FOOD: Fatta Cuckoo [NYC]

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/bec-300x250.jpg

Ah, brunch.  Is there anything better?  The other day, my roommates and a few friends went to Fatta Cuckoo to catch up and talk all things Halloween.  And I think it’s safe to say that we all had a great time. This place is small, like really small.  But if you make a reservation you [...]

RECIPE: Apartment-Friendly Nutella

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/DSC_0588-e1413416998895.jpg

It started with a jar of hazelnuts. I needed a handful for something, somewhere, sometime and the leftovers lingered on my shelf. What else to make with hazelnuts except homemade Nutella? I thought it would be a long, involved process, but turns out, homemade Nutella is pretty quick and simple– simple enough to make in [...]

BITE OF THE MOMENT: I Left My Heart at Heirloom Market BBQ [Atlanta]

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/2014-10-11-12.48.29-2-300x250.jpg

I have very few regrets in life, but one of the biggest to date might just have to be: not carrying the rest of the meal pictured above on the plane back home to NYC. Dramatic? Not if you’ve had it.  A pretty nondescript shack in a nondescript area right off the Perimeter, Heirloom Market [...]

RECIPE: Fried Pickles & Spicy Ketchup

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/IMG_5832-e1413418571856.jpg

Football truly bores me into a deep “my eyes are open but I’m not actually paying attention” trance, but it manages to pull out one huge benefit–friends and families gather to eat delicious snacks and sip on tasty beverages to add some life to the snooze-fest (sorry I’m not sorry to all the fans out there). In [...]

FOOD: Sunny & Annie Deli [NYC]

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/Sunny-Annie-Deli-300x250.jpg

There are quite literally loads of delis all over New York.  Bodegas of every variety line the streets, especially downtown.  But one seems to stand above the rest–and not just because it’s a block away from my apartment. In a New York Magazine article about Sunny & Annie Deli, they said that there could be [...]

FOOD EVENT: Heritage BBQ at the Taste of DC

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/pork2-300x250.jpg

There might be a debate about the significance of Christopher Columbus “discovering” lands inhabited by indigenous people, but there’s no question about what I most enjoy about this weekend, The Taste of DC.  And what’s even better than the Taste of DC is its newest addition, the Heritage BBQ presented by Goose Island Beer Co. Tucked [...]

FOOD: DC’s Lunchbox

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/lbbanh-300x250.jpg

I found myself in Friendship Heights and secretly wished I packed a picnic basket so I could enjoy the awesome weather we were having. Although my culinary skills were useless at this point, I found a better option inside of Chevy Chase Pavilion. Open for a few months, I decided to grab a takeout meal [...]

DRINK RECIPE: The Cider Mule

http://www.thecouchsessions.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/10/DSC_0586-e1412560747594.jpg

This cocktail comes to you courtesy of New England’s fall harvest: the time of year when apples get more kitchen-play than the lime needed for a Moscow Mule (vodka + ginger beer + lime). Downeast Cider‘s original hard apple cider is the perfect candidate to offset the tingly kick of ginger beer with its bubbly [...]
