Oak Haven Table + Bar Walks The Local Food Walk

It's taken me forever to get to this review, which is crazy, since I'm really excited to spread the word about Oak Haven Table + Bar in New Haven.

As you know, not all restaurants that say they support local food, actually follow through on that commitment. Lately, I have been experiencing a lot of half-hearted local sourcing by restaurants and I was becoming frustrated. All I can say is that Oak Haven Table + Bar has renewed my faith. They talk the talk and walk the walk ... and it's delicious.

Valentine's Day With Whole Foods Market

We don't usually dine out on Valentine's Day. It's always so crowded. I'd much rather stay home and cook, or order in, and just spend some quality quiet time with my better half.

If staying in sounds like a good plan to you too, well, Whole Foods Market Danbury gave us the hook up on how they can make staying in on Valentine's Day easy and delicious.

Is That Cauliflower In My Hummus?

At the beginning of the year I think I saw a headline declaring cauliflower is the new kale. I'm not sure who determines the "it" vegetable but it was probably time for kale to name a successor.

Trendy or not, I've always liked cauliflower. And lately, maybe through subliminal messaging, I have been try to use it in new ways, especially as a carb/grain alternative.
