Growing up my love for all things purple didn’t just apply to sneakers and crayons it also carried over into the food choices I made. Of course there aren’t really […]

Happy second day of summer! I don’t know about you but I’m a huge fan of summer reading lists. Not that we’re having much of a summer yet in New England but I fully intend to spend some quality time at the beach slathered in sunscreen and surrounded by a stack of good books, waiting […]

The closest grocery store to my apartment is a Whole Foods and while I love their produce and organic offerings I really hate their pre-packaged hamburger buns.
