I can’t live without (_______)

  This boozy syrup form Runamok!  My parents gave me this trio of syrup for Christmas and I finally tried it last week. I actually tried a tiny spoonful first and they were great!  I received rum, rye and bourbon.  The syrup is stored in aged rum, rye and bourbon barrels, so you get the…

I can’t live without (_______)

These hazelnut chocolate cookies from Trader Joe’s! This was truly a last minute impulse buy while looking for Pepper Joe Joe’s.  I had to stop myself from eating the entire box in one sitting.  The cookies are light and crispy without being hard and crunchy and the filling was nice a creamy.  I felt so…

Friday Things

Ok, so I’m starting something new for Friday.  I’ve discovered so many fun foods and gadgets lately that I didn’t know where else to share them, so here we go! I will fully admit to making a purchase based on packaging first.  This was definitely the case with Tony’s Chocolonely.  The bonus is when the product…

Today’s pic was taken at Rehoboth Beach, MD just a couple of weeks ago.  It was my first and only chance to get to the beach this year.  There was a major storm the weekend the bf and I went, so we left a day early to make sure we’d get a little sun.  We…

Today’s pic is of Cedar Grove, a historic home in Fairmount Park Philadelphia, PA.  This was the last kid free weekend for the bf and I, so we went to Philly for a quick overnight trip.  Mostly to eat.  And we did take time to visit the Philadelphia Museum of Art.  If you haven’t been,…

Today’s pic was taken during my trip to Detroit. The bf and I stayed at the Inn on Ferry Street and I can’t say enough good things about this place.  The inn occupies fours historic homes on this block each with a different theme.  We stayed in the Victorian room.  It’s been another whirlwind week!…

Today’s pic is almost ten years old.  I was living in Chicago and we were having a “family” bbq with my downstairs neighbors and a few friends.  It also makes me think of the friends I have here in DC and the fun BBQs. Like the one that’s coming up on the 4th.  I can’t…

This picture sums up my week. My son turned our modest living room into a gaming room for his birthday party. I had eight boys playing in three areas for about eight hours.I mean, they weren’t playing video games eight hours straight, but they were over for about eight hours.They had a great time, and…

Busy, Busy, Busy!

It feels like forever since I’ve posted something.  Maybe it’s because it’s been almost two weeks!  I certainly didn’t expect my hiatus to be this long.  I typically go into hiding for a couple of weeks around Thanksgiving to begin my holiday baking for edith+ethel, my little cookie company, but I suffered another setback by…

Angry Orchard

My friends know me as someone who enjoys a good cocktail or beer. I love going to craft cocktail bars, dive bars, and beer gardens. I never thought of reviewing an adult beverage, but when Angry Orchard asked me what I thought of their hard ciders, I couldn’t say no! Just look at this bounty!…
