It could be the 1950s housewife in me, but I love to dress up when I cook, especially when hosting. Over the weekend I hosted my dear friends Richard and Simon of Quill & Tine who admired my Ann Taylor and Robert Rodriguez outfit just as much as the meal I made them. They gave me extra props for getting decked out to be in front of the stove. Our discussion of “juggling it all” lead to their question: “Gracie, do you ever sleep?”
Sleep? Me? “Not really!” was my truthful answer. With a full-time job by day, full-time blog by night, I’m a busy girl with a crazy schedule to keep up with. Needless to say, I basically have an IV drip filled with coffee attached to me at all times. Well, not really, but with the amount of free time I have in a day, I need my coffees fast so I can go go go!
My latest kitchen discovery is the Keurig and Folgers Gourmet Selections K-cups. Why do I love it? Because it makes a fresh cup of Folgers coffee in 30 seconds, which means it’s a machine that’s approved for the Gracie Carroll lifestyle.
Another huge perk – and I’m sure every hostess out there will agree – is that with so many varying coffee and tea varieties, you can quickly satisfy each and every one of your guests. Folgers has even introduced a new Gourmet Selections K-cups flavour, Mocha Swirl, for those coffee lovers with a bit of a sweet tooth!
These shots actually remind me of Ann Taylor‘s latest campaign featuring the gorgeous Kate Hudson. It really epitomizes the modern woman who juggles every aspect of her busy life, and looks good while doing it.
