It was a fast and busy week here. Other than catching up on my work, my brother-in-law was in the hospital. Luckily he is finally out and doing much better, but I felt bad that Matt and I couldn’t visit while he was there (too much risk of me getting sick). Anyway, things have been much better for the past day or so and we’ve been enjoying a nice relaxing weekend as a result. Last night Matt and I even went to a last minute early dinner at Barbuto and then finished off our impromptu date night with ice cream. There was pretty much no one in the city yesterday (everyone takes off for the 4th) and the lack of traffic and restaurant crowds was a nice treat. We are also trying to go down a long list of places we want to try between now and October so it was the perfect way to do it. Sidenote- if you have any NY restaurants that are a must, I’d love to hear!
Today we are off to see my parents and sister and actually going to a winery near them. Ah how I miss wine, cocktails, etc. I’m really not a huge drinker, but when you can’t have something you sure do want it!
Now for this week’s updates:
Most popular recipe/blog post: No Churn Oreo Fudge Swirl Ice Cream
Five favorite things I pinned all week:

I hope that you are all having a wonderful holiday weekend!
This was SUCH a great weekend for an impromptu date night!! The city was EMPTY. If you haven’t yet, you MUST try Northern Spy and Ilili.
I’m so sorry to hear about your brother in law!! Hope everything is okay!
Adding them to my list!!
