ShareAnyone who knows me knows that I am a purple-bleeding, jersey wearing, never-miss-a-game-watching, die hard Ravens fan. But it wasn’t always thus. Growing up, Baltimore was a town without a team. Sure, we had the Orioles, but we were a football town at heart, and in the fall we had nothing but the Redskins and […]

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 […]

ShareI’ve just returned from two weeks away.  My apologies for not writing sooner, but I just wanted to leave it all behind, and, sadly readers, that means you too. Don’t take it personally.  Please? If I tell you about my vacation, will it make you feel better?  No?  Well it’ll make me feel better so […]

ShareMy mom has been working on a project which essentially traces her roots (thus, my roots) back to the Revolutionary War.  Well, really she has us as far back as William the Conqueror.  I have to say I’m a little dubious of that part.  But it’s safe to say that a member of my family […]

ShareI could not get out of my own way today. It was just…one of those. So here I am, posting my planned Cinco de Mayo recipe so late on the fifth that most of you won’t see it until tomorrow anyway. To boot, its pouring rain here. On my way home I passed long lines […]

ShareI spent the entire weekend in complete denial. It was in the high 80’s here in NYC, so I soaked up the sun like a lizard all weekend and wrapped it up with one of my favorite summertime meals: grilled steak fajitas. I normally prefer skirt steak, but by the time I dragged myself out […]

ShareI have a touch of the “Irish flu” today, so naturally I’m craving food that is not way up there on the health-o-meter. Besides, it’s Friday, which means weekend eating is upon us. Hello bar food, my old friend. I haven’t seen you in a whole week! Whenever I’m in this particular state, there is […]
