Watermelon Mojitos …for the ‘Rents

Watermelon Mojito

AJ shook up this rockin’ Mojito at the peak of summer last year.  At the time, I was 28 weeks pregnant. (By omitting the rum, this drink makes a fantastic MOCK-tail that certainly delighted this Baby Mama!)  Back by popular demand, and with rum in-tow this summer, we are ready to toast the sun, the […]

AJ and I are expecting a baby boy this October!  I am finally lacing up my MasterChef boot straps and reclaiming my Brave Apron after months of “non bloggable” dishes.  Thanks Annie’s Mac and Cheese and Trader Joe’s Corn Bread for getting me through the first few months- I’ll see you again in a couple years.  Alas, […]

Beer Me…Honey!

For all you Bostonians, check out Great Pumpkin Ale at Cambridge Brewing Co. (1 Kendall Square, Cambridge, MA).  Pumpkin Ale is flowing on tap and can be purchased by the bottle now until Thanksgiving.  I love that CBC sources organic sugar pumpkins from Wilson Farms in Lexington.  Dip the rim in local honey and you […]

Fall gets tipsy with the Maple Flirt!

My fav fall outfit yet...

This adorable outfit at J.McLaughlin on Charles Street in Beacon Hill, Boston caught my eye.  Not only did this get-up strike visuals of leaf peeping in fur and flannel but it also whet my appetite for a fall elixir that would set a precedent for all things fun, fall and fab!  And thus…the Maple Flirt […]
