If you read my book, you know I spent my summer after college working at an all-girls summer camp.  Of the many magical things to come from that experience, one of the more profound was the involuntary twitch I get while watching people eat Ranch dressing.  Every week ushered in a new group of girls, [...]

"Our kids are going to be so cultured." We giggled in bed, thinking about the wildly different lives our children would lead, compared to our fried bologna childhoods.  Indian, Lebansese, Ethiopian, sushi, seafood... we were idiots.  You know why you feed kids chicken fingers? It's cheap and yummy.  You know what's not cheap? An 8 [...]

Mashed & Cheesy Cauliflower

If you came here looking to finally find that mashed cauliflower recipe that tastes just like mashed potatoes, I have bad news for you.  Cauliflower will never be a potato.  Like, ever.  For many reasons, let's take a look at them.  First, potatoes don't smell like farts, so right off that bat, a huge difference.  [...]

And don't get me started on dark chocolate or rye bread.  I sometimes envision myself as some eccentric old crone, living in a yellow house, listening [...]

Heads up, this post contains two Amazon affiliate links, and as a an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases. Last Christmas, my mother-in-law bought me an air fryer. I'd heard of them, since much like Instant Pots, they were making the rounds as the next hipster Pinterest appliance, but owning one was never really [...]

Cucumber Tomato Bacon Goat Cheese Salad

Raindrops on roses, and whiskers on kittens... Okay first of all, nobody loves whiskers on kittens, that's insane. Are kittens cute? Yes. Is it because of the coarse wires jutting out of their cheek fat? Um, no. If I rewrote the song, My Favorite Things, today, it'd be about goat cheese and taking my jeans [...]
