Fabulous Food: Fjord Fish Market

Since moving back to Greenwich, Fjord Fish Market has become my go-to spot for buying seafood. And when I am at their Greenwich location I regularly pick up fresh produce, bread, and sauces too. Fjord is located in a shopping area that is now known as “The Hub” in Cos Cob on East Putnam Avenue. With Greenwich… read more

Designer to Watch: Carmiña Roth

With so many illnesses and disasters happening in our world, it is all too easy for us to turn a blind eye to one epidemic while focusing on another. When I was in my teens and twenties the HIV/AIDS epidemic was regularly in the news. While the disease remains a very real issue in our… read more

Would you bring a coyote into your home?

I had no intention of blogging tonight but I stumbled upon this unbelievable text prank on Facebook. As I read it I literally was laughing out loud with tears rolling down my cheeks. Maybe it’s because I have done some slightly crazy animal stuff in my day, or that I just LOVE pranks, but this… read more

Great Business: Moda Operandi

I met Lauren Santo Domingo in my early twenties through mutual friends. From the start I always found Lauren to be thoughtful and friendly – someone who said hello to you at a party after meeting you just once. Even back then I could tell she was someone with a clear sense of purpose and… read more

Introducing Milly!

I’m pretty sure we were at capacity over here in these parts. 3 kids, new house (that needs a lot of work!), part-time job for me, full time job for hubby, etc. BUT we all had this nagging little voice inside our heads saying, “It’s time for a puppy.” In fact two members of our… read more

Great Business: Saltwater Brewery

  Over at our house we have big hearts for the creatures of the sea. I was blown away by this idea of edible packaging materials for six packs of beer. As far as I am concerned SaltWater Brewery has my business. Can you imagine how great it would be if big business beer companies got on… read more

Great Business: Mike’s Organic Delivery

One of the first local businesses I featured on the blog here was Mike’s Organic Delivery. It remains one of my favorite here in our area. As a mother of three, I love anyone who is trying to make my food-buying life easier, and my children’s food more healthy. Mike has recently added a whole… read more
