I have that flu you get when you overextend yourself saying yes to things you have no business saying yes to because you are a foaming-at-the-mouth control monster with a martyrdom fetish. … [Read More...]
You know, before you have kids, you have this grand notion that, despite the homes of all the other "lazy" parents you know, you will not allow your home to morph into a 24 hour romper room?Listen. All I am gonna say is, you can only entertain your kids with book ends and coasters for so … [Read More...]
If there was one meal I know I could throw down with...it would be my mama's meatloaf. Hands down, Bobby Flay, my meatloaf would kick your meatloaf's ass.
This dish kicks ass right out of the oven, and continues it's ass kicking the next day in an amazing meatloaf sandwich. The meat stays moist, … [Read More...]
One of the easiest things I make, is lomein. There is never any rhyme or reason, it's mostly just whatever I have handy. Not only is it a cinch to make, but the recipe makes a lot and it keeps for days!Keep in mind, you can use whatever pasta, veggies, meats, whatever...dump it in, I am sure it … [Read More...]
Listen, I get that you don't really like us. Which is ridiculous, as I am pretty much the most likable person I know. Besides the fact, that I even made you cupcakes when we first moved in, and I am pretty sure the rule is you bake us something to welcome us to the neighborhood. But, whatever. I … [Read More...]

So to jazz up a Lenten dinner that would normally consist of fish sticks and steak fries, I am going to spend the next few Fridays exploring shrimp.
On the menu this week, a spicy little number. While I am always apprehensive of any … [Read More...]

It seems, because I am a woman of childbearing years, any whisper of nausea or flu-like symptoms earns a "tsk, tsk," "wink, wink," and a dramatic head nod toward the womb … [Read More...]
I like to surround myself with the most gorgeous, hilarious, and wicked clever girls around. Plus I naturally gravitate towards any person who uses ellipses as much as I do. Case and point...my darling friend Bunny Mendelbaum. Not gonna lie, I peed my pants a little on this one.Part of my … [Read More...]
I am sure everyone has a version of this dish. It's the easiest thing to make when it's yucky outside, and you are too tired to get all fancy. It's also easy to alter, add in some fresh veggies, or different soup flavors. Here is the version I grew up with, and the "I won't eat anything but … [Read More...]
