ShareIf you’re like me, you’ve been to a million and one showers for one reason or another.  By now I think the women in my life must be the cleanest folk on the planet (ba dum dum).  While I’m always so happy for the showeree, I have to say that after a while they all […]

ShareI am an hors d’oeuvres junkie. My favorite kind of parties are cocktail parties, and not just because of the copious amounts of booze. That’s right, folks, I’m the girl who follows the food passers around eating all the nibbles off their trays. I’ve even been known to stand strategically near the kitchen doors so […]

ShareWhy is it that famous people always seem surprised when they’re caught cheating?  Are they too wrapped up in their own ego to notice the millions of photographers following their every move?  Too busy doing whatever it is that makes them famous to read the frequent articles written about them?  And why is it always […]

ShareMy grandmother’s next door neighbor was the broccoli doctor.  You know, the doctor who discovered in the 80’s that broccoli was a great cancer fighter. At least, that’s what she told us.  He was a cancer research specialist at Johns Hopkins, which was just a few miles down the road. At the time, I was […]

ShareFall always makes me nostalgic. The crisp air, the golden light, the crunching leaves. Kids getting back into the swing of things at school, Halloween plans. I always crave that “back to school” feeling, though in truth I’m so glad I never have to think about cramming for another exam or going to an extra-boring […]

ShareI got back late last night from a week in the UK. Before leaving, I was lamenting the end of summer and not quite ready to embrace all of fall’s bounty. No more, my friends. After a long weekend in the English countryside, hiking through hilly towns and pastures of grazing cows and sheep, in […]

ShareThere is something so homey and comforting and simple about ratatoullie.  It makes me nostalgic for the French grandmother I didn’t actually have (but if I had had one, she would have made me ratatoullie.  I just know it).  Ratatoullie has that certain je ne se qois; a sense of place  even when eaten far […]

ShareWhat is it about curry that strikes fear in the hearts of so many meat and potatoes Americans? Just the mention of it makes my father get twitchy and start looking for the exit. I think perhaps people just assume that curry is synonymous with thick, heavy, saucy, coconut-y dishes that smell vaguely like a […]

ShareI know, people. It’s supposed to be an apple a day. But this colorful (not to mention lovely) little side dish is a surefire way to eat healthy without even realizing it. Chock full of fresh veggies, its a simple way to use up leftover garden delights. I’m trying to squeeze as much out of […]

ShareI keep forgetting that it’s still bathing suit season.  I always feel like there’s so much build up in May and early June and then by the time Independence Day comes around, the bathing suit eating is out the back door and I’m back to body by Bud.  I’m one of those people who just […]
