Serious Pie

October 31, 2008

I’m currently in the airport waiting for our red eye back to Boston and feeling literally stuffed to the gills from days and days of fabulous food, coffee, and booze. In fact, CK and I just had our last Seattle dinner at Serious Pie which ended up being one of the places we deemed fabulous […]

October 22, 2008

It’s no secret that I’m a pro Apple all the way kind of girl so I absolutly love this new “Get a Mac” ad that features PC having a bake sale in order to raise funds to fix Vista. Obviously they need all the help they can get for that task… [Link via TUAW]

Thank You Carrie!

October 10, 2008

Last Saturday a fabulous care package arrived on my doorstep. My friend Carrie had sent a Fed-Ex treasure chest of complete awesomeness. Inside I found a snazzy pink pencil box full of her famous Happy Jane treats (in pumpkin and peanut butter flavors respectively), “Rad” coffee beans from Summit Coffee, not one but two CDs […]

“The Works” Pizza with Honey Wheat Crust

October 9, 2008

Yes, that is in fact a jar of Newman’s Own Tomato and Basil in the above picture. I’m not ashamed. I think I get a pass for using store bought sauce for two reasons: 1. It’s manufactured by Paul Newman’s company and 2. I made my own pizza dough. Oh…ok…CK made it. Not wanting to […]
