Chit Chat Twenty Fourth Edition

Tags: , ,

Happy Friday! It’s been a crazy past couple weeks, lots to chit chat about :)

455bdcb4a60611e3bd7112f52e1c24e4_8

Last Friday I was on my way to NY to meet Amanda for a fun girls weekend.  We’ve had this planned for a while and I can not tell you how excited I was to go back to the city!  I had my magazines, Tieks and I was ready to go!  Oh and can I just say that I walked ALL day in my Tieks and they didn’t bother my feet even once.  They are the perfect traveling shoes.  So excited to collect more colors :)

f1a811e02d1b11e39ade22000a1f9bd0_7

We met at the hotel Friday evening and headed out to dinner to “Parm.”  Not even kidding the best Chicken Parm I’ve ever had.  The baked ziti was to die for too.  Keep in mind that it is a very small restaurant, so call for reservations to prevent long waits.

71376a34a67311e39f0c127ea8075ce8_8After shopping it was time for some late night Max Brenner.  This 80’s Milkshake and S’mores Waffles are such a treat.  Theres’ nothing quite like it.

Breakfast

We had some amazing breakfast during our trip.  The picture on the left is from Laconda Verde and we had a Zucchini Fritatta and Lemon Ricotta Pancakes.  Those pancakes were some of the best pancakes I’ve ever had.  So excited to try and re-create them at home :)

The picture on the right was from the cutest little bakery/cafe called Sugar and Plumm.  We ordered those crunch french toast sticks topped with fruit and lots of butter.  Such a treat.

We made our way to Chelsea Market after breakfast.  Seriously one of my favorite places to shop and eat ever.   Such a charming place.

Jen and Amanda

Had so much much fun walking around the city!  Time Square and the cute Oreo Wall in Chelsea Market.

b5d177c0a65511e3922012ca563d2d5b_8

Later Saturday night we walked around Union Square.  So gorgeous at night!

Celebrity Sightings

These are my favorite pictures….while we were walking through Eataly in Union Square Saturday night, for a split second, I made eye contact with Scott Foley….of Scandal….of Felicity walking through the busy walkways!!  I stopped dead in my tracks and after I froze up I managed to tell Amanda who it was, lol!  We turned around and followed him (In the green puff jacket, this is exactly what he was wearing).  He and his friend walked very quickly into one of Mario Bataly’s restaurants so this is the best I got.  We were dying.

So, the picture on the right is a bit out of sequence, but after I left NYC, I had to fly into Atlanta and I saw Ian Somerholder of Vampire Diaries!  Not even kidding.  I was talking to my mom at the time and could hardly even talk, lol!  Can you tell I don’t do well around celebrities?!  I wanted so badly to ask for a picture with him, but just couldn’t do it.  Such a chicken!

Sweets

We also tried some fun treats while we were there.  Had an assortment of macarons from Dana’s Bakery like the left peanut butter and jelly then some amazing gelato from Amorino shaped like a flower!  Love!!

18cc829ca7a611e3b20812f5f9c24049_8

Sunday morning, there was no question that we were going to Levain Bakery.  I mean look at that cookie!  Hot out of the oven, chocolate peanut butter heaven!

10686bc4a70711e3a4fe12e807355677_8

After breakfast at Sugar and Plumm and getting our nails done we made our way over to this fun Bowery Mural.  Its a huge wall painted with these amazing colors.  It also just happened to match my Tieks, lol!

97a2e222a7c011e399cf1236f53363c7_8

Later Sunday afternoon we made our way over to Rockefeller center to watch the ice skaters and grab a bite to eat at Bouchon.  How perfect is this?!

90b027aca71311e3b0931235e617111d_8

 

Can’t say enough about Ippuddo.  We had the best steamed pork buns and Ramen I’ve ever had.  You have to start lining up 1/2 hour before they start dinner at 5pm or you’ll be waiting a very long time.  We got there about 4:45 and got right in.  A must visit!!

e1bae520a73f11e397c91214db85cd40_8

 

You know we had to go to Serendipity 3 for Frozen Hot Chocolates!  This time I tried the peanut butter frozen hot chocolate and it’s even better than the original if you are a peanut butter fan.  Delicious.  Keep in mind that even at 11pm there will be a wait.  We got there at 10pm and had to wait 45 minutes to be seated.  Good thing Dylan’s Candy Bar Shop is just down the street to browse through while you wait!

29b376faa84711e3a4791265b540b690_8

 

Amanda and I stayed at the lovely Omni Berkshire Place Hotel and had the best experience.  They made sure we had everything we needed and then some.  Highly recommend them!!

So much fun packed into 2 days in the city.  There’s just nothing like a little trip to NYC!  Can’t wait to go back again :)

Have a great weekend!!

I’ve put together some of my favorite places to eat while visiting this weekend.  I intend to eat every single one of these goodies, lol!  Can’t wait!

 Bouchon Bakery, Columbus Circle location is a classic and has the best macarons I’ve ever had.  The vanilla one is to die for!

Chelsea Market is one of those places you could just move in and live in the walkways.  So many fun places to eat and shop.  Food Network Studios are here too.  A must visit.

Eleni's New York City

Inside Chelsea’s Market is Eleni’s Bakery.  A must visit in Chelsea’s Market for whimsical sugar cookies and irresistible cupcakes.

Serendipity 3 is a classic.  You don’t go to NYC without getting a Frozen Hot Chocolate from Serendipity.  I re-created the recipe, be sure to check it out HERE.

Magnolia's Bakery NYC

I know I’m talking mostly sweets, but a trip to NYC wouldn’t be complete without a visit to Artisinal Bistro for the best mac and cheese around.  Love!!

Have a wonderful weekend!!  I’m going to live by the motto that there’s no calories when on vacation, lol!  At least I’ll feel better :)

Chit Chat Twenty Third Edition

Happy Friday!! Feel like a little chit chat? Oh good, me too :)

47b4595a951c11e38e3512dccb63aae0_8

Phew, the last few weeks have been busy, fun and busy again.  Things got started on Valentine’s Day when we took a road trip back to CA to visit our friends and  to visit Disneyland.

b6854c3a95d611e3b03c122316c9835a_8

I love being a mom to all boys and all, but what is it with “being too cool” to stand for pictures for your mother?!  You have no idea what I have to do to convince my boys that I am not kidding about taking pictures at Disneyland, lol! I swear it’s like pulling teeth to get them to stand by Mickey, lol!  These knuckleheads need to know that you are never too old or too cool to get a pictures with Mickey.  Sheesh!

8648a1b495b011e39de3128d20e3cdec_8

It had been a few months since Pax has been to Disney with us and he was LOVING the rides this trip.  Melted my heart watching him clap for the animals on the Jungle Cruise.

1c01558097fe11e3a85812e53dd2af8c_8

My girlfriend Brandi and I snuck out for a quick breakfast before we went back home and shared these lovely blueberry pancakes.  If you visit Southern California, go try Champagnes French Bakery and Cafe for these pancakes.  To die for :)

61d67f9a92a911e3b33a12e185860505_8

I was making my Oreo Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies last week and had a tiny bit of cookie dough left in the bowl.  I stuck it inside an extra Oreo.  Just do it.  Not kidding.  Yum!

bbd941d298f611e38eef12ee29d0ca8c_8

Loved this thread on Instagram when I posted this picture of my spaghetti noodles.  We probably have spaghetti once a week and my boys don’t get sick of it.  Does spaghetti show up on your dinner table weekly like it does ours?

f41505c6919511e387631276d587f697_8

Sometimes you catch the perfect picture.  I  found Pax and Mason snuggling on the couch last week.

cbc4db6a9a6811e39f7a120b2aae41eb_8

Cullen and I had a weekend to ourselves with no kids in Park City with some friends.  Barely had time to unpack and re-pack our bags from California.  We hit up Paradise Bakery in the airport before our flight and my grilled cheese was extra cheesy!  I wasn’t complaining :)

6d0112b89a8d11e3aec11210beee93d8_8

We made it to Park City!  It.was.COLD…but so pretty.  Cullen and his friends went snowboarding.  I went skiing, or I should say tried to ski.  It had been over 15 years for me, so let’s just say I’ve got some lessons to take, lol!  Loved it anyway :)

3cd355989bdb11e3946c12acc09e8934_8

Had a snowy fruit and yogurt breakfast one of our mornings.  Love!!

c494d7249b6611e384d00e5a8c16bf4a_8

Got to go to dinner with Maria and Josh at Deer Valley’s Fireside Dining.  What a treat!!

628cb16e9ca111e3a03f1268528d6865_8

Stopped for breakfast before heading to the airport and shared these Utah Scones with our table.  Hot fry bread dusted with powdered sugar with a elderberry sauce for dipping.  Gulp.

home-pic-org

I recently tried a new soda called Dry Soda.  It is a less sweet, all natural soda made with just four ingredients, including a little bit of pure cane sugar. Each of DRY’s eleven unique flavors is perfect to sip on its own or paired with a meal.  Check it out!

fe40a9a2926111e39df312c88b6315b6_8

Had some fun peek a boo time with Pax at the breakfast table.  This little boy is such a joy.  Happy mom.

Pax is just about 18 months and loves to say “what’s that?!” at everything in the house.  He loves to point at airplanes in the sky, roar like a lion, moo like a cow, say “woof woof” like a dog, give kisses and say thank you when you give him something.

Have a great weekend!!

Chit Chat Twenty Third Edition, Top 10 Things You HAVE to Eat at Disneyland

Happy Friday! Happy Valentine’s Day!

We are at Disneyland today, be sure to follow me on Instagram to see the fun :)  Talking about the Top 10 Things You HAVE to Eat at Disneyland today!

Top 10 Things You HAVE to Eat at Disneyland

Since we are spending the weekend at Disneyland I thought it would be appropriate to highlight my favorite eats at Disneyland.  Let’s take a look shall we?  The castle just never gets old does it?

Disneyland Churro

First and foremost Disneyland is not Disneyland without eating your fair share of churros.  There’s just something about Disneyland’s churros that are irresistible and highly addictive :)

Chocolate Peanut Butter Sandwich

Likely my favorite treat at Disneyland…..the chocolate peanut butter sandwich.  You can find this at a number of places at Disneyland, however my favorite is at Pooh Corner Bakery in Critter Country.  It’s just kind of a tradition and I would hate to break tradition :)

Disneyland Chocolate S'mores Bar

Nearly as delicious is the chocolate s’mores bar.  Crispy chocolate with a layer of soft marshmallow and graham cracker at the bottom.  Mmmm!  Ordered this at Pooh Corner Bakery as well.

Disneyland Mickey Caramel Apple

I don’t get these much, but I do love looking at all of the cute apples that Disney offers.  These are displayed from Pooh Corner Bakery as well.

IMG_9485

One more from Pooh Corner Bakery is the White Chocolate and Chocolate Chip Cookie.  I have to say, there has been times it’s a bit on the dry side, but if you happen to get a fresh one…..sooo good :)

Paradise-Garden-Grill-California-Adventure-2

My husband’s favorite thing to order is this flaky Baklava from Paradise Grill in California Adventure.  I know it’s not technically Disneyland, but we always do both parks when we visit!  Be sure to try this one! Totally surprised us.  We are not even baklava fans and this completely changed our minds :)  UPDATE: 3/2014 – on our recent trip to Paradise Grill we ordered a baklava and was disappointed in it.  Upon asking the workers, we found out they recently changed the recipe.  Now, there’s a thick pavement like layer of walnuts that ruins this once desired treat.  NO LONGER RECOMMENDED!!!  Go HERE to see a new item we recommend.

Pomme Frites from Cafe Orleans

Cafe Orleans in New Orleans Square has some of the best french fries in the park.  They are the Pomme Frites.  Pleeaaase order another side of the dipping sauce.  It’s so good and isn’t nearly enough :)

Disneyland's Monte Cristo Sandwich

If you are a Disney goer you have heard of the famous Monte Cristo Sandwich.  You can order it at Cafe Orleans as we did here, or also at Blue Bayou.  It is absolutely sinful.  Deep fried ham, turkey and cheese sandwich dusted with powdered sugar, dipped in a berry puree.  Weeeeee!

Disneyland's Dole Whip

The beloved Dole Whip from the Tiki Juice Bar!  A must!

Disneyland's Corndog Truck

You can’t beat The Corndog Truck on Mainstreet!  The greasiest, crispiest best corn dogs you’ve ever had.  Gotta try these!

Flos-V8-Cafe-Review-12

I know it’s not food, but I can’t wait for Radiator Springs this weekend!  Such a fun ride at Disneyland…..worth the long line.

94e3c9fa1c0d11e3b50722000a1fbd1f_7

Disneyland wouldn’t be the same without my crazy family of boys.  This was one of the last trips we took before we moved to AZ. We’ll see if I can bribe them to take pictures with me this time, lol!

IMG_9310

Have a great weekend, I’ll be sure to eat some extra churros for you!  See you Monday with a new recipe :)

Oh, did I miss any of your favorite Disney eats?? I’d love to hear your favorites :)

LipBalm_NewSubCat

I have been on the hunt for the perfect chapstick for a verrrry long time.  There’s nothing worse than chapped lips right?!  Well, Burt’s Bees came out with a new flavor….Blueberry Dark Chocolate!!  Not only does it smell like a dream, it works wonders!  Go check it out.  I think it was under $3.

Honey Whole Wheat Pizza Dough Recipe by Picky Palate

I made my husband take these photos of me and my pizza dough.  Kind of love how they turned out!!  Funny thing is I had no make-up on and my hair was still  in a messy bun from the gym.  Haha!  Funny what a dress and red high heels can do :)

Vanilla Cherry and Chocolate Cherry Ice Cream Floats

LOVING Your Home Based Mom’s Vanilla Cherry Ice Cream Float!!  My boys are going to go nuts for this!!

93520129735672804

Since moving to AZ and having a home to decorate, I have been obsessed with positivity quotes, photos, chalkboards….the list goes on and on.  I love surrounding myself with great quotes and uplifting words.  Found this cute text from Pinterest.  Love it!

Paper Source

These Valentine Cards from Paper Source!!  One of my all-time favorite stores.  Can’t wait to go see all of the other goodies they have!

Stella and Dot

Loving Stella and Dot’s new collection, especially these charm necklaces “Love” and “You are my sunshine.”  How fun!  I think I need both, lol!

Chit Chat Nineteenth Edition

fe9df0ea77e411e3ab1b0a2a798555c5_8

Happy Friday to you!  Another Chit Chat edition today.

Has life slowed down a little since Christmas?  It definitely has for me.  I am finally feeling at home in our new AZ location.  I think with the move being right around Thanksgiving and Christmas I was so busy that I couldn’t enjoy being in our new home completely.  That sounds ungrateful, but now that we are half way into January, I am LOVING being here in AZ.  I snapped this photo above of Pax running to Brady when he was walking home from the bus.  I love to see how much they love each other.  Melts my heart!

eab51fd67afa11e3b9d6128aa754a4ad_8

We took a weekend hike close to the Superstition Mountains with the kids, grandparents and cousins.  The weather could not be more beautiful right now.  I’ll be singing a different tune come summer, lol!

24ef6810781111e399dc0e684c850baa_8

Have you heard the news on Instagram yet?!  Waffle Love has a food truck in AZ!  Yippee!  I went to their “blogger night” and was blown away by their waffles.  Follow them on Instragram to find out their weekly locations.  They also have locations in Utah.

c0f30b2677db11e3ba0a12150fa9af5b_8

Can you believe this cheeseburger?!  It’s from Liberty Market in Gilbert, one of our favorite places to visit.  Stay tuned for our full review coming soon.

8c800ac593f51a47ea6fbf49eb00dc19

I am finally back on Pinterest.  I took a break around the Holidays.  I fell in love with this great print.  I am totally into positive quotes all over my house right now.  I found the print online and it was $50 which seemed really expensive.  Instead I created a similar print on PicMonkey and had it printed at Walmart for $2.50.  Can’t wait to go pick it up and frame it :)

9c5f9df27f0011e3a91412128f76ceb1_8

 

I decorated a little shelf for Valentine’s Day.  I am going to try to do one for each Holiday this year.  Most of this is from Target.  The Bird and Love letters are from Kneaders.  They have the cutest little home section.  Shopping and lunch, can’t beat that, lol!

9a71ff72bc0e94b11fd8be299d8b9b46

Drooling over Marla of Family Fresh Cooking’s Blueberry Coconut Steel Cut Oatmeal.  Love her gorgeous photos too.

3b849caf08e593ee6e33fc78fae59042

Also loving Heather Christo’s Frisee Pear Salad!!  This photo!!

c083c88c5649d10860049565971ceb64

 I am dying to make a roasted Chicken thanks to Donna Hay’s gorgeous recipe.

cbb41f9eaeec68a02f46a0f22ba0f550

Are you kidding me with this Cheesy Ham Bread?!  Let me just plant my face it in.  Thank you “The Noshery.”

3fe9a7e87bcc11e3828f12d505f2f3bb_8

I’ll leave you with Pax and his funny little one piece suit.  Love this kid!

Chit Chat, Happy New Year

Happy-New-Year-2014-Wallpaper-Android-Background

Happy 2014 to you!!  Can you even believe how fast 2013 went?  I don’t know if it was because we had a baby around the house or if I’m just getting older, but time flies!!  Hope your Christmas and New Years were great.  We have been enjoying this time off with the boys.  Lots of sleepovers with the cousins, zoo trips and play time.  New recipes coming first thing Monday morning!  Looking forward to some healthier options after sooooo much eating that took place in November and December, lol!

Christmas Pics

So, my Father in Law aka Santa came over for a visit and Pax flipped his lid, lol!  He did not want anything to do with Santa.  I didn’t torture him too long, just a quick picture then I saved him :)

What a treat it was watching my older boys help Pax open his Christmas presents.  They all melt my heart!

Last week, we watched 2 of Pax’s cousins who all happen to be under 2 weeks apart from each other.  How sweet are they?!

db90a0e0730011e3a08d0e239001fb18_8

Everyone has New Years Resolutions to get fit for the New Year, right?  I am motivated to get moving everyday.  I plan to go to the gym or do my favorite heated yoga class at least 5 days a week.  That’s the goal, hope to stick to it this year!!

The WE Project

My cute Sister in Law recently started The WE Project, these adorable badges that stand for “It’s Cool To Care.”  100% of the net profit of the badges will be donated to their cause in changing kids lives and bringing awareness to bullying and the real devastation it causes.  With each new run of badges, they partner with a new cause.  LOVE this!  Be sure to check out their Website and follow them on Instagram!

New Home Pictures-3

As some of you know, we just moved to Arizona in November.  It’s been a bit of a whirlwind with unpacking and getting ready for the Holidays, but I finally got a few rooms of our home decorated, yay!  This is my entry way picture wall.  I’m kind of addicted to chalk board pictures, they might be all over my house, lol!!

New Home Pictures-5

Found this accent chest/buffet from American Furniture Warehouse in Gilbert.  I believe it was under $150.  The chalkboard and clock both from Hobby Lobby.  Don’t get me started with Hobby Lobby.  LOVE that place!!

New Home Pictures-1

Left side of my living room.  Neutrals and stripes!  Furniture all from American Furniture Warehouse.  Bookshelf and chair from Ikea :)

New Home Pictures-2

Found this “i wheelie like you” pillow from Nordstrom last week.  How fun is that?!  Had to have it :)

Kitchen

Here’s the left side of my kitchen.  Love the space I have and can’t wait to update the cabinets,countertops, appliances and flooring if we decide to stay in this house long term.  I think it would be a really fun project!

Still working on my family room and bedrooms.  Lots to do, but having fun in the process.

New Home Pictures-7

Found a chalkboard print of Pinterest I tried copying for my chalkboard.  My boys always crack up when I get my chalk out.  Not bad for my second try, lol!

Have a wonderful weekend!  See you Monday for new recipes!

Chit Chat Christmas Edition

1 Flake  text

 

Hope everyone had a beautiful Christmas with family and friends!  I get a good laugh every time I look at our Christmas Card this year, because Pax wanted nothing to do with standing for the picture, lol!

I am overwhelmed with joy this time of year.  Can’t believe I get to be a mom to my 3 beautiful boys.  We had a great Christmas and are looking forward to a bright 2014!  As some of you know, we just moved our family back to Arizona last month, so we are getting settled more and more each week.  What a blessing it is to be close to all of our family again.

Enjoy the rest of your Christmas break, see you soon with more recipes from Picky Palate :)

xoxo

Jenny
