NYC Food Hall Tour

DSC05411

There has been a recent boom in NYC of something known as a Food Hall. What is it? In reality, it’s just a glorified Food Court. There is an abundance of just about everything in NYC, with the exception of one very important thing: space. Because of the lack of space, our malls simply can’t fit food courts. So instead, we rename them Food Halls, jack up the prices, and invite only the hippest and hottest vendors to join. But what should you eat when there’s so many to choose from? I recently took on the painstaking task of travelling around these places and sampling the goodies that were there: you have to make sacrifices for your craft. Below is an overview of a few places I would recommend and some that were a bit disappointing.

Meal Plan: 12/04/16

Blogged while watching Chopped!

I’m so excited about my meal plan this week because I got some brand new Bento Boxes. It’s easier to plan meals because I get a visual of each compartment. Recipes are below.

Bon Appetit!

Homemade Lox (salmon)

 

031

Blogged while watching Grease Live! on Fox.

During a recent visit with my BFF (my mom, Sophia) I was treated to homemade (yes, homemade) lox. I was blown away by how delicious it was! I was even more blown away when she told me the 17 seconds she spent making it! So, I immediately went out and bought my own fillets and made it right at home. And it was just as delicious!

Sunday Funday Cooking:Couscous Crabcakes with Lite Slaw

009

Sundays are cooking days for me. If I don’t have anything else planned, I take the day to food shop and meal plan for the rest of the week. This is essential for healthy living because it eliminates any opportunities for weak moments. If I get home absolutely ravenous, there is always something available in the fridge. It’s always healthy, it’s already prepared, and it is delicious!

This Sunday was no exceptions. On average, I make about 7 dishes. Some turn out better than others and I wanted to share them with you.

Among what I made this week was

  • couscous crab cakes with a lite Cole Slaw,
  • turkey ham stuffed chicken roulettes with sauteed mushrooms and onions
  • succotash, and
  • RPM fruit punch.

Tuna Avocado Salad with Miso dressing

009

My favorite dish at Japanese restaurants usually has fresh tuna. There is a great fish market near my house that sells sushi grade tuna, fresh and delicious, perfect to eat raw. While perusing the inner aisles, I found white miso paste in the refrigerator. The salty and earthy flavor is often underestimated and simply not used enough.

Sparkling Apple Punch

I’m a huge fan of soda BUT, I drink it very rarely because of how little nutritional value it has. Last summer, I bought the Yorkshire Beverage Dispenser and dedicated the top shelf on the fridge to it. Originally, I was going to use it for fruit infused water but I got inspired to take it a step further and create homemade drinks and subsequently allow me to control my own sugar intake. Below is the first sparkling punch I created that helped my soda cravings.
