Hi, I'm Rachel.

A few years ago I could barely boil water.

True story.

Determined to be a kick ass wife, I developed a love for football and learned to cook in my tiny Jersey City kitchen. I spend my days working in Manhattan, my nights and weekends chasing after a rambunctious toddler, and the hours in between cooking with my husband and feeding my TV habit...oh, and I blog about it all!

Spring Date Series

We have your guide to fun, informal, and best of all inexpensive dates around the city! Our Date of the Week (DOW) is the hippest, most high class fast food joint in town: Shake Shack.

Yes, it IS worth the hype. Perhaps not the most glamorous date, what says 'I'm silly and fun' like old-fashioned burgers and fries. Go all out with the famous, made-to-order Shack Burger ($4.75) and the most delicious cheesy fries ($3.75) to share. Note to all: I skipped the shake on my first go-round...do not make this mistake! The to-die-for custardy shakes, while a bit pricey at $5.25, are worth every penny and every sip. Lines can be long, so we recommend off-peak hours. Go original at Madison Square Park or skip for the newer, table-inclusive UWS locale. Before you go, check the monthly Custard Calendar, where each day of the week features a specialty flavor...my April pick is Pineapple Upside Down Custard, yum!
Bonus: Serves beer and wine.
Estimated Date Cost: Under $30
