ShareWhen I was a sophomore in college, I had to get my tonsils and adenoids removed. At the same time, I also had holes poked into my sinus pockets so they would drain more efficiently. All of this happened over Christmas break, and though the doctor said it would be only about 3-4 days until […]

ShareWhen I was in 8th grade I cheated in Latin class. We had to hand in our homework and I convinced a friend to let me copy hers because I, shockingly, wasn’t exactly prepared. Strangely enough, we had the exact same wrong answers. Busted. I also, on occasion, would try to sneak a peek at […]

ShareAs a kid, I’d get to request at least one meal per week.  Mom would sit at the kitchen table on Sunday, pen and paper in hand, and ask everyone what they wanted for dinner over the next five days.  It usually didn’t go that well. Asking on Sunday what someone wants to eat on […]

ShareOne of the last lines of one of the greatest movies ever made goes a little something like this: “Remember, Red, hope is a good thing.  Maybe the best of things.  And no good thing ever dies.” Andy Dufrense writes that to his friend Red from Mexico, prompting Red to break his parole and head […]

ShareSince my last post I’ve done a rather large overhaul on our pantry and our fridge. So far, so good; we’ve been able to eat mostly whole foods and from scratch meals, aside from two nights when we were out (see my comment about not being too nuts about the resolution). In my excitement (ok, […]

ShareThis morning started out like any other morning. Several “snooze” sessions, my best Oscar the Grouch impersonation, and a large cup of coffee. Until I looked out the window. After several days of much needed, heavy rain, the skies over Long Island dawned clear, cool, and heart-breakingly blue. The perfect day to be out in […]

ShareGuess what happens when you go away for two weeks and leave your already neglected  and overgrown property to fend for itself?  It gets even more neglected and overgrown.  Oh, and it hates you when you get home. The previous owners of our house had moved on two years before we bought it.  During that […]

ShareI’m in a fight with my stove.  We aren’t speaking at present.  The problem? The bitch is electric. Most food people would agree that gas is great. Gas is king.  Electric is for “cooks” who want easy cleanup and are afraid of fire. Not me! Not me! I love fire.  I would have been queen […]

ShareMy father is not a cook.  Let’s get this straight right away.  He is a great many wonderful things, but as far as cooking goes, it’s toast and delivery pizza (and the toast thing is extremely rare, though he’s been doing pretty well on the grill, of late).  My mother buys pre-cut Cracker Barrel cheese […]

ShareI wax poetic (maybe that’s a stretch) about New York City a lot on this blog.  It truly is a dynamic and interesting place to live.  But there are several things that I’ll not miss when we leave.  Given that I’m feeling a little conflicted about the move to the ‘burbs, I figured I’d start […]
