Beachside Food

Happy Monday! Yesterday, we had Zoey spent the night at her aunt’s house. Finally, there was a great opportunity for the hubs and I to watch a movie together or do something fun for date-night. Needless to say, none of that happened b/c as soon… Read More

Friday Tidbits

I can’t believe it’s already Friday and we are heading back home tomorrow! I can’t wait to go back to normal life and live my usual routine. It’s been too long. I’m certainly not the type of person who likes to live adventurously and out… Read More

Thai Iced Tea

Are you a fan of Thai Iced Tea? You know that pretty orange tea often served at Thai restaurants? Well, I certainly am but tend to cringe at the price tag that comes w/ them. This is b/c I know how EASY and inexpensive it… Read More

Muffin + Mauve

Hello! I’m thankful it’s already Thursday. There’s so much going on right now in our lives (all new and very exciting) but it can either all fall apart or come together. In one month, we will know where we stand in many departments (professionally &… Read More

A Complete Smoothie

Hello! Hope everyone’s doing well. Today, I saw the house of MY DREAMS. It’s everything that I’ve ever wanted and immediately felt a connection and a huge desire to call it “our home.” Both the hubs and I agreed that this is IT.  And honestly,… Read More

Blueberry Yogurt Popsicles

I’m not a popsicle queen. However, it may appear so based on my recent popsicle-making obsession. And why not? They are so simple, healthy, and delish. Perfect for warm glorious days like today.  Yesterday, I made some blueberry yogurt popiscles in literally less than 5… Read More

Tuesday Tidbits

Today started off well. Before heading off to the market to pick up much needed necessities, I made a healthy smoothie consisting of nonfat greek yogurt, almonds, soymilk, and nectarine. It lasted me for a good couple of hours.  When I left the store, the… Read More

Mango Frozen Yogurt

Hello! Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Another summer day, another frozen dessert recipe. This one is extremely simple and probably one of the healthiest desserts ever. My Z loves ice cream. Actually, she loves just gnawing on ice. To kick her ice-biting habit, I… Read More

Friday Chit-Chat

Just some random chit-chat worthy things to mention…. Earlier this week, I bought these cool concrete initials for Zoey’s future bedroom (for when we move to our new place…whenever that is!) from Restoration Hardware. This is the type of random not-thought-out purchase that my husband… Read More

A while back, I did a little mention about these Fabulous macarons from Paris that my sister had sent to me.  Here are the yummy Paul macarons that I’ve shot (a while back, too). Feast with your eyes! Making macarons has been on my ‘to… Read More

A Dinner Affair

Hello! How is everyone enjoying your Memorial Holiday? The weather has been horrible here in Boston…wet, gloomy, windy, and cold. So unlikely for this time of the year. We didn’t spend the weekend as planned but I did end up hosting a little dinner for… Read More

Blueberry Almond Bagel

Sometimes the weather can be very insensitive and unkind. It doesn’t care that we already made plans. What was supposed to be a fun filled day at Martha’s Vineyard (biking around the island) this coming Memorial weekend might not happen. The almost perfect weather forecast… Read More

Blueberry Limeade

Here’s a thirst quencher that looks and tastes AH-MAZING! I was totally inspired by the lemon balm from our garden. Their scent is very similar to lemongrass. Very refreshing and lemony.  I had blueberries and lime in the fridge- ta da! An idea was born.… Read More

Mother’s Day 2013

Hello! Hope everyone had a GREAT Mother’s Day yesterday! I couldn’t ask for a more perfect day. My request was to take a one day family trip to a nearby town- just the three of us. Daddy made it happen and it was very special.… Read More

Berries And Peach Popsicles

I’m not much of an ice cream maker. I leave that role to my husband who would often make homemade ice cream in flavors such as raspberry and green tea during the summertime. But now that Zoey’s in the picture, I thought about making something… Read More

Strawberry Coconut Smoothie

I’ve been a smoothie Queen ever since my sister got me a Vitamix. I use it everyday primarily to whip up super healthy drinks for my Z. Since the weather has been getting warmer (although not warm enough!), I’ve made some yummy and refreshing combinations… Read More

Truffle Foie Gras Sandwich

I HEART Foie Gras. I HEART Truffles. Put them together? Just pure heaven! Yesterday, as a snack, I made two little seared Truffle Duck Foie Gras sandwiches. It was just the perfect midday filler. Seared Foie Gras in a way reminds me of Roasted Bone… Read More

Gifts From PARIS!

I have to say, my family is AH-MAZING! Two of my sisters just came back from a trip to PARIS and they sent me gifts from my most FAV city, EVER. Among the fabulous goodies are macarons (seriously!), three types of foie gras (not for… Read More

Summer Rolls

I’m not quite sure what the difference between Summer Rolls and Spring Rolls are but I think that they are synonymous (at least in the Vietnamese cuisine). Today, I’m going to call mine Summer rolls because they’re vegetarian and so colorful just like summer! Ingredients… Read More
