Keepin’ it real in ’08

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 [...]

Whatever You Got Lomein

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 [...]

An Open Letter to the Crazy Cat Lady Down the Street

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. [...]

“I am consistently inconsistent."

I don't own a Polaroid instant camera, and I don't really know anyone who does. In fact, I don't know a single person who doesn't own a digital camera. I saw a lady at the zoo last summer who had a wind up disposable camera, and hubby and I privately mocked her endlessly for the [...]

Letting our freak flags fly.

"Your son is wearing Cars pajamas and snow boots." "So." "In church?" Of all the advice I have gotten in my two short years of parenting, and let me tell you, EVERYONE is always giving advice, it would be to choose your battles. Truer words were never spoken. I am comfortable in this relaxed lifestyle, [...]

Szechwan Shrimp

By |2011-11-16T21:57:07-05:00February 9th, 2008|Recipes|

Lent is upon us, and that means many a meatless Friday. 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 [...]

Everyone relax, I am not peeing on anything today.

I think it's funny that, once I reached a certain age, I can never just be sick anymore, there is always a hint of suspicion. 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 [...]

The Company I Keep

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 Inheritance...You're the best Bunny!Love [...]

60 Easy Minutes to Yum

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 [...]

Because I am better at this than you are.

Why am I in charge of smelling everything?Hubby: Do you think son #1 pooped?Me (cooking dinner): I would have no idea.He then walks up to me, holding said son, and puts his diapered butt in my face. Um, yeah...smells like poop.Hubby: Which one of these is a formula bottle, and which one is a milk [...]
