A year ago, my friend and former blog partner Joe (a.k.a. J-Unit) had a bachelor party up in Lake Tahoe. It was a pretty fun bro weekend full of beer pong, barbecuing, and a forest fire (unrelated to the barbecuing). With the area full of smoke, we spent a lot of time indoors, and thankfully […]

My mom, who likes to call herself C-Side, explained to me that more than any other tomes, these two cookbooks elevated her culinary education. This was all […]
A most welcome surprise came for me this afternoon: a friend of mine sent me an early, unexpected birthday gift. But this wasn’t any ordinary gift. It was Dress-Up Cat Magnets.
