Hi, I'm Rachel.

A few years ago I could barely boil water.

True story.

Determined to be a kick ass wife, I developed a love for football and learned to cook in my tiny Jersey City kitchen. I spend my days working in Manhattan, my nights and weekends chasing after a rambunctious toddler, and the hours in between cooking with my husband and feeding my TV habit...oh, and I blog about it all!

I need a new show


On Friday, we are leaving for Aruba. Typically, the evenings are spent at dinner with the family, and then relaxing in our hotel room, especially now that we have Penelope in tow. Since TV options are not abundant down there, we typically bring some DVDs and a portable DVD player to use in the evenings before bed. It's a bit of a tradition that Shaun and I choose a new TV show to start watching while we are there. In past years, we've started The Walking Dead and Justified - both of which went on to become absolute must-see TV for us. This year, I don't have anything in the pipeline. I'm considering Suits, but I'd love to hear your recommendations. My only criteria is that is must be great TV and available on DVD so that I can bring it with us!

Also, here are shows we have already watched/are currently watching:

Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones, Justified, Sons of Anarchy, The Walking Dead, Dexter, Boardwalk Empire, Outlander, The Jinx, Girls, True Detective, Shameless, Modern Family, How I Met Your Mother...and probably a ton more that I can't recall.


And so with that...what would you recommend that we watch?

I have only seen the first season of "Suits." I really like it and decided that it would be one of the shows I save for retirement. I think you would really like it.

Have you watched "Catastrophe" yet? Don't think it's on DVD but Maggie and I have started watching it.

I'm am the worst TV watcher ever, but of those shows, I LOVED How I Met Your Mother and Dexter. Modern Family is super fun, too! I really want to watch The Jinx. Your selection is so diverse :)

I don't know if the first season is available on DVD yet, but my husband and I love watching Turn together. (AMC drama about a revolutionary war spy ring)

Scandal (I feel like you've definitely watched before, though), Mad Men, Weeds is always a good one if you haven't watched yet, Friday Night Lights, and Rescue Me is one of my favs.
