Fruit Infused Water

By now, most people have heard of fruit infused water or simply adding fruit to your water. This is a great way to add some flavor and variety to your daily intake. If you are like me, you get bored with drinking plain water day after day. I’ve found that by adding different types of fruit…

Mango Pineapple Upside-Down Cake

  I love sweets! Generally I would gladly choose a really good dessert over an entrée if I had to pick one. For me, nothing ends the day better than a good meal, followed by a great dessert and a cup of coffee, preferably blueberry. I love anything chocolate for dessert but when chocolate is not an option, Pineapple Upside-Down…

Chocolate Chip Cheesecake

One of my favorite desserts to make for the holidays is cheesecake. I love to change up the recipe by adding different ingredients and flavors.

Chicken Joe’s- Albany, NY

The new school year has begun so I made my annual trip up to Albany, NY. Before heading home I asked my son to give me some dinner options. Because I love chicken wings, he suggested Chicken Joe’s. This wasn’t exactly what I had in mind. I was thinking more along the lines of a sit down meal…

Smorgasburg- New York, NY

Smorgasburg has arrived in Smorg Square at the corner of Varick and Canal Streets! I am so happy the newest location opened right around the corner from my office.
