28 Feb Three Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

These are grilled cheeses for slow, lumbering sundays, days when you crave a delicious sandwich and have an hour or two to kill making it. These are not your mother’s grilled cheese sandwiches and these are not just another typical grilled cheese. A note about my cooking recipes: With a few exceptions (see the sweet wine reduction below), you will notice I don’t give  specific amounts to ingredients in a recipe. While exacting measurements are…

07 Feb Bitter Bitch

We’ve all been there–young, bursting with enthusiasm and unfashionably single on Valentine’s Day.  Anywhere you go in the city, the holiday mocks you–gaudy red paper hearts in stores, pyramids of first class and dreadful chocolates and sentimental greeting cards ready to express the sweetest words to your beloved.   Ah, what a few years can bring. I eventually realized that you can either feel sorry for yourself and be disappointed about it year after year,…

Behind the formidable front door stands a forbidding father. Am I more nervous about the date or about impressing dad? My shaky hand reaches out to push the doorbell. My dry mouth struggles to swallow the cotton it is…

21 Jan Bourbon Spiked Hot Chocolate

Somehow I find myself idly standing lakeside on an unusually foggy morning, the type of morning where the fog cloaks everything in an erie white blanket, hiding you from your surroundings and the surroundings from you. My eyes fixate on the still water and the reflection of a barely visible tree line somewhere in the distance. I watch and wait, hiding in this fog cocoon. Nothing changes. For the minutes I stand there staring, everything…

15 Jan Chocolate Chip S’mores

Short grey days seem to linger with little purpose. Chilly mornings feel gelid and uninviting. They seem to say, “go back inside and sip on cocoa.”  Everybody searches for warmth. Blankets are stacked high on beds and couches, always within reach. Fluffy coats hang by drafty doors. Fires roar to life inside and outside. S’mores, the quintessential summertime treat, warm my soul during cold, dark winter days and nights.
