This is a bittersweet moment for me. This will be my final post on {tear}.

After much consideration, I finally bit the bullet and bought my own domain! While I am thrilled about my new site, I cannot help but feel sad for abandoning my old one.

I have turned off the comments on this blog and my profile has a new address.

You can now get your daily mojito fix at:

It has been a fun ride and it is only going to get better! I would love it if you would join me!


Mojito Maven

fast & furious

Is it bad that after Easter brunch Mr. Mojito and I went to see the new Fast & Furious movie and that I actually liked it? I am going to blame my inner teenager who still has a crush on Paul Walker.

It is not exactly your typical Easter Sunday movie, but whatever. I think even JC would appreciate the action and cars.

P.S. For those that asked, I did try the gelfite fish, and it was, in fact, disgusting.

gelfite fish

Tonight I am celebrating Passover with Mr. Mojito’s family. One of the traditions of Passover is to eat gelfite fish during the Seder.

What is gelfite fish?

It is a disgusting fish patty sold in glass jars and packed in jelly made from fish broth.

In traditional recipes for gefilte fish, the fish is first deboned. Next, the fish is ground together with eggs, onions, flour, and matzoh meal or challah until it is a fine paste. The paste is then stuffed into the skin of the deboned fish, giving it the name gefilte or “stuffed”. The whole stuffed fish is then boiled with carrots and onions.

Wait, that does not sound appealing to you? Do not worry, it sounds revolting to me too.

My husband swears that gelfite fish is really good. I am going to have to disagree.

luann has a blog?

Count-less LuAnn de Lesseps is never one to disappoint. Ever.

First we have the privilege of watching her weekly on the RHNYC. Next, if we need a refresher course on class and manners we can refer to her book, Class with the Countess, as a useful resource. AND now she is offering her wisdom on her blog!

I assure you I am not kidding. Run, do not walk, over there right now to see it! I am sure each of you are hitting your 'Refresh' button waiting for her next update.

She actually discusses the ending of her marriage and also leaves us with a helpful piece of advice when dealing with relationships:

Tip: When a man breaks up with you, be as noble and dignified as you can. Realize that better times are ahead and that the future holds many wonderful opportunities. Sometimes a break-up is a blessing in disguise.

Did you find this advice useful? Well you are in luck because at the end of each blog post LuAnn provides a tip that all well-mannered and classy people should follow.

A HUGE thank you to Sarah for pointing out this little gem!! It made my day. I owe you.
