Truwhip

May 10, 2010 Favorites

Have you tried this yet? I picked it up a few weeks ago in celebration of my boyfriend’s 31st birthday. Going for fruit over chocolate (healthy over decadent), we nibbled on strawberry shortcake whilst sipping champagne. And, what better to top if off with than all-natural whipped topping? I love cool whip and whipped cream [...]

Voluptuous Delights

April 29, 2010 Favorites

I’d like to introduce you to my new friend. I ordered this cook book a few weeks ago and have been enjoying it heartily since its arrival.

March 15, 2010 Favorites

New York Pizza in a D.C. Kitchen

February 18, 2010 Favorites

A few weeks ago, my boyfriend and I decided to make pizza. If there’s one thing I love, it’s pizza! Especially homemade pizza with all my favorite toppings. Typically, we pick-up a pre-made crust (cooked or dough from the fridge section) and just put what we want on top. [As you all know by now, [...]

The Only Fruitcake

January 15, 2010 Favorites

Yeah, I know what you are thinking. Fruitcake? Ewww. A totally unappealing, mysterious holiday tradition that no one can understand. Usually consisting of dry bread ensconsed in gelatinous fruit bits, the fruitcake has all but died out among my generation. But, maybe that could change? Baby, let me tell you, the fruitcake is back in [...]

So Delicious Creamer

January 13, 2010 Favorites

In exploration of non-dairy creamers, I recently posted an article proclaiming Silk soy creamer as a truly delicious coffee cream alternative. And I stick by that proclamation. Only now, I must I must add that So Delicious Coconut creamer is also truly delicious (possibly even more delicious) and must be tried. Immediately. I warn you [...]

Nothing gets me in the spirit of the holidays like egg nog. This year, I decided to give Organic Valley egg nog a try in order to give a little extra support tolocal, organic dairy farmers.

Be it due to lactose intolerance, boycotting factory farming and the unethical treatment of animals, or a vegan diet, it seems that consumption of dairy alternatives is on the rise.

Pom Wonderful Teas

September 28, 2009 Favorites

Thanks to the generous folks at Pom Wonderful, we were able to sample some of their new teas. We each tried two full-calorie teas and two light teas with only 35 calories and no artificial sweeteners! We loved these teas, but found that the key is picking the right flavor. We both agreed that a [...]

Last weekend I discovered Built products while shopping in D.C.’s adorable home store Home Rule on 14th St. NW. The store had on display several really cool and funky wine bottle totes as well as lunch bag totes. I was particularly interested in the lunch totes because I bring my lunch to work nearly every [...]
