Surprise! I’m back in Ohio. I just managed to sneak out during this massive blizzard in NYC, because I had an important audition back home. You know what I did last night? Watched Notting Hill. Yes yes, the classic 90’s chick flick with Hugh Grant and Julia Roberts. I had never seen it. And itContinue reading Dignity
This… is Operation Blizzard Food, people. In case you haven’t heard, NYC is expecting 11-15 inches of snow today. CRAZY, right? Nothing like a blanket of snow to usher in the first day of spring! But the snow is really coming down outside, and I am cozy and warm, snuggled under a blanket with the candlesContinue reading Grain Free Caramelized Onion & Gruyere Sandwich!
We’re in the home stretch of Lent. Easter is less than two weeks away. And if you’re anything like me, then maybe you’ve slipped up a time or two – or twenty – on what you’ve “given up” for Lent.

Do you ever wake up, and are just craving something oddly particular toContinue reading Peach-Nana Swirl (N)Ice Cream
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? Honestly, I walk aroundContinue reading International Women’s Day…
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. It was a dumpster fire of everything wrongContinue reading The Bachelor Finale & The Disappearing Line of Decency
OK, so is anyone else reeling after Monday and Tuesday’s Bachelor dumpster fire finale?! I mean…wow. W O W. Let me know if you want me to do a post on it tomorrow. Anywho, it’s Wednesday. And I’m hunkered down in my apartment, wearing my favorite puffy down slippers, with the snow absolutely pummeling the streetsContinue reading Chilean Sea Bass with Mango Salsa
Well hey there, hi there, ho there! I am so excited to share tonight’s post with you 🙂 All day yesterday, it took every ounce of will power not to blurt out the news, and wait until post-time tonight. Late last year, I was invited to become a contributor to WINE publication. It is aContinue reading The Nails
