Pumpkin spice latte {I love autumn}

Oh, autumn, how I love thee. The crisp weather, the beauty of the trees, the pumpkin cupcakes, pumpkin risotto (with Chinese 5-Spice), the magic in the air in NYC…and pumpkin spice lattes.

Couscous from Looly’s {Super Easy Ideas for Lunch}

What’s your go-to meal for lunch? Sometimes lunch creeps up on me. That’s because I become so engrossed in what I’m doing (a sure sign that I love what I do). For this reason, the day goes by so quickly and sometimes it’s almost time to pick up my darling daughter at school. During the

A visit to Titan Foods {Baked shrimp salad with orzo + ouzo}

The wonders of Titan Foods, a Greek Supermarket in Astoria, are many. Walk in and you might feel you’ve ended up in Greece, not Queens, thanks to the Greek music playing overhead, the blue and white flags, and of course the food, most of which is imported straight from Greece. What you’ll love about Titan

Three must-go-to cafés in NYC {Embracing the art of routine}

My mother, the queen of routine, would be shocked at this news: For the free spirit that I’ve always been, I recently began embracing routine and have been enjoying my new-found love of structure (well, within reason). Why the change? Well, I am a mom of a darling daughter who just started Kindergarten. For my

A perfect cup of coffee {Insider tips from a coffee guru}
