In preparation for my big move to Brooklyn at the end of the month, I have done a massssssive purge of everything in my apartment that I don’t want but is in too good a shape to trash, and am having a big ol’ apartment sale/giveaway extravaganza this weekend. I’m planning on serving some snacks and, most importantly, day-appropriate cocktails. I need to make something that easily serves a crowd, so I’ve decided to make a big ol’ pitcher of Screwdriver Sangria. Get the recipe after the jump! Keep reading »
Dominique Ansel handed over his cronut recipe on “Good Morning America,” and while Gothamist claims that 26 tablespoons of butter is a “whopping” amount for the entire recipe, I beg to differ. If you want croissants, you’re going to have to accept the fact that you’re eating more than two tablespoons of butter per croissant. What really takes the cronut over the top is the “grapeseed oil as needed” in which you fry the dough.
Also, don’t be appalled at the amount of time it takes — y’all ever made croissants? It’s always a three-day process. Beautiful things take time and attention. Croissants are beautiful things. Oh, and it is worth it. Homemade croissants are ambrosia. Keep reading »
As a huge foodie, I’m counting down the days until I attend the Greenwich 2014 Food + Wine Festival this September. When I learned that one of the world’s most famous chef restaurateurs, Jean-Georges Vongerichten, was going to be honored at the event’s Most Innovative Chef’s Gala, I had to see what all the hype was about before I actually tried his food. Jean-Georges has published several cookbooks, owns multiple 3 and 4-star restaurants worldwide and makes countless television appearances, but best of all, he’s shared one of his favorite recipes with The Frisky, and trust me— it’s one of those knock-the-socks-off-of-your-friends, be-the-hostess-with-the-mostess eats that will leave everyone in the room salivating.

Cream pie is one of those things I don’t enjoy often enough. Light, creamy and fluffy, I can eat an entire one by myself. Try whipping up one of these cream pies and grab a fork for an indulgent night.
This weekend, I enjoyed brunch at one of my favorite local Mexican restaurants Tomatillo. I was tempted to order my usual margarita, but decided to try a pineapple crusher instead. If you haven’t had one, I highly recommend it — it’s like a Caribbean vacation in a cup. I slowly sipped this pineapple cocktail with a touch of Creme de Cacao and dreamed of the cliffside pools of St. Thomas. Try one of these pineapple cocktails and transport yourself to your happy place.
