Bits of My Week...

Enjoying Brunch at Jane
with friends. 

My HUSBAND always makes the best dinners, here are a couple of the plates he made this past week.

Here I am at the Nespresso event in SOHO that Padma Lakshmi hosted. This was one of the coolest events I've been to. The goodie bags were huge & there was plenty of food & coffee!  

Padma spoke about her favorite coffee & let us in on her signature recipe "Nespresso Vanilla Coffee w/caramel Milk froth" - recipe below! 

Below: This was a huge fair on 3rd avenue - unfortunately, I went by before brunch with friends, so couldn't eat anything! 

A dinner I made for my husband below-normally he's the one that cooks every day, but when he's busy, I'll whip something up. 

My husband caught this picture of me & Darla asleep on the lounge - Glad she wasn't too GASSY that afternoon because her butt was totally facing me.

Waiting for her belly rub as she stated on her twitter page. Yes, my dog has a twitter page: @darlatheboxer

Does yours?

  1. I love the nails on the Louis Vuitton bag. The gold is so luxurious.
    All of the food looks AMAZING! I can't believe you got to meet Padma Lakshmi. I'd love to meet her one day, she's a foodie icon.
    can your husband come and cook me dinner one night... for real.

  17. Jen...all of your meals look outstanding. Great documenting of what looks like an amazing week! xoxo

  18. Thats looks like a pretty good week.. and you have a husband that can cook.. and I don't mean open a jar of marinara and boil pasta (my husband can't even do that) but he can actually cook.. wow. and then I see your plate and you do an equally amazing job..

  19. Hi Jen,

    I love your new header, it looks fantastic!
    I don`t know how you were able to resist all those yummy cakes and watermellon, I wouldn`t have been able to! Darla looks so cute and you need to post the delicious looking chicken recipe you made. I need some new recipes. Has your hubby ever considered doing some guest food posts for you? I'm sure they would be a hit!


  20. Love your dog bed, where is it from?

    The nespresso shop in Soho is SO amazing. It's crazy how big it is for such a small little pod of espresso!

    Love the photos,


  21. so cute.
    loved this watermelons...


  22. Aww another sneak of the house! Wahhh where are those pictures?! And my dog has a facebook page...and she's listed as my daughter. My friends wait they KNOW I'm a total kook.

  36. What a great blog ! The picture of you and Darla made me literally laugh out loud. My own dog loves to sleep with his cautious end towards my face.

    You are lucky, your husband not only cooks, but also the presenation.... it looks so beautiful on the plate! My dog does the same, aren't they adorable? You have a great blog, soooo interesting. I just realized that there is not a single day, when I am not visiting your blog.
