June Best Bites

June Best Bites

It was a tasty month, starting with strawberries (jam and shortcake) and ending with blueberries (jam). I had enjoyed Nomad’s soppressata pizza with a drizzle of honey, so I did the same with this Trader Joe’s uncured pepperoni pizza. Until now I didn’t even like pepperoni, because it was neon orange, harsh, and so greasy. But the higher-quality uncured … Continue reading

March Best Bites

March Best Bites

I didn’t cook so much in March for some reason, so relied on Lucy’s and Trader Joe’s to fill in the gaps at home. Sometimes I’d just buy vegetables to go with soups and purchased entrées, and that works well, too, such as adding kale to vegetarian split pea soup from Lucy’s, below.

Best Bites November-Mistral, Estia & more

I had an eventful November, including a very nice Thanksgiving dinner with family at the new Seasons 52 at MarketFair. My “official” review of this new hotspot comes out in a few weeks, I’ve been three times now (counting an early media dinner), and have yet to be disappointed. Others apparently agree, the place was packed … Continue reading

Best Bites for August

Best Bites for August

Time flies and summer is gone! Finito! 86’d! (Okay, not technically until Sept. 22, but still…) Ironically, the first week of September brought our first real heat wave of the summer with high humidity to match temperatures in the high eighties-90° range. UGH! The better weather today made me feel like a kid out of … Continue reading
