So after announcing this wkend that I am not into dubstep, I ended up spending way too much time on youtube watching dubstep vids.  I decided I can’t just listen to dubstep music but I can watch people actually dubstep! Like this dude…

And that’s fo real! No effects! Check him out on Ellen

~homemade cookies & cream ice cream!~

After lots of ice cream making this summer, I knew I would next have to tackle my absolute most favorite ice cream flavor… Cookies & Cream.

Step 1: Making the cookies

And filling:

Disclaimer: I feel like I need to apologize for some of these ingredients… First, I didn’t want so much Hershey’s.  Technically you’re supposed to use dutch process dark but I couldn’t find any at our CT Stop & Shop! I shoulda done the shopping in NY first… Kinda the same goes for the Crisco. Ick. I needed shortening & there is such a thing as organic shortening, but again, that CT Stop & Shop!

Now to work.

This isn’t that new anymore but I’m obsessed!

I finally read his Brooklyn Mag cover article so I’ve had this playing on repeat.

Note: the line “the clothes don’t make the man its the man that makes the clothes”.  Did you know he has his own “in-house” design team (yes, a la Gaga)? Though I find this line rather gratuitous because I don’t think it fits in the song, I kind of appreciated it after reading the article.

I think I love this. The boy has so many shirts in the closet he refuses to get rid that I can’t wait to play with!

But I do kind of wish I had discovered this 4 months ago…

I’m finally back with another installment of “What’s in the box?!”

These arrived last night in the mail, after waiting weeks and weeks for them!

Even the inside of the box is cool! As is the dust bag…

Her look totally freaks me out, especially considering she’s only 24 (?).  I do enjoy her sound though… that breathy, gloomy jazz/pop.  However you describe it, I think this song is undeniably great!

Although I regularly write greenmarket picks for Nona Brooklyn I decided to try another Profile piece.  This time it was Tanoreen.  It’s in Bay Ridge (like 1 hr away!) and has been around for years but has recently had a massive PR explosion.  Everyone’s raving about it! Below are Rawia (the chef/owner, right) & her daughter, Jumana (admin).

It’s family style middle eastern/mediterranean food and its delicious!! Food photos after the jump!
