Wild Hibiscus Co.

I love getting creative in the kitchen, especially when it comes to experimenting with lots of colors. So, when I decided to try some products from , I was really excited. My favorite products were the hibiscus flowers in syrup and the hibiscus flower extract. I use them to make mock-tails (and the occasional cocktail)!…

Sheila G’s Brownie Brittle

These have been a long-time favorite snack of mine. The best brownie piece to get is the corner, right? With Sheila G’s brownie brittle, you get the crispy corner piece every time. It’s amazing.

What you CANNOT miss at Brooklyn’s Smorgasburg

With the return of summer each year, we all look forward to something else. What I look forward to: the return of Smorgasburg. This year, as soon as the market opened in April, I made sure to spend an entire Sunday at Smorgasburg in Prospect Park. Although it’s been around for years, the festival remains…

The Tao of Tea

I’ve always been a tea drinker. Caffeinated, decaffeinated, hot, cold, fruity, herbal, green, black – I love it all. When I walked passed The Tao of Tea booth at the Fancy Food Show, I sampled one of their delicious teas and knew I had to try more. I made sure to get some more flavors…

Poke Restaurant

This month, I decided to take a trip to the Upper East Side to try Poke Restaurant which, by the way, is all the rage in NYC nowadays. New York City is known for pizza, cheesecake, deli, bagels, pretzels, and much more… but not sushi. For a while, I’ve said that I’ve had much better sushi outside of New York. That all changed when I tried Poke Restaurant on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. I walked…
