Fall Flavors from Whisk

1 November 2021

The team at Whisk is prepped and ready to help you whip up delicious fall dishes this season! From salads and sweets to veggies and entrees, this season’s recipes are sure to please your dinner guests.

Check out the full recipes below and visit the shop for more recommendations and all your kitchen needs!

Apple and Coconut Bundt Cake with Buttermilk Icing and Sugar Coated Pecans

Kick off the fall season with a delicious apple cake! Warm, spiced apples are celebrated in this unassuming cake that is packed with flavor. Beautiful, sugar coated pecans add a delightful crunch while the hot buttermilk icing soaks into every last crack and crevice. We think this will become your new favorite cake and the best way to welcome autumn!

Caramelized Sweet Potato & Kale Salad with Tahini Dressing

Highlight the harvest season with this hearty fall salad. Earthy, caramelized sweet potatoes delicately balance out the mildly bitter kale in a colorful medley that is truly a meal in itself. Sweeten the deal with golden raisins, fresh plums, tangy feta, and crispy fried chickpeas. Then give it all a final toss with our lemony, homemade, tahini dressing. Autumn perfection!

Roasted Sausage & Veggies with Creamy Polenta

This easy dinner comes together quickly with the help of a simple sheet pan — perfect for a busy weeknight! Use this basic recipe as a starting point for becoming a pro at “sheet pan cooking,” then get creative. A sausage and veggie sheet pan combo is easily adaptable to whatever ingredients you have on hand. We used sweet Italian sausage, but this would work with nearly any kind of sausage and veggie combo. Once the sheet pan is in the oven, cook the creamy polenta, and voila! dinner is served!

Pups & Pints in the Park

13 October 2021

Waverly Place is excited to partner with Johnson Subaru for a new event headed to Waverly Place! Join us in The Park on Saturday, October 23 from 1:00 to 4:00 pm for Pups & Pints. Meet and greet adoptable pets from Second Chance Pet Adoptions while enjoying a variety of beers from Bombshell Beer Company. Guests can also enjoy live music, lawn games, pet costume contest, treats and more!

All proceeds from the event will benefit Second Chance Pet Adoptions. In addition to monetary donations through beer sales and games, Second Chance Pet Adoptions will be accepting supplies for the center. Bring donated items to the event to help us Stuff the Subaru!

Additional details will be available on the event page here.

Second Chance Pet Adoptions is Raleigh’s oldest no-kill animal rescue organization. As a nonprofit organization, donors enable us to carry out our mission: to champion homeless cats and dogs who are healthy or treatable in the quest to find their forever homes and engage with our community to promote responsible pet ownership, ultimately reducing future generations of homeless animals. Since our inception in 1987, we have given second chances to over 16,000 animals, all of whom have been spayed/neutered, microchipped (once available), and vaccinated before adoption. In addition to our rescue and adoption efforts, our work includes spaying and neutering hundreds of additional animals in the community each year to proactively prevent more puppies and kittens from being born into homelessness.

Johnson Subaru of Cary is proud to partner with Second Chance for this year’s Subaru Loves Pets initiative. Second Chance works tirelessly to provide loving homes for dogs and cats in our community who truly deserve a second (or third or fourth) chance and we are excited to promote their wonderful work. We also want to thank our longtime friends at Waverly Place for hosting Pups and Pints!

The Sweetest Valentine’s Day

9 February 2021

Lucky for us, the most romantic holiday of the year falls on a Sunday this year — all the more reason to do up the celebration. Waverly Place in Cary boasts options for Valentine’s Day cuisine, gifts, activities, and more. Spread out on an acre of land with gracious landscaping, it’s just the place to celebrate with options for getting out of the house or staying in. Here Walter Magazine’s four ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day at Waverly Place.

For an Evening Out for Two: Dinner and a Film

What feels more romantically old fashioned than seeing a movie on the big screen? Start your evening at Cinebistro choosing from more than ten films from thriller to comedy. While watching, share a plate of sweet and herbaceous Baked Goat Cheese with a crispy baguette, Truffle Fries, Pan-seared Salmon, or other menu items from the cinema’s gourmet kitchen. For beverages, their Love Bug with Midori and banana liquor seems fitting. Or you can’t go wrong with a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon. With COVID precautions in place, know you’ll enjoy a film safely while cozied up in the theatre’s spacious leather seats. Afterward, head to Shake Shack for their current special, A Brown Batter Hot Cocoa Shake made with brownie batter, hot cocoa-frozen custard, whipped cream, brownie brittle, and mini-marshmallows. Ooh, la la!

For a Night with your Galentines: A Pottery Class then a Worldly Dinner 

Round up your pod for a pottery class at Color Me Mine. The walk-in, do-it-yourself ceramic studio is hosting a Galentine’s Night on Saturday, February from 5 p.m- 10 p.m. Afterwards, feast on Tagliatelle Bolognese, Calamari, and other Italian hearty classics at Enrigo Italian Bistro (reservations encouraged) or enjoy Asian-fusion at Tasu Asian Bistro like Crab Rangoon, Tai Coconut Soup or a myriad of authentic sushi rolls.

For a Low-Key Celebration at Home: Take and Bake

While it’s fun to get out, staying in is nice too — especially if some of your Valentines are little ones. Use the special occasion to bake something different with your loved ones, like churros dipped in chocolate with this recipe from Whisk, a locally-owned culinary specialty shop. Mention this ad to receive their February Special in-store and treat yourself to some new kitchen tools!

You’ll need some good food too — and there are plenty of take-out options like Taziki’s Mediterranean Cafe, MOD Pizza, and Triangle Wine Company for drinks.

For a Day of Self-Care: A Spa Treatment, Yoga, or Tacos

There is no shortage of options at Waverly Place for self-love in its many forms, from a spa treatment from Hand & Stone, to yoga classes at CorePower Yoga (this month, check their site for February specials like discounted classes and a Lunch and Yoga event). For some, self-care might look like tacos from Gonza Tacos Y Tequila and a few Chocolate Covered Strawberries from Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory for dessert. Treat yourself!

Regardless of how you choose to celebrate this years Valentine’s Day we hope it’s just enough sweet and satisfying.
