AN EVERYDAY EGG SOUFFLÉ

Tori Trogani - March 31, 2017

Like many people, one of my New Years resolutions was to eat better. Towards the end of last year I was very busy and had gotten into bad habits consisting of a lot of take out and late night pasta before passing out and doing it all over again the next day. But I’ve been doing pretty well! With a fantastic resource like Pinterest to farm for ideas, I’ve been able to experiment and find some amazing recipes that are tasty and healthy. The only tricky one has been breakfast. I like to have something with a bit of protein ideally but a girl can only eat so many eggs! I’ve had them fried, poached, and scrambled and I love eggs, don’t get me wrong, but it can get a bit repetitive. That’s why when a family friend recipe shared this recipe for an egg soufflé, I was immediately intrigued.

A TASTE OF IRELAND AT A BOSTON COMMON PUB

Julia Trogani - January 16, 2017

Happy Birthday to my baby girl!

My daughter Cassie, who turned 23 this month, is a lover of all things Celtic (check out her Instagram thebirchandstag) so we treated her to an early dinner at Emmets Pub on Beacon Street in Boston. Only a short walk around the corner from Boston Common, the Massachusetts State House and the Omni Parker House, this is one of the city’s most authentically Irish Pubs, with traditional music each Saturday afternoon between 3:00pm and 6:00pm. We were looking forward to good food, good drinks and good music.

A DECADENT HOT CHOCOLATE RECIPE

Tori Trogani - December 13, 2016

On a cold day, is there anything more satisfying than a good mug of hot chocolate?  And I mean a really good one. In fact, I would say I’m a bit of a hot chocolate snob and I think I may have perfected the recipe for the best hot chocolate, but I’ll let you be the judge.

I DO LIKE TO BE BESIDE THE SEASIDE…EATING PASTA

Tori Trogani - July 4, 2016

Happy 4th of July! Our post is up late today, I know, but I’m very excited to tell you about the 4th of July outing we just had so you can check out some of amazing places we went. We decided to take a trip down to Newport tonight to see the Newport Harbor Fireworks (post going up on Wednesday!), but on the way, we stopped for dinner at Pasta Beach.

TAPPING INTO SUMMER ON PROVIDENCE’S EAST SIDE

Julia Trogani - June 8, 2016

There is really nothing I like better than grilled food. With summer weather still a few weeks off, and cooler weather dragging on this spring, I decided to buy a large cast iron grill pan and get my summer food fix on….

SPILL THE BEANS: REDEFINING ARTISAN IN WAYLAND SQUARE

Tori Trogani - June 6, 2016

We  actually first stumbled upon L’artisan while in pursuit of a totally different bakery/restaurant. The family got really into the show Unique Eats on the Cooking Channel about two years back and when a place in Providence got featured we knew we had to check it out. We set out to find La Laiterie at Farmstead in Wayland Square with a lot of excitement only to find that they had since closed and the owners had moved back to Boston where they had opened a new restaurant called Townsman (which we are dying to try out!).

But it wasn’t a wasted trip because while we were driving around, confused, looking for La Laiterie we found the beautiful L’artisan Café & Bakery instead!

DUCKS AND BUNNIES, AND DRINKS, OH MY!

Julia Trogani - June 1, 2016

I kept hearing about the Duck & Bunny from friends…and seeing Facebook posts of delectable treats…and a pretty little garden to relax and unwind in. Curious,  I looked up their website: It’s a “snuggery,” it said – a real word meaning a “cosy and comfortable place”. Well, who wouldn’t want to spend time at a snuggery?

LET’S DO BRUNCH: THE BOROUGH’S BEST BRUNCH

Tori Trogani - May 23, 2016

One of my first jobs out of college was working at a little jewelry store in Stonington Borough. This ended up being a good and a bad thing: good, because I got the chance to explore all the wonderful shops and restaurants this tiny enclave of Connecticut has to offer, and bad, because I got the chance to explore all the wonderful shops and restaurants this tiny enclave of Connecticut has to offer and, subsequently, was extremely broke.

Despite being post-college poor, on Sundays I would sometimes like to treat myself to slightly more fancy fare than usual by visiting Noah’s Restaurant just down the road for their famous brunch.

LET’S DO BRUNCH: WE’LL TAKE OUR EASTER EGGS POACHED, PLEASE…

Julia Trogani - March 28, 2016

I love brunch. Especially Sunday Brunch. And Easter is certainly one of the most festive Sundays to brunch, whether at home or at an excellent restaurant. Living in Providence this year gave us the perfect opportunity to sample one of the many unique brunch options this city has to offer, so I invited my sister Amy and booked our family a table at Waterman Grille in Richmond Square on Providence’s East Side.
