A Night on Ha Long Bay, Vietnam

A Night on Ha Long Bay, Vietnam

It’s time to tell you about Vietnam.  I don’t typically belabor my travels and try to sum up my experiences in a few posts, but my North to South journey was filled with…well, so much of a little bit of everything, one or two tales would […]

Sunday Somethings

Hello, Sunday. It’s been a hard week.  Getting back into post-vacation swing is always a challenge, but this one…takes the cake. That, combined with the tragedies we are all facing here and abroad, no news to share, but a song that popped into my head, […]

Kimchi and Bacon Roasted Brussels Sprouts

Kimchi and Bacon Roasted Brussels Sprouts

It’s so funny how what was once such a hated vegetable is, of late, having its day in the sun times ten.  Brussels are everywhere and, a favorite of mine, I’m eating them up without shame or hesitation. Here’s a new iteration, and I suspect […]

I’m still hopping southward in Vietnam with my girls, but I realized that while I scheduled some recipes to share, I neglected my usual Sunday one-way banter. Lounging around our hotel with some free time, I thought I’d get you up to speed on what’s […]

In case you haven’t looked at the calendar recently, it appears that Mardi Gras is once again upon us.  Perhaps you’ve never given it much of a thought, but having spent 4ish years of my young adult times down in NOLA, it was a date […]

Buffalo Chicken Wings

Buffalo Chicken Wings

Well, I’m off on some Asian travels today with Lettuce and Yam, and I’ve admittedly been bit frazzled because, leaving for a two week trip, there is much to be done. Lists are made and one by one a to-do is checked off, and the […]

Sweet and Spicy Chicken Wings

Sweet and Spicy Chicken Wings

It’s Super Bowl week! Despite the fact that I couldn’t care less about who is playing in the game (because my poor Bills never get all that far), it’s always such a good time because it involves good food, good people and usually a somewhat […]

Sunday Somethings

Hello, Sunday. It’s two days before I leave for Vietnam with my girls on Wednesday, so I spent much of yesterday packing, doing laundry, cleaning up and a bit of pampering so that I’m not rushing around Wednesday morning as an Uber waits outside. I’m […]

I’ve been in a weird food mood. On one hand, I want a good burger and fries. Like, a really good burger and fries. On the other, I want a nice bibimbap, or butter chicken, or something spicy and different.  And then there are those […]
