  • Easy Hors d’oeuvres…

    Okay… the Holidays are busy! We still entertain or have to show up with a little something for all the fun gatherings, right? I have a few never fail hors d’oeuvres that are as simple as grabbing a few things at the store and assembling. Okay, one requires a little stove time, but it is SO easy and can double as dinner… perfect if you’re headed to a cocktail party. Leave some home for your kids with the sitter. You just need a pretty tray or bowl for serving… I rounded up a few of those below too!   Jazzed up hummus Store bought hummus Olive Oil Smoked paprika Chips…

  • Winter Coats 2019

    Well, the cold weather has finally arrived in the Northeast and it’s FRIGID! It seemed like a warm winter coat round up was a great post for this week! Some awesome picks in all different price ranges. I am particularly fond of #7, #9 & #11! Stay warm, friends! Please note: A Modern Housewife LLC has affiliate relationships with multiple brands.

  • What To Wear For Thanksgiving 2019

    Thanksgiving is a little over two weeks away! Do you know what you are wearing? I don’t! We are headed to my in-laws this year and despite my propensity to over plan and pack (way) ahead I can barely wrap my head around Thanksgiving being in 2 weeks! I love dressing up a bit for the holiday. We always used to when I was little and it seems like putting on your best clothes honors what a special day it is. Gathering with friends and family, taking a breath and taking note of how much you have to be grateful and thankful for. So here are some ideas of what…

  • Fall Fashion: Leather (Real & Faux)

    While not exactly a new trend, leather is EVERYWHERE and I am in to it! I have been trying to find a pair of leather leggings… do I bite the (very big dollar) bullet and go real or find a great pair of faux… or as I am seeing everywhere “Vegan Leather”. That makes me chuckle for some reason. Upgraded from faux leather? But, it doesn’t stop at just leggings, leather is finding it’s way to t-shirts, skirts, puffer coats (I have one- swoon!), work-out gear, accessories and of course embellishments. Here are some of the items I wouldn’t mind adding to my closet below. (And, yes… there is a…

  • What To Watch…

    Okay, it is finally chilly here! What does that mean? Lots of evenings hunkered down on the couch and binge watching TV… I’m not complaining! Here is our list for Fall TV! Happy viewing! (We stream everything on our Roku… if you are thinking about “cutting the cord” on cable read this post!)   New this Fall… The Affair – Final Season (Showtime- Hulu) – This show is finally answering all the questions in it’s 5th season. If you haven’t watched it at all, its worth it. It gets a little weird sometimes in the middle seasons but it’s well done! Kominsky Method (Netflix) – Second season of this just…

  • October Favorites…

    Happy Halloween! October favorites are here! I think it is because it has been so warm but it still doesn’t really feel like Fall here… I can’t believe tomorrow is November! Yet again this seems to be a list of a lot of books… maybe I should be doing a separate book list! Reading all the time this month! Click on corresponding number to shop item!

  • The Best Little Knit Blazer Styled 3 Ways

    I purchased this little J Crew knit blazer this Spring and adore it! It seems to go with everything, is light enough that I don’t get hot but it also keeps me warm on chilly days. The original pink that I have is sold out in a few sizes but the camel is a great option and available in sizes xxxs-3x; so I will use that color to style the blazer into three different outfits!

  • Tuscan Kale Soup

    So here is my version of Tuscan Soup. I feel like it is all over Pinterest and Instagram right now so I wanted to try my own version of it. Paleo Tuscan Soup… in the Instant Pot! I went the route of making my own sausage (sort of) but you could for sure use store bought (raw) Italian sausage, chicken, turkey or pork, if you don’t have the Primal Palate spices. BUT GET THE SPICES! They are amazing and I also use them in my simple Pork Ragu recipe!  It is SO easy! Tuscan Kale Soup Ingredients: 2 Tablespoons of olive oil 1 Sweet onion chopped 4 Garlic cloves minced…

  • Cocktails: Habanero Harvest

    A warming, spiced and spicy cocktail, sign me up! A simple syrup made with classic Fall flavors and a habanero gives you an earthy and spicy base for this fun Fall drink. Halloween parties, Thanksgiving gathering… or just a Friday night! I went with tequila here because it is my favorite but you could also use mezcal, bourbon, vodka or even a spiced rum! One word of caution, habaneros can be HOT. I first made this allowing the habanero to soak for 15 minutes… good but very spicy. I went back and reduced the time to 5 minutes, but if you like it hot adjust accordingly! The syrup would also…
