hello moonshine!

yesterday jonah and i, along with our friends eileen and evan, visited kings county distillery in bushwick. it's new york city's oldest whiskey distillery, and it's only 8 months old! it's a very small operation. they make moonshine (unaged corn whiskey) and new bourbon.
on the weekends they are offering distillery tours on the hour between 1 and 5 p.m., and they are also open for tastings and sales. read about it here.they have just started producing bourbon and you can only buy it at the distillery at this time. i love that our bottle is marked that it's from barrel #1! their moonshine is easy to find at stores in brooklyn.since i have met jonah i somehow know more about scotch, whiskey, and bourbon! :)

holiday magic...

thanks lonny!

brussel sprouts... cream-braised

my friend heather made this dish last year at a thanksgiving dinner and it was so delicious! i finally had a chance to make it this week. it's so simple and yummy! jonah broiled salmon to accompany the rich and creamy sprouts... a simple fall dinner.

pot pie fun!

last thursday jonah and i made mushroom pot pies with gouda biscuit topping. they were fun and satisfying to make! one of the fun things about making these pot pies was getting to buy oven safe bowls. i can't wait to use them to make french onion soup!
i made the filling the night before and jonah made the biscuit topping just before placing them in the oven which gave us time to enjoy manhattans with our friends while they baked!

a candlelit setting always helps create a cozy supper!
recipe is here. this recipe was good (not amzing though). i want to try a chicken pot pie next time!
