This afternoon, as we were talking to our 85 year old grandmother about the logistics of keeping a small dog in her urban apartment, we had an aha moment. When asked how she was planning to potty train her new dog and deal with after dark “walks”, she said she had heard of attractive, affordable environmentally-friendly dog grass patches. This way her new pup could “go” whenever she wanted – day or night, rain or shine. Grandma was right, as usual. DoggieLawn actually delivers an indoor doggy potty right to her front door. Now that she has convinced us she can handle a tiny companion, she just has to convince one of the doggie adoption agencies to approve her application. Continue Reading →

Classic Mint Julep Recipe to Serve at Your Kentucky Derby Party
A few years back we turned on the Today Show to see the smiling face of Al Roker standing at Churchill Downs learning how to make a classic mint julep from Fred Noe, a seventh-generation distiller for Jim Beam. We think this might still be the best Mint Julep Recipe out there and we must admit, since then, we have spent many, many hours testing lots of other recipes. 🙂
.Here is the Mint Julep Recipe as seen on the Today Show:
- 1 part simple syrup
- 2 parts Bourbon
- Add crushed ice
- The most important part is the mint – first spank the mint and then add it to the mint julep cups
- Top your mint julep off with more crushed ice
- Hint (not on the video): An extra-nice touch is to trim straws so they just slightly stick out of the cup. Hence, when guests sip from the short straws, their noses will be close to the refreshing mint garnish.
