In Praise of Nigella

Even though it’s unlikely, I have said that if Nigella Lawson were to do a book signing stop in DC this year, it would make 2010–cancer aside–the best year ever. Since Sara Moulton was dumped from Food Network and they’ve...

moving: what, again!?

Yes… again. The apartment hunt is on, actually has been on for a few months now with not too much to show for it. I’m on the lookout for a 2 bedroom in the Mount Pleasant/Columbia Heights area and pickings...

birthday: gauntlet? thrown!

I suppose this is a technical win, since it’s wishing me a happy birthday and not an early happy birthday, but it’s still a win. Thanks karona! Are the rest of you going to let her get away with that?...

time: like a clock of the heart

Actually, it’s nowhere near that poetic or new romantic. To be honest, I’m ready to see the past year put in the ground. I’m just shy of a week away from my birthday and one gets into a state of reflection…

reality: there’s no whining in fashion!

I don’t watch Project Runway (or any reality shows, they’re a deal-breaker for me) but found the following part of a critique of a recent episode by Tom & Lorenzo–shared by friend J. M. Kincaid–to be both hilarious and appropriate…

facebook: just like Pepperidge Farm

video: my saddle’s waiting!

Sometimes, there’s stuff I have to share, but don’t really have much comment to add. Not quite “presented without comment” but some things speak for themselves.

blog: still here!

Um… surprise hiatus? Yeah, sorry about that, but it’s been a bit of an exhausting few weeks with not much else going on to report.

Ok, not really.

Dry Rubbed Slow Cooker Pulled Pork

It’s funny how things come full circle. Just over a year ago, I was starting to discover and connect with the DC foodie scene. My cooking posts were tossed in with the other things I wrote about in DC and...

ads: Bury my face…

It always amazes me the kinds of ads that show up in the late night hours. I was watching last night’s Look Around You from Cartoon Network’s “Adult Swim” time slot and at the end of the program were the...

Chopper’s Triple Chocolate Mousse Cake

We all have our standby recipes that are, first and foremost, easy. They may also be impressive, but like a well-known commercial illustrates, they really aren’t any trouble at all. And then there are those recipes that may happen to...

home: “Hey you! Pick up that poop!”

Behold, the power of blogging… As you know, things got a little crappy around here with my rant on irresponsible dog owners. On my way home yesterday, it was getting worse as cars had driven through some of the piles...
