Send UrbanStems

We all know I am OBSESSED with fresh flowers and having them in our home is a must! When I stumbled across local, online, boutique florist – UrbanStems, I knew I had to check them out. Timing was perfect because, Mother’s Day is upon us (Sunday, May 14th to be exact) and that means picking out a sweet gift for Mom! *Note: UrbanStems delivers (for free by the way) in DC, New York City, Baltimore, Philadelphia & Austin!

Tomato Crostini with Whipped Feta

  Confession: I’m not a big bread eater… well except that time I stuffed my face with it all through Paris…can you blame me? Despite this, I do appreciate a good bagel, a sandwich (when I’m in the mood) and crostini. The crostini especially because it’s small enough where I don’t get too full and its just a few bites. We were having guests over for Valentines Day this year and I came across this recipe from, who else, Ina. Like Ina, I believe you shouldn’t try out a new recipe…

Spring Night In

Some nights you just don’t feel in the mood to go out, you know? However, you can make at home bites/sips pretty whether its for one, two or more! For us,  a night at home (if I’m not in the mood to cook..and yes, that happens sometimes…) consists of ordering in – one word: Postmates – and then enjoying a glass of wine and maybe a sweet treat. Although food is on its way, my mister inevitably asks, “babe, do we have any appetizers that we can have while we…

Zucchini Goat Cheese Tart

Isn’t it funny how your tastes change as you get older? I used to not care for goat cheese and now it is one of my favorites and I’ve been trying to incorporate it into new dishes! Of course, my favorite, Ina Garten, had a delicious sounding Zucchini Goat Cheese Tart that I just had to try. The best thing about this tart is that it is not only simple to eat but cut it up and it is the perfect appetizer for a get together. What I’ve learned, is…
