A “Nightmare” of a meal at Mojito

Back in May of 2009, Kitchen Nightmares – one of my favorite shows – filmed an episode in my neighborhood, at local Cuban restaurant Mojito.  It’s never a good sign for a restaurant to make it onto the show, and I felt glad that I had never eaten there before.  I’ve seen plenty of episodes […]

Win a Your Shape to get yours in shape!

Finally unpacking the kitchen

Sorry, the sound level is very low on this.  I love it when my laptop changes levels on things for absolutely no reason.

Interview with Antoine Fuqua, director

On location with “Brooklyn’s Finest,” bodega edition

In the summer of  ’08 I was lucky enough to spend a day on the set of a Richard Gere/Ethan Hawke movie, Brooklyn’s Finest,  for my other blog Filming In Brooklyn.   I’m reposting what came out of that visit in anticipation of the movie’s March 5th release.  You can see the first one here. This […]

Models falling down. Yes, I’m laughing

Karma pretty much dictates that I’m going to fall down soon for posting this video, but I’m going to risk it anyway.  In honor of New York’s Fashion Week, here’s a video of models falling down. Maybe if they ate once in a while they’d stay on their feet better. Originally posted on Selfish Mom. […]

On Location with “Brooklyn’s Finest”

In the summer of 2008 I got to spend a day on the set of Brooklyn’s Finest for my other blog, Filming In Brooklyn, and it was quite a day.  It’s been a year-and-a-half, but I’m finally starting to see commercials for the movie.  It will be in theaters on March 5th, and since I […]
