Pumpkin Porter Scones

Posted by Down Home Foodie under Top Foodie Blog
A couple weeks ago, StumbleUpon directed me to a recipe for cheddar beer scones.  I thought that sounded great, but was more intrigued by this new idea of making scones with beer.  In my head, I started thinking about all the ways to m... [...]

Boston: Jamaica Plain: Ula Cafe

Posted by Arielle under Top Foodie Blog
There will be a special place in the acknowledgments section of the book I'm writing for this cafe.  While I adore Canto No. 6, they don't have much seating, whereas Ula has it in abundance.  Despite how busy Ula often gets, I've never been u... [...]

On a recent ridiculous NYC trip, I spent some time in the AM bouncing from place to place, reading and writing until the event I had come for started.  After Veselka, at about 6:30 AM I headed here to Bourbon Coffee for some coffee.  No, not ... [...]

Secret Garden Tea Company – High Tea

Posted by pennyandrusty under Food, Top Foodie Blog
Contrary to it’s name, the Secret Garden Tea Company is hardly a secret at all… in fact, it’s one of the more popular places for High Tea (or Afternoon Tea if you want to get technical).  We made reservations for noon – and, as usual with our luck, they had some trouble finding our reservations.  [...]

PNE 2011 – Fair Food

Posted by pennyandrusty under Food, Top Foodie Blog
We’ve been going to the Pacific National Exhibition every year since we were kids.  Some things have changed over the years (I still miss the BC Pavilion with the Challenger Relief Map) but one thing that hasn’t changed is that the PNE is a great place to go to get yummy fair food. Where else [...]
