Snow, snow, go away? It hasn’t begun yet, but supposedly we have another doozy of a storm on our doorstep. Yeah. Yay. Hey, at least I’m not hosting a party tonight…or sick any longer… Bring it on. I guess. Thinking we’re not venturing terribly far for the next couple of days, I made sure to…

Oy. Distant memories, these good times… I have been sick, my friends. The nausea started on Sunday and finally released me from its stomach roiling grip this morning. (I hope!) Thank goodness I felt well for my party on Saturday night! A snowstorm AND stomach flu would have been the complete kiss of death for…

Happy Birthday Stu The Wine Genius! I forgot to wish him Happy Birthday last night when he and Debbie were here for my party. They had flown in from sunny Florida earlier in the day, quickly switched mental gears into winter mode, and then set out in a snowstorm for our house. Today Stu will…

Friday Morning Coffee with Suz! Man, it’s been weeks again, waaay too long. It was great to see her beautiful face and talk super-fast so I could fill her in on all the goings on of the last couple of weeks. You know, the stuff we haven’t covered in email or on the phone, ha….

Hallelujah, feeling the sun and warm(er) breezes today RAWKED (just ask George; I know I’ve used this pic before, it just cracks me up so much I had to use it again)! It actually smelled like spring during my morning walk – put such a grin on my face that the Byerly’s cashier commented on…

I love LA! Yes indeed I do, oh my. John and I just returned from a long, lovely weekend in La La Los Angeles. Sunny and 80 degrees, my friends, heavenly. Perfect medicine – warmth, color, flowers, birdsong. We put in place our tried-and-true, John-and-Stephanie formula – great hotel + great scenic drives + great…

I made John and Nathan’s night by preparing nothing more than avgolemono (Greek egg-lemon soup). It’s one of their very favorites, which is incredibly lucky for me, really – four ingredients, that’s it! Broth, rice, egg yolks, and lemon juice. Simple perfection. It is delicious, and makes a satisfying dinner with a big (but not…
