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...

sports: Rock the Red!

I was rockin’ the red*, but it didn’t seem to helps the Caps net a win over the Kings, losing 4-5. But the end of the game was an emotional roller coaster! Even though they didn’t win, the rush of...
