I have way too many leftover odds and ends from CK’s birthday last Saturday taking up space in the refrigerator so I’ve spent this week trying very hard to not let them go to waste. On Monday I used oodles of leftover broccoli and cauliflower, formerly intended to be dipped in fondue, to make a pretty delicious […]

CK and I both eat a ton of yogurt in a variety of forms and flavors so when given the opportunity I jumped at the chance to taste test Olympus’s product line.

Is Purple the New Pink?

August 1, 2007

I should probably be really offended by this article from the 1930′s about a group of men who redesigned the family kitchen to “fit” their wives, but honestly it’s my dream to design a kitchen to fit myself. I’m 5’9” and while I can pretty much reach anything, it’s a total pain (literally) when I […]

Dave Lieberman’s Buttery Baby Pea Soup

October 22, 2006

This Pea Soup is the easiest meal I’ve ever made. After a long day of errand running I was less than thrilled about the prospect of making dinner…OK…that’s a lie. I always like to cook, but I bet you’ve had plenty of moments when you have absolutely zero desire to do anything more than eat […]
