Tossed: Garden Fresh Salads

Timing is everything. Earlier this week, Tossed‘s PR rep contacted me to ask if I was interested in trying their products and blogging about them.   Tossed, a mostly salad restaurant, recently opened in the Prudential Center in Boston’s Back Bay.  Coincidentally, I had plans to have dinner with A + B in Back Bay and [...]

Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies

Suddenly the Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookie is popping up everywhere, but it looks like the trend started on Picky Palate.   Well, this cookie idea was too simple and delicious for Miss Yunks to not make at her first chance. My KitchenAid is still broken (damn thing still hasn’t fixed itself) so I used store [...]

Homemade Potato Gnocchi

Gnocchi served as the inspiration for Miss Yunks’s Valentine’s Day dinner.  Gnocchi was fresh on the mind from reading menus to pick a restaurant for birthday dinner and from reading about Katie’s homemade gnocchi on The Small Boston Kitchen.  There was no doubt gnocchi would be the star of dinner.

Cornflake-Crusted Challah French Toast

Not to be a sap but… for Valentine’s Day this year, A-Tooch requested “breakfast for dinner” from her BF. He went above and beyond.

The Blue Room – Cambridge

Miss Yunks did some serious research to pick a restaurant for her birthday dinner.  She checked several Cambridge menus and reviews before making a decision.  She finally narrowed it down to The Blue Room in Kendall Square.  What solidified this choice? The hubbarb squash gnocchi. But I’ll start at the beginning.  I don’t have any [...]

Gran Gusto – Cambridge

This past Friday night, Miss Yunks dined out at a very local to her Cambridge restaurant: Gran Gusto.  Gran Gusto is an authentic Italian restaurant with a homemade feel tucked behind an unsuspecting building in North Cambridge, somewhat between Huron Village and Porter Square. My sister and her boyfriend were in town and BF and [...]
