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 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...
