Hamptons goers are some of the luckiest around when it comes to dining options, and no experience is ever complete without diving your spoons and forks into a luscious, creamy, gooey, chocolatey, or whatever your heart desires, dessert plate. So let’s dive into something sweet this summer! Below I have curated five favorite desserts I have discovered so far this season that everyone must try (at least once).
Wasserstein Home has recently launched their new line of essential oils. Their line is a luxurious, diverse collection of pure essential oils that are perfect for the home, office, and even to give as a gift for almost any special occasion. These reminded me of a gift a friend was given after her wedding as a surprise for when she arrived home with her husband from their honeymoon. She had received an essential oil gift set and it was that same friend who had introduced me to the benefits of essential oils over five years ago. It was perfect timing for me as I was just getting back into my yoga practice after a two years of not being able to attend classes. Essential oils should be apart of everyone’s lifestyle and hold dozens of health and wellness benefits.
Wasserstein Home‘s collection consists of 100% pure aromatherapy essential oils. Their packaging is BPA-free and their oils do not contain any additives or fillers.
Crowd Cow has created a very easy to navigate and thorough website that not only teaches us about cooking and preparing each cut of beef, but also reminds us of how important it is to support sustainable farming. It has never been any easier and more concrete than now. Crowd Cow, which has recently launched its nationwide customer reach, believes in enjoying incredible beef the right way: sustainably and humanely. For me personally, this is one of the best food industry concepts I have learned of in many years. Founders Joe Heitzeberg and Ethan Lowry wish to erase the wary and uncertainly of ordering beef at your typical grocery chain and have created a crowd funding sales style of purchasing ethical, and ‘artisanal’ beef.
Most often you do not know which country the beef is coming from, even if there is a stamp that reads “grass fed.” Instead, Crowd Cow customers pick the specific cuts and quantity they want while enjoying the convenience of ordering online. The site encourages meat lovers to rally their family and friends, claim a share, tip a cow and become a “steak holder.”
