Max Brenner: Chocolate by the Bald Man

We arrived in Philly Wednesday night just in time for dinner.  Where to go where five people with slightly different eating preferences will be happy?  Sure, Italian food is always a good choice.  But this night we opted for something different, something more American, something more chocolaty.  We had dinner at Max Brenner!

Recap of Thanksgiving 2010

Well Miss Yunks failed to take any photos of Thanksgiving dinner, but it’s still worth mentioning. This year, I went to my sister’s boyfriend’s parents house in a Philadelphia suburb.  I was excited to get away for a long weekend and, as much as I enjoy cooking, it’s nice to not always have to cook!

Hill Country BBQ

Ah, the never ending quest for some good BBQ north of the Mason-Dixon line… For A-Tooch and friends, girls night out is hardly ever feminine. This round of dinner took us to the “esteemed” Hill Country BBQ, a fan favorite in NYC. I had never been to Hill Country before, so was eager to try. [...]

Mini Pumpkin Pies

TFAW Reunite in NYC — The Wacky Dinner at Serra Bistro

For our one dinner together in NYC, we wanted to use a new site to book a reservation.  We were recently invited to join new website Village Vines. Currently only operating in NYC, Village Vines partners with several restaurants to offer discounts to customers when making a reservation through their site.  What’s the catch? The [...]

#1 Cheese Sauce

After many years of trying to perfect a recipe for the liquid, gooey cheese sauce you find at restaurants (with less artificial stuff), A-Tooch struck gold. Truth be told, it was Kenji Lopez-Alt of Serious Eats who put me on to the secret ingredient in his similar blog post. I figured that was a good [...]
