Recipe: Plum Coffee Cake

It’s no secret that I’m not the best at baking, mostly because I shy away from trying it. It intimidates me. When I saw this post from StrawberryPlum, however, I had to try it. I love coffee cake, and, ironically, how well it pairs with tea. Figured I’d give it a go, I mean, it’s…

Cheap Eats: Cutty’s

Even though it’s unofficially summer, it’s still kinda cold and rainy this week. No matter, as soon picnic weather will be upon us, and what’s better for a picnic than a sandwich you don’t have to make? Not much guys, not much. Cutty’s is an awesome sandwich shop in Brookline that has gotten rave reviews…

Recipe: Sautéed Veal with Corn and Tomatoes

Summer is slowly but surely coming upon us, and I have discovered a gem. Wegman’s, an upstate New York grocery chain, has opened a location in Chesnut Hill. Oh man, is it worth the drive. The selection and quality of my groceries has skyrocketed, as this store is a monster. Literally huge and filled with…

Recipe: Pork Schnitzel

Being a food blogger sometimes has some major perks. Like opening my door to a box full of bags of free Pretzel Crips. Awesome. After mowing my way through a few of the packages, I decided it would be cool to cook with the pretzels in a different way. What’s a better way to use…

Cheap Eats: @Union

Who doesn’t love brunch? No one, that’s who. I personally love breakfast foods without having to wake up at breakfast times (read: before noon). That’s why I’m happy to live in a college town; I’m not alone in these beliefs. I’m also not alone in being frugal (read: broke), and when I heard about @Union,…

Recipe: Roast Beef and Endive

Now that springtime is FINALLY here (for a while there I thought winter would never end), its time for fun light salads that are easy to make and fill you up after a run, or in my case, a challenging yoga class. Endive is a great lettuce, totally under-utilized if you ask me, so I…

Recipe: Greek Style Shrimp and Feta

This recipe is awesome. I made this for The Russian when we first started dating, and I’m still making it. Every so often he’ll get a gleam in his eye and ask me to make him this dish. It’s that memorable. It’s also that simple. Juicy shrimp, salty feta, and a hearty tomato sauce is…

Cheap Eats: Fried Scallop Sandwich @ Bento

It’s a lazy Friday kinda day, at least for me, and I’ve needed one. I’ve been working myself crazy in the kitchen, and loving every second (not the same can be said for my feet, however). On my days off, I get a little lazy, because I’m pretty active on the days I work. Sometimes…

Repost: Budget Friendly Alternatives to Expensive Ingredients

A friend showed me this article by BuzzFeed the other day, and I just had to share it. Frugal Foodie is all about finding cheap ways to make food taste wonderful, so this article is in the same vein as this blog’s philosophies. Check it out! -L Photo via BuzzFeed
