Friday Shout Out: Eh.

Yeah, still sick am I.

Well, I'm mobile and on the job at this point, as I couldn't handle another day confined to our wee apartment. "Cozy," they call it, when visitors see if for the first time.

No, it's freaking small, but thanks for that.

So....still sick and apparently a little bitchy too. My bad.

What will be today's shout out? I have no Earthly idea. How about....tea? Yeah, tea sounds good.

We drink a lot of it in our house and one of my lovely cubemates at work has started a tea stash for us to delve into. It's therapeutic and meditative, conjuring up images of gardens and little cucumber sandwiches and ladies in bonnets and gloves. Well, scratch the bonnets and gloves. I've got frizzy hair and uber-wrinkled clothes on today, but damn if I don't want a lot of tea to calm my cold and flu-ish symptoms.

Thanks, Chamomile, Throat Coat, Chai, Early Grey, Rooiboos, and other sorts of soothing yumminess in a bag. You're tea-riffic. (Bad pun. Blame it on my illness.)


  1. If you like ginger... try Yogi's ginger and lemon it is DIVINE! Sorry you';re still sick dear.

Friends with Benefits: Meet EV Originals

I love that feeling when a friend accomplishes something wonderful.

So when I heard that a friend from the Nashville, TN area who co-founded and operates a catering business decided to share her culinary talents with the masses and create a line of bottled products, EV Originals, I did a big ol' happy dance.

Some Like It Hot -- And Toasted on Both Sides

The latest news in appliances seems to indicate there's no love for the good ol' traditional Crock-Pot.
Fictional drama aside, the slow cooker most of us grew up with is receiving some healthy competition from the new hot thing, the Instapot
But in our house, we're having a face-off with a completely different category of kitchen appliances -- it's the Toaster vs Toaster Oven.

The Best Way to Keep Cannoli Fresh and Other Baltimore Stories

My mom and step-dad were up visiting for Thanksgiving and after gorging ourselves on turkey and the sites of D.C., I took them on a day-trip to Baltimore.

After a visit to my mom's favorite museum (she's a mosaic artist), we aimed for lunch at Rocket to Venus in Hampden. It was closed for lunch, but our trip up Charles St. wasn't for naught - we stumbled onto residents of 34th St. setting up their Christmas displays! This street is Christmas at its best, or worst, depending on your tolerance/interest in all things Christmas. Erin teases me for being a scrooge, but I have to admit, lights and what-not are nice at this cold and dark time of year.

After a brief walk through Hampden, we aimed for lunch at Kooper's Tavern in Fells Point. The tavern was most certainly open, with rowdy sports fans packing the bar and even spilling onto the sidewalk for fresh-shucked oysters. (My friend Gideon would have camped out right there for their Chincoteagues!) After some deliberati…
