I’ve been an icky depressed grump the past couple of months (The Spring That Isn’t/Wasn’t is only partially to blame). And much to my dismay, every time I try to hide under my own personal little black rain cloud, something tries to pull me out. Friends get back in touch. People I respect compliment my [...]

Hey there. I mentioned recently on Twitter that I’d like to start blogging casually again. Since my computer and camera were recently liberated from my ownership, I have no pressure to make things Tastespotting/Foodgawker-worthy. It’s all about the flavor anyway.

Although I moved to the Very Big City all by myself (well, I brought Bowser, but he’s the kind of company that just makes a racket until I feed him), I manage to not feel lonely most of the time. In fact, less than a week after I got here, I was lucky enough to [...]
I’m back from my apartment hunt and still catching up on basically everything, so this will be short. And sweet, or so I’m told.
I don’t like that word – foodie – much. It’s a silly non-word. However, I can’t think of a better way to describe my take on a classic, easy bake sale item.
