How to make small scale gatherings feel special

Times are weird. I think we can all admit that but this unfortunately is our new normal. No matter what happens we are going to have to adapt the ways in which we live, including how we host dinner parties, happy hours, girls’ nights, date nights, you name it we’re adapting. As a way to bring some normalcy to life I’ve been hosting friends at my house. For those that feel comfortable being inside we ...

Impossibly Delicious Cocktail Holiday Edition: Merry Christmas Happy Holidaze

Sadly it has been a little while since my last cocktail recipe but not to worry, I’m back with a variety of concoctions to help you drink your way through the holiday season and the inevitably brutal winter that we’re bound to have since we’re currently enjoying 60 degree weather here in NYC … and it’s DECEMBER.

So while I wasn't in Texas this year to enjoy the festivities I was able to have quite the time ...

Impossibly Delicious Fall Recipes

Tis the season for delicious fare and not just the decadent holiday kind either.  I love this time of year when I actually have a chance to cook, there are some how more hours in the day (kidding!) but it seems that way during the week now that the sun is no longer shining bright until 8 PM, there are fewer happy hours, events, things to do and I don’t mind being inside when it’s ...
