A time out

May 17th, 2013

I was all geared up to share a delicious summer hand pie recipe with you that I made for a little adventure Aaron, Claire, Maude, and I were going to take- then my life turned upside down. Early this week my sweet 5 week old daughter was rushed to Stanford University with heart problems after a routine doctor appointment led us down a hellish rabbit hole. Needless to say the post did not go up and the hand pies were hurriedly grabbed on the way out the door to the ER and became the only thing we ate in a day. Claire is stable and in the hands of amazing doctors and we’re hopeful that she’s going to be great and live a fantastic life but we’re in for a long haul. Sadly whipping up something in the kitchen (and photographing it) is not going to happen anytime soon- so please bear with me as I dedicate everything in my powers to helping my daughter get better. I look forward to the day when I can sit down and write that hand pie post with a babbling little lady by my side.

holiday giveaway 2: enormous champion tea towel

December 5th, 2012

First of all, I have to start this post thanking everyone who came out to the Remedy Quarterly Issue 11: Comfort Launch Party + Art Show last night! It was so much fun seeing old friends and new, including some of our amazing contributors. I have to give a big shout out to Art in the Age Craft Spirits for sponsoring the cocktails (oh how I wish I could have one!). Keep an eye out for a cocktail later this week. But now that the party is over, I’m going to go ahead and rest for a little bit.

While I do that, I wanted to share our second (and totally awesome) giveaway, from my good friends Jason and Jordan aka Enormous Champion. Is that not a lovely tea towel?! If you’re not familiar with their work, mosey on over to their website and take a gander… you might just fall in love.

Hello friends! You may have noticed that posts have been a bit spotty lately. I’ve been traveling more than expected over the last month and haven’t been as successful as I’d like in keeping up with my posting schedule. But here’s some good news: I have a few interviews that I’m quite proud of, one on great new foodie-centric site The New Potato and another on Good Food Jobs, a great site not only for finding food-related jobs but also chats with cool food people.

I’m currently on a crazy whirlwind trip that started in San Francisco for business (and a little pleasure); I then flew to LA for the first time to mix drinks for our underground Supper Club this weekend; then I’m flying back to NYC to cater the Cream event as The Good Cheer Co. Whew! So much stuff, so much fun and I’m snapping photos the entire time. So while I’m not doing so hot on the blog side, you can check out my adventures over on Instagram, my username is kellycarambula.

Hope you have a great weekend!!

Remedy Quarterly at Renegade Craft Fair

June 20th, 2012

I’m thrilled to be a vendor at the 8th Annual Renegade Craft Fair this weekend. If you’re in the New York area, the Renegade Craft Fair is one of my favorite events of the year and a must-visit if you ask me. It’s a great place to discover new artists and independent makers all in one, well-curated space. This year there will be over 300 vendors all on the Williamsburg waterfront.

April 10th, 2012

Since I mentioned it last week, I wanted to share one of my other ventures with you. My friend Caroline and I have started a little catering business called the The Good Cheer Co. We’ve been collaborating for a few years on an underground supper club and we had so much fun that we decided that it’s time to do even more. We’re slowly gearing up as we get some technicalities in order, but I can’t wait to share more with you as we grow. Go have a peek and let me know what you think. Woohoo!

Oh, and we got a nice shout out in yesterday’s Daily Candy Spring Wedding Guide.

apple smash

December 9th, 2011

Friends, I have been a bad blogger (please note the lack of food-related posts in the past few months). I have been busy with some new, exciting projects as well as good old Remedy Quarterly and quite frankly, I’ve hardly cooked anything in the past month. And the things I have cooked certainly aren’t noteworthy. Boo! That’s life I guess, there’s only one me and unfortunately I’ve had to focus on a other projects lately, but I promise, I’ll be back and I’ll make some magical treats that will make all of us happy. Until then I have a few things to tell you about (which might explain my absence).

First—check out this sweet poster I whipped up! I love happy hour—I like thinking up new concoctions and I like drinking them—which led me to this little revelations… Happy hour is the best hour! You can pick one up in our shop.

Second—I’ll be selling Remedy Quarterly at the BUST craftacular this weekend and I’d love to meet you! I’ll be at booth #52 (which is near the exit) right next to my buds Enormous Champion.

Third and last— how about that cocktail? I spied it in the New York Times a few weeks ago and put it on my list of easy and delicious cocktails to try. True to form, a quick smash of a few apple slices paired with white rum, simple syrup, lemon juice and a dash of bitters. A dusting of freshly ground cinnamon tops the whole thing off and makes for one lovely and delicious cocktail. It’s definitely a rum-forward kind of drink, but I kind of like that it’s different and unexpected during these chilly days.

Cheers! To a busy weekend, meeting new friends and tasty drinks!

Apple Smash
from the New York Times
makes 1 cocktail

2 large apple slices, like Honeycrisp
2 ounces white rum
1/2 ounce lemon juice
1/2 ounce simple syrup*
1 dash bitters, like Fee Brothers Barrel-Aged
Cinnamon stick.

Mash an apple slice in the base of a glass with a muddler.
Add ingredients other than the cinnamon; shake and strain into a highball glass filled with crushed ice. Garnish with a whole apple slice dusted with freshly grated cinnamon.

*To make simple syrup, combine 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup water in a small saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until sugar dissolves. Let cool, then transfer to a very clean jar or bottle. Cover and keep refrigerated until ready to use.
