We think desserts have a bad rap. Sure, they aren’t exactly on the healthy side. What they often are is store bought and over-processed. Even the most liberal of sweets enthusiasts are sure to come in contact with a little sugar this month, so why not get in the V Day spirit, and try your… more →

Walking into Flannery Klette-Kolton’s immaculate Alphabet City kitchen is a breath of fresh air, especially where young foodies are concerned.

Here at Fooding Kitchen, we can’t seem to get enough of our Swissmar Peeler Trio which matches our workspace nearly perfectly. That’s not why we bought it though. Well, not completely anyway… In reality, these technicolor peelers are just as useful as they are fun to look at. One features a regular peeling blade for… more →

It’s far too often that eating out becomes a sneaky way to help yourself to a greasy meal. Deep fried items and sugary sauces taste far better than anything we could have conjured up at home, and the lack of nutritional information makes us feel like we’re in the clear for ordering once-healthy items that… more →

One of our favorite cold weather recipes! The apples and peanuts feel hearty, and the colorful nature of the dish will lighten up the mood around the dinner table.
