August is National Goat Cheese Month and we can't think of a better thing to celebrate. Goat cheese has really stolen the scene these days, going from weird and exotic to an ingredient that everyone wants on their plates. We've turned it into a fun version of a lollipop, coating it in pecans. Perfect for tossing on crackers or eating off the stick!
2 ounces goat cheese
2 Tbsp. finely chopped pecans
2 lollipop sticks
Take the goat cheese and roll it into a ball. Stick the lollipop stick into the ball. Roll the ball in pecans to coat. Keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
*Note, this recipe is incredibly easy to double or triple. But only prepare as much as you will need.

I just read an article that sounded – to me at least – like “a canary in a coal mine” or an early warning of danger. This piece, written by Joe Pompeo, appeared in the May 2020 issue of Vanity Fair magazine with the title “The British Tabloid Invasion” and a subtitle that read, “How the Daily Mail is conquering American gossip.”

Apparently the good old U.S. is a nation of “not great” sleepers. Really? And I thought I was the only one! According to a recent study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention it was revealed that one out of three Americans are chronically sleep-deprived. Yikes!

I think we’re all taken by the incredible mystique of the famous French fashion house, Hermès that has been with us for two centuries and is still owned and operated by the same family. From its beginnings in fine equestrian leather goods, they are – in the tumultuous year 2020 – best known for their handbags and many other items.
My image of Hermès has always been rarified products at equally rarified prices so imagine my surprise when I recently received a very stylish publication of theirs in the mail.
