THE GULLY | An Urban-Desi Restaurant

LOCATION,
ASTORIA, NY


Back in 2013 my family visited Bangladesh for the very first time. 
A 24+ hour journey to an unknown land where all I had seen prior to my visit were photos and videos online. Fast forwarding to 2020, and we've made two trips back to my husbands motherland.

If you've been following along via my social accounts then you know my family just came back from  Turkey and Bangladesh. While in Bangladesh we couldn't get enough of the delicious food. We tried it all! Everything from Fuchka, Chanachur, Jhalmuri, Singara, Jallaby and so much more.

Valentines Day with The House of Creed

IMG_9321

Today I received the most thoughtful gift from one of my favorite perfume brands, The House of Creed & just in time for Valentines Day. They recently partnered with Compartes Chocolate to create three decadent chocolate bars all inspired by the Aventus Trilogy. The Dark chocolate & vanilla sea salt bar is inspired by Aventus. The White chocolate with peach, roses, & gold flakes bar is inspired by Aventus For Her (my favorite). The Milk chocolate with ginger & orange peel is inspired by Aventus Cologne.

Aventus celebrates strength, power, and success. Notes of bergamot, blackcurrant, pineapple, birch, ambergris and vanilla set this fruity/rich scent from the rest. 

Aventus for Her is the irresistible feminine counterpart to the legend Aventus, inspired by strong women. A floral/fresh scent, Aventus For Her features notes of green apple, patchouli, rose, sandalwood and peach. 

Aventus Cologne is the newest universal fragrance that perfectly compliments it's counterparts while providing an expressive and unconventional fresh olfactive experience. This woody/fresh scent includes notes such as ginger, mandarin, patchouli, sandalwood, birch and tonka bean.

This Valentines Day you'll receive a special box with all three chocolate bars with the purchase of any Creed perfume for a limited time.

Daily Provisions Now Serving Sunday Supper

IMG_7856

If you’ve ever visited Daily Provisions then you know about their delicious breakfast options such as their Maple Cruller or hefty BEC. Now the neighborhood favorite is making a mean dinner too! My family visited their Upper West Side location to try the new menu out and believe me when I say we weren’t disappointed.

Both Daily Provisions locations will be serving family-style dinners every Sunday from 5pm-9pm. They have delicious rotisserie chickens, plus a plethora of sides to keep the whole group satisfied, including their Kale Salad, Crispy Brussels Sprouts (you must try!!), Mashed Potatoes, and Stuffed Artichoke. There's also some whites and reds for the parents and hot chocolate to keep the kids warm on a winter evening. & did I mention they also have epic desserts the entire family will be fighting over!

Good Morning.
Happy Monday and Happy New Year!

This past weekend was so wonderful for my family.
Aside from missing an event Saturday morning because Moe and I overslept which never happens (we blame James for keeping us up the night before). We enjoyed oversleeping that morning! As a result, we were able to eat breakfast at home and take our time getting dressed. We had so much free time that after breakfast we visited Topps Bakery. I will admit we only come here for one thing and that's their Boston cream donuts.. their amazing and very addictive!!

We normally visit Chantilly Patisserie and Bakehouse but they're currently closed as they're on vacation (returning tomorrow 1/7).

Quick Roasted Cornish Hen Recipe


Ingredients

1 lemon (zested and juiced)
3 cloves of garlic (finely chopped or made into paste)
1 teaspoon oregano
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1 1/2 teaspoon salt + pepper
1/8 teaspoon of cayenne pepper or chili powder (optional)
2 tablespoon of butter
Two Cornish hens  (1.6 pounds each)


1. Turn oven to 375 degrees (convectional bake).
2. Mix all ingredients in a bowl except the hens.
3. Pat hens dry with paper towels.
4. Add half of the mixed seasoning under the skin and the rest all over the hen.
5. Add a drizzle of olive oil on both hens.

Bake for 1 hour. Basting every 20 minutes with it's own juices. 

I used two small hens but this recipe works with chicken as well. The chicken is ready when it hits 165 degrees fahrenheit (75 celsius) or when you poke the breast with a knife and the juices run clear.

Serves 4 people.

Bring Back Memories With JOHNSON’S

“I partnered with JOHNSON’S ® to produce this post. As always all opinions are my own. Thanks for supporting the brands and collaborations that make NY Trendy Moms possible”



Going on vacation for me while growing up wasn’t traveling the world, meeting different people and eating different foods. My vacation as a child was staying with my abuela all Summer long in the Dominican Republic while my mother worked two jobs back in New York. Back then I didn’t realize how great these moments were until I no longer had them.
