nyc-etc: my favorite "nyc" tips!

Warning: yogurt ahead. I say this because, well, yogurt? It’s my food kryptonite. Yes, I’ve used it in cakes, salad dressings, cookies and even pizza dough. But just straight up eating it? Like, with a spoon? Step back. Waaaay back (anyone here feel the same? Please tell me I’m not the only one). But as […]

pop! goes my summer: buttered popcorn popsicles

July 22nd, 2015

And they’re just as good as they sound. I was both inspired by, and skeptical of the concept of a salted, buttered popcorn popsicle. But Erica Rax’s photos – and even just the prospect of these being a success – were enough to make me succumb. And I’m so, so glad I did. The base for these pops […]

i can't/she can: "natural" skin care

July 21st, 2015

On a dreary mid-winter day a few months ago, my good friend Deirdre came to the house and gave a presentation on a company called Beautycounter. Deirdre’s passion about the company – and its mission – really made me want to learn more, particularly in light of the fact of how apparently ZILCH I knew […]

Been awhile, “c/c” – but I’ve got some good stuff to share with you all. No theme per se, rather a bit of this and that that I think you’ll love…….. Crushed: I am quite smitten with Dreamfarm. It’s an Australian company that produces a line of innovative, well-designed kitchen and housewares. My first purchase was […]

j/j/a15 capsule wardrobe - checking in

July 9th, 2015

So – I’m about halfway through this capsule period and what can I say? I love it! This approach continues to make life (a.k.a., mornings) much easier, and – as with the last capsule – I may even have TOO many choices. I did swap out one pair of pants for a more comfortable pair, and […]

pop! goes my summer: s'mores popsicles

July 8th, 2015

Yes, you read correctly: S’MORES POPSICLES. If you were with me last summer, you may recall the “Great S’mores Popsicle Fail” of 2014. But I was determined to get it right. And oh, I got it right.

d.i.y.: homemade magic shell

July 7th, 2015

If I had known how easy it is to make your own magic shell – well, I would have done it a loooong time ago. While not a huge fan of chocolate, I love it frozen – and I especially love it frozen over ice cream, a la the shell. Many (many!) recipes abound for […]
