Slowly but surely eating my way through the five boroughs and the rest of the world.

11 Tangy, Sweet And Refreshing Lemonade Recipes | Kitchen Daily

Took a quick trip to the beach last week and squeezed in a meal at Hooked. Excellent change of pace from the typical beach fare-ooey gooey crab dip with old bay chips, kale chips that give the right amount of crispy bite and flavor, and fabulous calamari. Would have taken more pictures but my dinning companion was getting restless. Super kid friendly and loads of non-fried fresh local sustainable goodies if that’s what you’re in to. 

Russ and Daughters Cafe. Everything was amazing. Not pictured but a must are the homemade seltzers and shrub drinks. I was introduced to shrubs by a food author I worked for. She swore by them and I tend to agree. I thought they were a lost art but, like many things traditionally New York, they are alive and well and near perfect at Russ and Daughters. Blintzes were to die for, Farmer’s Cheese was like a deconstructed spicy nutty cheese cake, and the Super Hebster is a must.

From Tumblr Food Blog to Published Cookbook:One thought struck me as I flipped through my sister-in-law’s copy of The Forest Feast: Simple Vegetarian Recipes from My Cabin in the Woods. 
This cookbook was made for Tumblr.
I loved the vivid visuals, beautiful typography and elegant simplicity. Later, I discovered this cookbook was partly made from Tumblr. Author and photographer Erin Gleeson (forestfeast​) has blogged “photographic recipe illustrations” on Tumblr since 2011. I’m not a vegetarian, but the visual recipes were so striking, I had to order this cookbook. So far, my wife and I made the cauliflower cheese steaks. They were simply delicious.
