Not moderate, Stephanie, not moderate at all! Oy. Just back from an amazing – indulgent! – trip to the sunny desert beauty of Palm Springs, all expenses paid, as my Badger girlfriend Michelle’s guest. Thank you, Mich! (Yes, she is taller than me; sorry for the bad pic, it’s the only one we bothered to…

Now this is more like it, people! Sunny and mid-60s – yeah, baby, we’ll take it! And I have yet to get out there and really enjoy it, since I was kinda, er, toast today. Last night was our neighborhood women’s association “meeting” – as in we “meet” to drink wine and gossip. If only…

If you’re looking for casual, healthy, tasty eats in St. Louis Park, the black-bean burger at good ol’ McCoy’s is pretty damn hard to beat. I met my dear friend Kathie for dinner there last night and we each chowed one down, topped with guacamole, tomato, lettuce, pickles, and onions. We skipped the cheese (unnecessary…

Forgot to say yesterday that I FINALLY pulled off Friday Morning Coffee with Suz this week – woo hoo! With vacations and deaths and birthdays and what is generally known as life constantly intervening, we are far from our weekly groove lately. I was sooooo needing to laugh, and laugh we did, whew it was…

Wouldn’t you know, a damn snowstorm did us in yet again?! Unbelievable. This time on the east coast, preventing my brother David and sister Etta from coming out from NYC for the weekend, as well as Bowen’s sister Sara and her husband Romero coming from Vermont. Damn! Boo! Damn! Luckily Bowen’s parents Hal and Suzanne…

Well, Hello Spring! My goodness, it’s 64 degrees out there right now! How fabulous! (We could use the cheering up, frankly.) I’m making Savory-Sweet Pork Tenderloin Stew for dinner. With couscous. And a big salad of some sort, haven’t decided yet. Friday we’re having a big, big dinner party here at the hacienda, a pre-Cooper…

Happy 1st Birthday Cooper! My adorable nephew is a year old today – WOW! Nothing makes time go faster than a baby. Snap your fingers and a year is gone (and I’m 40!), sheesh. That’s because they’re so FUN, especially when they belong to your sister and you get the win-win of babysitting AND getting…

Sigmund Louis Levy 3/29/92 – 3/11/07 A very sad day indeed – I had to put down our beloved dog, Sigmund. He’s been quite frail for the last several months, so we’ve known that each day he’s felt good was a little gift. Not many Gordon setters get to be almost 15 years old. I…

Cooper Time! I’m babysitting my almost-one-year-old (!) nephew Cooper today (he’s napping as I write this). Little slice of heaven, that Cooper-Doo. He chatted through our trip to Target, lots of “wow” and “uh oh,” charming the pants off anyone who walked by us. No one can resist baby talk, especially when the words are…

In the mood for something a bit spring-y, I made roasted asparagus and sauteed lamb chops for dinner (nothing fancy – just seasoned with a little coarse salt and dried thyme before I tossed them into a smoking hot skillet). Oooh, all I needed were morels to make the perfect spring dinner, mmm… And perfectly…
