Cookbook Twins

In Uncategorized on April 23, 2014 at 3:40 pm


Our friend Sara cleverly dubbed us the “cookbook twins” and that’s a nickname we think we can get behind. While it seems like our blogging days here on The Skinny Beet are few and far between, it doesn’t mean we’ve slowed down at all. By some total freak chance, we each both received separate cookbook deals recently. Richard is writing a burger cookbook with their friend Sam (formerly of JM Curley) and Katie is writing a book on SuperFood Sandwiches. Katie is also doing the photography for both books so we are busy folks these days. Happy and thrilled for these wonderful opportunities, but crazy involved with them too. Our podcast continues to roll out, Richard just started his first in a series of burger pop-ups all over Boston, and Katie is all over Eater Boston, crushing it with interviews, articles and pictures. We’ll be updating with news on our books along the way, so please check back in soon. Cheers!

We had a blast recording our new podcast, with our friend Maggi from Kinnealey last night. We talked beef, burgers and the aquarium. Plus Dylan gets squeamish, give it a listen 🙂

Man, where does the time go? I’m sure a lot of it has to do with the wedding and the honeymoon (Italy, sigh) but this year has flown by. We are still doing our thing, taking on more and more personal chef clients, talking to other lovely couples about catering their weddings next year, and booking private holiday parties for the next couple of months. Phew. In addition to all of that, Katie has started writing for Eater Boston (!!!) and Richard is still going strong contributing to Boston Magazine with two columns now. And then there’s the podcast, which we are so excited for, we’ve had a wonderful lineup of chefs, photographers, bloggers, bartenders and restauranteurs, and some incredible people lined up for future episodes. Richard also just launched the Boston Burger Blog App (free for iTunes) and somewhere in all of that we’ve found the time to cook lots of fun projects at home, including homemade cheese and our own bitters. So keep checking back as we can’t wait share more news, recipes and all of our latest cooking adventures in the weeks to come. Cheers!!

The Skinny Beet Podcast

In At Home on August 6, 2013 at 12:39 pm


We’ve been having a blast recording our Podcast, The Skinny Beet Dinner Partyover the last few months. We started this Podcast in conjunction with the folks at Tell Me Something and while we’re still learning as we go, we’re really having a great time. So far we’ve had some sensational guests on, with folks coming from the restaurant world, music scene and more. We’re pretty much talking all food all the time, (sometimes it’s overkill talking about our own wedding, but can you blame us?) but it’s been fun mixing it up with different people along the way.

While we chat, we always have a few snacks on hand, recently we snacked on some Sweet and Salty Watermelon Skewers as well as Muhammara with Sesame Rounds. What’s really fun about having new guests is that we get to talk about different subjects that we probably wouldn’t touch on otherwise. We never really know what’s going to come up in conversation. Did you know you can subscribe to our show on iTunes? Well you can, so get on it 🙂 Recently we found out our numbers have been growing quickly, we are so humbled and flattered that people are listening and love all the support we can get.

If you are someone in the Restaurant industry, a Blogger or just someone interested in food and you want to be a guest on our show, please drop us a line at Additionally, if you are interested in sponsoring a podcast, either by way of money or samples of your product, please send us a note. We’ve been delighted (and happily full) enjoying delicious treats from our fist sponsor, Becca Bakes as well as our friends over at Pretzel Crisps! As always, thanks for staying in touch and for your ongoing support of The Skinny Beet!

Walking With Our Mouths Full

Short Rib Taco at La Verdad

I blame all this lovely spring weather that we’ve been having, it seems we can’t get enough of walking around our fair city and stopping to try out some local spots as we go. Last week we took a 10 mile walk and this week two 5 mile walks – we’ve gotta find some way to stay in shape, after all! There’s just been so many places that we want to try and we’ve found that it’s the best and most enjoyable way to both get some fresh air and exercise, while having fun and sampling some local eats. Armed with my iPhone and trusty Instagram, here’s some pictures from the past two weeks’ walks…

Pig Intestines at China King

What we sampled were all over the map with cuisines; Asian, Mexican and American predominately, and had food ranging from standard (a Burger) to a little unusual (Pig Intestines). We had some good food (China King), some that wasn’t our favorite (Villa Mexico, Griddlers) and then some exceptionally good food from La VerdadRead the rest of this entry »
