I have a thing for…

New York. Last week my mom and I traveled to New York for my spring break. We had a bunch of doctor visits to do but managed to enjoy our time in the city. I would call this trip the eating tour of New York. We went to Sarabeths, Jane, Cafe Lalo, Millesime, Eatery, David Burke at Bloomingdales and a new restaurant DeeDa.

And for your viewing pleasure, here are all of the amazing meals we had!

I have a thing for…

my camera. It is wonderful and takes the most glorious photos.

I have a thing for…

Blogs. Clearly, because I have one I would be addicted to finding other blogs and obsessing over their content. My first blog love has to go to Michelle Profis, if it were not for her I would not have a blog to call my own. She has two different blogs that you can read Big Grapes, Small Raisins or An American Girl in the London World. Michelle writes so beautifully and whenever she posts it feels like I am on a mini-holiday with her in London.

Some other blogs that I can’t get enough of include Gaby Dunn’s 100 Interviews. Gaby has taken on the task of interviewing 100 different people that she has never met and it is really enjoyable to read about her journey of these interviews. Carly Lundy also has a blog that I cannot get enough of. She posts great recipes and ideas that you should definitely check out The Daily Batch! I also have a thing for Chelsea’s blog top5. Here she brings together her love of the Gators, Football and other great things as she counts down her top 5 faves.

I found this blog by clicking and clicking my way through the wonderful world of wedding websites. No, I am not getting married, but I simply LOVE wedding websites. I can thank Lindsay for this problem I have. It started with Style Me Pretty and has since grown to include MANY other sites. I don’t recall how I came across Green Wedding Shoes but I haven’t looked back since. For me, its the photography that draws me into these different sites. I can’t get enough of photography, which is why I LOVE this next blog.

Mr and Mrs Globe Trot. This couple just got married and decided to spend the next six months traveling the world. They have just finished up the Europe segment of their trip, it lasted three months. They are wedding photographers when they are living in the states, so I was obviously drawn to their gorgeous pictures on their blog. If you get a minute, you really should check it out. I feel like I am along for the ride on their amazing travels.

Today I found this blog FRYD + DESIGN and I just love the colors and visuals on the site. And obviously I love Food Blogs. I found this one yesterday thanks to twitter. Making sundaySauce, having just gotten my new camera, I love photographing food and this is a great guide to help me along my journey.

Thats all for today, but I will add more as I find what is out there on this amazing invention we call Internet. Today I am having a technology love attack. It is amazing how the Internet can bring people together from all over the world who have the same interests and desires to share with others.

I have a thing for…

Truffles. My mom continuously asks me what truffles have that make them special. Truffles that are fungi are extremely expensive and used at the nicest of restaurants. The fungi are usually added to a dish to add depth and flavor. Another use is truffle oil that can be used as a great way to make any savory dish taste incredible. I LOVE these kinds of truffles, BUT I LOVEEEEE Chocolate Truffles even more. These truffles have nothing to do with the fungus and usually have a delicious ganache on the inside and are coated with more yummy chocolate on the outside.

I found this recipe on What Megan’s Making, a new favorite website of mine. The minute I saw it, I knew I had to try out the recipe. These delicious little balls of fun taste great and I cannot wait to make more when my batch has run out.

Cookie Dough Truffles

YUM

Different Design

I have a thing for…

Chocolate…and to express my feelings, I would like to quote a song.

Heaven, I’m in heaven, and my heart beats so that I can hardly speak. And I seem to find the happiness I seek, when we’re out together dancing cheek to cheek.

You know when you eat something and this song pops into your head because whatever you’re eating is just that damn good. That is how I feel when I eat the cookies from Levain Bakery. A tiny shop on 74th street off of Amsterdam, the smell you walk into is intoxicating. It is just chocolate sensory overload that makes you want to lay down forever and live in this cute little shop. At least I do. If you love chocolate, you will LOVE the Dark Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookie, because it really is just AMAZING, FANTASTIC, MOUTH WATERING, MELTS IN YOUR MOUTH…I can go on for a while. Instead, I just recommend you try these cookies. Even if you aren’t a cookie person, you will convert the minute you eat one of their cookies.
