Have a Caffeinated Christmas!

November 12, 2007

As my boyfriend pointed out to me the other day, it’s now officially the holiday season as Starbucks stores all over the world have broken out their signature red cups. For the next few months we’ll all be able to brighten our mornings and drag ourselves into the office with steaming hot Egg Nog, Gingerbread, […]

The Latte Fairy

November 7, 2007

Once upon a time I received a Starbucks gift card and I used it diligently to purchase Grande White Chocolate Mochas and Venti Cinnamon Dolce lattes until the balance reached zero and I tossed it out.

Review: How to Cook Your Life

October 10, 2007

One of my favorite places to buy loose leaf tea and accompanying accessories is Tealuxe. My boyfriend discovered Tealuxe a few months prior to our move back to Boston. Since then I’ve purchased items from their online store as well as in person at their Harvard Square location, and I’m totally smitten. We’re tea drinking […]

Hell’s Kitchen: Will Bonnie Be Broiled?

August 2, 2007

I think we can all agree that Hell’s Kitchen is the consummate train wreck of culinary reality TV. But if this is the case, why am I, and so many other people completely addicted? I even have a season pass set for it on Tivo. Do we tune in en masse each week just to […]

Cookbook Review: The Tea Experience and White Chocolate Raspberry Bars

July 26, 2007

The Tea Experience, the latest publication from TeaTime magazine, offers a smashing array of recipes and images from tea rooms across the country that would make even the Queen herself drool (if Queens actually did such things). It’s a bit heavy on the Southern tea establishments (13 reviews to 5 actually) as the majority of […]
