In our continued search for the hottest and best workouts in New York City, a few weeks ago we signed up for a class at CityRow in the Union Square neighborhood of Manhattan. A fifty-minute rowing class? We were intrigued and a bit scared, quite frankly.

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.

Rolling Stone magazine named it the "hot" exercise of 1993 and indoor cycling has maintained its status as one of the most popular group classes at fitness clubs all around the world. I, personally, have been taking Spin classes since 1994 (ummm, I started when I was 10, I swear) when it arrived at my local Equinox in NYC. From the moment I adjusted my seat and handle bars and started pedaling, I was immediately addicted!. Fast forward 21 years, and indoor cycling continues to be more popular than ever and is still a big part of my workout routine (I take classes 3 to 4 times a week.) I am happy to say, it still challenges me and keeps me fit and I love it just as much today as I did the first time I tried it!

We love radishes sliced in salads, served with butter and salt on a baguette, and garnishing a Bloody Mary. But we especially love our radishes roasted. (Yes, roasted!)

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!

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.

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!

What’s pale yellow, great with Bolognese, and perfect for twirling around a fork? Not pasta, but one of my favorite winter ingredients: spaghetti squash.

A few weeks ago, we decided to give FlyBarre a try. We arrived at FlyBarre’s Flatiron location on 21st Street in Manhattan dressed in our workout clothes and ready for the challenge… Or were we?

As the old proverb says, “March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb.” After an exceptionally brutal winter in NYC, it should come as no surprise that The B-Team -- along with everyone else on the east coast! -- is majorly ready for spring.

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!

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.
