Ok, we can't resist any longer. We have to share something pumpkin-flavored and delicious. Instead of going with a latte or some sort of baked goodie, we went with homemade marshmallows. Once you try a homemade marshmallow, you'll never go back. This version, sprinkled with a bit of pumpkin spice, is to die for!
Mix the gelatin and 1/2 cup cold water in the bowl of an electric mixer with the whisk attachment.
While that sits, combine sugar, corn syrup, 4 tsp. of pumpkin spice and 1/2 cup of water in a small saucepan and cook over medium heat until the sugar dissolves. Turn the heat to high and cook until the mixture reaches 240 degrees on a candy thermometer. Remove from heat. With the mixer on low, slowly pour the syrup into the gelatin. Turn the mixer to high and whip 15 minutes until very thick. Combine powdered sugar with remaining pumpkin spice. Dust half the mixture onto an 8 by 12 inch glass baking dish. Pour the marshmallow mixture into the pan and smooth out the top. Dust the top with the remaining spice mixture.
Leave the mixture out, uncovered, for at least 12 hours. Turn out onto a cutting board and slice.
Makes approximately 2 dozen marshmallows, depending on how large you choose to cut them.

After reading about Dolce & Gabbana’s new shop at 155 Mercer Street in Manhattan’s SoHo, I decided to pay a visit to see these digs for myself. On Friday, August 17th when it was close to 90 degrees F. I took the Downtown #6 subway and got off at Spring Street (a 10-minute trip). This left me at Spring/Lafayette and from there I walked west to Mercer where I crossed the street and took a short walk to 155 – all told a fairly easy jaunt.
There is something fun about watching the designer's vision on the runway. Yes, not all of the looks are practical, but it helps to bring what once were drawings and ideas to life. That part of the creative process is interesting to me. When it comes to street style, I have grown to appreciate this fashion scene.
Like every female over the age of ten in America, I know that Manolo Blahnik designs and makes fabulous shoes for women. Full disclosure: I hate shoes and would go barefoot down Fifth Avenue if I dared. I opt for black, simple, utilitarian, low-heeled shoes that do not have the word “pain” written all over them. But, most important: can I walk for miles in them? In Manhattan we all walk everywhere.
We use Italian lingerie sizing for our bodywear and items tend to run small.
Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.
