The Foodies are Coming Back!

After a summer hiatus, we’re going to resume posting!!
We’ve missed blogging this summer, but I have to say, there has been plenty going on for both of us. In July, after a two plus year long engagement, Shay and I got married.

In addition to speaking during the ceremony, Maddie was also a bridesmaid, and helped out a ton with wedding related tasks both before (as in the two years leading up to) and day of.

Most importantly, she was, as she always is, an incredible source of love, support, and calm.  I could not have done it all without her. Needless to say, Shay’s and my wedding took a lot of both Maddie’s and my time. Since then, Maddie has been traveling for most of the summer, and Shay and I have a new little member of our household, our dog, Toby. Thank you for patiently waiting while we were interrupted by the happy vicissitudes of life.

While we’ve been away, we have been scheming and have come up with some new ideas for Foodies.  Instead of mainly focusing on one type of post weekly, we’ll be creating new recipes in many different categories, reviewing restaurants and kitchen tools, and of course, still writing about cheese.  I am really excited to post outside the lines, and become more creative in the kitchen.

Coming up very soon we’ll have Vegan Tacos, Roasted Peach and Brie Sandwiches, and Healthy Breakfast Fruit Crisp.

Meatless Monday Will Return Next Monday

With the lovely but busy holiday weekend, I will be taking a very brief pause from posting, but Meatless Monday will be back next week with new recipes.  However, I will still be observing Meatless Monday tonight with a lovely salad and soup to go, completely vegetarian.   Thank you so much for continuing to follow us and we’ll look forward to sharing new recipes next week.

Series Switcheroo: “Cheese of the Week” to “Meatless Monday”

Cheese of the Week will be taking a hiatus in favor of a brand new series starting on Monday!  We have really enjoyed Cheese of the Week — discovering new cheeses, revisiting old favorites — but we are very excited for something new on Monday. We hope that rotating series will keep us all exploring different types of food! But not to worry, Cheese of the Week will be back.

Meatless Monday logoOn Monday, I will be joining the Meatless Monday campaign and posting a new Vegetarian or Vegan Recipe weekly. I have started exploring vegan dishes and am so excited to share some of the wonderful recipes I have stumbled across and created.  As is true of so many great things in my life, Maddie introduced me to this campaign and gave me the idea for the new series. I hope you all enjoy it, and for all of the cheese lovers out there, don’t worry, there will definitely be some cheesey recipes in Meatless Mondays.

Happy Thanksgiving from the Foodies!

For many, Thanksgiving epitomizes the holiday spirit. It’s a time for good food, good wine, and good company. It’s also a time for reflecting on and appreciating all of the above. For Gabrielle and myself, it is especially meaningful. The eve of Thanksgiving is when we mark the anniversary of the night we met, on a fateful Wednesday years ago. Though this year we celebrate on opposite coasts, as she hosts a family meal in San Francisco, and B and I cook up a feast at my dad’s house in New York, I think I speak for both of us when I say (or type) that we’ve never been closer… or more grateful for each other.

On behalf of us both, I’d like to thank you, the reader, for joining us on the journey of food and friendship that is this blog. If you haven’t already, please feel free to subscribe via email at the top-right of the homepage. While we’ve had an understandable lull in posting this holiday week, you won’t want to miss the recipes (and mouth-watering pictures) that will be the aftermath of our respective Thanksgiving tables. We wish everyone out there a happy holiday, and that in the coming year you may have ever more blessings for which to be thankful.

Happy Thanksgiving!
