Home, sweet home- sometime in the future.....Montana.

More about NYC... and some great gelato.

Loved visiting Trinity Church- close to ground zero. My husband loved this history of this place, and I loved the old bell, the old headstones and the hydrangeas. Visiting ground zero was humbling and amazing at the same time. No matter what your beliefs or feelings are about the events that transpired on that ill-fated […]

The Blue Lemon

The Blue Lemon- pure clean food with a twist. I know the name is a little different, but let me tell you about the food. The sweet potato fries were to die for. They have a special sauce- better than your typical fry sauce, and the flavor satisfies your taste buds. Their salads are fresh- […]

Sweet Corn and Blue Cheese Salad

I changed this salad slightly, so I thought I’d remind you of this great recipe, hidden away… not really hidden away, but in the Only the Sweets section of the blog. This time, I added 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro, and also used Grapeseed oil in place of Olive oil. It’s my new go-to oil. […]
