Out of Office

Sorry for the sudden disappearance all.  I have run into some major issues affecting my daily life and as a result my blogging, so until these issues are resolved, I’m going to be taking a short break.  Hope to be back on here soon!  

You lush

When I go shopping, I really don’t like to be bothered.  Annoying store clerks who follow you around and force random products on you are the worst and have often driven me out of the store.  There are times though, when I’m bored or curious and don’t mind a little extra help.  The other day, … Continue reading

Lobster Display by Pestle & Mortar It was another glorious day on Governor’s Island.  The weather was perfect.  I made it just in time for the 11am ferry and I was headed to one of my favorite events in New York City, the Street Vendor Project’s Vendy Awards.  It’s hard not to get excited about … Continue reading

I finally got a chance to try out Georgetown Cupcakes this past week (thankfully before the chaos of Fashion’s Night Out) and was pleasantly surprised.  They have many flavors and I’m not sure if this is due to the timing of my visit, but they also seemed to have a couple of charity and themed … Continue reading

Pigging out at Pig Island

Pigging out at Pig Island

I hope everyone had a great Labor Day Weekend.  Mine started out with some great eating, thanks to fellow blogger Sweets by Sillianah.  She invited me to join her at Pig Island taking place on Governors Island.  25 local chefs took 80 locally sourced hogs and made some delicious dishes. Although the unexpectedly hot weather did … Continue reading

Corton in your kitchen

Corton in your kitchen

Last week was crazy and it seems like this week is no different.  I did have a great experience though, that I can’t wait to share.  Last Monday, I was at the Institute of Culinary Education (ICE) taking the “Signature Dishes from Corton” with Corton’s former pastry chef Shawn Gawle.  That right, former.  The class started off … Continue reading

Keep an eye out for a new post later this week!

Bread and Butter

Several years ago, I budgeted and saved money and took a whopping two-week vacation in Paris, France.  I rented a small studio apartment in Montmartre (with a view of Sacré Coeur!) and lived my dream of living in Paris, even for a short while.  It was glorious.  I can’t wait to do it again. For those … Continue reading

Enchanté

At work, I’m in a shared area, so having a long list of podcasts to listen to throughout the week are a must.  My week is not complete without Wait, Wait Don’t Tell Me, a funny, but very informative news show.  There hasn’t been one episode where I start laughing out loud and all my … Continue reading

Not afraid of a little rain

Not afraid of a little rain

It’s funny.  When it starts raining, really raining, people’s natural reaction is to run for cover.  A few months ago, I was at the New York Botanical Garden roaming the Rose Garden, taking in the beautiful blooms and fragrances.  Suddenly, it started to rain…really rain.  I rushed to get my umbrella out.  By the time I got … Continue reading
