reviewed Dove Dark Chocolate with Almonds. August 20, 2008
Dove Dark Chocolate with Almonds
Oh, Dove. You made me sad today. If only you'd spent as much time on the chocolate as you did on your packaging.   I was lured into spending nearly $5 on a 9.5-ounce bag of your dark chocolates …

Cherry Garcia Ice-cream
Let's be honest: it is quite difficult to eff up ice cream.  Ice+cream+something else yummy = OK by me.  And if anyone knows how to do a good job utilizing this formula, it's Ben and Jerry.  …
reviewed Heineken. December 31, 2008
Heineken
While I really enjoy microbrews Heineken is a great alternative to the heaviness of the Hef's in the marketplace.   It is light and crisp with a bit of a kick ( like me). It comes in many varieties …
reviewed Guinness Draught. December 10, 2008
Guinness
Guinness is one of my favorite beers.  The thick, creamy brew feels like you're almost drinking a dessert.  Interestingly enough, a Guinness has less calories than the same amount of a regular …
reviewed Mojito. December 13, 2008
Mojito
Mojitos are a tough drink to get right- too much rum and it overpowers the drink and too little mint doesn't give the drink enough of its signature refreshing kick. It helps to use a mortar and pestly …

Red Velvet Cake
The best thing about red velvet cupcakes is undoubtably the cream cheese frosting.  I first had red velvet cupcakes at a friend's wedding this summer...I just found out they're now filing for divorce, …

Ritz Crackers
I enjoy a good Ritz Cracker snack. Most people enjoy a Ritz Cracker with peanut butter or a little cheese. Personally, I  prefer my Ritz Cracker sandwich o'Lite. Now I never said I have a Top Chef's …

Mimosa
Who decided champagne and orange juice was an ok breakfast choice? Whoever it is, I plan to give him or her a big wet one. The bubbly effervescence of the champagne and the slight tartness of the orange …

Midori Sour
The Midori sour is probably my favorite cocktail made with Midori mix.  Not only do I love its tangy, non-alcoholic taste, its emerald green color is pretty awesome, too!  This is one drink …

Uni
Consuming uni can be a hit or miss.  When it's bad, it's downright foul, but when it's good, it's *amazing*.  I know most foods are best consumed when fresh, but when it comes to uni, it has …

Anything cheesy, greasy, spicy, salty, or topped with sour cream is sure to be a hit in a pub/bar environment.  Quality bar food is sure to be appreciated, especially if found in the form of potato …

Veganomicon: The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook
I love this cookbook.  Seriously, it holds a special place in my heart, right next to my Cuisinart food processor and boxed wine.  I had absolutely no flipping idea how to cook (anything, animal …

Edamame
Just like how bananas are often thought of as a happy fruit (they're smiley-shaped, afterall!), edamame are like happy, smiley soybeans!  It's hard to believe that there was ever a time where I didn't …
reviewed Ice Cream Sandwiches. December 17, 2008
Ice Cream Sandwiches
I don't know who invented ice cream sandwiches but I'd like to kiss them right on the lips.    There's not much that can beat the traditional chocolatey, flexible cookie with vanilla …

Whoopie Pies
My mom and her sisters were born in Pennsylvania, where whoopee pies or gobs are supposedly well known. I have been back to visit family many times as a child. Even still, I've never heard of whoopee …

Taco Bell
There's a Taco Bell near my work and lately, I've been visiting it quite frequently! You might ask why I don't visit other nearby fast foods for variety. That's because Taco Bell has all the variety you …
reviewed Sake Bomb. August 15, 2008

For someone who hates beer, I have the best memories of Sake Bombs. This should tell you a whole lot about the beauty of this drink (and by "beauty" I of course mean it's ability to eff you up).     M …
