In 2014, after being out of business five years, a rejuvenated @tavernonthegreen returned to @centralparknyc. Saturday brunch was about great service and a world-class menu. Behold, Avocado Poached Eggs atop smoked salmon, finished with cilantro pesto. Swipe: Brunch porn! Shared a Roasted Fig Arugula Salad with aged Bresaola beef and indescribable whipped goat cheese. The Vegetable Frittata with fingerling potatoes also was a headliner. #brunchnyc#brunchporn#poachedeggs#smokedsalmon#cilantropesto#centralpark#tavernonthegreen#roastedfigs#arugula
A little off topic, but I felt I needed to give a shout-out!!! First of all, I love my girl’s mugs and you have to go check her out and get one!! @pickmecups Now, I just stumbled upon this coffee alternative and I have to say.....It’s AMAZING!! I haven’t had coffee of YEARS! And I miss it! It is one of the things that I gave up and truly miss! So, this alternative to coffee is the best I have found so far and I didn’t even know I was really searching. I had come across an herbal tea that I love, that was close enough for me and it was a seasonal item a few years ago. I stocked up on that, but it’s gone. Now I found this! Anyone that loves coffee but can’t do the caffeine, check this out! #coffig#roastedfigs#coffeealternative#awesomesauce#amazingalternative#mynewcoffee#shitsabouttogetreal#upinthismug#coffeemug#myteamug#nocaffeine Now, on to soaping #lovemyjob#workday
Squash season is in full effect! You’ve probably noticed my excitement for this versatile vegetable. I can’t wait to make this Ginger Pecan Zucchini Bread with the last bit of summer squash I have on hand.
Sweet, spicy with the perfect balance of moisture to crunch. This recipe truly is hard to beat. The full recipe is up on my blog, link in bio.
Figs roasted in red wine, scented with cinnamon and clove, deliver a deep earthy flavor and smooth, dense texture. Fresh figs offer a bright, light counterpoint. Together, they sit atop a cloud of whipped ricotta cream flavored with clover honey. Flecks of cocoa nibs visually accent the plating, complement the braised fruit and drizzle of wine sauce reduction, while offering a tasty crunch. @yossyarefi #redwine#roastedfigs#whippedricotta#honey#fig#figdessert#cheesedessert#ricotta#cocoanibs
Do you have a certain food that always brings you back to a certain place in time? For me it’s fresh figs and eating them during my travels through Greece 🇬🇷😍 Since they are almost out of season here in California, I figured I would reminisce from my travels and make these Balsamic Honey Roasted Figs perfect for the fall season 🤗
They’re a great snack or even dessert that takes under 30 minutes to prepare! The full recipe can be found at the link in my bio.
