Cheap Eats: Windsor Dim Sum Cafe

Like many couples, The Russian and I relish the evenings when we’re both free so we can have date night.  We were both feeling something different, and decided on Windsor Dim Sum Cafe in Chinatown. While The Russian has actually spent time in China, I’ve never had Dim Sum before, and I figured it was…

Tasty Travel: The Pub, Fort Lauderdale

Last week, The Russian and I went to Fort Lauderdale, Florida with some friends.  It was wonderful.  Beach, sand, friends, and nothing but time to catch up on some Game of Thrones reading. My friend has some property connected to the Marriott Harbor Beach, so the backdrop for said reading was just wonderful. I was…

Game of Thrones Recipe: Lasagna

Last week, there was no Game of Thrones, and the world shed a tear. Since no Game of Thrones is still not a good enough reason to starve, I still cooked dinner on Sunday, a crowd–pleasing meal that’s easy and fun to make: Lasagna. While this recipe was inspired by Emeril’s Lasagna Recipe on Food…

Game of Thrones Recipe: Simple Fried Chicken

This week I decided to keep it simple while enjoying Game of Thrones by making my mother’s recipe for fried chicken.  It was a good idea. Besides, using your hands and tearing food apart with your teeth is so Game of Thrones–y.   Ingredients: 1 package party drumettes [$5] Flour, all purpose [$2] Veg. oil…

We’re off on the Road to Rhode Island…

As I’ve mentioned before, I graduated last Friday. As a treat and to get out of town for a minute, me and The Russian headed up to Newport, RI. Just a brief overview of our actives in town: The drive only took about 1 1/2 hours and we were a world away.  The Russian, being…

Game of Thrones Recipe: Fish Tarts

It’s pretty safe to say that last night was one of the best Game of Thrones episodes I have ever seen. Ever.  It was thrilling. I decided to go with my take on a medieval surf and turf: fish tarts and grilled sausages. Of course I got the recipe for the tarts from A Feast…

Blogging and its effects on the Boston food community

Kristen Fenton, who writes Indulge Inspire Imbibe, began her food blog on a whim. “I lived in the North End and I was constantly being asked for restaurant recommendations … I just decided to put it online if everyone was asking. It is a nice place to also document the photos I was taking, Fenton…

Spending some quality time with my Game of Thrones Hero

I was lucky enough (and The Russian too, he rides my coattails everywhere 😉 ) to spend some time with Chelsea Monroe–Cassel the other day, author of A Feast of Ice and Fire and blogger at Inn At The Crossroads.  For someone who loves Game of Thrones, this woman is practically the messiah.  She really…

Cheap Eats: Taco Tuesday at La Verdad

I’ve been going to La Verdad for a while. It’s kinda sad I haven’t written about this before.  I guess on some subconscious level I don’t want the world knowing, for fear La Verdad will turn into Ken Oringer’s other impossibly–hard–to–get–a–seat incredible hotspot Toro.  I can’t have that. I need these tacos. So La Verdad…
