Review: Trader Joe's Dried Persimmons


You guys, Trader Joe's has dried persimmons! I've never seem them sold dried before. They don't have any added sugar. They are sliced, not dried whole like got gam (곶감). (For a picture of how Korean persimmons are traditionally dried, click here.)

Restaurant: Audubon Boston (reopened)

Another picture post, this time from the recently re-opened Audubon. I've eaten there before the owner change/renovation (? not sure what happened) but the food is now even better!

Love With Food Box(es): August 2014

Love With Food August--Size comparison of GF box (bottom) and Tasting box (on top)
The Love with Food box is a monthly subscription box that's packed with unique food offerings. I've been a subscriber for over a year, and it's definitely one of my favorite ways to discover new and exciting brands. Last month, I announced I was switching to the Gluten Free box. I accidentally lied--I actually cancelled too late to not receive the August tasting box, so I get this opportunity to review both, side by side.

The GF box so far looks awesome. There are a few repeats from previous tasting boxes (I'll note them below) but it has the same great selection of new snacks that make this box super fun! The pamphlets this month have changed and now include handy reference tags saying whether items are Gluten Free, Organic, Vegan, etc.

Restaurant: Uni Sashimi Bar, Boston, MA


Hey look, words!

Recently, my husband and I celebrated our second wedding anniversary, which we obviously used as an excuse to try some expensive food. My neighbor had recommended Uni Sashimi Bar, which is in the Eliot Hotel, as one of his favorites. We decided to try the Omakase menu (chef's choice).

These pictures are from Flames II, which is a Carribean/American restaurant in Brigham circle. Their jerk chicken is divine.
