milk + cookies

chocolate chip cookies
german butter cookies
Even though the myth of Santa is long gone in our household, making milk and cookies is still a fun family tradition during Christmas.

We hope you all had a wonderful holiday!

This weekend we channeled our inner francais as we paid a visit to Williamsburg for the Yelle concert and enjoyed a delicious brunch at Le French Diner (Zucco) on Orchard St.  Tucked away in a cozy space in the LES, Zucco is a stylish nod to classic French favorites like croque madame and ratatouille. We recommend "Le Quartet Du DiManche" if you are going on a Sunday!

Crystal chandeliers instantly add luxe to any room, but we may just like these fun alternatives a bit more.

winter white

We've never bought into the whole no white after Labor Day mantra. The cold season is a perfect excuse to pair a luxe winter white dress with patterned tights and a great pair of heels or bundle up in a creamy white coat. Here are some of our suggestions to keep you rocking this classic shade year round:

wrap it up

We've been counting down the days...Wolfnights has finally opened @ 99 Rivington and we were lucky enough to be their first customers last night! All we can say is, DELICIOUS.  Definitely not your classic wrap, but surely a gazillion times better. 

We went for the Brother's Grimm: chicken wrapped in a chestnut & chilly dough with pickled shitake mushrooms, raisins, plantain chips, and a chipotle aioli sauce. And on the side, the homemade beet salad. The best part, our bill was $10. Our prediction--the newest addition to the LES is going to be a huge hit.

family recipes

pumpkin stuffed ravioli
stuffed artichokes
sweet potatoes
crab stuffed mushrooms

My mom is a fabulous cook and unlike myself, rarely ever looks at a recipe.  These are some of our family classics just in time for the holidays...nothing beats a homemade meal by mom!

What are some of the dishes that remind you of home?

Although we'd like to pretend that our lives call for wearing bustiers and garters every night, the reality is we typically stick to teddys and babydolls...on a good night (wink). In honor of Victoria's Secret's amazing fashion show last night, here are a few of the sexy go-to's we love.

Hope everyone had a great weekend! We both escaped the city for the holiday and it reminded us of how much we love living in this town (despite our shrinking wallets!) . Here's a playlist dedicated to good 'ol NYC:

party time


Many girls probably woke up today praying they'd be able to burn all of those Thanksgiving calories in time for the holiday party season.  Our solution: you don't have to.  The sweetheart top, empire waisted dress is a god send.  Notice any other consistent trends in the outfits we pulled together?  
Leopard print is everywhere. 
It's all about studs and glitz.
Faux fur is the real deal. 
Always look for a pop of color

We attended our friend's annual Friendsgiving feast this past Sunday, so much fun!  There's no better way to kick off the holidays than a potluck with awesome friends.  Our Brussels Sprouts Gratin and Apple Coffee Cake with Crumble Topping and Brown Sugar Glaze were definitely a hit. If you need a last minute recipe for Thanksgiving, give these easy recipes a try.

saturday stroll

Nothing beats a beautiful fall day in NYC.  
This weekend we took advantage of the gorgeous weather to walk around Soho. First stop, we couldn't resist the stacks of delicious cookies at Vesuvio Bakery.  Next up, the conveniently parked Van Leeuwen's ice cream truck for a spicy cup of Mexican hot chocolate. And we finished up the day with good company and great selection of cocktails @ The Dutch.

We highly recommend ALL of the above!
