Hello and the happiest of Mondays to you, It’s finally December, the moment many of us have been awaiting all year long, and the perfect excuse to sing aloud and bake non-stop — or maybe that’s just me. (Oh, please tell me that’s not just me!) Here are a few other things I wanted to

Favorite Cocktails and the Holiday Drinks Collection

Our Holiday Drinks Collection inevitably sell out each year – can you possibly imagine why?!

We’re sweet (pardon the pun) on Liddabit Sweets, and for good reason. Founders, Jen King and Liz Gutman, are the brains behind a range of unique candy bars, indulgent caramels, and one-of-a-kind caramel corns that make Liddabit Sweets so very special.

I’m elated and feel a lightness that is incomparable to anything except, perhaps, that end-of-the-semester moment in college when you finish all your exams, only better.

There’s been some buzz about a little Australian cafe in New York City, sandwiched right between Little Italy and Chinatown – talk about international!

Sometimes, you need a cookie asap. If I can’t be bothered to mix up a batch, I break a few Sweet Loren‘s Chocolate Chunk cookies onto a baking sheet and bake. I know that sounds crazy but, oh my goodness, these cookies are perfect for an instant fix. They’re all natural with no refined sugars

Strawberry and rhubarb are the classic combination of sweet and tart. I adore how Gayle used this strawberry rhubarb finishing vinegar to shrub it up.
