Nothing Screams Salacious Sex Like Skirt Steak

Fifty Shades of Skirt Steak…does the recipe even need a name?

So I’m sitting in carpool line minding my own business reading my mom porn, Fifty Shades of Grey when someone knocks on my window to ask me a question about the PTA. Talk about a buzz kill. Excuse me? Yeah, that’s what I said. Mom Porn. Fifty Shades of Grey. Read it yet? You know […]


Let’s Make Some Noise…Sizzling Summer Fajitas

I’ve been decoding my letters from my daughter, Talia to gauge how much fun she’s really having at sleep away camp. The first letter came to her sister, Ryan. It was abundantly loving, leading me to believe she wasn’t having any fun at all. “I miss you soooooooooooooo much and I can’t wait to see […]


Floundering on Dinner…Panko Encusted Flounder

Lately I’ve been floundering on my meals. Just can’t seem to make the right turkey chili in the crock pot. Tossing salads (literally) because I’m not satisfied with the outcome. Botching brownies. Making mediocre meatballs. I need some fresh ideas. And once again it’s 5:53 pm and I’m left with my daily dilemma: what to […]


Spring Chicken

Green may be the new black, small the new big, and pale the new tan, but I’m still trying to figure out who said 30 is the new 40. Because if given the choice, I’d take green, small and pale, but I’d also take 30. Wouldn’t you? I’d just want the knowledge of the years […]


Best. Marinade. Ever.

It’s Monday. Which means there’s no time to do anything. So I’ll cut right to the chase. Marinate that chicken that’s still sitting in your fridge in this stuff and make kabobs. You’ll be everybody’s best friend. No joke. Kick Ass Kabobs *I approximated this at about 1/2 cup for everything liquid…give or take a […]


Savor the Summer Marinade…Grilled Chicken with Apple Honey Marinade

Come every August 1 I’m reminded how short backwards misaligned our sweet little Southern summer really is. Kids in the North are gearing up for session two of camp. Delighted psychoanalysts everywhere are taking their monthly leave of absence to ‘summer’ in the Hamptons, the Cape or any other place that has “The” in front […]


Two Alarm Chicken

Nothing will put a damper on your Labor Day BBQ more than a tornado siren. I’ve actually never heard one before yesterday. But there we were, double fisting tongs and drinks and minding our own business getting ready for our barbecue when it went off. Being the paranoid well-prepared person that I am, I immediately looked […]
