Last month while visiting my brother and sis-in-law in Phoenix, we visited a Trader Joe’s store. I purchased a jar of almond butter there and then proceeded over the next month to languish over the jar, inserting a small spoon in it and savoring each nutty tasting in order to slowly stall to the day when I scraped the jar clean.

This morning I was supposed to host a restaurant on my Dishin & Dishes segment on Rise & Shine Oklahoma. That seemed strangely inappropriate after yesterdays devastation throughout our state so we cancelled it.
I would like to say this morning that I am proud to be working for such a great TV station. They were rockstars yesterday, keeping us informed by the minute as to what was happening. I saw many who normally are in studio anchors and weathermen and women out in the crazy weather keeping us informed as to what was going on. [Read more…]

A month or so ago, I was invited to go to the spring tasting menu of 105 Degrees. Rather, skeptical but always intrigued about healthy food, I played along.

In the words of Ferris Bueller, I am taking a day off! Gosh, I love that movie!
I’m taking off work and other stuff to spend the day with my parents before they return to Michigan tomorrow.
And then I will stop eating horribly fattening stuff. [Read more…]
A few weeks back my friend Kristy from one of my favorite places – t, an urban teahouse sent out a Tweet on Twitter that she had tea leaves for composting for anyone who needed them.
If you don’t know, composting is nature’s way of recycling organic material back into the soil, enriching it as it breaks down. My grandpa used to compost in a large crate in his backyard at our cabin in Michigan. He’d toss in all kinds of fruit peels, vegetable scraps, leaves and even used coffee grounds. [Read more…]
This is my Dad.
My Dad makes some awesome steaks. In fact, my kids say the best steaks on the planet. And it’s all about the sauce he brushes on them as he grills. They’re tender, they’re juicy, and the sauce is…
Amazingly good. [Read more…]
