  1. If it is on the menu, treat yourself to Happy Gyro's Basque cheesecake. I am not crazy about traditional cheesecake, and I had never had Basque cheesecake before, but I certainly will order it again. The outside was deliciously caramelized, while the inside was oh so creamy. After admiring the beautiful burnt exterior, I drizzled the berry sauce on top. I thought nothing could top Happy Gyro's gelato, but this is just as good, if not better.
  2. Just when I thought their pizzas couldn't get any better, we ordered this week's pie featuring fresh peaches, olives, salami and red onions. It was fantastic! Ours had a tomato vodka sauce that I really enjoyed. It also was available with a creamy garlic sauce. As always, the crust was perfect. I also loved their new dessert offering--a goat cheese gelato with blackberry and shortbread. Heavenly.
  3. Agreed. Ina's are always wonderful, but some of Martha's are "meh."
  4. I’m raising a glass of champagne to (and with) the sweetest man I’ve ever known. Happy birthday, DonRocks!
  5. I recently re-watched this film, and shortly after, "Suspicion." The former held up much better for a second viewing than the latter. I loved "Rebecca" the second time around, but Suspicion seemed dull, and the contrived ending annoyed me. I had no idea Mrs. Danvers was the inspiration for Cloris Leachman's character in "Young Frankenstein." Having recently watched the 1931 version of "Frankenstein," and then "Rebecca," it was great fun viewing this 1974 comedy again, which I hadn't seen since I was still in elementary school.
  6. Scallops with fennel grenobloise, and dark-chocolate-dipped strawberries and bananas and a black plum for dessert.
  7. We had two delicious meals from Corduroy last week, and we bought some fresh, fabulous produce from them as well.
  8. We had Kinship's "Date Night" menu over the weekend. It was pricey, but we got our Friday and Saturday nights' dinners out of it, plus a Sunday snack! It even came with a candle, which I almost didn't use (until I remembered where I put my taper-candle holder when I moved here three years ago). The food was fabulous, and it even came with plating/reheating instructions. It made the weekend feel like a weekend, for a change!
  9. Today I enjoyed the White Pizza with Asparagus and Ramps from Happy Gyro. It was one of the best pizzas I have had in a looooooong time.
  10. This is a great idea! I must admit, I have always like cobbling together meals from random items and leftovers, too. Creative cooking without running to the store is my favorite part of social distancing!
  11. I am sad to hear this. I never met him in person, but he was kind and engaging online. I will miss his posts.
  12. This is the first time in my life I passed on a fried chicken dish without even trying it. It looked as unappetizing as you say it tasted.
