Rebecca’s Thanksgiving tradition: making pumpkin bread. But not just any old pumpkin bread (would you expect anything less?). Her recipe brings back all the best childhood memories, not to mention makes the house smell great. She first had it at preschool—yes, preschool—and she loved it so much, she’s made it every year since. Super sweet, right?
We obviously had to see what we were missing, so we got her to share the recipe.
RM’s Very Special Pumpkin Bread
2 cups all-purpose flour, spooned into measuring cup and leveled-off, plus more for coating the pan (RM uses gluten-free flour these days)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground
For a jolt of cab-free fresh air, us New Yorkers jump at the chance to visit Sleepy Hollow. The upstate destination is the ideal locale to see the leaves change. Plus, it offers the best activities to fully embrace the chilly (and spooky) season. Here are our favorite spots to hit up when we’re in town.
To get yourself in the spirit, start off at the gravesites of Washington Irving and much of the gang who inspired the “Legend of Sleepy Hollow:” Ichabod Crane, Katrina Van Tassel, Brom Bones and the Headless Horseman. They’re all buried at (or near) the Old Dutch Church, aka the oldest standing church in New York. And it’s still a functioning church, believe it or not.
As we head into fall (and before we dive headfirst into holiday season), I’ve decided to go on a health kick. And because diets are no fun on your own, I’ve recruited my husband, Gavin, to join me on this bulletproof diet journey.
The promises: more energy, less cravings, and weight loss. What you have to avoid: sugars, processed foods, corn, gluten and dairy (save for grass-fed butter). Since I haven’t been going at it too long, jury’s still out. That said, here are three things that have surprised me thus far.
1. My cravings for alcohol are mental, not physical.
I sincerely miss the emotional response — the om, the relaxing “Ahhhhhh” — I used to get from sipping a glass of wine. But the last time I drank some, I got
When we needed a jolt of energy and health leading up to fashion week, we turned to our friends at Sakara Life.
With their long blonde hair, legs for days and inner glow, the company’s founders Danielle Duboise and Whitney Tingle could easily be mistaken for runway models. In fact, it’s Danielle’s previous life as a model and actress that propelled her to make healthier choices when it comes to what you put in your body; instead of focusing on the consistent struggle of weight loss.
From there, a healthy eating plan was born, which has evolved into a wildly in-demand (with a little help from famous fans like Lena Dunham, Lily Aldridge, Karolina Kurkova and Erin Heatherton) organic meal delivery service.
Our spring 2016 show is behind us. While we may be breathing a major sigh of relief it doesn’t mean the madness is over. We can’t get enough of this week’s hustle so no way we are taking a break now. There’s loads to be seen and lots of places to be “seen” but we’ve rounded up our favorite fashion haunts near Skylight Clarkson Square. Fashion Week also = the ushering in of fall and these are the perfect places to cozy up when the chill hits. We can’t get enough.
Calling all Francophiles. This cozy West Village spot is an Instgrammer’s dream. And the food is delicious to boot.
What we’re eating: Save room for the chocolate mousse. Don’t worry you’ll walk it off running between shows.
