Best Buys: Green Mountain Coffee

Like Goldilocks I am always on the hunt for a coffee that is just right. Not too weak, but not too bold… This summer I have been totally digging Green Mountain Coffee‘s “breakfast blend”. The company was founded by Robert Stiller, who was vacationing in VT 30 years ago and wandered into a mom and pop… read more

Dog Days of Summer

The only sad thing about summer is when it ends. I must admit I am just not ready for “back to school” or fall. I’m hanging on tight to these last few weeks…      

Summer Inspiration

New Obsession: Açai Bowls

Healthy Breakfast: Egg and Avocado Bowl

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – morning time is pure chaos over at our place. I’m lucky if I grab a protein bar on the way out the door for our 8am school drop off. Recently I’ve been doing the school run on an empty stomach and then coming home to… read more

Healing Foods: Ginger Tea

Last year I fell hard for the Ginger Tea made at both Méli-Mélo and Aux Delices here in Greenwich. The day after New Year’s my baby boy and I got hit with a nasty head cold. Food tasted bland but I found myself craving that tea. I had a sense it would be the magic… read more

Gift Guide: Stocking Stuffers for Her

I’m feeling a little behind over here on the Christmas front. With just 8 days to go until the big day I am busy scouring the internet for something special for each person on my list. We are hug fans of stockings in our home and that’s often where I receive my favorite gifts. The… read more
