More Than Just A Cup o' Joe

Coffee. It is how I start nearly every day. I sip two cups of joe as I peruse my digital news feeds, catch up on favorite blogs, and watch the obligatory cute cat video. For me coffee is about the aroma, flavor and yes, the ritual. Without it, the day just feels off.


I may deeply enjoy coffee but Ed Freedman, owner of Shearwater Organic Coffee Roasters in Trumbull, CT, is beyond passionate about it.

Guest Review: Elegant Dining at X2O

I was more than happy to oblige when an old college friend asked if I would lend him space on the blog for a review of a restaurant he visited for his birthday. If a meal was that inspiring - how could I say no? I've always known him to have a penchant for writing, but this is his first food review.

Recipe of the Week: Zucchini Noodles

In this second installment of the Local Food Rocks + Max's Best Bootcamp Recipe of the Week video we show you another easy, delicious carb/starchy food alternative - Zucchini Noodles with Sundried Tomato Pesto.


I have to admit that I was skeptical about this whole concept of faux noodles. I'm unashamed of my pasta love - could this really satisfy?

Turkey Burger with Herbed Yogurt Sauce

On a balmy sumer evening we grill. it's that simple. I was craving burgers but didn't want anything too heavy. I decided to fire up the grill and do up some turkey burgers.


Don't be fooled, with the right ingredients a simple turkey burger can be just as flavorful as a regular burger.

Brunch At The Post

I'm not ashamed to admit that I like brunch. I've always been a fan of brunch. It's the best of breakfast and lunch. Seriously, what's not to like? I know there are a lot of brunch haters out there. Haters going to hate. Guess that just means more for me!


Speaking of brunch ... Parallel Post in Trumbull has joined the brunch phenomenon, launching a Sunday Brunch menu complete with a make your own Bloody Mary bar. As part of the launch, we were among a group of fellow food bloggers invited to give it a try.
