A fresh take on the Pimm’s Cup for Wimbledon 2021

If you’re a tennis fan or an anglophile then you already know that we’re currently enjoying the best fortnight of the entire summer. I’ve been watching as many matches as I can in between real life stuff and maybe even fantasizing a little about what it would be like to take in all the refined …

Five Questions for Robert Glasper

Sunday Coffee with Joe Biden

Today’s Sunday Coffee Date is President Biden, who, after giving American’s his word (as a Biden) is leading the charge to vaccinate people against the Coronavirus. 100 Million Americans were vaccinated by President Biden’s 58th day in office, which by any metric is an impressive feat.

Quinoa Green Bean Salad

The weather is starting to turn. The sun is out more, and even if I might need it again before spring really, truly is here to stay, I’ve packed up my parka. It’s time to look forward to longer, warmer days. Maybe even dream of a socially distant BBQ with an Aperol Spritz, some charred …

Bar Cart Vibes

There’s something so classic about a bar cart. Grabbing a glass of wine out of the bottle sitting in your fridge sandwiched between last week’s wilted spinach and the third bottle of ketchup your kid has opened this week…where’s the glamour in that? Anyway, for whatever reason (gee, I wonder why?) I’ve had bar carts …

On Intention Setting

Do you set intentions for the month ahead or are you more of a go with the flow type person? For me I tend flip flop. Some seasons of my life I’ve been extremely goal oriented and others, well, let’s just say that asking me what I want for lunch at 11:59 am feels like …
