Desperately Seeking ______________ on Sale...

What are you desperately seeking on sale?

Food Therapy

Good food is as satisfying as a good sale. So from time to time (probably more than that because I'm a foodie and I love to eat), I'll be providing some food therapy. Be forewarned, I'm an adventurous eater with a HUGE sweet tooth. If you're in NYC, I hope you try some of these spots. If you do, LMK what you think. Bon appetit!

Video Reviews

While picture reveals of bags are nice. Video reviews of bags are better! As such, I will endeavor to post as many video reviews of bags as possible. However, I will only be reviewing bags that I like. Life is too short to review bags that I dislike. Plus, at the end of the day, it really is just a matter of personal opinion/taste.


Food Therapy: Childhood Comfort Foods Gone Gourmet!

When the weather is gloomy, all I want is comfort foods.  So I was elated when I discovered these two lovely joints that serve gourmet versions of two of my favorite childhood comfort foods:  hotdogs and mac&cheese!! (Note: These are not restaurants but gourmet fast food joints.  I know, I know...that's an oxymoron.)
  • Dogmatic:  I love a good hotdog and at Dogmatic, all the hotdogs (or should I say gourmet sausages) are fantastic.  You have a choice of beef, chicken, pork, turkey or lamb sausage (that you pair with a yummy sauce) for only $4.50.  What makes Dogmatic's hotdogs is really the bun-that-is-not-a-bun.  It's a slim french baguette that they heat from the inside out.  Now I am not one to pay $2.50 for a street vendor's mushy hotdog (that's just highway robbery) but I will pay $4.50 for Dogmatic's outstanding hotdog.

  • MacBar:  Oh mac& use to come out of that little blue box.  Now you're all grown up at MacBar.  I love cheese and I love pasta; together, it's a perfect combination.  When I went to MacBar this past weekend, we couldn't just try one mac&cheese dish, we tried five dishes!  They were: The Classic (my favorite b/c you can't beat the original), Mac Stroganoff (very tasty), Mac Lobsta' (good but my least favorite), Mac 'Shroom (this is just plain addictive) and Mac Quack (if you like duck, this one is for you).  The medium sized dishes were generously portioned and cost $7.99 - $12.99.  The small sized dishes are enough for one and cost $5.99 - $8.99.
