If you are anything like me, you over-bought for Thanksgiving in a bewildering way. I managed to shop for carrots and celery twice when my sister had asked me only to make on tray of stuffing (which only requires one cup of diced celery) none of which required carrots. I did have a serious stomach bug issue […]

  With winter around the corner. It’s time to roll out warm meals. The best part of this time of year is great comfort foods. One thing that never grows old is the fact that you can take something simple and traditional, and switch it up. One of my favorite things in the word is […]

Happy September! In just six days I will have crept a definite step closer to the big 3-Oh! Whatever. It’s 28. Who’s scared? Not I. I see it as an excuse to have my friends come over and hang out, eat good food, drink and enjoy each other’s company. I have yet to figure out when people are […]

One thing that I am frequently surprised about: how much I enjoy eating a fresh tomato. This seems like no crazy ordeal, for sure. But had you met me over a decade ago and suggested I chop up a nice fresh tomato and toss a piece in my mouth, I would tell you that you must be […]
