Never Leave Me to My Own Devices

image source: flydenver.com Arriving the recommended two hours prior to departure always seems like such a virtuous accomplishment. I enter the TSA PreCheck lane eager to get through security so that I can grab one last bite of Colorado cuisine before boarding my plane. Maybe even a bison burger. I’ve never eaten a bison burger […]

How Do You Stay So Thin?

How do you stay so thin? The question was innocent enough. I had been posting my food forays from France all week and believe me, when I travel to France, it’s no holds barred. It’s the one place I can enjoy a loaf of crusty glutenFUL bread and not worry that someone is going to […]

Wordless

I have been holed up in my writing cave for the past few weeks, barely coming up for air let alone those gorgeous meals I love to share. Today I sat down to write this post and I found myself kind of wordless. I know, hard to believe, right? I’m rarely at a loss for […]

Google Alert Tells Me I’m Dead

photo by Cami Flake I received a Google Alert in my inbox this past week. It informed me that I was dead. At first I thought it might be true. I’ve been feeling a little dead these past few days. So much sadness and strife in the world. Beirut. Paris. Mali. My tender psyche has […]

A Sift of Lost Faces

“Your dad appears to be exhibiting some passive aggressive behavior. He’s ‘pocketing’ his pills.” I’m startled by the words that greet me as I take my place at the too-big table in the icy conference room, the only room in this assisted living facility that has air conditioning. My sweet, docile father. Even in his […]
