Recipe: PB&J Smoothies

  The ultimate comfort food—Peanut Butter & Jelly!  What is it about this classic combination that feeds the body and soul? This nostalgic slice of Americana just never goes out of style. The average child will eat 1,500 peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches before he or she graduates high school. What?!?  That’s a lot of peanut butter! Feel good about the… Continue Reading

Our Etsy Shop

Your business isn’t complete until you have a website;  And Facebook page, a Twitter Account and an Instagram.  A pinboard on Pinterest is on the back burner right now….a YouTube Channel is likely NEVER going to happen, a podcast is in our near future (yes, we have this in the works) and we’ve just opened… Continue Reading

Westchester Woman Wednesday:  Meet Kimberly Giannelli

Westchester Woman Wednesday: Meet Kimberly Giannelli

Earlier this week, I had my monthly in-person meeting/interview with this month’s Westchester Woman Wednesday choice, Kim Giannelli. I usually do my best to fit the person’s schedule and honor their restaurant (and meal) of choice. For some women, lunch is easier; for others, getting away mid-day is hard and they prefer dinner. Kim chose… Continue Reading

Bunk 9’s Guide to Growing Up- Book Review

Bunk 9’s Guide to Growing Up- Book Review

This is a book I wish my mom had given me at about 12 years old.   Having my own 12-year-old daughter, I am happy to have it so I can educate her in a way she can understand, by reading a book that appears like another girl’s journal.   Over the years, I have bought the… Continue Reading

The Truth About Hosting an Au Pair

The Truth About Hosting an Au Pair

I’m a SAHM and I have an au pair.  People ask me, “Why?”   My reply, “Why not?”  When I resigned from teaching full time, I never expected that I would be in the house with my kids 24/7/365, waiting for my husband to get home so I could throw the household responsibilities on him as… Continue Reading

Southern Table Kitchen & Bar

Southern Table Kitchen & Bar

“The owners of Southern Table wanted to create a new dining experience in Westchester, New York” and they sure did.  This Pleasantville restaurant opened by the owners of Wood & Fire and Stone Fire New York a few months ago and I couldn’t be happier. There was a comfort food restaurant missing in my rotation of… Continue Reading
