You can make homemade Strawberry Milk with just about any kind of milk to fit your particular tastes or dietary needs.  This time around I made it using vanilla almond milk to make a vegan version, and it turned out great!

One of the things I am looking forward to in New York is exploring the restaurant scene.  The options are, quite literally, endless.

Whenever I have visited in the past, my sister and I have always found a time to enjoy a meal at our favorite Indian restaurant on the Upper West Side.  Everything on the menu is absolutely amazing with flavors so intricate and complicated, I wouldn’t dare try to recreate them at home.  There is one, however, that I thought I could swing – a Mango Lassi.

Cue the Linda Richman voice:  “An ‘Egg Cream’ contains neither egg nor cream.  Discuss.”   

It is unknown exactly why this classic drink is called an “egg cream.”  Some say it was a way of describing its richness at a time when both eggs and cream were expensive, luxury ingredients.
