A Very Berry Milkshake

June 22, 2015 | Posted by Stephanie Banyas

Farmers market tables are loaded with berries (at last). And what better thing to do with them than mix them into some ice cream?! When Bobby and I were testing milkshake recipes for Bobby’s Burger Palace many years ago, I learned some interesting things about fruit milkshakes, especially fresh berry milkshakes.

Rhubarb: you either love it or hate it. There really seems to be no gray area when it comes to this ruby red vegetable…that’s right, I said vegetable. In the US it is considered a fruit, but it actually is a vegetable!

Yo, Title Boxing Club!

May 4, 2015 | Posted by Stephanie Banyas

Have you seen many out of shape boxers? I haven’t. So, a few weeks ago, I, along with my colleague and fellow B-Teamer, Elyse, headed over to Title Boxing Club located in Hell’s Kitchen to take a boxing class and what we got.well,.pardon the pun…was one Hell of a workout!

Of all sports, boxing is one of the most physically demanding. It requires a blend of power, speed, balance and focus combined with excellent overall conditioning that results in a body that is lean and sculpted. .

Any excuse to have Mexican food is fine by us! As I am sure you can imagine, on any given day at the Bobby Flay office, there is a lot going on. Our typical day includes quick lunches at our desk while working. Every once in a while, however, for holidays and occasions, we like to make lunch a little more special.

An Easy, Healthy, Springy Seafood Dish

April 22, 2015 | Posted by Elyse Tirrell

During this last stretch of cool weather, I'm doing everything I can to think spring! I'm trying to will in a new season...and one of my tactics is making this light, beautiful fish dish overflowing with bright spring vegetables (carrots, zucchini and green onion -- yum!), and steamed in parchment paper. If you observe Lent, it would also be a great meal to serve your family for Friday dinner!

If you celebrate Passover, you probably already know the simple pleasure that is a warm plate of matzo brei. If you’re like me, and you’d never even heard of it (matzo brie? Like the cheese? No, BREI, as in rhymes with “fry”), then here’s a surprisingly tasty, homey new breakfast for you to try!

My New (Post-Easter) Normal: Saffron-Pickled Egg Tartines with Green Harissa

April 4, 2015 | Posted by Christine Sanchez

We are a family that realllllly gets into our egg-dying. It is our “Easter normal” to have over 3 dozen (beautifully decorated, if I may add) hard-boiled eggs in the refrigerator. Post-Easter, there are only so many egg salad sandwiches and deviled eggs that one can eat...I needed to find an alternative. Enter the pickled egg.

Ham I Am! Four Glazes for Your Easter Ham + A Ham Primer

April 1, 2015 | Posted by Stephanie Banyas

I do not really like eggs, but I like ham. I like it in a house, I would eat it with a mouse (which, unfortunately, is a real possibility in Manhattan). I will eat it here or there or anywhere…I will eat it plain but, truth be told, I really prefer ham glazed. Second only to turkey, a glazed ham is an iconic holiday centerpiece, and was always served for Easter dinner when I was growing up.

A Passover Dessert Different from All Others

March 30, 2015 | Posted by Stephanie Banyas

Most of us are lucky if we have one set of parents that love us unconditionally. I am fortunate to have two: my biological parents, Rose and George Banyas, and my surrogate parents, Barry and Sheryl Zukofsky. Rose and George are Christian, so with them I celebrate Christmas and Easter. Barry and Sheryl are Jewish, and with them I celebrate Rosh Hashanah, Hanukkah and Passover. In other words, my year is filled with great food and very special family gatherings. I am very lucky indeed!

Sweatin' LA Style at Training Mates

March 19, 2015 | Posted by Stephanie Banyas

A few weeks ago, I had the great fortune to leave the freezing, cold, gloomy, Northeast weather behind and escape to the sunny, warm, happy West Coast weather (thanks to my very generous boss, a.k.a Bobby Flay). My partner in fitness Elyse Tirrell came along for the (plane) ride and one of the first things we did, after shedding our down coats and winter boots for tank tops and sandals (and eating a plateful of Cha Cha Chicken), was search out a hot LA workout. Hello, Training Mate…or should I say G’Day!
