I know it’s 100 degrees out. I know it’s mid-June. I know the staple outfit these days is a bikini. I know most of you are firing up your grill tonight. I know. I still wanted soup for dinner. It’s my kitchen, I can soup if I want to. Yeah, that only sort of works, […]

Basil-y Grilled Salmon with Cucumbers and Potatoes

Today I went the extra mile to prove to my husband that I do in fact love him. We went, and I’m not kidding, to the Street League Skateboarding Championship at the Sprint Center. Skateboarding. Let me remind you, I’m FEMALE. AND 34. In the 15,000 people that attended, there was only 1 other female, […]

So I’m approximately 32 episodes into “Take Home Chef” with Curtis Stone and I have one thing to say. YOWZA. I’d SO be okay with taking him home for an afternoon. I mean have you seen his hair? Heard that nervous Aussie giggle? Experienced that smile? Those arms? I MEAN UHHHHHH, I’d LOVE to just […]

If there is one thing in life that is absolutely certain, it is that fish + wine + saffron + garlic + tomatoes = a love like none other. Remember the feeling you got when you stared for hours on end at Joey McIntyre on your New Kids On The Block poster? This is going […]

Aaaah, tonight’s dinner takes me back. It reminds me of my mid-twenties when I spent some time in Greece. (I’ve never been to Greece.) Back when I was eagerly studying multiple foreign languages abroad. (Yeah, that never happened either.) Back when I spent all of my free time with Jamie Oliver galavanting along the pebbly […]

A Snow Poem

A blanket of white covers the city. I still had to work, oh what a pity. The heater and fireplace will work on overdrive. A 1 million dollar heating bill just to survive. I’m really okay with the snow, as long as I’m inside. Put me behind the wheel and I’ll immediately go blind. I’m […]

  We have less than three weeks until Christmas. Did you know that? Are you done shopping? Is everything wrapped? Is your tree up? Are all your travel plans set in stone? Do you have to ship anything this year? Have you planned the Christmas menu? Why was Tumblr down so long? Am I stressing […]

The Sole of the Matter

When I was a little kid I attempted to eat the ever so popular Fruit Roll Up as a snack. I also made my sister Barbara eat dirt from a small garden hose as a snack, but that’s beside the point. I also threw locust shells on her once while she was bathing, but again, […]
