NYC Nom Nom- Poll

My Birthday Dinner- Home Cooked by Mike

29 Oct

I’m still catching up on posts from far too long ago.  I cannot believe that it has already been more than 2 months since this meal.  So today I wanted to show off the incredible dinner that Mike made me for my birthday.

He started with a duo of scallops.  One was wrapped in bacon and the other was with avocado.

And the bacon was CRISPY.  Just the way I like it. 🙂  Both were great.

For the main course, Mike made pork with a mushroom wine sauce and our new classic brussels sprouts with pancetta.

The pork was delicious.

And the brussels sprouts were as delicious as ever.

I thought he had already outdone himself, and then he uncovered this beauty!

Graham cracker crust, whipped cream, strawberries, and graham cracker crumbs.


Thanks again, Mike.  You are a fantastic boyfriend and a fantastic chef!

Ch… ch… ch… changes

28 Oct

You might notice some big changes going on here at NYC Nom Nom.  I am in the process of porting my blog from Tumblr to WordPress, which has proved to be so difficult, that I need the help of some friends who are much smarter than I am about this stuff.

If you see it go down or any funny coding during this process, my apologies!  You can always contact me at

Hopefully this will be resolved soon and will be a much better experience for everyone.
