Happy (almost) Hump Day, Noshers! I’m definitely thankful for a shortened work week.  What did you do this past Labor Day weekend?  I cooked up a storm, including a huge batch of quinoa (I didn’t know it expanded that much – oops), and I’m definitely enjoying the fruits of that labor this week!

Today, I’m excited to share with you a fun and delicious event that I recently attended – Dinner With Luca, hosted by Grana Padano and MasterChef Season 4 winner Luca Manfé!  I’ve said this multiple times before – if I had to eat only one food for the rest of my life, it would be cheese. I just loooove cheese! So I was super excited to atttend this event, where we learned all about Grana Padano cheese and its three distinct ages: Continue reading »

Fun Fact Friday

pinkberry-1Happy FRIDAY, Noshers!!  I’m kinda bummed summer is almost over (wahhh, sad face) but trying to make a most of these last warm days.  This weekend I will be spending time in the park, perhaps checking out the space show at one of my favorite museums in NYC, and trying to Escape the Room! I’m pretty psyched about my plans.  What do you have on the docket for this weekend?

Today, I’m excited to share a delicious (and for some of you, free(!) fun fact):

Next Monday is National Banana Split Day!  But wait, there’s more – to celebrate, if you stop by Pinkberry next Monday and purchase a medium-sized frozen yogurt, you have a 1 in 10 chance of getting it for FREE!

The above photo is my Pinkberry creation when I unknowingly visited during National Smores Day (as you can see, even though it was Smores day, I favored mango :) ).  They were having the same promotion and I was the lucky 1 in 10!  I’ll definitely be trying my luck again on Monday!

What are your favorite frozen yogurt toppings?

Lobster Party with FreshDirect!

Happy Wednesday, Noshers!  If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that last week I posted this teaser photo:

freshdirect-lobster-1I heart lobsters.

Well, today I’m super excited to share my recent collaboration with FreshDirect – if you live in the NYC-area, you’ve no doubt heard of them (and are possibly a FD enthusiast :) ).

FreshDirect is hosting its annual Lobster Party, a celebration of summer, seafood, and delicious cooking with friends and family!  When they asked whether I’d like to share my lobster preparation experience and tips with all of you Noshers, it took me approximately 2 seconds to say yes.  Hopefully this post will encourage you to host your own lobster party! Hey, if I can prepare a lobster meal in a tiny kitchen, I’m sure you’ll be fine :).

To prepare for my party… Continue reading »

French: Degustation

August 19, 2014 By: Serena


If there’s anything I appreciate when it comes to food (and there are many things I appreciate when it comes to food), it’s the well-thought out tasting menu.  A while back, I had an opportunity to partake in the tasting menu at Degustation, and I wasn’t disappointed.

For the uninitiated, Degustation borrows influences from Iberian, French, and American cuisine to create a delicate, nuanced, and altogether satisfying menu.  The intimate dining room (the restaurant must have had no more than 25 seats) offers an unobstructed view of the open kitchen. I love open kitchen setups in restaurants and given the option, will always pick a seat with a view of it.  So Degustation worked out perfectly for that, as you can see here: Continue reading »

A Sweet and Juicy Night with Zespri Kiwifruit

July 22, 2014 By: Serena


Happy Tuesday, Noshers!  Last week I attended an event focused on one of my favorite (but I feel often overlooked) fruits – the round, fuzzy kiwi.  To be honest, I didn’t really know what to expect when Zespri® Kiwifruit approached me about an event all about the kiwi!  But I’m glad I decided to check it out.
