When you have a cooking talent, a deep sexy voice and an teaching style that makes viewers think they can do what he’s doing, then it’s time you put that shit up on YouTube. Cheers to someone else cooking! Have a joyful holiday and New Year. Chef Keith: Spatchcock a Turkey Advertisements

The Reluctant Cook: Popcorn Roux

Growing up, my family ate a dish called, “Shit on a Shingle,” which simply consisted of creamed chipped beef on white toast. The first meal I made when I moved out on my own was SOS, substituting tuna for the beef, and that became a staple meal throughout my 20’s. I didn’t know it at the… Read More ›

Olympic Pickleball

Now that the 2016 Summer Olympics have concluded, I’m reflecting on the entertaining sports that I had never seen played at a competitive level and thoroughly enjoyed watching during the games (shout out to rugby sevens and handball).

The Reluctant Cook: Cutting a Chiffonade of Basil

My body has responded with indigestion problems, acid reflux, bloating, constipation or diarrhea. Nothing was working. I got tested and… Read More ›

The Stars Aligned

The message read, “Triple D (A walk in the park) or Astrid & Israh. Pizza & beer on me! Gail from California. We are in loop E, space 55. Meet us tonight (Tuesday) at Annie’s Creek Restaurant at 7:30 p.m.” I posted the note Monday on the bulletin board outside the camp store at Crater… Read More ›

Fitbit Zip update

Plenty of time for an update since April. The Fitbit Zip is holding up well. I like that it is bright green for me to find on my dresser. Yes, it did get lost amongst the clutter for awhile. But when you click on your profile and view your last 30 days it inspires you… Read More ›

Hulu is a free website with TV shows and movies. Did you know it also has exercise videos? You always need to have a plan B for working out. If you can’t make it to the gym or your workout buddy cancels then try ExerciseTV on Hulu. There are specific videos that are 3 or… Read More ›
