Will Raising Prices Impact Your Brand-Loyalty?

Will Raising Prices Impact Your Brand-Loyalty?

I’ve been a devoted Method laundry detergent user for more than three years. Prior to that, I used All Free and Clear for years because it was free of fragrances and dyes that make me itch and give me hives. I changed detergents because Method was more natural and more environmentally friendly. The variety I […]

I Heart Vitamin Stix

I Heart Vitamin Stix

| August 1, 2008 | 0 Comments

To say I was apprehensive when I agreed to review 4C’s Totally Light 2Go Vitamin Stix would be a massive understatement. After all, they are sugar free, something that doesn’t normally strike my fancy. But it was the best pitch from a PR person that I have received in the lifetime of Sarah’s Cucina Bella. […]

Toddler Picks: Three Things We Love

I am not generally a big fan of convenience food products, but we’ve stumbled on a few lately that we (we being Will and I) really like. Even an ardent believer in home cooking like me believes that sometimes, packaged food can help create a decent meal in no time flat. But remember, homemade is […]

Oh. My. Lord. I’ve discovered the perfect workout video for me. And I can do the whole thing without thinking about it . . . that’s a great sign. Anyway, the video arrived and I couldn’t help but think the woman on the cover looked awfully like an Asian Jane Fonda circa 1985. But, who […]

I love, love, love fresh blueberry pancakes. Love them. I barely need syrup for them because I love them so much. But I still cannot seem to make them from scratch. Wish I could, and I will keep trying, but no success yet (at least not success that I would EVER eat again). And I […]

A taste of ‘ino

A taste of ‘ino

| July 31, 2007 | 3 Comments

For a friend’s birthday several years ago, she wanted to try out a little West Village Italian Wine Bar known for it’s bruscettas, tramezzinnis, and paninis called ‘ino. The tiny restaurant doesn’t allow reservations and, as a result, we had a long wait to get in. I hate long waits anywhere, and this was no […]

As longtime readers may remember, I have been in a quest to shed excess pounds for quite some time. I managed to lose all the baby weight within a year of birth, but there is some excess weight (and a little back-to-work weight too) that has been plaguing me the last few months. With a […]

I received The Good Home Cookbook in the mail a few days ago after Andy of Spittoon Extra fame alerted me to these babies being given away to good homes so long as they got honestly written about. Honesty? That’s my specialty! First off, I was totally shocked by the size of this cookbook. It’s […]

Review: Panino Sportivo

Review: Panino Sportivo

| December 8, 2006 | 0 Comments

Before going to New York the other day, I looked for new and upcoming eateries in the Columbia-Barnard area. One that caught my eye was Panino Sportivo, which is located beneath Barnard College’s Plimpton Residence Hall in an area that once held rundown and rarely frequented ethnic eateries. For starters, just seeing people at this […]

Ok. So yes. I am a native New Yorker (however living outside of New York, but still close by). And yes, I had never been to The Container Store . . . until today. Oh. My. God. I am such a container junkie (and no, I actually didn’t buy anything due to an unreasonably long […]
