Do you watch Aarti Sequeira on The Food Network? I do! She has a season pass alongside my idols Nigella Lawson and Ina Garten. Once upon a time I used to watch oodles of shows on Food Network but now I only record a very select few. It’s a hard gig to make it onto […]

My grandfather, Edgar, passed away when I was in Kindergarten but even though that was 25 years ago I still have a host of lovely memories of the short time he and I spent together. I often fondly recall how he would let me sit on the kitchen counter while he mixed up a batch […]

October 12, 2007

Black Bean Soup & Spicy Cornbread Muffins

October 11, 2006

Before I started dating CK I essentially refused to eat anything spicy. In the past I’ve honestly gone out to dinner at Mexican restaurants and only ordered margaritas and snacked on corn chips, but now I’m addicted to heat.
