June 29, 2012 By: Serena Category: Cheese, FunFactFriday

Happy Friday, Noshers!  It sure is scorchin’ here in NYC today! How are things in your neck of the woods? This weekend I will be celebrating my birthday (happy birthday to me!) :) and doing a bit of traveling. What are your weekend plans?

Today’s fun fact relates to my favorite food group of all time –

Artisanal Cheese

June is National Dairy Month.

I love dairy – especially CHEESE!  Have you checked out my Artisanal cheese posts? What are you waiting for?

Have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Tuesday, Noshers! Just a drive-by post here – guess what I’m bringing to work today?

A surprise for my coworkers – hope they like it!  Would you like to surprise your coworkers as well (or treat yourself, haha)? Check out my original blog post with this fruit tart recipe – one of the very first posts I wrote years ago!

Happy Monday!! (well, it’s all relative, right?)  I thought I’d kick off the week with some food highlights from my delicious weekend!  Are you ready? :)

I started my weekend in Chicago, so of course I had to have Garrett Popcorn Chicago Mix – they have a store in NYC, but I only purchase Garrett Popcorn in Chicago!

Garrett's Popcorn

I also had to have a Chicago-style hot dog (and a chili cheese backup) from Portillo’s:

Fun Fact Friday

Happy FRIIIDAY, y’all!  I’m writing this post from my hotel room in Chicago (in town for a few days for work!), where I have a lovely view of the Chicago River – gorgeous!  What plans to you all have for this weekend? I will be meeting some lovely friends for dinner tonight, attending a graduation party tomorrow, and meeting a friend for an early birthday brunch on Sunday. Phew – what a busy few days; good thing it’s all fun stuff!

I learned this fun fact years and years ago when learning about the Ancient Egyptians!

honey cornbreadHoney plays an important role in my recipe for honey cornbread!

Honey is the only food that will never spoil – in fact, edible honey has been found in Ancient Egyptian tombs.

What’s your favorite way to eat honey? I love to add it to Greek yogurt!

The first thing we noticed were that there were only two of us, and about 8 things we wanted to try on the menu:
