Weekend eats (and drinks)

Ah, the weekend.

  1. Oh, Upper Crust, how I miss you so.
    Really, though, none of them are as good as the original, on Charles Street. The Newbury Street outpost just doesn’t quite cut it. . .

  2. I am jealous of a couple of things.
    Your proximity to such cool little food places.
    Your mad photog skills. Are you a full auto kinda gal or do you fritter with the settings on the camera?

  3. Laura says:

    What kind of pan do you use for your fried eggs? I’m at that level of frustration with my (Circulon, ugh!) cookware that I’m moments away from chucking them all out the window and starting over. Suggestions?

  4. Jennifer Hess says:

    Thanks, everyone!

    Chris – I’m a point-and-shoot girl, working with a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H2. I’d love a camera with a little more horsepower but I wouldn’t have a clue what to do with it!

    Laura – I’m such a dork for our well-seasoned cast iron skillet that you’d probably think it my pan of choice for eggs, but actually I’ve never had luck with it. What works best for me is an inexpensive little nonstick Bialetti saute pan. We picked it up at Broadway Panhandler when we still lived in Brooklyn and it has been my favorite pan for egg-cookery ever since. Well, fried and scrambled eggs, at least. 🙂

  5. Laura says:

    Thanks! I, too, adore the cast iron, but it still eats some of my scrambled eggs whenever I use it, the greedy devil. Thanks for dropping a brand name! I’m so wary of committing to any particular pan if I don’t have a real-life recommendation.

  6. Heidi in NYC says:

    What is the red sauce you put on your eggs? I know you have said before, but I can’t remember. Love your updates, always makes me hungry

  7. That egg….and that chicken! Haha, chicken and egg. Anyway, I had to make that egg photo an instant fave on Flickr! Thanks for the link back to your harissa recipe; it looks divine. But I have no food processor. 😦 Ah…until I get one…

  8. Hi Jenn Everything looks delish! The fried chicken with greens, biscuit and gravy look
    so inviting I can hardly control myself from going to the chicken and cooking something similar. I see you have some gravy under the biscuit. Were can I get a good recipe for white gravy? I would love to make some good down home gravy with biscuits and have been trying many recipes which have been unsuccessful.
    Please share yours!!! Hope you are doing well. Warm Regards Carmen
