Easter: A Tisket A Tasket A Local Boston Basket

I love Easter.  Well, we don’t celebrate Easter but I love the memory of Easter brunches in Toronto.  We used to go fairly often to my parents’ friend’s place; they were like family to us.  We would drive a good hour to get there and when we did we were rewarded with a table of…

A Tale of Two Rugelach: Commonwealth Cambridge & Mamaleh’s

Rugelach is a classic New York Jewish treat. It is made with a cream cheese pastry crust.  I have never made rugelach (I don’t think) but I recently did try my hand at a cream cheese crust for this rugelach inspired savoury crostata.   Cream cheese adds to the flavours and textures of the pastry.  Here…

Shop Boston’s Piazza: Eataly at the Prudential

Alright, I’ll admit it.  I was a skeptic when I heard Eataly was coming to Boston.  “We have our very own North End,” I thought “why do we need Eataly here?”  After a tour of Eataly Boston I’m convinced we do need it here and that the North End has one role and Eataly Boston has…

Make the Trade: Trade Boston

Trade your regular old date night for something different this year.  Step outside your date night comfort zone and you won’t regret taking it.  I know as parents we’re tired and sometimes lucky enough to make it out the door on date night.  You’ve got this and once you get there you won’t regret the…

Screaming Labor Day Ice Cream Cake Recipe (Sponsored)

We’re screaming because it is a party and every party needs a little noise.  We’re screaming because summer is coming to an end.  We’re screaming for ice cream and we’ll continue enjoying it year-round to remember all those great summer days. This is the perfect dessert for your Labor Day BBQ because it is so…

Car Treats: Summers on the Run

In the summer, we somehow find ourselves spending a lot more time in the car and a lot more time outside.  From trips to the pool and beach to carpools to and from camp, the car is our home away from home.  With hungry swimmers and campers, avoiding extra stops and getting from “point a”…

Picnic Like You Have a Personal Chef: Post 390

There is something idyllic about a picnic.  From large family picnics at the local playground on a summer’s day staying up too late, and keeping cool by running through the sprinkler to a picnic for two with your boyfriend on a city picnic bench or at the beach.  You don’t need a reservation.  You can…

Dinner at La Motta

The South End has an interesting dining scene. There are the sought after spots cooking up some of the best bites you will ever put in your mouth. There are the delicious, unfussy, neighborhood spots for regulars and visitors alike. There are the less chef-driven kitchens that just put out good, popular dishes, that are…

Leah’s Lunch: Moody’s Deli (Waltham)

Moody’s Deli is not a deli.  Well, it’s not just a deli.  If Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory is a Seven Eleven then I suppose Moody’s could be a deli. New England Charcuterie is like Roald Dahl’s fantasy chocolate factory but for cured meats.  Lunch at Moody’s can be a combined deli grocery shopping trip and lunch…

The Art of Wooing with Chocolate: Langham Chocolate Bar

The Langham Boston has so much to offer when it comes to being romantic.  There is the Chuan Body + Soul spa and indoor rooftop pool to the swanky yet relaxed Bond Restaurant and the sparkling chic champagne lounge.  When it comes to aphrodisiacs though, the winner may be chocolate and the ultimate chocolate experience is…

Superbowl: The Edible Experience Boston Edition 

The Superbowl is a televised event wherein friends and family gather, beer in hand, surrounded by a lot of snacks and tasty foods, periodically cheering and groaning.  Essentially, its like Oktoberfest minus the parade (we always had a parade in Kitchener- Waterloo) and with a bunch of men parading around a field in jerseys amd…
