So I’ve been mentally packing for my trip this week. One of the items I was giddily going to include was my new pair of cream Sperry Topsiders. Then the darkness set in: a cruel trick from Mother Nature, a plot against me in my desire to wear warm weather footwear. I tell you what, […]

I always forget how much I appreciate a big salad for dinner. They tend to be a lunchtime staple for me, and so often the idea of coming home after a long day to a plate of lettuce leafs lacks a bit of satisfaction appeal. Plus, it’s winter. We are supposed to be craving starches […]
