Welcome Messages

Reading a few of my favorite Blogs, I am almost never tired of unique al fresco dining decor.  This blog is full of inspiration. Outside my front porch, my hydrangeas have been growing quite beautiful. I have to admit, I am quite proud.  The goal  is to nurture them through this Summer season.  Every day when I drive up the driveway and see them they Welcome me like a big figurative “hug” from my home.

Hibiscus Tea

The Power of Tea

I just made this fresh batch of Hibiscus Tea with Lime and Coconut flavor. Yumm-O!

HibiscusMy little Recipe:

2 oz of dried Hibiscus Tea leaves

2 TBSP of Coconut Oil

2 TBSP of Agave

2 Limes

Bring 4 cups of water to boil. Add in dried Hibiscus leaves and simmer for 10-15 mins. Drain tea from leaves.  I keep my leaves and dry them out for 1 more usage later.Take liquid into a pitcher and add Agave, Coconut Oil and freshly squeeze in the Limes.  You can leave the limes in for added flavor. Refrigerate for 1 hour prior to taste. You may want to add more water or a seltzer (as desired) since the mixture is quite strong.

Some health benefits here and here.

NYC Summers – AH

A warm NYC Summer and Evening is the perfect way to enjoy the east coast.

F rollicking with good friends through Central Park and the Ralph Lauren Flagship Store made me very happy this week. Lunch at Pier1 River Cafe and dinner at Vapiano was fab.
