Macarons by Mad MacI have a confession to make--I am a night owl; when everyone else is in bed, I'm raring to go. You would think I would use this time of quiet solitude wisely--working on client's plans or writing a blog post, but no, I'm up late nearly every night tuning in to my guilty pleasure-Food Network's Diners, Drive-In's and Dives. When chef Guy Fieri drives his red GTO up to a local dive, I know I'm going to witness great cooking. Definitely not good for the diet, my Food Network fix is always fascinating and inspiration for me to try something new in the kitchen. Today kicks off the New York Wine & Food Festival, a three day event presented by Food & Wine magazine benefiting the Food Bank For New York City. My daughter (the perfect sous chef) and I will be attending a cake decorating session with Duff Goldman of Charm City Cakes on Sunday. If you are in town, the festival is a must for serious foodies or anyone who is really hungry!
