So it’s pretty clear by now that I’ve made more than enough attempts at difficult recipes, things that aren’t exactly realistic for a person who has a serious job, or someone who has a family, kids to pick up from soccer practice, or for a typical twenty-thirty something that works 9-7 and then goes out […]
This post is for all my readers who are either getting over a painful breakup, recently divorced, or single. But you know Valentine’s day is just another excuse for couples to go out to dinner or drink (or both)… and why shouldn’t this apply to people who aren’t coupled up?? Valentine’s day is pretty open […]
There’s a block on Madison that makes every other block on this avenue kind of irrelevant, and that’s the block between 70th and 71st. Two remarkable brands set up shop here, Celine and Laduree.

While walking around in Galeria Umberto, I found this little pastry shop…Sfogliatella is a pastry that originated from Naples….I’ve had Sfogliatella before but I really wanted to try it here where it was created- Another common pastry I loved called “BABA” was also delicious…They served both pastries on two pieces of white paper, no plates. […]
I haven’t been here since college but I made a visit recently and it was packed. The same guy was working there too. Best place to get yeasty doughnuts. Lavender doughnuts caught my eye. Blueberry doughnuts. The flavor is only injected into the frosting, not the actual doughnut. The only thing I wish this place […]
