Nothing Says Holiday Like The Smell of Homemade Apple Cider
Making homemade apple cider is absolutely the best for the holiday season. It's so easy to make and it makes your home smell AH-Mazing! Plus, how beautiful does it look while simmering on your stove? Great for a party or just for yourself! Ingredients * 8-10 apples (I used gala for a less tart or intense taste) * 1/2-1 cup sugar * 4 tablespoons ...more»
I Heart Coffee Bean!
One of the thing that I really missed about Los Angeles when moving to NYC was Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. I have a small obsession with Coffee Bean. I think their coffee is the best.

Imagawa Yaki: Japanese Adzuki Bean Cakes

I started off by reading French Women Don't Get Fat and subsequently doing the Magical Leek Diet. I loved it so much that I read French Women For All Seasons as well.

I'm home sick today, working away just as hard as I would be if I were at work, so I guess I can hardly call this being home sick. What are my symptoms? Well I have a headache, feel very tired, have a sore throat that makes me feel like I've been a chain smoker my entire life, and just ...more»

The best eggs are organic!
We have 5 chickens in our backyard and a turkey. The chickens lay about 1 egg each everyday and it's awesome. Organic eggs are the very best. Sometimes they are brown in color or even a greenish-white. Those are my favorite. They are so tasty and yummy and you know the chickens aren't left in a tiny cage so you ...more»
