Autumn Sangria Recipe_10

I’m so excited that Autumn is finally in bloom! The summer weather lingered around much longer than usual and it seems to have taken forever to witness the most iconic signal that fall has arrived – the changing of the trees. I just love this time of year when the weather is crisp but not too cold and we get to witness the beauty of the green leaves transforming into beautiful golden hues. Sadly, being in New York City we don’t always get to see a ton of trees outside of Central Park but  I rented an adorable little cottage …

Watermelon Frose Recipe-1-4

As I’ve gotten older, it’s become harder to spend quality time with my best friends. We all live in different cities now, one is married with children and with our busy lives and careers it’s rare that we’re all together in the same place.

Lightly sweet and infused with the …

Cranhattan Cocktail Recipe 5 copy copy

When planning a holiday celebration, I always have a signature drink on-deck that I can serve up at a moment’s notice. I love a warm and oaky bourbon during the cold weather months and since ’tis the season for cranberries, I decided to put a cranberry twist on my favorite bourbon cocktail. Dubbed “The Cranhattan,” this drink adds a seasonal touch to a classic Manhattan cocktail with a splash of sweetened cranberry puree. Before we get to the recipe I should let you know that I’ve teamed up with Pottery Barn for a fabulous giveaway so be sure to read …
