Dinner and The Blonde: Hangovers Deserve Good Mood Food

Dinner and The Blonde:  Hangovers Deserve Good Mood Food
Waking up, sprinting to the bathroom. But not making the toilet. I’ll assume I don’t need to add details for sake of, well, details. This scene is exactly how I like to envision myself as a sex-pot. Toilet: sex pot, is that a pun? Anyway, shit happens. Hmmm… maybe that’s a pun? Either way, when... Read more »

Deep Dinner Thoughts: Drunk Dialing and Chili

Deep Dinner Thoughts:  Drunk Dialing and Chili
I walk in the door and he calls.  Last time we spoke was over a year ago.  It’s 2:30 a.m, I’m drunk, and I answer.  The fact that I’m drunk is not why I answer.  I answer because I’m wearing the dress he bought for my birthday.  I think it’s a sign… everything is a... Read more »

When The Universe Spits (Chick-Fil-A) In Your Face

When The Universe Spits (Chick-Fil-A) In Your Face
As an independent, single woman, I am perfectly secure doing things by myself.  For instance, I live alone, I like going to movies alone.  I enjoy sitting at Starbucks with one cup of coffee at a table, alone.  I cope going to weddings without a guest, put in a corner and seated with other misfits.  These things...

Holiday Hospitality: Be Happy I’m Celebrating

Holidays can have us overindulge in group festivities and holiday cheer.  The Holiday morale among friends, family, coworkers and total strangers is in full swing.  Constant celebration is a fun type of chaos- but can we take this Holiday hype too far?  I say yes.  It can’t all be merry and bright.  That would be...

Thanksgiving and the Blonde: The Gift of a Kitchen Bombshell

Thanksgiving.  Giving thanks.  Thanks and soul searching.  Yes, soul searching and thanks go hand in hand.  We are supposed to think about others during the holiday season but if you are like me, you think about others then quickly back to yourself (said while flipping hair back).  And that is okay because I started to...

Go Ganache: My Dirty Delight

I have a confession.  My sweet tooth overrides any decent diet restriction or health consideration for basically, well, anyone.  I confess, I eat store bought hot fudge topping and frosting.  I eat it with a spoon, straight from the container it came in.  I have even brought it in my bag to work as a...

If Food Is Love Then Grilling Is Sex

The grill.  A symbol of summer.  What else is symbolic of summer?  A good old fashioned summer fling.  So, what do grilling and summer flings have in common?  Sex.  I relate both to sex. Summer is NOT over.  I’ll just cut to the chase:  Grilling is a turn on.  I am not talking about kink... Read more »

Blonde Inspiration: I Read Cookbooks For Fun, Duh

We all need inspiration to start something.  To get motivated, right?  To begin cooking, well, sometimes our need to eat doesn’t suffice for a homemade meal.  We need something more; a drive to preheat the oven and mess with mixing bowls.  Cooking inspiration comes from so many passions in life, I could write an entire...

Lemons, Alcohol, and A Holiday

I am a little tart by nature and when life hands me a lot of lemons at once, I turn pretty sour.  I will say, I have done some cool things with all the excess citrus life has so generously gifted me.  Thanks, Life.  I owe you. Since it is a holiday week, let’s focus... Read more »
