Turkey

WRITTEN ON Sunday, November 20th, 2011 BY Meredith AND STORED IN Holiday, Turkey

ShareFor any true food lover, Thanksgiving is the king of all holidays. The be all end all. The big dance. In short, it’s a game on, all out foodie bacchanalia, and the crown jewel is the turkey. I’m not delusional. I realize that for most people, turkey is not actually their favorite part of the […]

ShareOur Thanksgiving was everything I’d hoped it would be. A house full of family, an adorable and well behaved baby girl, a long morning walk, a gorgeous table (she said as she pats herself on the back), and heaps of good food.  We had roast turkey and deep fried turkey. It rained, so we had […]

ShareWhen I was working a regular 9-5 office job, I remember always having a real problem with lunch. Specifically, where to buy it and how much it was going to cost. In New York City, something as ordinary as a chopped salad can run you about 14 bucks. Add a drink and a piece of […]

ShareYesterday I worked an all day beauty editor event here in NYC. It’s typically an open house for the launch of a new product. Beauty companies woo editors from magazines and websites, by means of food and drink and free lipstick, to sample their wares in the hopes of getting a glowing write up. These […]

ShareThis is the perfect remedy for an unexpected October cold snap. I stirred the pot while watching the weather reports of all the snow in the Northeast, cozy inside my apartment while the Nor’easter blew and spit rain outside. The hubster came home to the smell of turkey soup and a baseball game on the […]

ShareWell, look what the cat drug in…the dog days of summer have finally arrived here in the Northeast, and the concrete jungle that is Manhattan in August is as hazy as a college student on holiday in Amsterdam.  Given that our air-conditioning chug-a-lugs slowly to life on even the coolest of days, my oven has […]

ShareHave I told you lately that I love…the Greenmarkets?  Any farmers market, really.  They are the best kind of inspiration.  My ideal morning is one spent wandering the stalls of a farmers market, checking out what’s fresh and letting the ideas flow (next stop, Woodstock.  Jeez).   Last week while meandering through the market on  47th […]

ShareWeeknight meals should strike a balance between healthy and quick.  Especially Monday.  I’m usually still full from my “weekend eating” by Monday night.  That’s why these Greek turkey burgers are such a staple around here.  They’re made with only breast meat turkey (the regular ground turkey actually has about as much fat as lean ground […]
