Brighton Beach Brooklyn Adventures: Akkond Russian Dark Chocolate Marshmallow

During my infrequent visits to Bright Beach Brooklyn I like sampling amazing food from the various Russian, Ukraninian, Georgia and Uzbek food places.

Review: Vegemil Black Bean Milk

I loved that they were slightly frosted and in portable pocket form. Image: http://eatthis.womenshealthmag.com/files/wr-4_6.jpg To my surprise, I discovered that they still […]
