One of the things I love about living in New York is that there’s always something new to try.
Someone new to meet.
Somewhere new to go.
As you can imagine, that leaves one with a lot of “first times.”
…like over the weekend, when I walked through Grand Central Station. There’s nothing like feeling like a tourist in my own city to remind me how I never want to become a jaded New Yorker.
There was also the other day where I ordered pecan pie from a restaurant for the first time. I’ve only had pecan pie maybe about three times in my life, but when I saw it on the menu I just knew I had to have a slice as a part of my lunch.
It was a good decision.
Last week I visited Soaked for the first time – a new rooftop bar at the Mondrian. With its gorgeous view and beach-y vibes, I’m pretty sure this was a first I’m pretty sure will lead to seconds, thirds…
Last but not least, on Sunday I made my first batch of brownies…from scratch!
I followed the recipe for Chocolate Caramel Brownies from 101 Gourmet Cookies for Everyone. And they went. Fast.
2 of 101…check.
What “first time” have you had recently?
