Tea and Sympathy

So, its what I collect, some people collect single malt, cigars, wine?I collect tea! I have some loose leaf and tea bags. So you can imagine what a treat Sri Lanka was for me. I bought this divine Lavender infusion from Barefoot. Here’s why its good for you – drinking hot water all day is great for your body. And all the antioxidants i ...

I love Salads

I love salads. There’s no 2 ways about it. I just love them. Beautiful green leaves, raw veggies, parsley, tangy dressings, fruit surprises. It can be either a meal or an appetizer. But either way…its a TREAT! I was in Fava the other day with my sister and cousin. And my sister and I shared a Micro greens salad, carrot and orange soup a ...

You won’t believe what I did this weekend.

You will not believe what I did this weekend!! I actually walked out of the house with extra virgin coconut oil on my hair AND face!!! Something I totally preach against! My Mom’s been raving about this miracle oil and how it works wonders on your skin, hair, you can eat it, drink it, etc etc. So I thought what the heck, and marched out the ...

Trick or Treat?

Trick or Treat?? Yes, that was a trick question. Go ahead ask yourself ….what is a treat? For me – in school – Hot Chocolate Fudge from Corner House, in College – midnight pizza, in my 20s – Sunday brunch at Olive, in my 30s…mmm…..any evening out (where I’m in anything other than my sweatpants) is a ...

“Is this homemade??”

“Is this homemade?” were probably my first words. Seriously! Growing up, I was a very picky eater….sorry Mom. I was suspicious of anything that claimed to be food if it didn’t look anything like its natural source….like “BAKE” (pronounced BACK!). In the 80s it was very trendy to serve a full Indian meal wit ...
