Cold Brew Coffee

This heat wave drove us to drink. Cold brew coffee that is. Our mornings typically start around 7:30 a.m. with a cup of coffee, oatmeal or cereal, and The Today Show. While we always see Jill’s Steals and Deals, we’ve never had an urge to buy any of her steals. It wasn’t until the (affiliate links coming up) […]

Southern Fried Fish Tacos

We’ve been on a taco spree lately! We’re not sure if we’re just craving Mexican dishes or if we’re making all of these tacos to pair with the different margaritas we’ve mixed up lately. Anywho, we loved these Southern fried fish tacos and can’t wait to make them again. Our neighborhood seafood market had a great selection of […]

Frozen Pineapple Margarita

It seems as though the pineapple is the new owl. So we decided to add a new flavor to the Marquisrita lineup. We made a frozen Pineapple Margarita! Don’t you love our gold pineapple tumblers? We’ve had quite the heat wave here in the city over the last week. As usual the 6 train has […]

Celebrating our Blogiversary

Today, our baby turns five years old so we’re celebrating! Yes, our blog baby and we’re celebrating our blogiversary! Looking back at some of our first posts, we’ve come a long way – in both recipes and photos. In 2011, we started sharing our food adventures on my personal Tumblr page as new Hofstra University alumni. We wanted to share […]

Cupcake Sparkler

Fourth of July is a celebration for the adoption of the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. It’s when the 13 colonies declared themselves a new nation. Do you think they had any […]

Marquisrita on the rocks

A few weeks ago, my mother, Fatima and I were sitting on my parent’s lake house deck in the hot, humid New Hampshire air, wondering what drink we could make to cool us off; it was 5 o’clock. We all had one drink in mind: a Marquisrita on the rocks. Side note (affiliate link coming up): […]

Hawaiian BBQ Fried Chicken

A few weeks ago, my cousin Lisa and her Grammy Award-winning fiancé, Peter, flew into Connecticut from Hawaii to do some wedding planning before the big day! We’re so excited to head out to Hawaii next year! Part of their trip included celebrating Nana’s ’92+2′ birthday and coming down to NYC to visit me at work! Not that […]
