Last week, my friends and I went to härth, a swanky restaurant located in the Hilton headquarters in Northern Virginia. Although the restaurant is actually located inside the Hilton Hotel, they "want to be treated as a real restaurant", according to the chef in this article. After my visit, I'm completely sold.

A few weeks ago I came across a super easy made-from-scratch donut recipe. It claimed to take only fifteen minutes and doesn’t require yeast or resting time. I love donuts but they can be so time consuming to make. It’s usually easier to go out and buy one. But this recipe seemed so simple I had to try it.
And it really is that easy. These came out light and fluffy like just fried donut holes should taste.
I was watching a dvd with the family and didn’t want to disturb them with my mixer. This recipe just requires you to mix the dough quickly by hand in a bowl. It took only a few minutes to prepare and then the donuts were ready to be fried.More Here...
My mother uses one of her days off every week to venture to bakeries and restaurants on her list of places to go, much like I do in my spare time. I got a phone call during my lunch break this past Thursday from her, telling me she was going to Brooklyn Larder in Park Slope, Brooklyn. She asked me if I wanted her to bring me back anything (what a silly question). I told her to bring back something unique, preferably a type of cake, but nothing chocolate. Yes, I typically know exactly what I’m in the mood for when it comes to sweets. I don’t play around. More Here...

"Crab cakes and football," that's how Maryland does it. Yes, I'm a Marylander and we do boast the best crab cakes around. There's nothing better than an incredible, rich, and tasty crab cake to lift your spirits on a beautiful summer day. Please don't tell me you're allergic to seafood or dislike crab because I may just cry and men who love football don't cry.
Whenever I'm away from my home state I'm hesitant to take the leap of faith to try a crab cake on a menu. I may be bold enough to order a crab cake sandwich if nothing appetizing on the menu lures me in. A bad crab cake can almost always be hidden by two buns, lots of tartar or cocktail sauce, lettuce, and tomato.
A truly amazing crab cake needs nothing extra. I judge my crab cakes by taste and texture. When I say texture I am referring to the type of crab meat in the crab cake. More Here...
