Homemade Pickles

13 Aug

I am one of those people who is obsessed with pickles. If it were socially acceptable, I would probably bring a jar of pickles to work and chomp away at my cubicle all day. I mean, what is not to love? And if we’re out to dinner or lunch, and you have a rouge pickle on your plate, don’t be surprised when I ask you for it. 

And although my love for pickles has been a life-long affair, it wasn’t until last week that I decided that I should (and could) make my own at home. I used this recipe for easy refrigerator pickles. I still have to wait two more days until these bad boys are ready. But if they’re going to taste anything like they look, I’ll certainly be making them again.

I made one jar of spears, and the other of sliced pickles (as seen above)

Summer Travels

7 Aug

I honesfly cannot believe its August–and with this comes the realization that I haven’t been able to blog nearly as much as I would have liked. Instead I’ve been traveling loads. Here are some of my recent adventuress

(1) Roof deck of the Gansevoort Hotel on Park in New York (2) Upgrades galore at the Bryant Park Hotel in New York (3) Took a trip down to the city a few weekends ago to meet up with friends, but absolutely had to stop at a kosher deli before heading back to no-deli-land (boston) (4) Took a quick trip home to DC (5) Spent one night last weekend at Martha’s Vineyard where I saw this beauty on a casual stroll through Oak Bluffs (6) Oak Bluffs sign right next to the jumping (Jaws) bridge. So glad that Shark Week started this week or else I legitimately would not have gone in the water (7) always happy to come home to Boston
