Early Friday Shout Out: Falafel

Scott and I are headed to a special place this weekend for a very special occasion: Charleston, SC, for a wedding in the family. Congrats, Jennifer & T.J.!

Thus no Friday Shout Out; we will be navigating Reagan National Airport and enjoying some much-needed time down South instead. Shrimp and grits, I am coming for you!!!

Here's a little moment o' zen for your Thursday: Falafel Song. If that doesn't do it for you, try Tabbouleh Song.

Yum. I love falafel. It's vegetarian, crispy, and can be covered in condiments like hummus or tahini sauce. Droooooooool. I love love love Middle Eastern food. Iran, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon - you may have trouble and strife, not to mention some serious female repression issues, but I do enjoy your cuisine.

Get some falafel up in your torso.... that video is so special.

I don't have one of those, so I don't know what that's all about, but if you're out there, seeker of nasty husband info, I hope you found what you're looking for - both online and in your love life!!!

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…
