Hi, I'm Rachel.

A few years ago I could barely boil water.

True story.

Determined to be a kick ass wife, I developed a love for football and learned to cook in my tiny Jersey City kitchen. I spend my days working in Manhattan, my nights and weekends chasing after a rambunctious toddler, and the hours in between cooking with my husband and feeding my TV habit...oh, and I blog about it all!

Five Things Friday

Well hello again. I don't think I've ever been so happy for the weekend! Tomorrow is girls day with my sisters and cousin and we have lots of fun things planned like massages, a little shopping and possibly a movie. I can't wait :)

I hope you all have a fantastic weekend! Meanwhile, here are my five things.


Amarita Singh earrings

My mom gave me a pair of these beauties and I love them so much because they are incredibly light weight. I have them in dark blue stones. Purdy.

Beatles songs

I finally loaded a whole lot of Beatles songs onto my iPod and it's made my walk to work quite a pleasure over the last days.


polka dot heels

I'm kind of obsessed with these.

The Taste Book

I made...yes, made...a cookbook for my mom and sisters for Christmas. I can't wait to tell you more about it!

China Glaze Gothic Lolita

I'm waiting patiently on the Capitol Collection (to celebrate The Hunger Games), but for now, I'll also salivate over the Electropop Collection and all the gorgeous pastels and Springy colors!


So there you have it.

What are your things this week?

I can't wait to learn more about the cookbook! I've thought about doing one but don't really know where to start.

That cookbook is such a fabulous gift idea! Also love the earrings:-) Have a wonderful weekend!

Everyone on TV is wearing the earrings. I saw Andrea Canning with the long ones in Fushia this morning.
What a mom you have.

I love all of your things - especially the shoes! I'm sort of on a shoe shopping kick right now, and I think those are officially on the list! Have a great weekend!
