As many of you already know, I love learning of new and up-and-coming specialty food brands that are a perfect fit for my entire family. One of the most important things for me is supporting small, family-owned businesses from all over the world. These products I recently learned about are organic, non-GMO, Kosher, and or gluten-free. Everyone at home loves these brands and I hope you check these brands out as well.
The Squeezery, located on Main Street in Amagansett, is everything one would wish for in a juice and smoothie bar: hip and friendly staff, laid-back atmosphere, live music, art, a cozy couch with a take one/leave one ‘library bookshelf, ‘boozy’ juices or ‘detox’ cocktails, local sourced produce, and so much more.
After visiting for the first time last week during the Hamptons International Film Festival, I instantly realized that this is a spot to frequent year round and tell all your friends and family about. If you have not been in yet, it is about time you checked it out! The owners are Sam Schoenheimer and James Huertas, two mates who hail from the United Kingdom and opened The Squeezery Memorial Day Weekend of this year.
Over Columbus Day Weekend, I visited Williams Sonoma in Bridgehampton and was delighted to meet and speak with Dmytro Guydash, Executive Sous Chef at Jean-Georges at Topping Rose House. Chef was doing an afternoon cooking demo and tasting, showcasing one of his autumn inspired pasta dishes made with fresh sage from the Topping Rose House’s garden, butternut squash, craisins, and mushrooms. After speaking for some time, he invited East End Taste to Topping Rose House the following evening for a dinner tasting, highlighting the restaurant’s fall menu.
I have visited Topping Rose House for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and cocktails on several occasions during the past few years and have always been impressed with their genuine mannerisms and exceptional cuisine while basking in a refined dining experience. During the warmer months, you have the opportunity to sit outside on their veranda overlooking their beautifully landscaped property.
Just before my son was born three weeks ago, I was introduced to several new diaper bag essentials. Becoming a mom for the second time, I have noticed the feeling of being overwhelmed had dissipated compared to when I became a first-time-mom almost four years ago because I was prepared and knew which brands were reliable. I remember then that there were so many products out there but I never had the time to read all the reviews and weigh my options.
I am introducing my readers five new brands (and one that is already cherished) I am confident you will fall in love with and take with you wherever you go. Discover these diaper bag must-haves that will make your life all the more easier! View Post
With all that has been occurring in the United States these past couple of months, especially focusing on the flooding, heat, and hurricanes, I would like to introduce you to a new devise I have discovered that will help keep your family safe. OWL, or Open Windows for Life, is an American made credit card sized device that is the new generation auto escape tool. The compact size is perfect for keeping in your wallet and in your car in case of an emergency. From natural disasters and auto accidents to power failure and animals or children being left in a hot vehicle, OWL is a phenomenal tool for protecting loved ones as well as yourself from these emergencies.
The OWL safety escape tool is able break car windows and cut a seatbelt in a matter of seconds. After being introduced to this product, I would highly recommend it to anyone. I had always kept a Swiss army knife underneath my seat, but I find this product to be much more effective in what it is designed to do. I stick it discreetly on my visor in its bright green silicone holder so I know where it is at all times. You can also store it in your wallet.
