city bakery

one of my favorite ways to treat myself is a trip to city bakery, especially after a hard soul cycle class. they have fabulous coffee, baked good and prepared foods. our favorite is is the pretzel crossaint.

this coffee bar is a true west village gem located on Waverly place- the only downside is the coffee is so strong i will literally be buzzing around all day long after this cappuccino…


chopped brussel sprout salad

have you ever coveted food? we all covet bags, jewels, dogs. you name it, i have wanted it. this salad was inspired by frankies 570, a ┬árustic restaurant located in the west village. raw brussel┬ásprouts are surprisingly good, crunchy and not overly flavorful, mixed with cheese and seeds it’s a winner.

chopped brussel sprout salad with a lemon feta dressing

20 brussel sprouts

1 block feta cheese

4 tablespoons roasted & salted pumpkin seeds

1 lemon

olive oil

wash, dry and finely chopped your brussel sprouts and place into a large bowl.

take the feta cheese, cut it in half. crumble half onto the salad and place the other half in a small whisking bowl.

to the feta in the bowl add the juice of 1 squeezed lemon and olive oil to taste. mix all together until you have a creamy lemon feta dressing.
