Wordless Wednesday: Red Mango Hits Fulton Street

My favorite Red Mango concoction: original + chocolate + strawberries + chocolate chips + coconut = YUM. Red Mango on Fulton Street opened up right before the three-week rain storm, but is finally buzzing now that we have finally hit summer. I’ve got The Hubby and the girls completely addicted. xo Triple Threat Mommy

Girls Night Out: NYC’s The Meatball Shop

My girlfriends from college and I go on a GNO every month. Not to date myself, but we’ve been doing this since the late 90’s and it has been such a great way for all of us to catch up with each other. At our GNO’s we’ve announced engagements, pregnancies, job changes (or eliminations!) and divorces. Besides having amazing girl bonding time, the other great part is taking advantage of all the…

Guest Mommy Blogger: Where to Bring Your Family to Eat in NYC for the Holidays

As you all know,  I have become a very big fan of MiniMunchers.com – a great site that I wrote about on November 12th.  Mini Munchers is the ultimate resource for children’s menus in NYC. It is the first and only website to not only search for and research restaurants with children’s menus in Manhattan but to rate the kid-friendliness of the establishments. So, I am so excited to have…

Things You Can (and Can’t) Do in Downtown NYC this Thanksgiving Weekend

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  I probably have an inkling of what you’ve got going today:  probably some cooking, baking, traveling, eating and maybe even watching some football.  So, what happens after Thanksgiving?  You’ve got three days to keep the kids — and you — entertained so I’ve compiled a list of things to do (and things you can’t do) in downtown NYC this Thanksgiving weekend. All of the activities keeps you…

MiniMunchers to the Rescue for our Friday Family Night Dinners!

I had stated earlier this week that the TTM family has weekly Friday Family Night dinners out.  It’s a great way to unwind after a crazy work week for both me and The Hubby, and it’s a fun “night out” for the girls who enjoy eating at restaurants.

Financial District NYC Restaurant Review: The Bailey Pub & Brasserie

We heard about a new restaurant that just opened up in the neighborhood, The Bailey Pub & Brasserie on 52 William (corner of Pine).  We read about their $7 kid menu – which comes with complimentary ice cream – and we just had to try it for one of our weekly Friday Family Dinners.  Our usuals consist of Harry’s Italian, Cowgirl Seahorse or Barbarini Alimentari down in the North Seaport area,…

Food Network Magazine Recipe Try-out #1: Sausage and Clams with Polenta

A friend of mine several months ago showed me a new magazine that had just come out:  the Food Network Magazine.  It is a FABULOUS magazine that is so great and easy to use – especially for the working mommy!  I had just started subscribing this past summer, so I have been in for 3 issues thus far, and have tried a  handful of recipes from each of the issues…

Katie Lee’s Recipe: Lamb Burgers with Olive Tapenade, Pickled Onions, Tzatziki and Bibb Lettuce with Succotash Salad

Since we’ve had our two girls, the thought of having a civilized “dinner party” was never part of our weekend repertoire.  First off, dinner is usually held at the early-bird special time of 5:00 p.m., and usually consists of Chicken Fingers, Annie’s Stars, Mac & Cheese or anything of that ilk.  Now that the girls have “grown up”, we’ve decided to bring back the civilized dinner party back — at…

Free Dunkin’ Donuts Coffee Sample!

Ok, so I am a member of SheSpeaks, which is a community of women who sign up and share opinions on products. You sign up and based on your answers on several questionnaires, SheSpeaks sends you products that you test drive.  You then log on, write your opinions and basically get heard by those products makers (usually big, large corporations!).  It’s a great way to be ahead of the curve…
