Victoria Sandwich Cake. It’s pretty cute, he always scarves down half of the cake in minutes, usually leaving me just a little sliver.  This usually happens when I step out of the room for just a few minutes.  Whenever I come back to see […]
