SNACK TREK: Where in the World Have I Been?

Would you believe Budapest? I was there for two weeks in March for work, and it sort of threw a wrench into my blogging. Well, a bunch of stuff threw a wrench into my blogging, but whatever — I’m back. And I want to share some food pics with you, obvs. (Click on any pic to see it bigger.) Pretty much all of the Hungarian … Continue reading SNACK TREK: Where in the World Have I Been?

Happy Birthday to Me

It’s my birthday! Which, for me, signals a time of great eatin’s (and reflection). It has been a quick year, filled with various food adventures and calamities. I found out I was (sorta) lactose intolerant, I was told to stop eating red meat (among other things) for my cholesterol, I fell out of shape, I tried to get back into shape, I cooked spaetzle, I … Continue reading Happy Birthday to Me

When I Grow Up I Want to Be Nora Ephron

Why do I never find out the extent of a person’s amazing-ness until they die? What’s up with that? (That’s life — er, death.) Stories about Nora Ephron are flooding in (I like this one by Rita Wilson, and here’s the Vanity Fair write-up… and hey, she was friends with Serious Eats!), and I had no idea that she was a great cook! Who had … Continue reading When I Grow Up I Want to Be Nora Ephron

On Monday I brought it to work with the last of the linguine. On Tuesday I forgot to make more linguine, so I just ate chicken. And I kept eating the chicken on Wednesday, … Continue reading The (Not-Too-Terrible) Curse of the Crock Pot

Aftertaste: SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, SEASON 7

Shockingly enough! A post about TV! Last year this blog kinda exploded when I wrote about “So You Think You Can Dance.” (Especially when I wrote about Evan Kasprzak and Jeanine Mason… they have intense fans.) (I will probably get a bunch of hits just for including their names in this. Suckas!) (Just kidding, love ya.) This season I obviously didn’t do the insane recaps, … Continue reading Aftertaste: SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE, SEASON 7

Aftertaste: THE JOE SCHMO SHOW

This feature is going to be dedicated to shows that I totally missed when they first aired, but which I have rediscovered via the YouTubes, borrowed DVDs, etc. It’s pretty much the same idea as Ketchup/Catch Up, but these shows are no longer in production. 😦 Yesterday my boss and I started talking about the upcoming show “More to Love,” and about the complete weirdness … Continue reading Aftertaste: THE JOE SCHMO SHOW
