Oprah Would Love Rudi's Organic Cinnamon Raisin Bread

Oprah loves bread.  We do, too...but in moderation. When we get that carb craving we reach for a slice of Rudi's Organic Bakery, which are about as healthy and wholesome as bread can get. Rudi's has been baking small batch breads for over thirty-five years and is the leading producer of certified organic breads in the U.S., but Everything She Wants was recently introduced to the brand at an Editor's Showcase in New York City.

Rudi's graciously sent us a several loaves of its yummy Cinnamon Raisin Bread, with 15 grams of whole grains and loaded with plenty of plump organic raisins and organic sunflower seeds in each slice.

The bread makes a delish sweet and savory snack anytime of the day. We love our slice slathered with crunchy organic almond butter. Rudi's raisin bread makes great sandwiches and French toast, too.

Check out this fun recipe.

Conway Discount Clothing Chain Closing in New York City

It's the end of an era. Conway discount stores are closing . As of this weekend, a sign on the sole Herald Square location (34th Street btwn 7th and 8th Ave) says the store will close in "7 Days." Before I relocated to New York City, I was introduced to the discount chain while on a bus trip from Baltimore.  I recall the first time I saw Conway's signature pink bags carried by hurried shoppers in midtown. And Miss Foster, the trip organizer and a bargain hunter from way back, took me to the store for the first time. Conway store in the Fulton Mall./Tracy E. Hopkins When I moved here in 1994, my love affair with Conway continued.  I furnished my first apartment with discount knick-knacks and home goods from the store.  And much to my chagrin, in hindsight, I curated most of my wardrobe for my first full-time job from the long-shuttered 42nd Street and Third Avenue store. One regretful ensemble: Lime green and white checkered pants with a matching lime green
