So you know that saying ‘the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach’? Full disclosure, I have been trying to turn that into a food tour tweet for much longer than I’d like to admit. (I know there’s at least um.. 7 of you who have just done this and are wondering what’s wrong…

So not sure if you guys are as big NPR fans as I am, but I love a good Saturday morning Car Talk. Listening to Click and Clack on my way to brunch is a must. And I’m not in it for car knowledge. Their puzzlers are pretty epic, and they’ve inspired me to try…

Maybe I’ve just been in denial for the past few weeks- but judging by the SIX TEN INCHES OF SNOW outside my door, I have to admit that that pampered, overstuffed, ageless groundhog was right! (I know you know which shadow seeking rodent I am referring to- none other than Punxsutawney) Now some of you may…

Now, I love the classics as much as anyone- give me a Gin & Tonic or Manhattan, and I’m one happy camper.  Really, there’s a reason they’re called classics.  But every now and then, you’ve got to CRAWL out of your COMFORT ZONE and try something NEW! That’s why I love finding…
