I LOVE FOOD!

I LOVE FOOD!

I love food. IT AIN’T NO SECRET! I love food! I love eating it, I love cooking with family and friends, I love the environment of a kitchen, I love the environment of a dinner table, or a new restaurant, or a food truck. Eating and cooking is always such a unifying experience that is…

WHERE IS THE YEAR GOING?

WHERE IS THE YEAR GOING?

We are officially half way through 2014. I don’t understand the sentence, I just thought for a hot minute and then wrote it down. I don’t know how that’s possible. I feel like it was Christmas time two weeks ago, and yet here we are, sweating together a few weeks deep into July. I don’t…

My Favorite Home-Cooked Meals

So as many of you know, I’m not big on cooking. Can I follow a recipe and make it work? Sure! But it’s not my thing (I have other things, okay?!). Give me a canvas and a paintbrush any day. Luckily my assistant who is the best, also cooks for me, the greatest simple perk…

Towels Towels Towels

Towels Towels Towels

I feel like towels are REALLY under appreciated. First of all: FUNCTION. We use them daily, more than most things (or just as much as our MOST important things, like shampoo or something).

Sometimes Stupid is Just Stupid

Sometimes Stupid is Just Stupid

Stupid does not discriminate (sorry EVERYONE). It’s not a gay thing or straight thing, a black thing or white thing, it’s not even a Christian or Muslim issue (I know, SO crazy). It is, by it’s very nature, a human (that means you & me) condition, and yes, it is contagious (more on that to…
