Back when I was a kid we’d watch Blossom and the Fresh Prince of Bel Air on Monday nights. Fast forward a billion years and I’m watching PBS cooking shows and the local news. Where did the time go? Why am I almost 35? Wait, is that a JOWL I SEE? Someone will pay. *send […]
It’s Oscar night! The red carpet is littered with the rich and famous, dressed to the nine in the finest gowns and tuxes. I look pretty good, too. I’m lounged on my red sofa, wearing some designer (read: tattered) yoga pants from 1997, and my hair is in a most elegant (read: ratty) low bun […]
A little five-spice for dinner tonight. Any idea what’s on the menu?
Yesterday morning Aaron woke up really craving some “man food.” He wanted steak, potatoes and broccoli. “Awesome! Take over!” I told him.

With resources running low and the energy level of a postal stamp, I needed to pull together something creative, quick and tasty. Hello pantry. Canned beans, tomatoes and […]
What? What white stuff all over the roads and yards and sidewalks? What fluffy substance dancing in the air slowly making its way to the ground? What white-knuckled drive to work 8 hours from now? I have NO idea what you’re talking about. Seriously, is there a petition we can sign? Chicken Stir-Fry With Bean […]
It happens every year about this time. We have a few 70-degree days and the gun is jumped. Tank tops are re-introduced to pale skin, chaco sandals are thrown on, the pony-tail is back in action. And then it’s over. Just like that. The temperature drops and all hopes and dreams of a new life […]
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. My heart belongs to tacos. Okay, tacos and Aaron. I mean Aaron and tacos. Taron and Aacos. This is called “having issues.” Fish Tacos: What it took for 2: * 4 frozen tilapia filets, thawed, pat dry and cut into 1/2-inch sticks * ½ an onion, […]
