Happy post-Thanksgiving Hump Day, Noshers! Well, “happy” is taken with a grain of salt following a shortened work-week, isn’t it? Today I wanted to share some Instagram images of the Nosh family Thanksgiving. Every year, my extended family gathers at my aunt’s place for a gut-busting meal of traditional Turkey-day dishes as well as our “fusion” Asian additions. This year was no exception. As is tradition, you can see in the first photo that my Uncle H is in charge of carving the turkey and the whole roast baby suckling pig (yes, we get a turkey AND a whole pig), much to the delight of the kidsters.
All the food is set up on my Aunt F’s kitchen island – I couldn’t fit it all in one photo, but you get the idea. Clockwise from the left corner, that is Chinese mushrooms, noodles, turkey, mixed roasted vegetables, sweet potatoes with marshmallows, the very edge of the container containing homemade Swedish meatballs, asparagus, cranberry sauce, roasted baby pig, hoisin sauce, and shrimp: Continue reading »
Happy Pre-Thanksgiving, Noshers! Ever since I posted this recipe for salted caramel pie two years ago, it has been one of the most-searched posts on the BAN blog. Considering I won a company bake-off with it and the fact that it’s SUPER EASY, I thought it would be perfect for those procrastinators among you who, like myself, are still searching for that perfect Thanksgiving dessert. Enjoy!

I had previously mentioned that I made a salted caramel pie for the Pie Party Live potluck, and a few readers asked me to share the recipe – so here you are! I first saw this recipe in my latest copy of Food & Wine magazine, who in turn was given the recipe from simplethings sandwich & pie shop in LA. With only 7 ingredients and a minimum of steps, I know this pie had the potential to be easy and delicious. And I was right! It was so fun and exciting when a few foodie personalities I “knew” online came up to me during the party to tell me how much they liked the pie. Would you like to try some salted caramel pie for your own? You won’t regret it!

Happy Monday, Noshers! I am super excited that it is Thanksgiving week! Yes, I know the holiday is only one day long, but why limit yourself? In my family, the holiday means giving thanks for family, loved ones, food, and sweatpants. Yes, sweatpants. We take this occasion seriously. Today I’m excited to share the first of several holiday GIVEAWAYS I’ll be hosting until the end of the year. I’m happy to share the holiday cheer with you all, as long as you’re happy receiving it!
Today’s giveaway is sponsored by… Continue reading »
NEW YORK TASTE!!! One of my favorite events to cover every year – with over 40 chefs from amazing NYC restaurants, the evening was a food-fan’s dream come true. I was lucky enough to cover the 2013 event last week (my third time attending NY Taste!), and I’m super excited to share a recap with you. Warning – tons of pictures ahead. You’re okay with that, right? I thought so. Let’s get started!
As you can see below, I had a ton of eating ahead of me: Continue reading »
Happy Monday, Noshers! I know I’ve been a bit MIA lately – things have been a little hectic in the NoshGirl world! But I am SUPER excited to be attending New York Taste 2013 this evening – I’m totally going to stop by Dominque Ansel’s table tonight and ask for my cronut (ha! a girl can dream). I’ll be live-tweeting and posting photos from the event, so if you’re not following me on twitter or instagram yet, what are you waiting for?
Today’s post is a bit random – recently a Nosher asked me via twitter what I eat for lunch every day. I wish I could tell you I have fantabulous five-course lunches every day, but a rushed (hopefully delicious) meal, eaten at my desk anywhere between 12pm and 4:30pm is more the reality. I’m not the only one, right? But Noshers ask, and NoshGirl delivers – below is a photo-summary of a work-week of lunches:
Pret-a-Manger sent me a few gift cards to check out their fall soups – so of course I had to try their Mac & Cheese with Sausage. Okay…that’s not really a soup….at all. But it was found in the soup section, so that counts right? Aaaaanyway, I’m sticking with it – with cheddar, Monterey jack, Gouda, and Italian sausage, this mac & cheese was hearty and filling. Supplemented with a yogurt and granola pot because I loooove yogurt and granola. Crisp clear photo courtesy of the HTC One I’m trying out for a few weeks!
