A lifestyle blog with a focus on my food adventures

Tag Archives: hosted

There are a lot of food events out there, but not a many that let pastry chefs flex their culinary muscles. I had the opportunity earlier this year to attend the Sugar Rush event, but the Donut Rise and Rumble is the only other dessert event I have heard of. This is the fourth year […]

Every year it is such a fun treat for the family to get to go to the Boston Christmas Festival and judge the gingerbread house competition. This was our second year judging the competition but we have been going to the festival for over a decade now. Nothing says holiday season to me like gingerbread […]

I have a confession to make. Thanksgiving is one of my least favorite holidays. I don’t even like turkey. (GASP!) So sometimes the idea of spending Thanksgiving away is very appealing. Cue the Boston Marriott Newton. A perfect place, close to home, where you don’t have to worry about making your bed or cleaning up […]

I know a lot of families that don’t take weekend vacations because it’s just too much of a headache. You pack up your kids and your 85 suitcases with diapers, bottles and 8 changes of clothes per day (because you know food is going to get all over them at SOME point in the day) […]

I have to admit that when I first heard about Roche Bros. in Downtown Crossing, I didn’t realize that there was a downstairs. So here I am thinking, hmm… a market with just a salad bar, a hot bar and prepared foods? What’s so special about that. It was only after talking with a friend […]

This holiday season has me feeling a little nostalgic. I was asked to participate in a campaign for Macy’s this year and it got me thinking back (WAY back) to when I was a kid and what shopping was like then. First, there was no Natick Collection. The Shopper’s World isn’t the one that you […]

It’s that time of year – the holidays. Are you team Christmas or team grinch this year? I’ve been a little grinchy I have to admit…Thanksgiving snuck […]

It’s a wrap for the third annual Forbes Under 30 Summit here in Boston. The city was filled with celebrities, amazing young talent and yes, a cranberry bog. On the second night of the summit, I attended the Under 30 Food Festival at the State House. Chefs traveled from all over the world to compete for […]

I was invited to check out the Paper Store one evening a few weeks ago to check out the latest fall fashion. Yup, you read that right. That store that you know and love for greeting cards, invitations, and all things party also has a great selection of clothes, jewelry and accessories. So next time […]
