To me, cooking is not a game or a contest. It’s an expression of love in its simplest form. This doesn’t mean it has to be some super fancy 4-course dinner that takes all day to prepare—it could be a bag of ramen. To cook means to feed your body and your mind. It helps […]
O Basket, Where Art Thou?
So it is Easter weekend and I figured I would share a funny Easter Day story from the old childhood. To tell you this story, I have to preface it with telling you that my Dad was a huge practical jokester and the funniest person I have ever known. He was the kind of guy […]

My Dad, Anthony, and Me
There are some days that you want to erase from the calendar. You want to just sleep through it and pretend that it never happen. For me that day is June 8th. June 8th is when I lost my best friend: a man who always had the answers in the toughest times, always had the […]

It’s still a mystery to me how we morphed the Greek god of love, Eros, into a tiny little cherub baby with wings, but hey, here we are. Whether you like it or not, Valentine’s Day […]
It was a cold November day when I was 8 years old. The car was packed with everything we needed to visit my Grandma in Pennsylvania…including the most important thing: our appetites. If you showed up without that, well, you should’ve just stayed home. Thanksgiving was certainly a treat for my family. We didn’t often […]
