Table Verte,Vegetarian French Bistro & Carrot Salad

Table Verte,Vegetarian French Bistro & Carrot Salad

If you’re staying local this summer but dreaming of Paris, head to Table Verte on 7th Street in the East Village, NYC, for a taste of traditional bistro fare. Well, maybe not so traditional since Table Verte is vegetarian. And as far as I can see, it is the only French vegetarian restaurant in NYC. That al...

MagNoodles: Organic Pasta for your Summer Pleasure

MagNoodles: Organic Pasta for your Summer Pleasure

 Recently, a friend of E’s, a budding Broadway star at the ripe old age of 23, asked me if I would boil up some of his college pal’s Mom’s “cool” pasta and consider sharing my thoughts with my readers.  Sure!

Naturally Delicious at the Lime plus Quinoa Stuffed ‘Shrooms

Naturally Delicious at the Lime plus Quinoa Stuffed ‘Shrooms

By Camillo Ferrari The vibe at the Lime restaurant in Norwalk, CT is a throwback to the late 70's. Square sheets of glass protect faded, striped umber and orange tablecloths and customers' business cards are wedged between cloth and glass.

Candle 79 Lights the Way with Paella & More

Candle 79 Lights the Way with Paella & More

I'll admit to feeling a quick flutter of excitement when friends suggest eating together and the expectation is that I chose the “perfect” spot. I rapidly flip through my mental rolodex, wondering if they want the meal to comfort them or blow them away with offbeat creations? Do they want a hip, cacoph...

Ready, Stuff, Roll for Chanukah aka NOT your Nana’s Stuffed Cabbage

Ready, Stuff, Roll for Chanukah aka NOT your Nana’s Stuffed Cabbage

This is a fun and flavorful twist on classic Jewish stuffed cabbage. The brussel sprout leaves are easier to manage and do not need to be pre-cooked. Feel free to play with the seasoning, making it more Middle Eastern by adding additional Ras El Hanout or cumin.

Dean’s Beans Organic Coffee Company

contributed by Melissa Roberts Do you ever really think about your coffee? I never did. Though my morning cup is a daily ritual, I neither cared nor thought about where the coffee came from as long as the brew was hot and strong. But coffee is big business and a controversial topic environmentally and p...
