The whole is greater than the sum of it’s parts.

These past few weeks have found this Pesto-preneur out and about but never too far from the kitchen. Several weeks ago we trekked out to the Meadowlands to see U2 on tour celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Joshua Tree album. It definitely is easier to see a show in NYC but when U2 is…

My new friend Rhubarb

In preparation for the long Fourth of July Weekend, Dave and I put on our walking shoes and headed south by way of Ninth Avenue, cut over 23rd Street and headed down Broadway to the Union Square Greenmarket. It was hot and humid so a short stop into Barnes and Noble was what the doctor…
