#3DaysToGreen Movement with Evolution Fresh

I’ve never believed in “juicing”.  Although I’m somewhat health conscious (ok … maybe I’m more than somewhat health conscious), I would rather eat my veggies than drink them. However, I’ve been hearing a lot about Evolution Fresh green juices and thought it was time to give it a try.  I figured if I was going to try it, it better be Evolution Fresh because it’s the only juice I can feel good about drinking.   There’s nothing added… no preservatives, no sweeteners and no added flavors – including the natural ones.  And each bottle is made from ONE POUND of vegetables!

Love Life {and pizza} – Brick + Wood in Fairfield, CT

There are few things on earth that we enjoy more than a good pizza.  We are, without a doubt, pizza snobs.  Oh – and wine.  Can’t forget about wine. We have Jeff’s mother to thank for that… We’ve had pizza & vino everywhere between New Haven and New York City, and from the Italian Alps to Puglia!  We’re happy to report that Brick + Wood delivers an authentic taste of Neapolitan pizza courtesy of their amazingly flavorful dough and expertly crafted brick oven.  It’s all in the name – a brick oven powered by wood. Before we dove into the

Caramelized Onion & Tomato Flatbread

Pizza.  Can’t live without it zyban smoking. This flatbread is a fantastic recipe, perfect to make as an appetizer for any dinner party or cocktail party.  It’s one that everyone will love – fresh and flavorful.  Just don’t be surprised with the plates are licked clean. This recipe was inspired by the pool bar we frequented at the FontaineBleau in Miami while we were there for my bachelorette party.  Yum!  Great on a hot summer day or even a cozy winter day. Ingredients: 1 uncooked pizza dough 4 tomatoes, sliced thin Arugula 2 onions, sliced thin (not chopped) Burrata or

Brunch @ Washington Prime

After our last visit to Washington Prime in South Norwalk, CT for dinner, we’ve been back quite a bit.  This is the finest of compliments because, hey, there’s just so many good places around to choose from! Last Sunday, we got together with our fellow bloggers and enjoyed a delicious brunch at Washington Prime.  They have a new buffet style brunch which honestly is a great format for brunch.  Some people (like me) like a breakfasty brunch and some people prefer more lunch brunch.  So this way, everyone is happy and can taste a bit of everything. And with the

Little Barn – Westport, CT

Rustic charm, a relaxed atmosphere and  upscale comfort food are what define Little Barn in Westport.  It has all of the ingredients that embody a go-to spot.  Whether you just want a Bud Light or are craving a bold red wine, Little Barn has you covered.  We spent a quintessential crisp fall night there recently and had the chance to enjoy all of what makes this place special. Outdoor patio Cider – mulled & spiked with Fireball. Black Rock Lemonade – American Harvest Vodka & fresh lemonade with a black cherry-jalapeno puree Giant pretzel with spicy stout mustard and honey

Rizzuto’s – Stamford

Mondays are not most people’s’ favorite day of the week.  Luckily, now that we are deep into the heart of football season there’s Monday Night Football to break up the week.  Recently, I had the pleasure of joining the folks at Rizzuto’s in Stamford for a football and poker night!  Yes, you read correctly, football and poker…on a Monday!  The great crew that runs Rizzuto’s decided that as a fun way to bring people out for a casual weeknight they would organize a free entry poker experience that their general manager hosts as the dealer.  You can even redeem your winnings

Homemade Whole Wheat Taralli

Some of our favorite things to eat are classic Italian treats that an Italian grandmother might make. They’re the types of things that usually don’t have a written recipe. When you ask how to make the dish, the directions are often full of handfuls and dashes. We recently had the pleasure of going over to our friend Enza’s house to learn how to make taralli. For those of you who are not familiar with taralli, they are Italian biscuits that can have pepper and/or fennel seeds baked into them. They go great with wine and cheese or just as a

Easy Dinners with McCormick Skillet Sauces

After a crazy week, the last thing you want to do on a Friday night is cook a difficult meal.  So we turned to McCormick Skillet Sauces to make things a little easier on us.  After work, I swung by our local Walmart and picked a few packages up and with 7 sauces to choose from at only $1.69, I was excited to get home and have a yummy, easy meal.  Oh… and relax a bit. Fajita Chicken Tacos Ingredients: 1 package of McCormick Fajita with Roasted Chili, Garlic, & Lime Skillet Sauce  1 pound chicken tenders 1 onion, chopped

Hana Tokyo – Fairfield, CT

Ever since the first time I went to a Japanese hibachi restaurant in California as a child, I always get a bit giddy when I walk into one.  There’s something about all of the sights, sounds and smells that hibachi brings out.  Who doesn’t enjoy some fire on a grill in front of you or sake from a squeeze bottle?  Last week I had the chance to check out a Hana Tokyo in Fairfield, which combines a nicely appointed sushi bar with a dining room of hibachi tables. Upon walking into Hana Tokyo, I was greeted warmly by their staff and promptly

Fall Brussles Sprouts & Kale Salad

There’s nothing like the flavors of fall!  Fall squashes, Thanksgiving meals, bold red wine… As everyone knows, brussels sprouts have been a very popular vegetable over the past few years.  Between last year and this year, we’ve been seeing a lot of kale too.  During our last Stew Leonard’s shopping adventure, we discovered a Kale & Shaved Brussels Sprout Medley that we couldn’t pass up trying out!  This is the perfect fall recipe and will complement any meal.  Plus, it’s healthy and super simple to prepare! We recently learned all the ways you can use Hood Sour Cream in every
