  2. Living Room: A Tour of The First Chateau FH – 2013

    Well now that you know me and have seen a million views of how I entertain, you probably want the tour. So here it is, a little look behind the scenes at my living room situated right in the heart of the Flatiron District, NYC. Yup, thats a slight peek at my built-in glassware storage in my Dining Room. Total lifesaver since it saves SO much room for all of my other entertaining bowls and plates in the kitchen! Even though we have a lovely dining room, we love have our high top top right outside of the kitchen for…

  5. Chicken Mango Curry Couscous

    Since mangos are in season, I was so excited to whip up this delicious recipe I found in Family Circle Magazine.* It’s common to see mangos mixed in with your breakfast yogurt or even in your lunch salad, but combo’ed with chicken? I wondered how it would taste… and well, it’s incredibly yummy! A true mix of salty and sweet, and I love the hint of curry to boot! I also love that this recipe is a whole meal in one – it covers your protein, starch, veggies, and fruit categories. So, simply serve for dinner in a bowl and…
