Le Creuset: Grill Pan and Panini Press
A few weeks ago a little birdie (let’s call her Sam) delivered 2 big boxes from Le Creuset to Yummy Bites. I opened up 3 beautiful orange boxes to discover some amazing surprises— a cobalt blue wok, grill pan, and panini press. I’ve been using my grill pan often and I have to say I absolutely love it. It’s been a little getting used to with how to heat it up and brush it...

Another look: Gladys Knight Chicken and Waffles
Did I mention the other delicious bites that were served up at Gladys Knight’s last weekend? Well, here’s my chance— We started off with some fried green tomatoes served with spicy remoulade. One of my favorites whenever it’s on a menu. For sides we had: (L to R) Macaroni and cheese that rivaled the best in my neighborhood (Delilah’s!), collard greens, and...
What’s one of my favorite brunches during the week of Passover? Matzoh Brei, naturally. Unfortunately I didn’t have an salami to throw in it like I had at Zaidy’s in Denver— but it was delish nonetheless. How to make this super easy breakfast dish du jour? Start by filling one bowl with lukewarm water and breaking 3 pieces of matzoh into the water to let them soak for 3-5...
Happy Birthday, Amelia!

Spicy Sticky Chicken Thighs
A few weeks ago we had some chicken thighs on hand— a great, cheaper piece of meat— and I wanted to make something that was sweet and savory. This recipe was simple and super tasty, something I would definitely make again. You probably have all of the ingredients on hand, and if you store some chicken thighs in your freezer you can be prepared for a full meal in a pinch. It’s...
Audrey Claire: My Dinner Go-To
Saturday night an old friend was in town and we planned a spur of the moment dinner. Where else would I go than my favorite restaurant down the block, Audrey Claire? The perfect end to a perfectly beautiful day, we bypassed the long wait and shared some pinot noir at a small table outside on Spruce St. The special flatbread of the day was your basic tomato, basil, mozzarella, but of course at...
Vanilla Pudding Chocolate Chip Cookies
Saturday afternoon some friends were over to watch (and listen to— did anyone else notice those birds?!) the Masters at our apartment. I wanted to try something new but easy so I adapted this recipe, courtesy of Two Peas and Their Pod. I learned recently through these cookies, as well as Busy Day Cake, that adding vanilla pudding into any typical baked good makes it an extra special treat. ...
The Masters Call For a Cheese Plate
Ben and Jessie gave me a great birthday gift this year. Beautiful and useful, they gifted me this Reclaimed Slate Cheese Board and a set of Four Stainless Steel Swissmar Cheese Knives. I love how unique the cheeseboard is— it is made of reclaimed chalkboards and has wine cork feet to prevent scratching a table. I also love the fact that I can write down all the cheese options for my...

A few days ago I saw something on Twitter that really excited me— Top Cheftestant Jen Carroll of 10Arts announced that someone had cancelled a reservation for 2 suckling pigs. Bummer for them, bonus for me. I quickly got together a group of friends and Slip scored us a reservation for Friday night dinner at the luxurious and architecturally stunning Eric Ripert restaurant, located in the...
Baked Eggplant- Veggie Delight!
Lately I’ve been totally craving food from Magic Carpet, a food truck near Penn (36th and Spruce!). They serve up middle eastern vegan food that is super tasty and leaves you wondering how they did it. Well, Magic Carpet uses some of my favorite ingredients, like tahini and hot sauce, so I figured I could try my hand at it at home. It was pretty easy! No real recipe, but here’s...
Last Thursday some classmates and I traveled down to Chinatown to indulge in some of the best food North 9th Street has to offer. Rangoon is a small, unassuming Burmese restaurant located on 9th between Arch and Cherry, where one of my fellow diners had her first date with her husband over 10 years ago— now I know why they stayed together! The food was excellent, flavorful and rich, and the...
