RAMEN
Right around the holidays I got news that a high school friend died. Took her own life. I hadn’t thought about her in years, but I remember her well. She was one of those people you don’t easily forget. I was a gawky fres...

A great holiday cookie recipe for butter balls!
'Tis the apex of Holiday-Orama. I just recovered from some weird twenty-four hour stomach bug that was pretty unpleasant. Fred too. Even Emerson had some little nannyboosky situation in addition to her newly ever present runn...

Spaghetti con Limone and some lovely ruminations...
The simplest, most pared down things allow the tiniest details to shine. If something, a wall, bedding, a dress, is all white, you will immediately be drawn to the shadow, the texture, the fabric, the delicate stitching, or t...

I'm OK, you're OK.

Taped to the window of a dark, modest cranny of a restaurant, paper cut-out letters read AUTHENTIC.
