Say Hello (and then goodbye!) to Fall…Pea Shoots, Apples and Cheese Salad

Ohh. Feels like fall! So, quick! Before it regresses back to 95 degrees in the shade, run, don’t walk to the nearest grocery store and stock up on pumpkins, bales of hay, cranberries, cinnamon sticks, and anything else that will get you feeling crispy!! Oh how I love, love, love fall! But alas, I know […]

Why Parents Should Play More Video Games…Greek Pasta Salad

Every year I say I won’t do it. But then I do it anyway. Overschedule my kids. Are you the same? It all starts like this: A simple game of Tetris. My life. Probably your life, too. Just as you’re tossing your last dive stick into the pool and squeezing the chlorine out of your […]

I Wont Offend You by Posting a Picture…or a Recipe

So here’s one that’ll kill any dinnertime mood. COCKROACH. BIG.  FAT. GET THE HELL OUT OF MY #*$***S$%@ HO– USE COCKROACH. I HATE HATE HATE these things. They are rude. They are intrusive. They are freaking scary looking. And they have NO PLACE IN MY KITCHEN let alone my life. So what do I do? […]

Chaos In the Clouds

The airlines have it all wrong. They should pay me to fly. I think I’ll write a letter. After all, I check myself in, I carry my own bags, I bring my own snacks and I even clean the plane. Yeah, I’ve become one of those OCD people who brings Clorox wipes and scrubs the […]

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

Been struggling with blog materials lately (can you tell? last post was more than two weeks ago) when it dawned on me that Passover coincides with Easter this year, almost to the day. 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 […]

Breaking News! One Flake Has Fallen!

Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving. Had some turkey, spent quality time with the relatives, blah, blah, blah….they’re predicting snow tomorrow so get ready for a: No Snow Snow Day (this is a link to a previous recipe because I’m too lazy to come up with a new entry)   I’m recycling this post because I […]

Some Follow-Up

As much as I’d like to say the birthday party went off without a hitch, well, there were a few snafus. Let’s just say that having your eight-year-old in charge of the main activity for 15 little girls was about as frustrating as putting together an IKEA Bjorkin desk with sixteen drawers and extra parts. […]

My Apologies for Yesterday’s Post

It was just so wrong of me to leave that last post up for so long. The ‘incident’ with the Windex and the shoes really threw me for a loop . My apologies. There is no place for bugs in a food blog. So it won’t happen again. But I don’t have much to say […]

California Dreamin’

I’ve been on a cooking hiatus for a few weeks because I haven’t been in my kitchen. It’s easy to go on a cooking hiatus in Southern California because anywhere you turn you can find amazing food. Fresh…everything. Vegetables. Fruit. Sushi. Ice Cream. Attitude. So I’ll just call my cooking hiatus R&D to make myself […]
