The airlines have it all wrong. They should pay me to fly. I think I’ll write a letter. After all, I check myself in, I carry my own bags, I bring my own snacks and I even clean the plane. Yeah, I’ve become one of those OCD people who brings Clorox wipes and scrubs the […]

Poach This

To know me is to know that I’ll pretty much do anything for you. Need a kid picked up or dropped off when you’re in a bind? Just ask. Don’t have a place to go for the holidays? Door’s open and food’s a plenty. Having a mommy meltdown? Let’s go for a drink. But poach […]

Nomadic Musings

Being a freelancer is a bit like being a nomad in the desert. You’re always wandering around setting up your tent, working on all kinds of projects with all sorts of interesting (feel free to interpret liberally) people until the job is done, and then you move on. You’re also a bit of a chameleon, […]

Card Me

As in "Hey Girl! I've got four kids and you're still single!" Ha ha!

I’m not a card-carrying member of much but I do carry a lot of cards. Mostly in the form of Nordstrom, American Express, Starbucks and Jersey Mike’s (one more sub and I get a free sandwich!). Flaunting my membership affiliations isn’t something I typically do (save the occasional single school magnet) so I’m always a […]

Alphabet nutella on white

… as in ‘C’rap, I have no idea what’s for dinner. And ‘C’lutter, since that’s all I see. A daily occurrence, really. It usually hits right around 4 pm when everyone descends upon me. And, unlike my other friends, I haven’t done my grocery shopping for the week because I still have a city mentality […]

A Mother’s Day Thought

Since this is both a cooking and a parenting blog I should probably offer something up for Mother’s Day. Okay. My hope is that I’ll be doing neither on Sunday (cooking nor parenting). My cooking recommendations are as follows: Breakfast: The Four Seasons Mid-morning snack: Haagen Dazs Lunch: The Ritz Carlton Afternoon Snack: Payard Dinner: Daniel And one last before […]

Sorry. I lied on yesterday’s post. You don’t have the recipe for the yummy chicken burgers. My bad. So how in the world are you going to be able to celebrate your {insert type of pride} pride without the chicken burger recipe? You can’t. It’s impossible. So, here it is. Happy BBQing. *Note* this does […]

Break Out Your Pride

Break Out Your Pride

Since historical events usually happen in threes, I’m waiting for one more to be announced. We’ve already celebrated the Royal wedding ad nauseam and now Osama Bin Laden is dead. Hard to top the last one but am hoping the third will have something to do with backass Georgia finally agreeing to sell alcohol on […]

Trying to reinvent recipes you’ve cooked for years is not an easy task. But if you’re someone who gets bored easily (read: me) with food (subtext: routine, life, work, etc…) it’s up to you to find ways to bring those recipes back to life. Sometimes it works organically and you get divine inspiration to make […]
