Got it!
Got it!
Matzoh victory! Note: Hambone has to be the least Jewish name for a dog.

Leandra and Erin vs. Coffee Mate, Round 2
After tasting seven "mates" in a row, Cereal Eats columnist Leandra took a break before tackling some more, with Erin's moral support.
Chinatown Sweets(?)
Chinatown Sweets(?)
Scooped columnist Ethan Frisch came by to join SENY editor Max on a hunt for rice rolls in Chinatown. Along the way they found these lollipop-like snacks. The one on the right is a candied sour olive; the one on the left...well, we're not sure, but it tasted like a cross between a plum and a fish.

Taste of Italian Easter

Carey and Erin sample Nudo Colomba cake—sort of the Easter equivalent of panettone. It was very fluffy, with big chunks of candied orange peel scattered throughout.

Trufflin'

Carey traveled to Italy on a press trip, where she went truffle hunting with Faina (dog's name) in the hills outside San Pietro Avellana.

Truffles and cheese with every meal? Not a bad diet to have in Italy. Carey suited up to visit the cheese-makin' at Caseficio di Nucci in Agnone, Italy.
Meet Yuba!
Meet Yuba!
Yuba is Chief Creative Officer J. Kenji Lop├ęz-Alt's newest family member. A five-year-old Boston Terrier rescue, she's as sweet a little girl as you could hope for. A little timid and a little shy, but once she warms up to you, she's all joy. Welcome to the team, Yuba!
Yuba Meets Hambone
Yuba Meets Hambone
Do Yuba and Hambone get along? Yes, yes they do. Here they are engaging in a bit of tug-o-war (Hambone has the advantage at three times her weight).
All tuckered out...

After a romp, Hambone and Yuba take a snooze by Hambone's giant doggy bed.
