No More Plain Vanilla

The last time we had something over a hundred years old in our kitchen, she died. (R.I.P., Nana.) But now our spices have new friends on the rack—vanillas and flavor extracts from Nielsen-Massey. The company has been crafting superior products since 1907 and they’re easily the best we’ve ever used. They sent us a couple bottles in the mail and we thought, great, somebody’s forcing us to break out the muffin tins and cookie sheets.…


Downward Facing Wet Dog

SUP, dudes. Namaste. Shalom. Standup paddleboarding (SUP) meets yoga today at the Jewish Community Center of Dallas (The J) and you’ve gotta check it out. If you’re a fan of yoga and you’ve yet to try it while floating on a paddleboard, you’re missing out. The gentle motion of the water adds to the tranquility and peacefulness while adding a tiny touch of added difficulty. Paddleboard Aqua Yoga is great on the open water, but…

The 701 Club: Barbie, Bette & Bernie

Hearken Ye to the throne of prayer, dear readers, as I offer inspired thoughts on today’s issues. Barbie: The Barbie Doll, that paragon of perfection, poise and primness, has just had a makeover. I’m not sure how I feel about this. On the one hand, it’s a blessing that children who idolize Barbie can now know that striving to look like her is an unnecessary goal. However, with “curvy” Barbie, are we encouraging these children…

Let Me Say This About That

The Way We Were

The other day I watched that old Streisand/Redford movie and remembered seeing it when it first came out. So I went tripping down Memory Lane, which is one of my favorite haunts. Back when I still thought Barbra was everything (and maybe I still do somewhere deep down), she asked if it was all so simple then. Well, Babs, it may have been. Take grocery stores, for example. The most complicated thing about going was…

The Sport Of Queens

Here’s one for the old gay bucket list. Last year we had the thrill of attending International Gay Polo Week in the Palm Beaches, Florida. And though we reserve this particular adjective for only the most appropriate occasions, it was indeed quite Fabulous! (with a capital F, exclamation point and everything). The 7th annual event runs March 31 through April 3, 2016 and features a Gay Polo League “Polotini” party, Sunday brunch and the big…

Maple Bourbon Carrots

I’ve have never been huge fans of cooked carrots. But, like all of life’s problems, food or otherwise, I always find sugar and/or hard liquor are an excellent solution. This recipe takes a page from both.           Sure, they’re supposed to be great for you’re eyesight, but (not to be dramatic) I’d would normally rather be stabbed in the eyes than see these on my dinner plate.      Plus, this normally blah vegetable now utilizes another one…

Don’t Complain; Don’t Explain

How are those New Year’s resolutions going for you? Not so good? I resolved to address my co-dependent relationship with carbs, but that’s hard to do when there’s leftover croquembouche in the kitchen. So, I’m going to focus on something that requires even more willpower. Here goes. Don’t complain; don’t explain. This seemingly simply maxim has been attributed to everyone from Disraeli to Ford (Henry, not Gerald) to Hepburn (Katharine, not Audrey). Even the Dowager Countess of Grantham has used…
