Curried Sweet Potato & Carrot Latkes

Happy Wednesday! I’m back in NYC. It was an amazing weekend back home in Ohio. (Minus the Cheesecake Factory!)

Do you ever wake up, and are just craving something oddly particular toContinue reading Peach-Nana Swirl (N)Ice Cream

International Women’s Day…

Well, last week was apparently International Women’s Day. I hope you can hear the dripping sarcasm in that last sentence. Does anyone else throw up a little bit in their mouth when, come March 8, social media turns into an estrogen fest of caustic female pride? I mean, double standard much?

The Bachelor Finale & The Disappearing Line of Decency

Just when you think you’ve seen it all, leave it to The Bachelor to pull an Emeril Lagasse and “Bam! Kick it up a knotch!” In case you haven’t heard, The Bachelor season finale was on Monday and Tuesday of this past week. And…wow. Just…W O W.
