Review of Anthony Davids-Hoboken, NJ and a BTP Announcement

Reviews, The Dish | September 17, 2015 | By

Hello Readers,

Before I start to tell you all about Anthony Davids in Hoboken I first have a Public Service Announcement. I am going to be taking a short hiatus from the blog over the next couple of weeks. My fiancé and I will be travelling to 4 states in the next 4 weeks for weddings, wedding related activities and some vacation time. While I would love to say that I have stockpiled enough recipes and reviews to keep you all busy for a while, unfortunately life has just been a little too hectic lately! The good news is that all of our travels should bring some great content in the upcoming months!  I can’t wait to return in Mid-October and bring you autumn comfort food recipes, some pages from our travel diaries, and more great restaurants ideas to add to your bucket lists.


Pumpkin Chocolate Protein Overnight Oats Recipe

The Dish | September 15, 2015 | By

In honor of the first few crisp mornings alerting us that Fall is truly on it’s way I am bringing you the first pumpkin sighting on Behind the Plates. This is a repeat recipe from last year but, with overnight oats still still trending on the food circuit I thought you might need the reminder! Enjoy…


An Afternoon at A Mano in Ridgewood, NJ

Reviews, The Dish | September 11, 2015 | By

A girls’ afternoon led me to the busy little town of Ridgewood for the first time last month. It was a Friday afternoon and the center of town was a hub of activity. There were people enjoying leisurely lunches at one of the many restaurants, shoppers walking in and out of boutiques and brand name shops as well as families just out for relaxed walk around town.


Crispy Eggplant, Polenta and Caprese Stacks with Mom’s Garden Tomato Bolognese

Today is round two of the Italian Garden series recipes inspired by my Mom’s home cooking. If you didn’t read last week’s recipe post for Mom’s Garden Tomato Bolognese, head there first: (You’ll need this recipe to complete this meal!)


Mom’s Garden Tomato Bolognese Recipe

Visiting my parents’ house whenever there is a meal involved always gets me excited. My parents’ share an almost equal level of excitement around their passion for food and cooking as I do. So it goes without saying that there is rarely a bad or boring meal that it is put on the table. Not only do I get to take advantage of a tasty dish but I also get to just sit back, relax and enjoy the meal. It’s definitely a win-win for me! During one of my most recent visits my parents had come up with a recipe to use up the overflowing garden vegetables from the backyard. It was one of the best homemade meals I had in a while. I have had a lack of recipe inspiration the past few weeks. So when I couldn’t stop craving this dish for a whole week after devouring it, I decided to replicate and post about it in my parent’s honor.


September Foodie Happenings Around NJ

Hi Everyone,

September has arrived. It’s not only my birthday month (!!!), but it’s also the wind down to summer and the kickoff to cool autumn days. The first half of the month is filled with the last of the seafood festivals and beach-side events. The latter part of the month is the introduction to harvest related festivities. So enjoy one last weekend at the seaside and then welcome Fall with open arms. 🙂
