Lemons Hot water

One of my new year’s resolutions was to do things for myself each day that make me feel good mentally and physically. This year I decided I was going to create very specific outlines of what those “things” would be in hopes that I would actually stick to them throughout the year. For example, read […]

At Home…


I am a sucker for dumplings.  Any kind of dumpling really, from perogies to shumai, I’m into it.  Recently, I decided it was time to try my hand at making some myself ,and boy, am I glad I did.  Not only were they relatively easy to make- there’s nothing like a freshly made dumpling to […]

If you’re in NYC right now you know that the weather is less than sunny (ie. torrential downpour). I personally like rainy days.  They give me an excuse to stay in and catch up on all of the projects I’ve been putting off;  laundry gets done, mail sorted, letters answered.  As the fall is really […]
