Homemade Aftershock! Surprisingly easy…
Holy crap, that’ll put some hair on your chest! Chilis from the garden + vodka + time = $*#(@#4!
I cannot wait to get some of these roasted potatoes in my tummy! Salivating just thinking about it!
I’m a procrastinator - Sunday Roast on a Monday!
The temperature plummeted last night (and is going to get even colder tonight), so I thought a traditional Sunday Roast would be just the thing for my Scottish hubby and best friend. I’m thinking: Roast beef for them, butternut squash nut roast for me, Yorkshire puddings, veggies, roasted tatties, and an apple crumble with caramel sauce. Add a fire and some wine and I think you have the perfect way to remedy a case of the Mondays!
That’s what it needed - freshly whipped cream!
Raspberry Linzer Tart. My new sophisticated but simple go to dessert. So easy!
Fresh baked scones, fresh strawberries, and fresh whipped cream. Heaven!
The pickled asparagus was actually really good!
Downton Abbey Viewing & Tea Party! Yes, those are cucumber sandwiches, curried egg salad sandwiches, and scones. I even got some themed items leftover from the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee!
I’ve been going to Tommy’s in Queens since I was a kid, but on my most recent trip back to NYC, there was something new: “The Grandma Slice”.
I had tried one on the first night of my trip near our hotel in LIC simply because it looked amazing (maybe not so much in this picture, where it survived a plane ride), and I was right - it was!
This one is from Tommy’s (though both were incredible, the first didn’t make it back to the hotel like the pie we ordered), and I’m certainly inspired to attempt this at home since I’m over 1,500 miles away from NYC!
