Happy Holidays, Noshers!  The past few weeks (and upcoming weeks) have been full of parties, eating, getting-together, and of course general merriment.  What’s on your holiday bakelist? OR more importantly, your holiday eatlist??

Today I’m super excited to be giveaway one of my FAVORITE products from the past year – the Paderno World Cuisine Spiralizer!  If you follow along on the BAN blog, you’ll know that this little device has changed my life.  The Spiralizer has resulted in my eating a lot more vegetables (as a former avowed veggie-averse foodie, this is huge) in the form of “zoodles”, or zucchini noodles.  I’ve also used the Spiralizer to make apple chips, baked potato chips, curly fries and much more. It’s like a Playdoh toy for adults, except the finished product is much more delicious.

But don’t take MY word for it – try it for yourself!  Thanks to the lovely folks at Paderno, I am giving away TWO of the newest Spiralizer model – the four-blade version!  The four-blade Spiralizer was just released in September, and features the newest blade that makes angel hair, yum!

Two of my favorite go-to recipes with the Spiralizer are zucchini noodles with avocado cream sauce: zoodles-avocado-cream-1

As well as zoodles (made with yellow squash) with homemade chicken meatballs and sauce:

There are 4 methods of entry, with the first method (commenting on this blog post) being mandatory and the rest just extra deliciousness!

Review: NatureBox Healthy Snacks!

November 18, 2014 By: Serena

Happy Tuesday, Noshers! It’s a gorgeous but chilly day here in NYC, and hopefully this post will warm your day up a bit! Recently, NatureBox reached out to me to see if I’d be interested in sampling their fall snacks. I had heard of NatureBox before, but hadn’t tried it – however, it combined two of my favorite things: non-bills mail and snacks. So in the name of blogging (okay okay, in the name of I-heart-snacking), I said YES.

For those not familiar with NatureBox, it’s a pretty convenient snack subscription service that delivers a box of healthier, wholesome snacks each month. There is a wide variety to choose from, and many of their options are a fun twist on traditional favorites, such as chili lime pistachios, kung pao pretzels, and salted caramel pretzel pops (omg I SO want to try those!!). There is also a rotating selection of seasonal favorites – and that’s what I got to sample.

I was super excited to see a pretty sizable box arrive in the mail, filled with five full-sized packages of snacks – I eagerly opened up the packaging to see what snacks I got (as a subscriber, you can either choose your snacks or have them surprise you). See for yourself: Continue reading »

Upcoming Event: New York Taste 2014! – November 10

November 05, 2014 By: Serena

Just one of the delicious noms from last year’s event

 Happy Wednesday, Noshers!  Today I’m sharing the details of one of my FAVORITE food events of the year – New York Taste!  This fine food festival is taking place next Monday, November 10th, and I’m ecstatic to be attending for the fourth time.  Now in its 16th year, New York Taste 2014 will feature chefs from over 40 of NYC’s hottest restaurants. Some of the chefs I absolutely must visit this year are David Bouley, Paul Liebrandt, Chef Morimoto, and my personal event fave – Marcus Samuelsson! One of the best things of this event (besides the food) is that the chefs are all available and eager to chat. So much fun!

Proceeds from the event go to City Harvest – do you really need another reason to eat for a good cause?? I always walk (or roll) out of this event completely stuffed, so if you’ve been waiting and waiting to buy tickets for this – DO IT!

General admission tickets are on sale now, or you can get a VIP ticket and let me know what’s in that gift bag ;).

My previous visits to New York Taste:

I really hope to see you there!

Check out the chef line-up – who would you most like to chat up?
