MapMyWalk

Today I tried out a new app.  MapMy Walk.  It isn’t everything I had hoped it would be (mostly because i cant figure out how to retrieve my walks), but it did provide me with ….. A map of my walk, at least the part where I remembered […]

Coppenhagen Bakery for Brownies

and Brasserie Cassis in Plainview for a Croque Madame Lunch. Google pointed me to Edible Long Island and the page for a walnut filled chocolate brownie.  The description sold me so off we go to Copenhagen Bakery to find out for ourselves. after an hour and a half […]

Graces Market

I hadn’t been in for years when we walked past yesterday and thought to go in just to grab some lettuce for dinner. Of course, since its a market and there were few other customers I took the opportunity to shop a bit. Stopping at the bakery counter […]

Woops

Last week when we had dinner with the kids at Fiorello was the first time I didn’t bring them a take home treat.. wouldn’t you know, Kate brought me something. Macarroons from Woops. I have to tell you they were my first ever macaroons and i like them, […]

Croton-on-Hudson

Finding a supermarket where the aisles are clean, the produce is fresh, and the quality of selection is generous has been a problem for the past few months. Given this, I am on a search for a great market out of the city to ride to on the […]

Milano Market

East Village for Dinner

Early in the planning stage for my day, while checking out OCD chocolate, the east village library branches and squish marshmallow I started looking around for dinner spots.  Being a fan of the mac and cheese, and Brad a fan of the cheese plate , I was drawn […]
