tastebook.....

I love cooking!  I also love looking for new recipes and compiling them into my own cookbook.  I've handwritten quite a few over the years and use them constantly.  But now I have stumbled upon Tastebook!  Oh my God!  It is the coolest place for cooks!  You can search for and compile your favorite recipes (including your own recipes) into an actual cookbook!  How awesome is that???  I am thinking one for me and a couple as gifts for some of my friends who love to cook...  Check it out at Tastebook

smores cups....oh yum...

Happy Saturday everyone...  Thought I would share this yummy recipe for smores cups.  They are easy to make and the perfect little sweet bite at the end of a meal.  They are from the blog Texas Cottage.  A little comfort food for the chilly weather!  Have a great weekend!

favorite fridays....

Here is my favorite item this week...  These little vintage beauties are handmade by a gal here in Connecticut.  I just love them!  You can find her on Etsy.  Pair these with a pair of jeans, boots, turtleneck and a Lauren Hampton Belt.....



hearts....

We do lots of special orders for our clients.  You can request just about anything on a belt and we got this request last week for a belt that incorporated a heart, rhinestones and turquoise....

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend...........
