Let's Get Naked...Pizza!

 By: Jessica Cickay

When it comes to pizza chains today, the word “naked” never really comes to mind for multiple reasons. Not only do I rarely associate the bedroom with the dining room– you may leave both feeling satisfied, but only one leaves you with a greasy cheese burns on the roof of your mouth, unless you’re into that sort of thing – but fast-food pizza is now about the bigger, the bolder, the “badder” for you versus the basics. It’s obvious that the people behind the newly opened pizza chain in Coolidge Corner know what they’re doing marketing-wise with a sensory-grabbing name like Naked Pizza, but after eating their not-so-sinful and satisfying pies, it’s also obvious they know what they’re doing in the kitchen.

XVI - The Ultimate Midtown Manhattan Rooftop Lounge!

By: Anne M. Raso

After hearing all the hubbub from beauty and fashion editor friends, we couldn't resist visiting the hotspot XVI, designed by the Miami-based Francois Frossard. XVI is on the 16th Floor of the Hilton Garden Inn, and you enter on Eighth Avenue through a dark passageway that feels a little like being at the old Mudd Club--it's kind of opposite of what the bright airy space upstairs at the actual lounge is like.

Delicatessen New York: Because Beautiful People Need Comfort Food Too!

By: Anne M. Raso

We were lucky enough to score an invite to Delicatessen's recent Summer In Soho affair, which brought together the food press, regular customers and just some good looking peeps from "da nabe." The whole purpose of the affair was for exec chef Michael Ferraro and pastry chef Kate Cowan to show off how they've tweaked the menu for the height of summer, when the all-day eatery is at its most crowded. In case you have not been to Delicatessen, it specializes in"international comfort food" although the beautiful people who flock there hardly look like they gorge themselves on the creative and generously portioned cuisine there! Delicatessen truly looks like a set from Sex and the City, but the food is super luscious and they are not afraid to deep fry when they have to!

Taste Testing the New McDonald’s Mango Pineapple Smoothie

By: Finance Foodie

The Mango Pineapple Smoothie, made using mango and pineapple purees, low-fat yogurt and ice, is  McDonald’s new addition to their Real Fruit Smoothie line. Due to my disappointment in the Strawberry Lemonade, I was slightly hesitant to try their newest summer drink. However, after a twenty minute walk outside in the sweltering afternoon sun, I was in desperate need of a respite from the heat -- and nothing screams "cool-off!" for me better than an ice cold smoothie.

Stuck on Food Stains? Cascade Complete All-in-1 ActionPacs to the Rescue!

"Rub a dub dub..."

Now that I am officially f-unemployed, I've been spending my freetime cooking and baking up a storm in my kitchen. Although making my own meals has been a super fun adventure (and much healthier to boot -- I've already lost two pounds!), I've definitely had a hard time motivating myself to clean up all the pots, pans and plates that get dirty in the process. Most of the time you'll find my kitchen sink filled with this:
