Toby's Estate Coffee

Today I finally got a chance to stop by Toby's Estate Coffee, the new coffee roaster in Williamsburg.  Americanos are my drink of choice and what I judge all new coffee shops on, so naturally that's what I went for.  At $2.75 the price is the same or lower than some of the other places I frequent.  The competition in the neighborhood is pretty stiff but I have to say they made a very good americano and I was really pleased with it. 
One of the things that I was impressed with besides the coffee itself was this amazing to go cup.  Form meeting function perfectly with the heat sleeve built right into the cup.  Awesome.

Chicken Biscuits

I wish I lived just a little bit closer to Pies 'n' Thighs so that I could eat these more often.  I had been hitting it up about once a week over the summer but I haven't been much since it got colder out.  They are the perfect combination of sweet and spice wrapped in a flakey biscuit.  Awesome.

Working on new recipes

So I am finally getting back to it and I'm working on some new things for the new year. Here's a teaser...


Migas breakfast TACOS because breakfast burritos are kind of lame.
