Leinenkugel’s, Sprinkles, & Easter Bread!

Have you guys ever been to Total Wine? It’s in New Jersey and it’s amazing. They have a huge selection of liquor, wine, & craft beer! Stopped by to restock Brian’s Leinenkugel Summer Shandy stash and it took a lot of discipline to NOT buy crates of Vouvray. If you’re ever in the area, I highly recommend paying them a visit.

Visited a friend of mine who just bought a house in upstate New York. She made this cake and the Easter Bread below. So delicious. I don’t bake because I hate anything that has to do with measurements and precision (also why I don’t sew but that’s a whole other discussion.) Also, my pantry isn’t stocked with any baking staples because I threw everything out when I switched to organic and I haven’t gotten the chance to hoard. Not that I need to anyway, I try to avoid sweets like nobody’s business.

Anyway, she packed some leftover bread for me to take home so I reheated them on the griddle & served them with caramelized bananas! All of that with a hot cup of coffee for Sunday’s breakfast and I was ready to tackle the day.

New Sunnies, Churros, & a failed trip to Dough Loco.

This weekend, as Le Boyfriend & I were driving from Brooklyn, he looks up at me and says in a really somber voice, “You know what? …I could really go for some donuts.”

Of course, I’ve been saving a cheat day to finally pay Dough Loco a visit – this donut shop in East Harlem which serves up Miso Glazed donuts. MISO GLAZED?! Miso intrigued.

New York City is for the birds. Also, John Hughes Hotties!

It’s overcast and drizzling today and there’s nothing I’d rather do than to curl up on the couch in front of the TV, watch John Hughes movies, and order take-out. I’m lucky enough to have a job that allows me to be able to listen to music or put Netflix on in the background while I do work. I have three favorite John Hughes movies: Sixteen Candles, Pretty in Pink, & The Breakfast Club and Netflix is has two out of three. Looks like I’ll be playing 80’s movies in the background today!

Bag it, Coppin it, Washin it, ‘Bout to go & get some compliments!

I have a favorite thrift store in New Jersey and I’m not telling you which one. All I can say is that it’s huge, resembles a warehouse, and you have to dig through CARTONS of clothes based on handwritten labels on the boxes. I bought this tunic from there for a whopping $8 after rummaging through a box that’s been labeled “70’s Rayon”. Amazing.
