But wait, I LOVE Carbs!

July 24, 2019

I feel like I’m always torn between carbs and no carbs. I always thought oatmeal for breakfast was good for me, but now it’s like anything carby is the enemy. This is especially depressing for an Italian. But I’ll never be able to bring myself to think of pasta as the enemy. It’s my sweet friend, and we’ve gone through many a dark time – I won’t turn…

Happy Fourth of July! Start it with Crepes!

July 4, 2019

I wish I could go back to childhood to see how much time (and my faulty memory) have altered what I think I recall clearly. My Fourth of July memories revolve around picnics at Brady’s Run Park, on slightly damp summer grass. The only food I remember is the Fourth of July birthday cake with tiny American flags on it because the Fourth was my mom’s birthday, and…

Dante vs. Cream of Wheat

April 20, 2017

I try to be deep, honest I do. I do my best to read classics and ponder life because I aspire to write deep, philosophical blogs. In fact, I’m currently reading Dante’s Inferno — who knew hell could be so icky? But because of the ADHD I keep denying I have, my brain prefers to escape the circles of hell and fixate on something I enjoy more, like…

September 25, 2015

I love them all, especially Reef, my daughter’s boyfriend, who entered sainthood the day he served as spotter — helping me pinpoint where my intestinally challenged dog had left lovely gifts on my living room rug.…

Lemon Ricotta Pancakes for Father’s Day

June 8, 2015

Ever since I first heard about lemon ricotta pancakes, I’ve wanted to try them. They sound like the perfect Father’s Day breakfast. I especially wanted to make them because my daughter went to Claire’s on Cedros in Solana Beach, California, and told me she ate the best pancakes of her life there. How could stinking Claire make the best pancakes of her life when mine, her baker/cook mom’s,…

Dreaming of Spring

February 22, 2014

If you’re in a state that’s not Florida, California or Hawaii right now, you’re probably dreaming of spring.  I live in California and I apologize up front.  It just happened this way, I didn’t really plan it, so don’t hate me.  I never gloat over the weather because I could be killed at any second by a terrifying mother of an earthquake.  That pretty much evens things out…
