Tea Forte

December 11, 2010 Favorites

Have you tried Tea Forte (which translates roughly to “strong tea”)? I received a couple of these little guys at a recent baby shower. I’d never seen tea like this and was intrigued. As the weather’s cooled considerably, I’ve finally gotten back into the ritual of enjoying hot tea. I decided to try out an [...]

Book Review: Kitchen Confidential

September 10, 2010 Favorites

Inspired by my previous post and the recent release of Anthony Bourdain’s Medium Raw (the follow up to his first best seller), I finally got around to reading Kitchen Confidential- about a decade late, I know. It was well worth the wait, though I’m kicking myself for not having read this book in college when [...]

Liberte Mediterranee

August 26, 2010 Favorites

I picked up this brand of yogurt the other day while at Whole Foods (my home away from home). I hadn’t tried it and it was on sale so I went for it. I’m usually reluctant to try new yogurts without a recommendation because you just never know what to expect…and I’m really picky. But [...]

Mocha Frap= My new fave drink

June 3, 2010 Favorites

I have a confession to make. Starbucks’ mocha frappuccino light is my new favorite drink. I’m obsessed. I have one nearly every day. Geez…that sounds really bad. But I can’t stop! The heat of the scorching summer sun brings cool sweet treats to mind. And my boring office job requires caffeine for concentration (and not [...]

So Delicious Coconut Milk Yogurt

May 18, 2010 Favorites

I am a huge fan of So Delicious Coconut Milk Products. So, recently I gave this a try. I sampled the strawberry with grapenuts on top for crunch. I’m not sure how I feel about it though. The taste was a bit off from the traditional tang (that I very much enjoy) of traditional yogurt. [...]

Home made root beer and other southern comforts

May 14, 2010 Favorites

Last weekend I attended my best friend’s wedding in Knoxville, TN. It was a very special occasion for me because it took me back to my home state, giving me a chance to revisit family and old friends. One of the highlights was the rehearsal dinner at the Museum of Appalachia which proudly displays the [...]
