I went to Michael’s with my boyfriend Rich and his family to celebrate his father Richard’s birthday, they have been going to Michael’s for almost 20 years. I’ve been to Michael’s many times but I have to say this has been my favorite experience at Michael’s so far, the food and staff were amazing as always, but this time I got to interview the manager to learn more about Michael’s and its history.
It wasn’t suppose to be a cheat day… I was going to try a salad or a lighter meal at Bistro 25 and stay on track, but as soon as I walked in and saw the menu I knew that wasn’t an option for me anymore.
I love finding new coffee shops, for me it’s like finding a new work place. Bringing a book, sketch pad, laptop or just your phone to get things done in a new atmosphere always inspires me. That’s why I wanted to create a basket that would show off some of my favorite coffee shops on Long Island. The basket includes a winter tea mug, tea sachets, and tea samples from some of my favorite coffee shops!
I first met Nerissa in her home with her husband Joe Vitale. You may know this name already, how? He is one of the stars in the movie, The Secret. The movie is about The Law of Attraction and its life changing results, something my mother and I witness everyday through our lives.
This was my first recipe that I would make for holiday parties and it always went over very well! This soup is super creamy, savory and has texture from the crispy prosciutto. This is my favorite soup to make in the fall, It has so much rich flavor from roasting the garlic and the squash and I promise your home will smell amazing.
Get ready to meet a whole new family, and no it shouldn’t be as awkward as meeting your boyfriend or girlfriend’s parents for the first time.
