I’ll admit it. I love Whole Foods. I will also admit that I’m a total brand/packaging whore. Part of the appeal of Whole Foods is their image.

These carts come in a number of colors, are affordable, sturdy and versatile. In fact, I bought more of them and are currently using them […]

A few days ago, I brought you Pies Etc. and The ABCs of NYC. Today I have another amazing blogger friend of mine that I would like to introduce you to…Foodie Fatale. Jocelyn Ruggiero is a food goddess that I met several years back working for an industrial production event and she has a passion for food that really shows in her writing. She lives up in Connecticut and one of the best side effects is her focus on New England seafood and all that goes with it.
