Life of Brian: Bugs

To be clear: I do not like bugs. I do not hate bugs. I do not fear bugs. I respect bugs. Growing up in the suburbs, they were everywhere. And I’m using “bugs” as the blanket term for all creepy...

Nigella’s Cozy Kitchen

In what I’m sure is a promotional move for her latest cookbook, Nigella Lawson has penned a short article for the Wall Street Journal on her essential cozy kitchen. ‘Kitchen’ is probably one of the most evocative words in the...

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.

moving: all done!

Well… almost. As I stepped out of the shower today, I realized that I didn’t have my bathrobe… which is still hanging on the 3M hook on the back of the bathroom door at my old apartment. Hello, after-work errand!*...

food: a “new” classic roast chicken

As much as I rant and rave about how Food Network–and most televised food shows, really–has lost their way, it can still be very dangerous for me to watch it on an early weekend morning. Even though her new series...

food: for the shorties

After a long day at the office, it’s rather nice to know you’ve got a good comforting meal awaiting you. This recipe for BBQ Beef Short Ribs done in the crock-pot is my equivalent of coming home to an easy...

food: I’m in love!

So ok, I’m not making a big fuss about today, really… I’m not. I was happy to chill out at home, enjoying the weekend and doing some chores, no big deal. Mo’Bo*, however, had other ideas and decided to make...

food: wings, ’nuff said

So I bought a bunch of wings for the Superbowl, I figured I might watch it or not, but at least I’d have an appropriate snack either way. Since that day was in the 50s, I was out all day...

food: a tasty trilogy

It’s been quite the day today, but sometimes it’s all worth it knowing you’ve got something tasty to come home to. This was truly slow meets fast, as the pulled chicken sat all day in the crock pot while the...

food: the good, the fast and the ugly

It certainly starts out from good looking ingredients, no? In my constant trying and testing of kitchen gadgetry, I’ve recently become a fan of microwave steaming bags. They’re made from “food safe plastic”–kind of odd, they’d explicitly state that and...

food: it smells as good as it looks!

Ever since I saw Ina make Chicken with 40 Cloves of Garlic on Barefoot Contessa, I knew it was a dish for me. In fact her show, over time, wore down my resistance to only cooking chicken in one way–baking...

food: What a crock!

I’m not sure I’ll ever forgive Norman for sending me one of his cast-offs, a 2-quart crock pot, or as the more refined say, slow cooker. Yes, I know it says Crock Pot on the damn thing, but I’m trying...

I myself would say that it had merely been detected.

Perhaps, after all, America never has been discovered. I myself would say that it had merely been detected. ~Oscar Wilde It’s actually been a pretty productive weekend, though for a lot of Saturday and Sunday I was down with migraines....

Every day’s the 4th of July…

Come Out, Come Out, Wherever You Are! Happy National Coming Out Day everyone. It’s also Navy Day in DC… coincidence? You be the judge. Up too early today, but it’s not really a bad thing. I made it out to...

Average Joe, Main Street, Russia… Maverick!

I didn’t even think about it, but last night was pretty themed. I made salmon and apple pies, just like a good Alaskan Maverick Energy-Producing Hockey Mom would! I watched the debate last night even though I was on the...
