Back to School Jitters…Cornflake Crumb Chicken

I’ve been unusually anxious over the past few weeks. You know, your typical can’t eat, eat too much, yell too much, stay away from me or you’ll be in time-out for no reason, and just a general feeling of unease. Didn’t quite know what it was until it hit me while watching a Staples commercial […]

End of the Summer Salads…for your next party!

A friend of mine hosted an “End of the Summer Salads” dinner party last week. I was confused at first. Did this mean we were celebrating the salads that sat around all summer and we were going to eat them wilted? Or did it mean we would only be eating salads whose ingredients are available […]

#TrifectaOfSnacks

I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again. Football in our house means one thing and one thing only: good snacks. We have no clue what is going on at any point of the game but we like to have it on and yell and scream as we grab nachos and spinach pies and […]

Fried things cure all guilt.

Festival of Lights…Latkes

Hanukkah. It’s the holiday of lights. Let me say that again. Hanukkah. Chanukkah. Or is it Chanukah? Hanukah? Whatever. It’s the HOLIDAY. OF. LIGHTS. So why does my house look like this? When my neighbors’ houses look like this? If my Jewish guilt wasn’t enough to keep me up at night now I have to […]

Throw this puppy over a rice krispy treat and boom, straight "A"s for the rest of the year.

‘Tis the Season…Peppermint Chocolate Bark

It’s always about this time of the year when I’m faced with the same conundrum. Do I or don’t I donate to the class fund for my kids’ teachers? Now before you label me as insensitive let’s flesh this out. And just for the record, I’m overly generous. But maybe you can help. At the […]

Bowls, Bowls Everywhere

Why is it that food always looks more appetizing when it’s displayed in little bowls? Even food that you wouldn’t normally eat. You should try it sometime with your kids. How many times have they come home from school and automatically run to the fridge to grab the carrots in the bag? Yeah, like never. […]

Hatches are Battened

So apparently there’s a storm a ‘comin to town. And yet, here we are in the city of refuge (Atlanta) and we’re being told to “Batten Down the Hatches.” Some city of refuge. Aside from this, can we discuss why this term is used so much…or at all? That and “Hunkering Down.” Can’t we just […]

Camp Musings from A Soon-to-Be-Recovering Photo Stream Addict

The year is 1985. I am 14. It is June. It is ridiculously hot. I am sent to sleepaway camp against my will. My mom ships me off on the bus. She doesn’t drive me to camp despite my heartfelt and agonizing pleas. In fact, “you’re not even allowed to drive your kid to camp” […]

Ban this. Now.

Not sure why this is still an issue, but apparently, it is. See, there are some words in the English dictionary that should be banned from usage. Banned. Forbidden. Permanently deleted from our vocabularies. Why? Because they’re really, really bad. They sound ridiculous. They imply things you don’t even want to think about them implying. […]

If I Strip for You Will You Strip for Me?

Now there’s a way to get you to read my blog, right? Well before you get your shorts all in a bunch, stay with me for a minute. I’m on a bit of an 80s nostalgia kick. No reason in particular. No, that’s a lie. There are lots of reasons, actually. First of all, my […]

Bring. On. The. Bread.

I don’t know about you, but I’m in the market for some SERIOUS CARBS right now. I’m talking Pasta, Pizza, French Bread, Rye Bread, Bread Crumbs, Bread Pudding, or just good old fashioned White Bread…Southern style…with mayonnaise. Yeah, that’s how desperate I am for this stuff. It’s only been a week but not eating bread […]

Ode to Peeps

A Haiku. Sitting atop the Walgreens shelf, You beg for a squeeze. Marshmallow god.  

Not sure how the Jews had time to harvest this but I won't get into that now.

Which Came First, the Bunny, the Matzah or the Guilt? Roasted Asparagus

Been struggling with blog materials lately (Can you tell? The last post was more than two weeks ago) when it dawned on me that Passover coincides with Easter this year. And while I’m still scouring the shelves to find flour-free products, dodging the bountiful aisles of Peeps and chocolate bunnies because I’m so darn guilt-ridden, […]
