Orly? Yes, really.

Sometimes you’re just in the right place at the right time. I spent the last four days in Nashville at a blogging conference, Blissdom, and as luck would have it, our conference was in the same hotel as the National Tea Party.  Right next to it, in fact.  So, there was some comical mixing of […]

I’m all over the place

I’ve mentioned my friend Jennie’s blog before, In Jennie’s Kitchen.   I love her no-nonsense approach to food and her zucchini parmesan hummus was totally yummy.  So I was thrilled when she asked me to guest-post on her blog last week.  And being me, I used it as an excuse to bitch about something.  Please stop […]
