  • Unique Gift Ideas for the Hard to Buy for People on Your List

    We all have those hard to buy for people on our list.  They have everything and can buy anything they need or want, so what can I possibly get for them that they would actually want and don’t already have?  I did a similar holiday gift guide last year, so I did something different this time, I asked my friends and family what items they’ve gotten in the last year that they absolutely love and would recommend to others. Here is the curated list of unique gift ideas: For the Avid Traveler in Your Life So the first two are very utilitarian, but if you know someone that has to travel all the time for work, they will love these. Professional Weekender Bag– The backpack is TSA approved and can be unzipped in the middle so that laptop is by itself during the security screening, that way you don’t have… Read More

  • Holiday Gift Guide for the Hard to Buy for People on Your List

    Here is my holiday gift guide for the hard to buy for person or people on your list.  We all have that person on our list that essentially has everything they need/ want or a family member that lives far away so you don’t know exactly what to get them. Here are some of my favorite places to shop, because I have way too many hard to buy for people on my list.   For those recipients that love fruit you can always do a fruit of the month club, but my particular favorite fruit this time of year are navel oranges from is Pearson Ranch. When I used to live in New York City I found the winter months to be the most difficult time for me, one problem was the fact that I could never find great fruit. I started doing some online research and I came across Pearson Ranch. I love their California… Read More

  • Gluten Free Holiday Meals and Entertaining

    I love having friends and family over for the holidays, but gluten free holiday meals can seem daunting.  We usually have one or two orphans(someone who isn’t able go home for the holidays) and some family over for the holidays.  Our gatherings are usually pretty small, because our families are spread out all over the US, so getting everyone in the same room over a holiday is pretty impossible.   Entertaining does give me an excuse to set the table beautifully, bring out the nice serving platters, utensils, etc, but when you’re making food for lots of non-gluten free people, you don’t want them to feel like they’re missing out.  When I do have people over I usually make everything gluten free….I used to buy pre-made non gluten free stuffing, but everyone usually liked my homemade gluten free version so now I only make everything gluten free. In past years, I’ve ordered partially prepared… Read More
