Butter Me Up Brooklyn

Butter Me Up Brooklyn
Valentine’s Day seems to be a polarizing holiday; a love or loathe type of situation that makes people cringe in disgust or happily don headbands with bobbing red glitter heart antennae attached. This year it is just a straight-up polar-vortexing holiday which is neither here nor there and that was just me trying to get in all my vortex jokes while I am able. I suppose I fall somewhere in the middle and my usual route is the “how many conversation hearts I can consume today” approach. But regardless of your stance on Valentine’s Day, it is easy to get behind Galentine’s Day. Galentine’s Day is all about celebrating lady friends, your group of gal pals, or your BBF that you’ve known for 100-years. Literally.

Double Dipped Apple Doughnuts Given the choice between being home and not being home… I’m the girl that always chooses home. Brooklyn is amazing. San Francisco is delicious. Baltimore is bonkers. Quinoa and lentil salad with asparagus, mint and haloumi Haloumi is a great source of calcium and a good low-fat cheese to include in salads, I love that it’s ‘meaty’ and substantial, albeit a little squeaky texture. It’s especially wonderful when sliced and pan fried. For something different, I marinate a whole block of haloumi in lime juice, then pan fry it whole, before slicing and serving, it turns out seared and crispy on the outside with a smooth and creamy centre.

2011 » Pete Drinks One of my big beer obsessions is exploring the ever growing London brewing scene; the London Brewers page I maintain here isn’t so much a public service as a ‘to drink’ list. Here, we pay our first visit to a brewpub – specifically, the Bull in Highgate which has the added benefit of being the brewery geographically closest to my house! The Bull has been there for a very long time, but it’s only a matter of months since Dan Fox took the place over, refurbished it into a stylish space and somehow managed to cram a small, 2.5 barrel brewery – the London Brewing Company – into the corner of the kitchen. Ok, so it’s not going to put Fullers out of business any time soon but despite the size they aim to keep four of their own brews on tap at any one time. They also manage to sell one of the more impressive collection of craft beer from around the world – draft and bottled – that I’ve come across in a pub. This is truly a beer lovers paradise.

Baba au rhum I can't actually remember the first time my mom made Baba au rhum. But somewhere in my teenage years, it became a yearly tradition and she wowed family and friends (and got them tipsy too!) with this recipe. A Baba - you may be wondering - is a yeasted brioche bun that is soaked in rum syrup. Zoe Nathan Muesli Recipe - Heather Taylor's Favorite Zoe Nathan Meusli Heather Taylor Shares The Ultimate Breakfast Recipe The ultimate recipe for the tastiest breakfast from Heather Taylor and Huckleberry’s Zoe Nathan!

Recipes and Tips for Healthy Travel If there is one passion I have beyond cooking and eating, it is traveling. In just one week I will be on a plane with my husband, heading for the tropical paradise of Kauai. It has been a dream of mine for many years to visit this Hawaiian island, and since my best friend is currently living there, I knew that this was the perfect opportunity. The only bummer about this incredible dream coming true? Oh, the 38-hours it will take to get there from Copenhagen. Yikes. Buttermilk Pancakes Recipe My quest for a fabulous pancake recipe has followed a very similar path as my quest for the perfect chocolate chip cookie. Until I found “the one“, I searched high and low. Every recipe claiming to be the best I tried. And I kept trying until that fateful day when it was clear that I never had to try another chocolate chip recipe again.
