One Hundred and Nine degrees. I know the weather chick said it was “only” 107… but she also told me that we “only” had a 30% chance of rain in late May. And then it flooded. Buy my thermometer said 109. So 109 it is. How do you deal with 109 degrees? I weed the [...]

It’s probably no surprise to any of you, but when I see a new fruit come in season – or priced low enough that I can’t resist hoarding – the first thing that comes to my mind is: I have tequila at home, right? Because, really now – what fruit doesn’t make a good margarita? [...]

Have you entered the KitchenAid Stand Mixer giveaway yet? You should! Contest closes Thursday night! Crammed into the busting-at-the-seams bottom drawer of my freezer is a collection of leftover bowls filled with… leftovers. There’s chili and chicken stock. And something that’s either more chili or possibly a meaty marinara sauce (I’ll find out for sure [...]

I’m totally loving reading all your responses to the giveaway questions – and watched Elf tonight because of it – but I can’t respond in-line because then I throw off the comment numbering system and then the random generator thingy might just stab me.

You recovered from that turkey & football coma yet? My goodness, that was glorious. And gloriously painful. And if we’re talking about the Texans & Cowboys games, just flat-out glorious. I wasn’t disowned for healthifying the broccoli & rice casserole. My dad was well enough to be up and about for the day. My cousin [...]

An orange margarita. A Mimosarita? Either way, it’s what happens when you run short on limes and your toddler’s last molar has sucked enough of your will to live to make running to the grocery store seem like being asked to hurdle the Grand Canyon. In a pencil skirt. But we haven’t been overly dramatic [...]

Skinnier Margarita

It’s Friday! And we’re feeling even more celebratory than usual because this morning I got dressed and then immediately took my jeans off. Without unbuttoning them. Over the last few months, I’ve been “running,” which is code for “mostly walking between weeks-long hamstring problems” and keeping an eye on calories in vs calories out. Such [...]

I was supposed to have a fantastical ice cream recipe to share today to wrap up the giveaway for National Ice Cream Month but I ended up washing it down the sink. I know it’s difficult to comprehend but it’s true. There is a such thing as terrible ice cream. And because I refused to [...]
