Lately, my life has been a series of tepid decisions. I choose clear polish for my finger tips. I have been driving the same reliable car for eleven years. My wardrobe is a mix of whites, blacks, and grays. However, something has come over me this summer. I have been exploring the possibility of being bold. Making choices, instead of sitting on the sidelines. Summer calls for something bright and fun, and by-golly I’m going to take advantage of it!

I love breakfast. I’m one of those people who wants eggs at dinner and is perennially pissed when I miss the customary 11am cut off at most establishments. Thank goodness for Dora Herrera. Dora and her mother have been serving up James Beard award winning food since “Mama Yuca” opened up a little stand in […]
[dropcap2]M[/dropcap2]y sister is a big fan of the AMC televsion show Mad Men, so when it came time to throw her bridal shower, I felt the theme was appropriate.

[dropcap2]I[/dropcap2]n honor of St. Patty’s Day, I want to share with you the wonder of making Irish Cream. Homemade Irish cream is decadent and delicious, with a real whiskey kick.
