A Paso Robles Quick Step

Despite the pre-departure snafu we were able to maintain our departure time and headed out for a couple of days in Paso Robles wine country. The drive took us through some beautiful countryside and we stopped for lunch at the Los Olivos Wine Merchant Cafe. Lunch was tasty if nothing spectacular and afterwards we stopped in at the … Continue reading

A Perfect Weekend. In Good Company

I’ve never been a fan of the Hamptons, a part of Long Island where every summer a large contingent of seemingly moneyed New Yorkers spend their summer.  To me, it’s like Manhattan-at-the-Beach. The scenery is beautiful, the houses huge (who needs that many rooms!) but the idea of spending my weekend in towns where Main … Continue reading

Fabulously Exhausting.

Part of the beauty of living in NYC is that sometimes life’s adventures snowball and you find yourself caught up in a whirlwind of amazing experiences. My life last week, was quite fabulous but also quite exhausting: Sunday: Brunch with oyster topped Bloody Marys to celebrate the crutches being retired followed by strolling through Cobble Hill window shopping. … Continue reading

Today was one of those days where I just got to go about the day with a smile on my face, it was a treat after last week’s insanity of a shoot review. Today after doing my chores, I spent the afternoon biking from PT to massage appointments for my hip issues and then just … Continue reading

Korean on the brain

Late night at work meant grabbing a bite on the go. Lucky me I live steps away from Kimchi Grill. Kimchi Grill is the bricks & mortar location of the Kimchi Taco Truck and you guessed it: Korean-Mexican fusion . I will admit I stalked them from the first days of it being just the truck’s … Continue reading

Dinner. Salad. Cheap. Satisfying

After a long day at work and short on time but craving something tasty, I decided to forgo takeout and throw together a salad. Inspired by a recipe in the NY Times for asparagus with mustard vinaigrette but wanting a little more color, I tossed in some grape tomatoes. I couldn’t be bothered to peel the … Continue reading
