There’s a pastry house in NYC that’s created quite a buzz – BabyCakes Bakery. In a city dominated by movement, action and a 24-hour-on-the-go lifestyle it’s easy to understand why so many New Yorkers are addicts. These addictions include coffee, donuts, cookies, brownies and cupcakes. Sugar is what pleases this crowd. [Read more...]
For many, choosing to buy fresh is associated with hunting your local market for the USDA ‘Organic’ label. And for most, this isn’t a chore that you look forward to. Well have no fear, organic foods are abundant and near. Since going organic I’ve found a few ways with quick online research and firsthand experience on how to shop around and on a budget (as a college student this is important). Here are a few…
Organic farms are becoming an increasingly popular place for the health conscious to buy their food. Eating food produce sold by organic farms boosts the local economy, reduces a carbon footprint and means eating healthier, seasonal foods. However, finding working farms specializing in organics sometimes proves a challenge, especially for people new to the organic game.
There are several ways people looking for organic produce, meats, and dairy products can find nearby farms, no matter where they live or how experienced they may be.
It’s almost certain that only a decade ago terms like “locavore” and “certified organic” weren’t even blips on your radar.

When it comes to learning something new, having the right guide, mentor, or teacher means everything; without that expert instruction, your chances of failure are almost a certainty. I learned this lesson first hand, in grand fashion and almost literally in a blaze of glory. Earlier this year I decided to learn to ride a motorcycle. I’ve always wanted to ride one, to be like Marlon Brando in The Wild One. And I thought this was a good idea. I was older and more responsible than I’d ever been. My mistake was my choice of mentor – let’s call him Jim. Jim had crashed his motorcycle and, as a result no longer drove one. But as friends go, he was the only one who could teach me to ride. Not surprisingly, he explained in vague generalities, didn’t go over the importance of posture, or that the clutch is worked with the feet, not the hands. I rode that bike straight into his mailbox. Crash and burn.
