NYC Eats: Katz’s Deli

I hope y’all are ready: it’s my first post about my delicious 3 week winter adventure!

We will be starting off in New York City, the first city on my itinerary. As I’m sure you have, everyone has heard of Katz’s Delicatessen one way or another. Whether it was in When Harry Met Sally (you know, that scene.) or when the recipe for their matzo balls was shared with the world (Yes, please!) or when apparently 20 or so women recreated that scene from WHMS and it made Time’s website (see here). Or, you know, in a guide book. I had been to Katz’s once before (in 8th grade) but it was a foggy memory for me. So, obviously, when I ventured to New York for a few days with my parents, we had to stop by Katz’s.

Perfect Party Spinach Dip

Happy Friday! This is the happiest Friday in a while, because I’m finally feeling like I’m kicking this monster of a cold in the butt. And getting over this cold means I’m getting my appetite back– hallelujah! With the Superbowl in a week (Go Broncos!), I’ll be making this spinach dip that’s perfect for any gathering or party and for me stuffing my face.

I found this recipe on AllRecipes a while back, in a time where I was not a spinach dip fan. Yes friends, such a time existed, and it was quite recently. Remember how I keep talking about this housewarming party Shaylyn and I threw back in June (see here and here)? Well that was the event that changed me into a spinach dip lover. Well, a lover of my spinach dip. Read the rest of this entry

The Most Amazing Mixed Nuts

Omg guys. You know I love Martha. Every Christmas, I love her even more because my mom makes the most amazing mixed nut recipe of hers. This is that recipe I spoke of here and promised to share with you. I’m finally following through! This mixed nut recipe from her Hor D’oeuvres Handbook is to die for. My mom has been making it for years and I finally decided I should learn how to make it.

Okay enough raving about nuts, I’ll just share it with you.

2013 Highlights

First of all, HAPPY (late) NEW YEAR! So, on New Year’s Eve 2012, I posted a bunch of highlights from the year. I was so prepared. And for NYE 2013, I was in Paris and well on my way to a cheese and Champagne-induced coma. Sooo.. I wasn’t prepared. But, better late than never, right?

Let’s take a gander at all the delightful things 2013  threw my way!
