An email arrived late last week from a mutual friend of ours, Rob Diebboll, who happens to be a lovely local artist. Rob recently moved his studio to the quaint seaside town of Rockport and invited us to stop by during the town’s Motif #1 Days festival. I’m not only a fan of Rob’s work […]

CK and I just dragged ourselves home from the annual brouhaha that is the Harvard Square Mayfair. Along with our good friend Anna, we essentially ate our way through block after block of tempting festive food vendors. Everywhere you looked there was something edible: sausage, french fries, kettle corn, ice cream, burgers, pakoras, and even […]

You know how Carrie Bradshaw is all “hello lover” when it comes to Manolo Blahniks? Well that’s what I said when I saw this Turkey Hill Junior Mint ice cream today in the freezer section of the Porter Square Shaws. I literally stopped in the middle of the aisle and did a double take. Then […]

The Oh! Nuts company graciously allowed me to sample a number of their products recently. One of the items I selected was a bag of their dried blueberries. Now I’m a big fan of dried fruit. CK and I eat dried cranberries like it’s our job, but no dried fruit from Whole Foods, and on […]

Target has been offering up a wealth of holiday food oddities this year. On the same trip that I purchased all of those Andes Baking Chips, I also came across these Gingerbread Pop-Tarts. Now I like a Pop-Tart from time to time, but they have to be of the frosted variety. I’m also more inclined […]
