Trish Becker Jewelry has been a favorite of mine for years. I have earrings and necklaces from TBJ that I wear to death. The line just has a great feel to it: it’s beachy but you can wear it in the city and/or in the winter, it’s trendy but not going to be out of fashion next week and it’s affordable.
So, when Trish agreed to do a trunk show at the shop I was thrilled. The show is days before Mother’s Day and I promise you can find something your mom will love. Join us on Wednesday, May 4th for a little happy hour (4PM – 8PM) or Thursday, May 5th from 10AM – 4PM.
The tulips on Park Avenue are one of my favorite things about springtime in New York and the blooms are getting close to perfect. If you have the time, walk Park Avenue and enjoy the beauty, it doesn’t last long!
This heart-healthy recipe for turkey meatloaf, courtesy of Dr. Brent Ridge, is delicious. What I love about meatloaf is that it can be dinner one night and lunch later in the week. I also love that you can alter the ingredients as you like or according to what you have in house and it’s always excellent.
2/3 cups panko (Japanese) breadcrumbs
1/2 cup milk
3 pounds lean (7 percent) ground turkey, preferably organic
1 medium onion, finely chopped
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons ketchup
1/4 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon coarse salt
1 teaspoon rubbed sage
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Place panko and milk in a large bowl; stir until well combined. Let stand 5 minutes.
Add turkey, onions, eggs, 1/4 cup ketchup, parsley, mustard, salt, sage, and pepper to breadcrumb mixture. Gently mix until well combined. Transfer mixture to a 9 3/4-inch-by-5 3/4-inch loaf pan. Brush top with remaining 2 tablespoons ketchup
Transfer meatloaf to oven and bake, draining any accumulated juices as necessary, until it reaches 165 degrees on an instant-read thermometer, 1 1/2 to 1 3/4 hours. Serve immediately or use to prepare sandwiches.
Serves 6 people

We did the cutest towels for a bachelorette party this weekend in Florida. Half the towels were pink and white stripe with kelly green embroidery and the others were green and white with hot pink embroidery. This one says ‘Maid of Honor’! They were favors for the girls along with really fun koozies and lots of other goodies. So much fun, wish I was there!
Leda Jackson and I have been friends for almost 10 years. Leda is the founder and designer of Pixie Lily, the most beautiful layette collection on the market. We met in October 2001 when I was exhibiting A. Tierney for the first time at the Javits Center and her Pixie Lily booth was next to mine. We became fast friends and have shared lots of good times over the years.
I knew from day one that her line was exquisite but it was not until last week when I put Pixie Lily on my newborn that I could really appreciate the beauty of it. Simple detailing on the finest fabric is all you need for your baby. It is true luxury and as a new mom it’s all I want to put on my little one.
Next time you need to send a baby gift, check out Pixie Lily. The new mom will thank you.
