There have been quite a few new restaurant openings in Boston lately – Buttermilk & Bourbon and North Square Oyster are just a couple that are on the top of my list to try. But when it comes to regular weekday dinner, I want something that I know will be delicious without sucking my wallet dry.
So even with all these exciting new places to eat, I find myself returning to the list of places that have already made a home in my tastebuds’ memories.
If you haven’t guessed yet, Area Four near Kendall Square is one of the few that fit that description. Continue reading
July is here, reminding us all how hot it can actually get in this world. But it comes with a silver lining. In a few days we’ll all be given free license to hang out outside and drink cold drinks and eat grilled food. ‘Murricans, this one’s for you.
And even if you’re not American, these recipes are delicious in their own right. Who doesn’t love fruity alcoholic beverages, summer snacks, and homemade ice cream?
So rejoice, friends! And let’s forget about our worries and our strife for a day. Continue reading
I’m so happy to be back in my kitchen baking you all some sweet treats. After a long work week, spending a day off with some chocolate and a whisk is the perfect antidote to stress. With this recipe, I think you’ll feel the same.
These bad boys are especially fun to make. Not only are the cupcakes themselves super easy to whip together, but the filling is deliciously dark and the buttercream tastes like like rich, creamy coffee ice cream. You may find yourself eating it with a spoon before it even gets the chance to sit atop a cupcake. And that’s quite alright. Continue reading
I’m back, baby.
I took a short (okay, maybe the longish kind of short) break from my Yin and Yolk posting schedule to take a course on front-end web development in my free time to learn how to raise this blog baby of mine into something bigger. But now I’m back and ready to feed your appetites, starting now. Are you ready?
I know some of you may be tired of reading about the trip to London I took a few months ago, but I have just this one final post to share, and it’s a yummy one. After this, I promise I will share a recipe. It’s been a while, I know.
If you read my last post, you know I still have a lot more to share about my recent trip to London. This is Part II of III, which I am unofficially dubbing, “The Savory Side”. (The first was breakfast, and the next post will be all about dessert. But I digress.)
I was in the UK for nine days, and I spent one of them visiting Oxford. Untouched by WWII, this quaint little town was overflowing with a rich history still evidenced by its gorgeous old architecture. As I wandered around the immaculately kept University grounds, I got a tiny thrill knowing that I was walking in J. R. R. Tolkien and C. S. Lewis’ footsteps.
When they studied at Oxford, they and other literary enthusiasts formed an informal group called the Inklings. The Inklings would meet weekly to discuss their writing. They traditionally met at a pub called The Eagle and Child (which Oxfordians also know as The Bird and Baby) every Tuesday for lunch. Continue reading
