Harney & Sons is a family owned company thats been gracing every warm cup of tea for 30 years with an array of tea from green,white,oolong,herbal,decaffeinated and organic. Along with their wide range of tea they also sell bottled beverages,tea ware and tea treats.

I came across Harney & Sons while in the beverage asile at Target, I’ll admit I was instantly struck by the beautiful packaging then I began to examine the range of flavors, Green Tea With COCONUT?! I was sold! My fiancé however was skeptical, but it didn’t take long for him to indulge in a cup and say “wow, it’s really flavorful than most brands” Harney & Sons is no dupe, you’re indulging in the “real deal” of fine tea. Because of the great experience with this brand I started to try other flavors or as my fiancé would say I started collecting them 😉 what can I say they give my kitchen a pop of color and are easy on the eyes of my house guest, and who doesn’t like a dainty decorated pink tin after all the tin can be used for future crafts, a flower vase or to hold kitchen utensils (my crafting imagination is endless)

Would you join me for a cup of tea? 

Pumpkin Spice & Everything Nice


I’m a sucker for anything relating to Pumpkins! I purchased some home fragrances from Bath & Body Works to add to the ambience transitioning into fall. My home smells like baked goods, without the calories! I’m really pleased to see Bath & Body Works brought back the Sugared Doughnut candles, now if only they made it in to a body set.

What are your favorite fall scents?

Pumpkin Soup

With the fluctuating weather we’ve been having in New York and currently getting over a cold which I kindly passed down to my fiancé 🙂 (I’m sorry!) I decided to try out a Pumpkin Soup Recipe I found on the Yummly app           (Avaliable on iPhone,iPad and web)

Yummly app is my cooking bible! It has TONS of recipes from appetizers,breakfast,main course meals,desserts, drinks…you name it they have it!! Recipes also include image of the desired dish,preperation time, list of ingredients, calories and step by step instructions.

I read through the “instructions” a couple times just to make sure I knew what the heck I was doing and surprisingly it was a lot easier than I thought! As for taste, it was a very smooth purée consistency or as my fiancé said “it’s like eating baby food” with alittle spice which gave it a little “kick” (I don’t know of any cool culinary lingo so give me a break) overall I was pleased with the outcome considering it was my first attempt making it. I will say that it’s probably most enjoyable and appreciative during the winter season.
