Happy Toasted Marshmallow Day!

Can you believe there is a day to celebrate the Toasted Marshmallow?  I’m just upset I didn’t come up with it first!  I love toasted marshmallows.  I was a camp counselor in college and for Masquerade Day one year I went as a Roasty Toasty Marshmallow.  My mom helped make my costume out of batting…

Getting back on track…

So after a doozie of a weekend, I left early for work fully expecting to be late due to mass transit delays.  Somehow I managed to get to work this morning in record time.  After the heavy amount of rain combined with the brilliant sun the city looked freshly scrubbed and glittered with all its…

No, Don’t Come On Irene…

Mini Recipe Box

*I’m trying something new- blogging from a bus* So, I have the best coworkers! Today I got this cute mini recipe box (with 10 cupcake and 10 frosting recipes) from one of favs!

Review of Starbucks Bistro Box: Chipotle Chicken Wraps

Between the rain and therefore a shorter walk combined with the appealing, yet unwanted protein shake powder at my desk my lunch options were slim today.
