Trick or Treat, Smell My Feet, Give me Something Good to Eat!

Happy Halloween, readers! This Halloween marks the one year anniversary of my being a home owner (not to mention the owner of a fabulous kitchen). But even before this monumental occasion, Halloween has always been one of my favorite holidays. We’re celebrating with scary movies (have you seen Saw 3D yet??), costume parties (major kudos […]

I Like Funny

I love to discover quirky fun products that nobody else has thought of, but that also serve a purpose. When I first came across Fred & Friends, I immediately fell in love with their sense of humor and how they’ve incorporated hilarity into everyday needs. But what really caught my attention was how many fun […]

My Big Fat Greek Dinner

Given that I’ve been out of town for a week, and my road warrior husband is still working his way home, it appears the cooking project is on a brief hiatus and the restaurant reviews continue. Last night I met a few of my closest 110 friends at a local Greek restaurant – Kostas Cafe – to […]

All That It’s Cracked Up to Be?

One year for Christmas, Ben and I received a book called “1,000 Places to See Before You Die.” Listed among the 1,000 is Beth’s Cafe in Seattle. On our way into town, our shuttle driver pointed out places along the way that we should know about – Beth’s Cafe, he said, was a must. Known […]

Anything This Good Seems a Little Fishy

Anyone remember back when Saturday Night Live was funny? I mean really funny. Back in the days of Mr. Robinson’s Neighborhood and “Land Shark!” and “What do you all want for nuthin’? A rrrrrrubber biscuit?” I loved those guys, and I pity anyone who came after them, because nobody could possibly live up to that […]

Are You Sinking What I’m Sinking?

So I know I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again… I am a HUGE fan of the Pioneer Woman. Between her delicious recipes, helpful Photoshop tips and her gorgeous photography, not to mention her hilarious wit as she recounts her tales of life on a ranch, I’m constantly entertained and secretly want to […]

Believe It…Or Don’t!

My inner child is calling out for some fun, so let’s play a game I like to call, “Believe It…Or Don’t!” I’ll show you photos of food, and you tell me what they have in common. Ready? Here we go!      Any ideas yet? Here’s a hint: the answer is NOT “foods that are bad […]

Sesame Mucho

Every Christmas, my family does an amazing job of finding gifts that combine two things that totally don’t go together, yet ultimately result in a completely awesome gift. Case in point: my figurine of a sock monkey dressed as WonderWoman. Bizarre? Maybe. Suh-weet? And how! So I ask you. Love the Beatles? Love food? Then this […]

And the “Husband of the Year” Award Goes to…

So, I don’t mean to brag, but I think you all should know that I’m married to a pretty awesome guy. Like, amazingly awesome. So awesome, in fact, that his most recent victory warrants its very own post on this quiet little website. Are you ready? The other night, my husband…   (washed the dishes? […]

A Lonely Little Petunia in an Onion Patch

[Audio clip: view full post to listen] “Good stuff.  Eric’s got a problem with croutons (don’t ask, I don’t get it), so he’s got something of a problem with the soup.  Actually, now that you mention it, I guess I can understand not liking soggy bread in your soup.  But it’s soggy with onions, so […]
