The Truth about Rubber and Glue

The following prompt is working in the vein of the old "I'm rubber, you're glue . ." riposte. This chummy challenge was created by those two mistresses of mayhem- Dale of A Dalectable Life and Karen of Table for One.  Do not ask me how these ladies come up with the craziness. But I'll try 'me best… Continue reading The Truth about Rubber and Glue

Pulling a fast one in our search for the perfect Cuban sammy

Bobby Flay ain't gonna be down with this latest episode of our search for the quintessential Cubano. Neither is Rick Bayless, Giada, Cat, Guy, Rachael, Rocco or Jamie.

We made way for the… Continue reading Our search for the Perfect Cuban Sandwich takes the long way home

At the Movies! (Totally, Shamelessly Unauthorized Edition)

January is God's way of saying, "I got nothing,". It's a month in which people trash their resolutions, pen resignation letters that never see the light of day, and sign up for overpriced online dating sites in spite of the fact Craigslist is free. For yours truly, I like to keep it simple. I use… Continue reading At the Movies! (Totally, Shamelessly Unauthorized Edition)

The Day I ‘Chickened Out’, and why I’m proud of it

I'm not much for extreme stances, seeing as how it's difficult to abide by such things with any degree of magnanimity. Taking a stand on something is easy, following through is the sticky part of the label. But there are some things to which I am unwavering, mostly. Take for instance the fact I haven't… Continue reading The Day I ‘Chickened Out’, and why I’m proud of it
