It is already next year in Samoa, Tonga, Kiribati, Australia, Japan, Singapore, and China (who has one time zone, and the entire country goes by what time it is in Beijing), so Happy New Year to those people. If this takes very long to write, it could well be 2018 for my friends in Europe […]

If you’ve been living under a rock, you probably don’t know how much I adore StitchFix. I have been using them for a little over 2 years, and have partnered with them for an amazing deal for the Holiday Season. Not only are StitchFix gift cards the best solution for the fashionable or the people […]
I love words for things in other languages. Croquette is really just another word for patty, but is sounds so much more sophisticated, doesn’t it? Salmon Croquette! vs Patty (said in a nasal tone). I make these with canned salmon, because it’s a staple in my pantry. I don’t eat it a lot, but if […]
That’s funny, because I’m making this about you. I can’t stand when I’m expressing something on social media, and somebody – unsolicited – drive-by link-drops on my post. Take my post in the Boss Girl Bloggers group from last night, for example. Yesterday, I got my first unsolicited email subscriber on this site, and as you might […]
My super-cool blogging pal, Ell Duclos has issued a general challenge in her Facebook group, Boss Girl Bloggers to answer winter questions and tag other bloggers at the end, who will ostensibly respond. I don’t really chat with that many bloggers outside that group, but she didn’t tag the people I’m going to. Back in […]
Every year, I think the holidays get just a tiny bit crazier. Of course, some days are better than others – the days when it feels like the world heaves a collective sigh, because they’re just content with what’s now. It doesn’t happen often, but when it does, man! What a relief! I like to spread […]
As I reported in Sometimes, Life Forces You to Pivot, I had an anxiety attack that put me in atrial fibrillation, and sent my heart up to 257 beats per-minute. The following day, they did a few procedures to set my heart back to normal sinus rhythm – so it beats as closely to a “normal” […]
Have you ever been stumped about what to bring to a dinner party, especially if the host tells you to bring nothing? This handy guide to host/ess gifts will help you out.
Raise your hand if you’re a sucker for Orange anything? I absolutely am. Not only is it my favorite color, tasting orange always makes me feel awake and alive. It stands to reason, then, that these Orange Dream Wontons are to-die-for. They are super easy, and only have 5 ingredients. They are light, fluffy, and […]
I just noticed that it’s been almost a month since I posted here. I want to apologize to you. I never meant to leave this site behind. I just got overwhelmed, super homesick, and anxious with FOMO in a major way. I tried logging off Facebook and only hanging on Twitter. I like the way […]
I am challenged every year to decorate for a holiday in the least-expensive way possible. This year’s challenge was extended by Sarah over at Geeks Who Eat. She asked that I show how to transform dollar items into chic and stylish Halloween decorations. I went a little farther, and because cheap is the operative word […]
It’s not much of a secret that I dislike mayonnaise of any kind. I don’t like real mayo, or salad spread, or mayo made from olive oil. It’s purely a textural preference. It just feels…funny…in my mouth. So, I make tuna salad without it. I do keep mayo around my house (real and otherwise), because […]
