I clearly cannot let go of Mardi Gras. I promise you one day that I will be there.
This is not to say that I have neverÂ visitedÂ NOLA. We stopped by during a more ambiguous time of year for a wedding.
Two things are for certain:
1. I would gain the weight of two […]Continue Reading →
I haven’t created a savory recipe for some time, so with the Superbowl around the corner right nowÂ is as good a time as any. Of course it has to be hearty enough for real and regular football viewers to want to eat.
I have seen enough football-shaped food. Don’t get me wrong, I love […]Continue Reading →
Five days into the new year. I hope you are all still sticking to your resolutions.
I try to be a realist (i.e., cynical and negative. whatever.) and skip ahead to where I no longer stick to the resolution.

Okay, soÂ a beer cupcakeÂ sounds strange. I know, I know.Â I can just see it now, you people in your so-called forums. “Oh that sounds gross,” or, “I don’t know if that would be good.” Well, don’t knock itÂ ’til you’ve tried it.
Let me just say I haveÂ a special friend who is possibly the pickiest eater I […]Continue Reading →
Sometimes I have too much going on. Where there are not nearly enough hours in the day, and I sort of haveÂ a hard time saying no to more.
“I would LOVE to meet up for dinner/cocktails/whatever!”
