Kale Edamame Salad

I’ve never really been a salad girl- until I had kids. Your metabolism doesn’t function the same as it used to pre-baby. I can’t say that I’m still one of those lucky gals who can eat like a beast, doesn’t exercise, and manage to maintain… Read More

Me-Time

Ever since joining the motherhood club, me-time has become a very rare commodity. It has also taken on a whole new meaning. I don’t go to salons or spas to get pampered. In all honesty, I’ve never been that kind of girl. Shopping doesn’t delight… Read More

Bedroom Brunch

When I first saw the cover of Conde Nast Traveler back in December 2013, I was inspired. Very inspired. Immediately, I wanted a ‘Tea for Two’ corner somewhere in my house.  I was obsessively attracted to the French feel of the space.  Did a little… Read More

Zoey has been extremely helpful in the kitchen.  This morning she helped daddy make scrambled eggs and blueberry pancakes.  Later today, she took it upon herself to recreate mommy’s newly invented flavored drink- Elderflower Berry Ginger Sparkling Water. Since the days have been significantly cooler… Read More

Date Night- couples cooking class.

After so many years together, date night options have become very limited. Movies are out b/c I’ll probably fall asleep within thirty minutes (after 8:30pm, I can’t function). Bar hopping? We both don’t drink so that just doesn’t make any sense. Clubbing? NOT. A. CHANCE.… Read More

Prosciutto-Wrapped Melon

Nowadays I’m always in a time crunch. With a 2 month old baby who refuses to lay down and wants to be held 24/7, I really have to operate as efficiently as possible. This means I cannot be a slave in the kitchen. I’ve challenged… Read More

Roast Bone Marrow

My sister has been staying with me for the last couple of weeks. Because she is so awesome (she took care of Axel for the ENTIRE night), I decided to make her favorite dish- EVER. This dish is not for the fainthearted. Roast Bone Marrow… Read More

Friday Musings

Being a mother to a newborn is exhausting to say the least! It’s not that I haven’t been through this before, I guess I just forgot how bad the sleepless nights were… Sometimes I find myself a bit isolated. Yes, I have the company of… Read More

Green Yumminess!

Despite the persistent cold winter weather still hovering over us in the Northeast, I refuse to be a victim of the winter blues. Mentally, I’m prepared for two very exciting upcoming events: the arrival of our baby boy and SPRING! Both symbolize new life and… Read More

My Work Baby Shower!

A Work Lunch Date

Not only do I have the best job ever, I truly have the best work buddies. Our food convos at the office are so out of control, any outsider listening in would think we’re a bunch of bizarre food addicts.  I can always count on… Read More

Pot Stickers In 5 Mins!

I honestly cannot believe it has been an entire week since my last post! This week flew by uber fast. Like most families, our lives are so busy, it’s hard to find time to breathe during the week. Our daily weekday routine consists of waking… Read More

A Kale Salad

I’m not the healthiest person by any stretch of the imagination. In fact, on my last monthly visit to the Dr., my nurse informed me that I was gaining too much weight. Actually, double the weight that I’m supposed to for this stage in my… Read More

Thai Chicken Curry

Lately, I’ve been craving Thai food like a crazy pregnant woman. I’m sure it’s because the weather has been so chilly and the thought of indulging in something hot and spicy brings comfort. Lucky for me, I have a husband who not only cooks but… Read More
