This is the week of chicken! Meaning . . . I’m posting the second chicken recipe of the week. So, two recipes. Never mind. Just how in love with lettuce wraps are you? I forget just how much I dig these funnels o’ life until that first moment of head shoveling. (<–none of those words […]

No that does not say TRAPEZE. But the weird thing is, the little penne pastas kind of look like little trapezes, don’t they? And I didn’t even plan that. THE STARS ALIGN ON THIS GLORIOUS DAWN, Y’ALL. Trapanese pesto is yet another Lidia-inspired recipe. And yes, I’m completely obsessed with her, thanks. I think it’s […]

Yoooooou’re heeeere, there’s NOTHING I FEEEEAAAAR. That was the sound of my face at the end of Titanic (in 3D!) last night as the lights came up in the theater and tears bucketed from my eye sockets and my husband leapt from his seat and ran out of the room as fast as he could. […]
