Katie Brown talks to me about throwing great parties, comfort food, portion control, and more

I got to interview Katie Brown last week about some new recipes for spring.  I’ve been trying to lose weight, and having some success, and I have to say I just haven’t been trying that hard.  I try to stick to about 1,500 calories a day and exercise two or three times a week, but […]

My new Frigidaire fridge: no fingerprints

Fingerprints on appliances are ugly, but our new Frigidaire refrigerator is gorgeous.  And I don’t really clean it.  I mean, a wipe here and there if there’s a big dollop of ketchup, but that’s really it.  And yet it has no fingerprints.  It has a special coating that keeps fingerprints off of the surface, and […]

First they came for the implants, and I said nothing because my jugs were real

I was showering this morning and had 1010 Wins on the radio, when I heard the words “Disney” and “breast implants” in the same sentence.  That doesn’t happen often.  It seems that a casting notice recently went out for extras for the fourth “Pirate of the Caribbean” movie that spells out the need for actresses […]

Perfect Popcorn is just the beginning

We eat a good amount of microwave popcorn in this house.  If the family sits down to watch a movie, we’ll go through two or three big bags.  And when I’m counting calories and need to munch on something that has some bulk but isn’t a calorie bomb, I go for a snack-size bag of […]

What does bowling have to do with Tropicana Juice?

I’m excited to officially announce that I’m a Tropicana Juicy Insider, which means that I get to spread the word about a great program that Tropicana has going, where buying juice can save you money. Seriously, the carton of Tropicana OJ in your fridge right now might have a Tropicana Juicy Rewards code under the […]

What the heck is Obscura Day?

Tomorrow, The Ass and I are taking the kids underground.  No, we’re not going into hiding.  When we do that it will most definitely be without the kids.  We’ve got a really cool expedition planned, into an old abandoned Brooklyn subway tunnel.  The tour is being led by the very guy who discovered the tunnel […]
