I am cheap. In my family we like to call it ‘careful with money’ except when we are talking about one of my cousins. Him we just call Scott.

Just kidding. Scott throws really nice parties and never skimps on the booze. And his wife is super nice. I never get to see her because she has kids and a job and I think there’s a dog in there somewhere. Read more

GOTV Recipe Challenge


It’s a week late, but the food we ate while getting out the vote is still worth sharing. Enjoy!

Burritos! Donuts! Ice Cream! Asian Fusion! And that was just Saturday.

We had some very good food while in the Fresno area and we would like to share some of it with you. Read more

Café Santorini Recipe Challenge

Café Santorini

Last weekend, Felicia and I went to dinner at a lovely Pasadena restaurant, Cafe Santorini. It’s upstairs, has a wonderful patio, pours a startlingly strong Old Fashioned and the stuffed grape leaves…I’m going to pause here for a minute or two and remember how delightful they were. The food was good, the service was friendly and I mentioned how strong the drinks were.

Tonight is Sunday. Next week looms, full of possibilities and pitfalls. I can’t say how it’s going to go. Maybe there will be an actual recipe here next week. Or another picture of an alcoholic beverage.

Only time will tell. But until then, give Cafe Santorini a try.

Our First Conference: Part 2

This may seem weird, but one of the things I’ve been looking forward to most about starting a business with Aileen, is attending conferences.  I love conferences, at least small, relatively obscure ones. Not massive gatherings. I don’t like crowds, or lines. It’s an opportunity for a diverse group of people, with a common interest to come together and learn from one another.  When Aileen was writing romance a few years back, I would go to conferences with her. I don’t write and I don’t particularly like or read romance novels, but I LOVED going to those conferences. I would sit in on sessions that I knew nothing about and just listen. Read more

Flock and Fowl

Another restaurant review instead of a recipe completed? Yes. Luckily, no other failure has been quite this delicious. This week we are in Las Vegas for a conference and rather than make two recipes and bank one for the week I wouldn’t be home I just ate delicious chicken someone else made.

How to talk about Flock and Fowl without gushing or crying? I love fried chicken. It was my mother’s speciality. Most restaurant fried chicken is greasy and the meat is dry. Not so at Flock and Fowl. They make chicken wings that will make you want to lay down and scream. Then there is slaw and potato salad and cucumber salad and a rum punch you can buy an entire PUNCHBOWL of. Everything is fresh and delicious and Felicia is looking to see if we have enough time and money to go there again for dinner tonight. It isn’t expensive but 50 bucks for two (with booze) is still a lot for a blog that makes no money. So wish us luck and if you are ever in Las Vegas, give this place a try.

VenTiki Recipe Challenge


Even I am amazed at how fast the Recipe Challenge has fallen apart. At first I thought it would be the reading challenge but then it occurred to me that I have spent a good portion of my life reading whereas cooking?

Not so much. Read more

Lucky Thai recipe challenge

Lucky Thai

Once again, the week has been a disaster so we are pivoting to something that has to do with food but does not involve me in a kitchen. I am moving. My kitchen is just boxes and good intentions.

So this week we are highlighting our favorite restaurant in Ventura, Lucky Thai. We walk there from our office every time we work. The food is good, the wine glasses are chilled and the booths are very comfortable. I am writing this with a tummy full of Thai food and waaaaay too much chilled white wine.

Let us know where you go to eat and relax with the ones you love. Read more
