Omusubi & Pizza in Manhattan

Omusubi & Pizza in Manhattan

Brunch Lunch (A Turnover Fairy Tale)

Every now and again you need to use what you already have–make some movement in the refrigerator. My crisper drawer runneth over. It is not permanent storage. So for my week’s lunch, I’d use it all. It would be brunch for lunch. What better an idea to use […]

You Are What You Eat

New Years Eve Dinner: MMX meet I

New Years Eve Dinner: MMX meet I

he couch is a nice place to welcome in the New Year, especially when one has drastically altered their sleep schedule since the start of winter break. Head-bobbing by 11:15 p.m. and already hung over, dinner in was a deterrent to an unproductive morning after: […]

I had to be very selective about who received a holiday cookie care package this year. Next year, when I am through studying to be a master of the universe, you’ll all get them. The chocolate chip cookie is a must in any cookie assortment. […]

I am thankful to survive, and thrive, through the love and support of friends. Thanksgiving plans changed drastically at the last minute due to reasons a trained psychologist will need to help me understand. Luckily, I was able to find a place to feast. Here […]
