review: the silent patient, by alex michaelides

The Silent Patient wasn’t at all what I thought it was going to be and I’m not entirely sure what that even was. It was recommended to me by a friend who listened to it on audio, so I followed suit and did the same. I think I have a million credits on Audible and I just keep forgetting to use them…at any rate. I would classify The Silent Patient as dramatic suspense with a little romance thrown in. The story revolves around the intersection of lives between Alicia Berenson and her therapist, Theo Faber. Set in the United Kingdom, Alicia has been accused of murdering her husband, Gabriel. An unfathomable act considering how madly in love they were—an act that has…

review: fast lane, by kristen ashley

It’s been a while since a book has stayed with me long after I put it down. Fast Lane was that book. Which is ironic, because the author, Kristen Ashley, was inspired to write this book after reading Daisy Jones & the Six, a book that stayed with her. She said it was the first time she had prolonged reading a book because she was enjoying it so much. I haven’t read Daisy Jones & the Six, but you better believe it’s on my TBR list for 2020. (Ashley also cites truly listening to the lyrics of the The Eagles song, Life in the Fast Lane, as added inspiration.) Fast Lane is written in an interview format. The narrator, whose identity is…

christmas in new york

For years, I’ve been fortunate to visit New York during the Christmas season. It’s been a self professed tradition since my college years, if not before. While I don’t make it to Rockefeller Center every year, I’ve come pretty close. However, 2019 was my first visit since 2016–the last 2 years having been outside the norm for me from a Christmas celebration perspective. But my annual tradition was reinstated over the course of the last several days and I had the added pleasure of spending the night rather than making a day trip. To top it off, I was accompanied by one of my closest friends and 2 of her children, who had never been to NYC–what an honor! The weather was…

apple pie sangria

I whole heartedly admit that I have absolutely no idea when apple season begins and ends. But I like to think that we’re still in the midst of it. So with that in mind, this cocktail is perfect for this time of year. (Or let’s be honest, is there ever a bad time for sangria?) A friend of mine brought a pitcher of this to a Thanksgiving party a few years ago and I have been making it ever since for gatherings. Apologies for not sharing sooner. Bottoms up! Directions: Add wine, vodka, apple cider, and Fireball into a pitcher/jug Dice apples and pears (bite size) Stir, stir, stir Chill for at least 2 hours Add the cinnamon sticks 1 hour before…

apple, orange, cranberry sauce

If you’re like me, you’re not a big fan of the cranberry sauce that magically retains the shape of the can it comes out of. After avoiding this side dish at every pertinent holiday, several years ago, I discovered a Williams-Sonoma recipe for apple, orange, cranberry sauce and my family and I have never looked back. While I’ve altered it a bit from the original, trust me when I say it’s every bit as delicious as the first year I made it. I am very thankful for this flavorful cranberry medley and think you will be too. Happy holidays!
