It's a rainy day and I want to curl up on the couch with some creamy, warm food that will not sabotage my week of healthy eating. Eating Well has a scrumptious Mac & Cheese recipe that will warm you up, and let you spend the afternoon lounging guilt-free.

Farmers Market

I stroll through the Union Square farmers market every morning on my way to work and it is one of my favorite parts of the day. The smells and bright colors are relaxing amidst the city bustle, and the fresh veggies and cheeses are delicious! Wouldn't it be nice sometimes to live on a farm in the middle of nowhere? Check out your local farmers market.

Artisnal Pizza

Everyone has his or her favorite pizza place, ice cream parlor, or coffee shop to rave about. However, I prefer making my own pizza. When I go out, I find that the pie is just missing one ingredient... more salt, more garlic, more basil (usually more basil). So, Ben and I enjoy whipping up our unique creations. Ingredients to our fav Greek pizza recipe are below...

Chicken, pepperocini, basil, mozzerella cheese, feta cheese, pizza dough from local pizza shop, pesto (homemade is best), and articoke hearts

I wont break it down into the measurements and steps... you get the point. Bake away!

Hamptons Getaway

I just got back from my first Hamptons vacay and it was everything I had imagined! We had lovely weather on Saturday to lie on the beach and do a little boogie boarding in the waves. I want to go back again next weekend. Check out some other fun New York get-a-ways here.
